Puma Duo-Swing Fair Isle Stripe, $85;

Nike UV Ultra, $70;
Nike's Dri-FIT jersey material keeps skin dry and cool by enabling sweat to escape to the top of the garment. Added stretch qualities increase freedom of movement during the swing, while UPF 30+ bolsters protection from the sun's rays. (Top right in photo.)

Callaway Chev Piped, $60;
The polo shirt has anti-microbial properties, UV protection and vents along the shoulders, back and underarms. Its wicking material is designed to draw moisture to the outer surface of the garment so it dries more quickly. (Middle left in photo.)

FootJoy ProDry Performance Lisle, $66;
In addition to UV sun protection and moisture-wicking properties, the Lisle has an anti-microbial finish that inhibits odor buildup and a stretchy polyester-spandex fabric blend that's wrinkle- and shrink-resistant. (Middle right in photo.)

Cutter & Buck CB DryTec L/S Powell Sun Protection, $76;
The moisture-absorbing, 100 percent polyester shirt has long sleeves and UPF 50+ so you'll be burn-free. Side vents and an "action pleat" along the back contribute to the cooling properties. (Bottom left in photo.)
