Like many revolutionary products, the World's Best Golf Sock was born out of need. More specifically, out of discomfort...extreme discomfort. On a sunny South Carolina spring day in 2008, KENTWOOL CEO Mark Kent was on the eighteenth hole at the BMW Charity Pro-Am, in what should have been one of high points of his long (not necessarily illustrious) golf career.
After a superb drive, and with dogged determination, he was in position to Eagle the challenging 18th hole, thus securing a position in the Final Round of Play. But instead of having clear focus and concentrating on the next shot, he couldn't take his mind off the pain of his badly blistered feet. Three days of competitive golf had left his soles battered and bleeding. "Why doesn't anyone make a better golf sock?" he asked his caddy.
The caddy's response would prove to be a game-changing question: "You run a wool manufacturing company. Why don't you go make a great golf sock?" A lightbulb moment, and the rest is history.
A new standard of performance
All KENTWOOL garments are infused with a proprietary blend of Super Fine Merino Wool yarn and combined with other premium natural and high-tech fibers. Our integrated technology process creates an optimal micro-climate feature that promotes wicking and comfort, and reduces friction, abrasion and muscle fatigue.
Merino Wool: Nature's Smart Fiber
Hypoallergenic Merino Wool is Mother Nature's smart fiber. 1) It's soft, so it feels good against you're skin. 2) It's absorbent, and will not get heavy or cause friction. 3) It's breathable, and creates a micro-climate for your body. 4) It's durable, and able to withstand the wear and tear of walking, running, exercising, and more.
FROM A GREAT IDEA, TO THE
WORLD'S BEST GOLF SOCK
Combining his love and knowledge of golf with his manufacturing background, Mark took his initial ideas and designs of "a better golf sock" to a carefully chosen group of colleagues and asked one simple question: "How do we make the world's best golf sock?" From there, his team set about to do just that. They researched, analyzed, figured, concocted, designed, and experimented. After much effort and intense testing, their dream was finally realized in late 2008.
Today, KENTWOOL has become universally regarded as the World's Best Golf Sock. In terms of comfort and performance, no other sock compares. KENTWOOL socks are worn by dozens of PGA and LPGA Tour professionals, including Kevin Kisner, Ryan Moore, David Toms, Matt Kuchar, Ben Martin, Ryan Palmer and many other pros. Additionally over 100 Professional Tour caddies trust Kentwool socks to perform over a long and grueling season.
KENTWOOL socks are the only golf socks that carry a Lifetime Blister-Free Guarantee. And like all of Kentwool's products, they are manufactured in Pickens, South Carolina in the U.S.A.
