Ever since the “world’s
best golf sock” made its retail debut in 2010, Kentwool—a 169-year-old American
textile company—has been a household name for amateurs and professionals alike.
Worn by PGA Tour
standouts Bubba Watson, Matt Kuchar and Jonathan Byrd, Kentwool’s Low Profile,
Tour profile and Tour standard models distinguish the brand by utilizing the
company’s proprietary “WINDspun” merino wool yarn to ensure a blister-free
experience on the golf course. The socks are also odor-resistant and possess
thermoregulatory capabilities, which means feet stay cool when it’s hot and
warm when it’s cold.
Now, you don’t
even have to play golf to appreciate Kentwool’s 19th Hole Collection,
which debuted earlier this week at the PGA Expo in Las Vegas. All of the
comfort and technology of Kentwool’s previous sock models have been
incorporated into a sleeker and more sophisticated “clubhouse casual” package;
namely, argyle patterns and stripes in bright, vibrant colors.
