When most people think of sun protection, they think of sunscreen. While sunscreen is an important part of a sun protection strategy, clothing is your best protection in the sun. Clothing offers a nonchemical physical barrier to the sun.
New garments have an Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) rating. A garment with a UPF rating blocks both UVA and UVB rays and you don’t have to worry about when you apply sunscreen or reapplying sunscreen to those areas that are covered. Many new UPF garments also moisture wick so they help to keep you cool as well. UPF clothing is a win, win, win for you on the course.
The Sun SafeTee Program is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides sun protection and skin cancer awareness programs specifically to the golf community. Sun SafeTee has received endorsements from Mr. Arnold Palmer, Hunter Mahan, Annika Sorenstam, Johnson Wagner and many others.
