What are the best golf socks for maximum on-course comfort? 

When it comes to comfort, it’s important to get the basics right – so we decided to put together a guide for one of golf’s most famously overlooked wardrobe components: socks.

There’s nothing quite so dispiriting as trudging from one hole to the next with feet that are too damp, too cold or too sweaty. However, with the right pair of golf socks you can wave goodbye to any unnecessary on-course discomfort, enabling you to focus more attentively on the game in-hand.
