Demand for golf clothing to rise as UK excels at the sport?

Demand for golf clothing could be set to rise as UK residents take up the sport following the nation's recent successes.

Rory McIlroy's win at the US Open has created a feeling of national pride and could see an influx of youngsters embracing the sport, especially as McIlroy himself is only 22.

There are currently four Englishmen in the top 14 golfers in the world, with Luke Donald and Lee Westwood ranking first and second respectively. This kind of success puts golf miles ahead of sports such as tennis, where there are no Brits in the top 100 apart from Andy Murray, and football, where the national sides have had limited success in recent years.

Speaking to the Daily Telegraph, Peter Dawson, chief executive of the R&A, which funds golf development, said: “We do seem to be in something of a golden stage for British professional golf.

 “The game does appear to have got it right in a number of areas."

He added that a number of grassroots projects aimed at getting youngsters into the game are already up and running.

People interested in taking up golf may also be inspired by the news that experts are touting McIlroy to be the highest paid sportsman in the world over the course of his career, on the back of his recent win.
