This past Saturday, PGA TOUR players got their blue on in support of the Zurich Classic's Autism Awareness Day. We saw everything from traditional navy blues to trendy aquas -- and everything in between.
Here's a look back at the 'Blue Out' and examples of how you can incorporate the color blue into your on-course looks this spring from the PGA TOUR's best.
My favorite look goes to the eventual winner of the Zurich Classic, Seung-Yul Noh (Nike Golf). I'm usually not a fan of the white-on-white look, but there is just enough blue in the shirt to keep Noh from looking like the neighborhood milkman. Besides, those diagonal stripes are edgy and different than the usual horizontal stripes we typically see on TOUR. (Stan Badz/PGA TOUR)
Robert Allenby offers a simple and easy look for us amateurs to copy this spring. If you are going to buy one shirt this season, make it an aqua one. This is the 'it' color of the season. Also, notice the fit of Allenby's shirt -- the shoulder and sleeves hit perfectly. (Stacy Revere/Getty Images)
Navy blue and black is one of the trendy combos of the year and Keegan Bradley (Tommy Hilfiger) was on-point with this ensemble. Some players would have opted for a white belt with this look, but Keegan made the smart choice with the black belt. As for the yellow Jordans? They show Bradley's support for his beloved Boston Bruins in the NHL Playoffs. (Stan Badz/PGA TOUR)
Stripes on stripes on stripes. This bold and clean look was part of Paul Casey's (Nike Golf) charge up the leaderboard. I'm seeing more and more shirts with all-over stripes. Shirts, like this one from Casey, will be one of the trendy looks of the summer. (Chris Graythen/Getty Images)
The light blue color of Bud Cauley's (Greg Norman Collection) polo is perfect for the season and the fit is impeccable. What really caught my eye were the checked pants, though. Remember, stick with solid shirts if you are going with patterned pants. (Chris Graythen/Getty Images)
This is a stylish use of a colored belt by Eric Compton (Hugo Boss). The darker shade of blue not only complements his light blue pants, but it also matches his hat perfectly. The solid white shirt was a smart choice. It didn't overpower the outfit and allowed the belt to pop. (Chris Graythen/Getty Images)
Graham DeLaet (Puma Golf) shows that you don't need overly aggressive patterns and an overabundance of color to stand out from the crowd. This simple white and grey look is crisp, clean and sporty. The aqua hat brings just enough color to the outfit and takes it from drab to dramatic. (Chris Graythen/Getty Images)
Gray is always a great complement to aqua, as Charley Hoffman (Travis Mathew) shows here. What really grabbed my attention were the wingtip shoes, though. The gray belt was also a nice touch. (Chris Graythen/Getty Images)
Do you prefer traditional styles and colors? If so, Brooks Koepka (FootJoy) is a great example of how you can combine classic looks with contemporary fits. (Stacy Revere/Getty Images)
This bright aqua blue from Justin Rose (Ashworth) is a fresh color for spring and the shoes add a touch of sportiness to the look. Gone are the days of having to match your hat, belt and shoes. Check out how the 2013 U.S. Open Champion matched his hat to his pants here. This provides a nice balance of color. (Stacy Revere/Getty Images)
Will Wilcox (Under Armour) provided his own take on the all-over striped polo. Also, take note of his well-tailored sleeves and simple belt buckle. Of course, that high-octane, yellow golf ball is hard to miss, too. (Chris Graythen/Getty Images)
