Looking to freshen up your closet with clothing that keeps you cool, looks great, and will not cost you a fortune? Look no further than the latest from Antigua!
Celebrating the company’s 35th anniversary in style, The Antigua Group, one of the nation’s leading designers and marketers of lifestyle and golf apparel under the distinguished Antigua brand – has unveiled its Spring ’14 Performance 72 Golf Collection.
“Last Spring’s line was fantastic and set new sales records for Antigua. Spring 2014 looks to be even better,” said Ron McPherson, president and CEO of Antigua. “The line has vivid color, sophisticated styling and luxurious fabrics…truly a winning combination.”
If standard par performance on the course is 72, the standard for performance golf fashion collections internationally is Antigua’s Performance 72. It’s the benchmark for quality, fit, and viability of performance fabrications. It demonstrates attention to detail, highlighting just the right accents. The line is performance with style that is perfect on and off the course. To boot, the proprietary Desert Dry and Desert Dry Xtra-Lite moisture management technology will wick away moisture.
With every reputable brand there is always an athlete endorsement to garner attention and Antigua is no exception. Antigua has just extended the endorsement deal for Stacy Lewis through 2017. That means that the world number two will continue to wear Antigua as she dominates female golf for at least three more years. Antigua has also been worn by PGA and LPGA tour winners such as: Steve Stricker, Mark Brooks, Annika Sorrenstam, Bill Mayfair, and Payne Stewart.
Antigua’s Spring ’14 Performance 72 Golf Collection for men is replete with 17 shirt models, 12 outerwear tops, two shorts and seven hats. Some highlights include:

“The collection offers new color direction with a bit of sport vibe as added influence,” says Sean Gregg, director of product development and director of marketing support. “Atomic adds a punch of orange pop, Glow is a hot nod to neon, Aquarius is the cleanest of true-blues – the shade just above horizon at dusk, Aster is an imperialistic purple with a bluish lean toward regal, and Light Apple is reminiscent of an apple whipped to a sorbet.”
This collection brings an ideal fit that’s specific to golf. Attention to detail includes the likes of eliminating the sleeve cap, so that the garment performs with you and not against you, allowing golfers freedom of swing motion. We’ve also used lightweight stretch material in the outerwear to keep golfers comfortable in a wide outside temperature range.
