Golf Arm Sleeves - Reasons Golfers Prefer Arm Sleeves

There are many reasons why golfers like to wear quality UV compression arm sleeves. In fact, you can read all about that in the post “Why golfers wear golf arm sleeves!” in which ten different golfers and their unique reasons are profiled. But why do golfers prefer these arm sleeves over just wearing long sleeve shirts? Here are a few reasons.

#1: Freedom of movement

Unlike a long sleeved shirt that covers the shoulder, golf arm sleeves only cover the arm from the wrist to just below the shoulder. This means that there will be complete freedom of movement with no restriction in the shoulders. With long sleeved shirts, especially body-fitting long sleeve shirts, the tight fit of the shirt restricts the movement of the arms. This is not a problem for sports and activities such as snow skiing, football, baseball, or hunting and fishing where different muscle groups are active. But for golf, restriction in arm movement can lead to tension causing an incomplete back swing and a hurried downswing. For this reason, most golfers don’t like to layer up. Golf arm sleeves provide performance and protection without compromising freedom of movement.

#2. Compression

Golf arm sleeves provide compression whereas most long sleeved body-fitting shirts do not. The compression in golf sleeves keeps your muscles relaxed and refreshed. This helps to prevent tension in the golf swing and promotes a one piece connected feeling between the golf club and your arms. Many golfers find that quality arm sleeves help you keep the arm triangle of your golf swing together. Long sleeved shirts are just an added layer.

#3. Cooling

Most long sleeved sports shirts are intended for warmth and they act as a second layer, an under layer. Others are thinner and offer light compression and support. But typically, long sleeved shirts do not offer cooling benefits. On the other hand, quality UV compression arm sleeves do. When you wear quality compression arm sleeves it feels as if you have air conditioning for your arms.

#4. UV Protection

Some long sleeved sports shirts offer UV protection, but UV arm sleeves are designed to offer extreme UV protection keeping your arms safe from the harmful UV rays of the sun.

#5. Convenience

Golf arm sleeves are very convenient. You can keep a pair in your bag to slip on when needed. You can wear golf sleeves with any golf shirt. And unlike a long sleeved shirt that typically requires laundering after each wear, you can wear your golf sleeves and simply hand wash them as needed.

#6. Style

And yes, there is style. Golf arm sleeves are stylish. They come in many colors, styles, and print patterns. Golf arm sleeves not only add function and performance to your already existing wardrobe of short sleeved golf shirts, but they give your shirts a new, stylish look.

Summary

Whether you are an avid golfer that is serious about your game or just an occasional golfer that from time to time enjoys hitting the links, if you are not already playing with golf arm sleeves you might want to give them a try..!
