The latest data for golf apparel retail sales is now out with great news for the category. Outerwear was the only product with lower sales in September 2022 than in 2021. Furthermore, while headwear had the largest increase (+17%), men’s shirts, the largest of all golf apparel categories, was up 12%.
Not only were apparel sales up significantly from 2021 (+6%), but they are also up nearly 50% vs. 2019, indicating just how the much the category has rebounded from the depths of the pandemic.
Said Golf Datatech co-founder, John Kryznowek, “September was another good month for golf apparel, up 9.1% and increasing for the eighth consecutive month, as golfers moved back to buying in the pro shop rather than online”.
