Compression shirts

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Who here plays with compression shirts?

 

I've noticed most people playing with these take them much too large. It used to be UA's specialty but it seems like every company is making one now....

If it's hot I'll wear UA HeatGear compression shirt under my golf shirt to keep the sweat off my body, works well.  Compression shirts are sized to fit same as regular shirts, I wear a Large golf shirt, and buy large compression shirts which fits snugly as it's supposed to.

I haven't found a reason to wear a compression shirt anymore because most golf shirts are now moisture wicking. Compression shirts are great if you still wear cotton shirts but newer golf shirts no longer require a compression shirt underneath. If you sweat a ton than it might not be a bad idea and one thing I will never stop wearing is compression shorts!

That's only one reason for wearing a compression shirt. and not the best one , IMO.

 

Wearing a compression shirt can reduce muscle and body fatigue and can keep the body a little warmer than the atmosphere's temperature to prevent injury to the joints and muscles.

I’ve seen some golfers using compression arm sleeves. Do they work? Should I give them a try?

Unless the person has a history of arm injury or fatigue, I wouldn't wear one. I don't see those muscles getting that fatigued. If anything, I would say the legs get fatigued more of the golfer is walking. 

 

I think there are other rehab exercises and stretching a person can do after the round.

I've been wearing compression shirts since I strained my intercostal muscles late spring.  The compression shirts helped reduce the pain while healing and seemed to provide support to the area.  Unless I find some reason not to wear them, I'm probably just going to keep wearing them even though my intercostal is healed.
