Folding a golf shirt properly will guarantee fewer wrinkles and they'll take up less storage space. Golf shirts may be long-sleeved or short-sleeved, each requiring its own specific folding instructions. Although you could fold your golf shirts the same way you fold your old T-shirts, doing so will ensure that your golf shirts are wrinkled and the collars are not straight. If you cannot hang up your golf shirts in a closet or need to pack them for travel, keep them neat and smooth by folding them properly.
Folding Short-Sleeved Golf Shirts
Fasten any buttons on the shirt. Some golf shirts will have a few buttons toward the collar, while others will not.
Lay the golf shirt on a flat surface, such as a table or bed. Place the shirt with the front side down on the surface.
Fold the left side of the shirt horizontally toward the middle, making the fold about one inch from the collar. Fold the left sleeve in half toward the left seam of the shirt.
Fold the right side of the shirt horizontally toward the middle, just as you did the left side. Fold the right sleeve in half toward the right seam of the shirt.
Fold the bottom end of the shirt up toward the middle, about three to five inches. Fold the bottom of the shirt again, bringing it up toward the middle of the shirt until the end meets the shoulder spread of the shirt.
Flip the shirt back over to the front for storage.
Folding Long-Sleeved Golf Shirts
Fasten any buttons on the front of the shirt. Lay the shirt face down on a flat surface.
Fold the left sleeve straight across in to the middle of the back of the shirt. Fold the right sleeve in straight across to the middle of the back of the shirt, laying it on top of the left sleeve. Be sure not to fold the side seams of the shirt while folding in the sleeves.
Fold the left side in to the middle of the shirt. Fold the right side to the middle of the shirt.
Fold the sleeves of the shirt again. Bring the side seams of the shirt in so that they are even from the shoulder to the hem of the shirt, meeting right under the shirt's collar. This will form a broad “V” shape in the center of the back of the shirt.
Bring the bottom of the shirt up toward the top, folding it in half lengthwise. The bottom edge of the shirt should sit just below the bottom of the collar. Fold the bottom in half again, if you wish, to fold the shirt up smaller.
