CARLSBAD, CA – When the weather heats up, PUMA has golfers covered, delivering performance when and where it really matters. Today, PUMA Golf introduced its most hi-tech collection of polos created with MATTR, a performance fabric designed for maximum comfort no matter the climate or conditions. Each MATTR polo in the 2021 Spring Summer Collection features a technical hand-feel, eye-catching graphics, a supreme fit, and is designed to provide superior performance in even the hottest, most humid conditions. Beginning today, MATTR polos will be available in men’s, women’s and junior styles.

MATTR, which stands for Materials, Technology, Research, is a hi-tech, moisture-wicking, fast-drying fabric, with a breathable four-way stretch design and a lightweight feel, giving the golfer everything needed to perform at the highest levels without restricting mobility. MATTR polos are perfect for wear year-round with cool, classic golf style, but shine particularly in warmer weather thanks to its moisture-wicking properties and ability to keep sweat at bay.

“Our MATTR fabric is all about performance; this polo is what you reach for when you need to eliminate distractions, stay cool, calm and collected, and be ready to perform your best. MATTR delivers a ton of stretch for freedom of movement and enhanced breathability, keeping players cool on a hot day so they can focus on playing well and enjoying the game.” said Chris MacNeill, Senior Product Line Manager, PUMA Golf.
