Intense pinks, vibrant yellows and brilliant blues dominated the fairways at the TPC Sawgrass. Throw in some skulls and a lot of snake skin, and THE PLAYERS Championship turned out to be one of the most stylish tournaments on the PGA TOUR this year. Here's a look at nine players who brought their style 'A' game to the PGA TOUR's premier event.
Looking for one of the biggest trends for summer? Follow D.H. Lee's (Le Coq Sportif) example and find a pair of printed pants or shorts.
Dustin Johnson was chillin' in polos from Adidas Golf's new ClimaChill Collection throughout the THE PLAYERS Championship. This vibrant blue shirt paired with white pants and belt provided a cool look for the season.
Here is a look to copy from Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano (Ralph Lauren). Magenta has been one of the trendy colors this year. It is more vibrant and intense than the light pinks that we have seen on the fairways the last few years. Also take note of how well his camel colored belt works with off-white chinos.
Navy is the new black and few colors work better with navy than yellow. This color combo usually results in a preppy look, but Graeme McDowell (G-Mac by Kartel) put a sophisticated spin on it with a button-down collar and classic trousers.
There's a lot to like about Harris English's (Peter Millar) look here. The fit of his clothes is impeccable. The solid navy shirt and pink pants create a simple, yet pure look. The colored cloth belt is a must-have this summer.
Bold stripes balanced against solid white pants gave Jamie Donaldson (J.Lindeberg) a sporty, sophisticated look that is perfect for summer.
Look good. Feel good. Play great. Martin Kaymer (Hugo Boss) followed this motto as he carded a record-tying 63 in the first round. The contrasting placket, collar and banded sleeve cuffs on Kaymer's polo are vintage details you'd expect to find on the fairways during the 1950s, while the side inserts offer a modern touch.
Why, yes. Those are skulls on Morgan Hoffman's (RLX) pants. This is yet another example of why printed shorts and pants will be one of the biggest trends this summer.
Phil Mickelson brought some serious swagger to the course with snake skin shoes and a matching belt (House of Fleming). If Phil wore any more snake skin, he would have been slithering down the fairways, rather than walking.
