Company introduces exclusive line of UPF-50+ UV blocking golf apparel

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Oct. 6, 2016 -- Excessive exposure to the sun's burning rays is a dangerous and often overlooked health issue for recreational and professional golfers. In response, coLLo Apparel (http://www.colloapparel.com/) has introduced its new line of high performance, UPF 50+ sunblocking men's golf shirts.

"As a golfer, I was frustrated by the lack of options for protecting myself from skin cancer, especially my neck," said Tom Hurst, coLLo founder, and president. "That led me to launch coLLo and design our unique collars. Nearly 3.7 million cases of skin cancer are diagnosed each year, and the risks for golfers are exceptionally high. We're serious about protecting golf players from UV radiation, and donate a percentage of every coLLo shirt sale to skin cancer research and prevention."

Golf will never be the same for two reasons. First, that Arnold Palmer lived. Second, that Arnold Palmer has died.

The single most important figure in the history of the game -- you can argue with me about this if you want, but you'd be wrong -- passed away Sunday at the age of 87. It's disorienting thinking about a world without him.

Last Friday it was our intention to put together a post recognizing the first known hole-in-one in golf history by Young Tom Morris.

While compiling information for the post, we ran into a snag. Through research, we found conflicting dates as to when the hole-in-one actually occurred.

Some publications referenced the 1868 Open Championship at Prestwick (including the World Golf Hall of Fame website), while others had it as the 1869 Open, also at Prestwick.
