Ionize Your Swing With Energy Athletic Golf Shirts

You've probably seen (and maybe even wear) one of those energizer wrist bands that promise to help you hit the ball farther, walk the course faster, and otherwise generally enjoy the brighter side of life. Now you can enjoy the same effects in a golf shirt by Energy Athletic. The secret is in the shirt's fabric, which has been treated to embed negative ions in the structure of the fabric. You can't see it, but it's there.

But don't take my word for it; none other than Paul Azinger said it enhanced his performance when he endorsed the brand. While I can't attest to the science behind the energizing effect, I can say that the shirts I tried were super comfortable, stretched and gave in all the right places during the golf swing, and looked darn good, too. In addition to the IonX treatement, the company says the fabric is wrinkle resistant and has odor-preventing, anti-microbial properties as well as moisture-wicking ability.

I wore the Energy Athletic Short during a couple of rounds and I must confess I didn't see any appreciable difference in my scores although I suspect that had more to do with several unfortunate three-putts than with my clothing. Did I hit the ball further? I didn't take any before-and-after laser readings, but it seemed to me I was getting a couple of extra yards out of my driver. I also seemed to swing more freely. Was it the shirt? Your guess is as good as mine, but it sure felt good.

A very interesting post, there is a lot of new technology that is going in to golf wear and I'm sure everyone is curious as to whether it works or not.
