Health and fitness continue to be an increasing emphasis in golf, and players on all levels are increasingly aware that the better you feel is reflected in how you play the game. Compression attire has been around for years—especially in the team sports like football and basketball—but in golf players have only taken advantage of the benefits in the last few years.
Tommie Copper, a wearable wellness brand that originated copper-infused compression sleeves and other apparel—has produced a wide-range of high-quality products for men, women and children that can take some of the aches and pains away from golf.
Tommie Copper products feature the company’s patented Copper Znergy® technology. 100% of the proprietary fabric is copper and zinc encapsulated. The proprietary 4D Lycra stretch fabric wicks away moisture to regulate body temperature and offers natural and permanent anti-odor technology inside and out by eliminating the growth of odor causing microbes. The UPF 50+ provides protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays for advanced skin health benefits.
One of their newer innovations are the Copper Cotton® products. That combines the natural performance of cotton with their patent-pending Copper Znergy® technology. The result is ultra- soft undergarments that provide comfortable, non-restrictive, compression that won’t ride up.
Tommie Copper’s compression products can be worn to provide relief from injuries caused by over swinging, overuse and over practice, poor swing mechanics, rotational stresses placed on the spine, incorrect grip and setup, etc. The apparel provides additional support to help with back and knee pain, wrist injuries, hand and finger injuries, foot and ankle injuries, arthritis and more. These compression products are great for for support on the course, but also aide in muscle recovery and circulation afterwards.
Tommie Copper compression products run the gamut from compression sleeves, long and short sleeve shirts, shorts, underwear and sleeves. The quality is impressive, as are the selection of products.
For those that want to go further, there is a Tommie Copper back support and one of the most versatile and useful undergarments we have seen for a while—the Compression Core Band. This unique piece is what it says—a large band that you pull up over your feet and up to your lumbar area. It is low profile and targets to mid and lower back areas and is constructed with 4D stretch and patent pending Copper Znergy® fabric that feels both cool and will keep you dry. It can easily be worn under a golf shirt but gives loads of extra support in the core muscle areas for those that need it.
