Versatility is quickly become a primary requirement for modern golf apparel. More and more, golfers are opting to invest in pieces that can transition effortlessly from the course or range to the weekend farmers market without screaming, “I just played golf!” And to meet this demand, traditional golf brands are starting to deliver in a big way.

Puma’s latest apparel collection, “Excellent Golf Wear,” offers a seam less blend of golf and street-wear styles that are composed of performance fabrics but presented in approachable, athleisure-style silhouettes.

The collection includes staples like henley shirts, hoodies (Runway hoodie, $90, pictured) and shorts that not only look stylish but also offer an abundance of technical attributes, like moisture-wicking properties, invisible pockets, stretchy waistbands and Puma’s proprietary “Cloudspun” fabric.

The end result? A cool, casual-wear ensemble that is so comfy you’ll never want to take it off. And for today’s work-from-home warriors, the freedom to wear your cozies at home and for an impromptu nine is a welcome development indeed.
