While the modern game of golf originated in 15th century Scotland, the game's ancient origins are unclear and much debated. Some historians trace the sport back to the Roman game of paganica, in which participants used a bent stick to hit a stuffed leather ball. One theory asserts that paganica spread throughout Europe as the Romans conquered most of the continent, during the first century BC, and eventually evolved into the modern game. Players score by driving a small white plastic or wooden ball into the opposing team's goal using a long-handled mallet.
Polo shirts became so popular on golf courses; people started calling them golf shirts. Although the words "golf shirts" and "polo shirts" are used interchangeably, and the term "polo shirts" is more popular, some people prefer the term golf shirts.
Golf shirts offer the professionalism of a dress shirt and the comfort of a t-shirt. When customized with an embroidered logo or patch and given as gifts or giveaways, they are called promotional golf shirts.
Promotional golf shirts are one of the most popular promotional apparel items because they make great corporate gifts and are an excellent way to build brand recognition and promote a business.
Almost every major apparel brand offers a line of golf shirts. Some high-end brands offer golf shirts in high-performance fabrics, knitted silk or other fabrics.
Men’s golf shirts are now available in what were once considered women’s colors and women’s golf shirts are no longer smaller versions of men’s, with silhouettes made specifically for a woman’s figure.
Some of the most recognized brands of golf apparel are: Ashworth, Nike, Adidas, Ping, Greg Norman, TaylorMade, Titleist, Callaway and Arnold Palmer.

Although the most popular method of printing t-shirts is screen printing, Crooked Brook t-shirts are printed using Direct To Garment Printing (DTG) which is the process of using inkjet printers to print an image directly onto t-shirts without the use of screens like with screen printing, which requires a lot of setup e.g., creating screens for each color. In addition, DTG printing uses eco-friendly, water soluble ink, unlike some screen printing methods that layer Plastisol (a suspension of PVC particles in a plasticizer) on top of the t-shirt. The only requirement for DTG printing is for the image to be high resolution, resulting in photograph quality printing with no setup fee or minimums for custom t-shirts.
