FARMINGDALE, N.Y. – Modern foul-weather golf apparel has almost as much technology built into it as a driver. Space-age fabrics make waterproof tops and pants breathable while keeping you dry. Here is a look at what many of the golfers at the 2009 U.S. Open will be wearing. (Click on any of the images for a closer look.)

Tiger-Woods-RainGear  Nike Storm Fit Elite Jacket
 $200, nikegolf.com
 Also available in a long sleeve version ($300), this waterproof shell is lightweight and features seams that are completely sealed to keep water out. This top will be worn by Tiger Woods (left), Paul Casey and Stewart Cink.


Ian Poulter Raingear
Dry Joys Tour Rainshirt
$180, footjoy.com
With a two-year waterproof warranty, sealed zippers and Velcro adjustable cuffs, this top will be worn by Ian Poulter (right) and Adam Scott.

 

Martin Kaymer Raingear  Adidas ClimaFit Storm 3-Way Convertible Jacket
 $145, adidasgolf.com
 This jacket unzips to become a short-sleeved rain top or a vest, making it super
 versatile and ideal for golfers who play when it's chilly and when it's warm. This top
 will be worn by Sergio Garcia, Martin Kaymer (left) and Justin Rose.



Luke Donald Polo Raingear Polo RLX  Elude Waterproof Jacket

$299, ralphlauren.com
Lots of pockets, all of which are sealed, make this hi-tech jacket extremely functional. It's fitted, but features plenty of stretch through the shoulders to allow golfers to swing freely. This is the top Luke Donald (right) wears.
