Who wore it best in the winner’s circle in 2015? Our Style Insider breaks down the best winning looks of the year.
10. Jimmy Walker (FootJoy)
Lei-man. It is not unusual for players to select an outfit that complements the Green Jacket on Masters Sunday, but Jimmy Walker may have been the first player to select a shirt to complement the victory lei at the Sony Open. Then again, based on Walker’s track record at Waialae, he should always be planning for a trophy ceremony.
9. Smylie Kaufman (Polo Ralph Lauren)
Classic Smylie. More and more of the stylish young guns on the PGA TOUR are turning to classic looks. While hoisting the trophy at the Shriners Hospital for Children Open, Smylie Kaufman showed how a simple, timeless setup could still be relevant and fashionable in 2015.
8. Chris Kirk (TravisMathew)
Cool Hand Chris. Minimalist looks are in, and few pull them off better than Chris Kirk. What really took his winning look to the next level at Colonial, though, was the tailoring of his shirt and pants.
7. Kevin Kisner (Bobby Jones)
Striking a Cord. Corduroy doesn't get much play on the links, but Kevin Kisner made these pants look right at home while capturing his first PGA TOUR victory at The RSM Classic. He gets extra credit for the tone-on-tone exotic belt, which added some texture to this solid kit.
6. Jordan Spieth (Under Armour)
Fitting In. Jordan Spieth upgraded his style in 2015 with slimmer fitting pants and a few nips and tucks in his polos. There was no better example of this than the trim-fitting outfit he sported while winning the Valspar Championship. That braided belt was on point, too!
5. Alex Cejka (Iliac Golf)
Less is More. When wearing bold colors and patterns, a little goes a long way. Alex Cejka obviously got the memo at the Puerto Rico Open as the tartan pattern on his placket and collar added personality without being over the top.
4. David Lingmerth (J.Lindeberg Golf)
Modern at the Memorial. If you've been living under a rock for a few years and you want to know what modern golf fashion is all about, then check out David Lingmerth's winning look at the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide Insurance. Monochromatic looks are trending, and so are razor-sharp fits, cutting-edge fabrics and classic details. Lingmerth incorporated all of these.
3. Dustin Johnson (Adidas Golf)
Chromed Out. DJ rocked monochromatic looks throughout the year and this navy kit at the WGC-Cadillac Championship was the best of the bunch. The white hat and shoes nicely framed and balanced the entire look.
2. Graeme McDowell (G-Mac by Kartel)
Sophistication at its Finest. Graeme McDowell is known for his elegant style, and this winning look at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba was vintage G-Mac. This simple and sharp setup is easy for amateurs to copy. Just make sure the fit is as on point as McDowell's.
1. Rickie Fowler (Puma Golf)
Winning in Pink. Rickie Fowler answered his critics at THE PLAYERS Championship in emphatic style while trading his signature Sunday orange for Mother's Day pink. Fowler's well-balanced and energetic look featured one of the biggest trends in 2015 -- six-pocket pants.
