While attending the PGA Merchandise Show last month in Orlando, my colleagues thought perhaps I was noticing so many green-colored products because my eyes are green. That may be partially true, but in addition to the prevalent use of green in upcoming golf fashion collections, all of the inventive names for shades of the color also caught my attention. Allow me to elaborate.

Now you can understand my revitalized attraction to green. It has always been a favored color in golf fashion – I’m sure it has everything to do with being outdoors in a predominately green environment.
The psychology and symbolism of green include associations with growth, harmony, safety, nature, energy, renewal, environment – it’s also the most restful color for the human eye. (Then why hasn’t my reading of greens improved? Hmm).
The elevated use of different greens is making it a popular color this year in golf apparel and accessories. So, whatever your skin tone, style preference or personal attraction is to green, we think it’s a perfect way to see 2020.
