Dustin Johnson and Martin Laird spent time battling the elements (sort of) and showcasing adidas' new GORE-TEX outerwear early in the week at famed North Berwick Golf Club.
In what will likely end up being their only chance to play in the rain, Johnson and Laird went head-to-head in a friendly competition where each player spun a wheel to determine what "weather" their counterpart would encounter during his shot.
Using a state-of-the-art weather machine to produce the unique conditions, the two players matched each other shot-for-shot in the closet to the pin competition before Johnson prevailed in a sudden death playoff.
Adidas' GORE-TEX two-layer jacket will be available September 1 in five colorways for $325. Two-layer GORE-TEX pants will also be available September 1 in a black colorway for $250.
