The fight to sup­ply Team Europe’s Ry­der Cup out­er­wear is al­ways hotly con­tested, and many fans will be happy to see that not only has Galvin Green come out on top this time, but also that the fruits of its labours are now avail­able to the golf­ing public.

The wa­ter­proof suit was se­lected by Dar­ren Clarke, and is joined by a short-sleeved top and a wind­stop­per.

Galvin Green has made the Ry­der Cup C-KNIT jacket ul­tra-light­weight at 260g, with a stretch Gore-Tex fabric pro­vid­ing mo­bil­ity and pro­tec­tion. It also has a smooth feel to help it glide on over your clothes.

The three-layer con­struc­tion adds dura­bil­ity, with the ad­justable cuffs and waist al­low­ing a per­fect fit. The jacket is also avail­able in a short-sleeved ver­sion, with both mod­els fea­tur­ing the Euro­pean flag on the neck, plus the of­fi­cial Ry­der Cup shield on the chest.

Match­ing wa­ter­proof trousers weigh in at 350g and are made from the same ul­tra-light­weight stretch Gore-Tex fabric.

They have wa­ter-re­pel­lent zips on the front pock­ets and leg open­ings, and two cov­ered back pock­ets to aid prac­ti­cal­ity. An elas­ti­cated waist with a draw­string en­sures a good fit, with a sil­hou­ette of the Ry­der Cup tro­phy adding style.

A Soft-Shell Gore Wind­stop­per com­ple­ments the other gar­ments, with a wind­proof mem­brane and a mois­ture-man­age­ment in­ner layer mak­ing it a ver­sa­tile op­tion.
