Danny Willett (Callaway Europe Apparel)
Masters Champion Danny Willett looked sharp over the four days in simple, yet sophisticated looks. On Friday and Saturday he used subtle design elements, like the rugby detailing (left) and the tone-on-tone color-blocking (center) to put a modern and athletic spin on his traditional kits. He also proved that the easiest way to look good on the course is to wear well-tailored clothes.
Green & Navy
The biggest sartorial story of this year’s Masters was the emergence of green and navy blue as the trendy color combination of the season. From layers to color-blocking and accessories, there was no shortage of unique and stylish takes on the green and navy story.
Augusta-inspired outfits often come off as being a bit contrived, but Bryson DeChambeau nailed the look with this clean and classy ensemble. Remember, a belt doesn’t need to match the rest of your outfit. It just needs to complement it.
Danny Lee (Devereux)
Over the four days, Danny Lee was consistently one of the best dressed players in the field. His modern, yet sophisticated kits brought just the right amount of color to help him stand out.
Rory McIlroy (Nike Golf)
Rory McIlory started the tournament with a sartorial tribute to Kobe Bryant and ended it in his best look of the week. A black and gold hat and matching kicks paid homage to Bryant’s career. The shoes were even inscribed with the date of Bryant’s final game (4/13). Nike Golf always refers to its players as athletes, and McIlroy certainly looked the part during the final round in this fitted vibrant blue pullover and trim white pants.
Dustin Johnson (Adidas Golf)
It is rare that we see bright colors from Dustin Johnson, which is why they are so impactful when he decides to dial it up. The exotic skin tonal belt was a smart choice, too. It created a smooth transition from top to bottom and allowed the focus to fall on the brightly colored shirt.
Smylie Kaufman (Polo Ralph Lauren)
Day after day, Smylie Kaufman stepped out in stylish looks. His scripting was perfect for Augusta – classic looks with a little green and a splash of pink.
Jordan Spieth (Under Armour)
Jordan Spieth was dressed in a very Jordan Spieth way with classic, yet modern and athletic looks. A green shirt in the opening round was a fitting way for the defending champ to start the tournament, but he saved the best for last. Sunday’s multi-stripe polo looked great on television, and the fit of his shirt and pants was on point.
Billy Horschel (RLX Ralph Lauren)
Welcome to the jungle. It wouldn’t be a major championship without some crazy pants from Billy Horschel, and he certainly did not disappoint. This jungle print with pink cheetahs, blue peacocks and green foliage was a little out there, even for him.
Emiliano Grillo (Callaway Apparel)
Many players turned to sweaters to beat the brisk and blustery conditions and Emiliano Grillo’s suitcase was obviously packed with a collection of great looking knitwear. From classic V-necks and ¼-zips to modern crew necks with color-blocking, Grillo’s sweater game was on point.
Henrik Stenson (Hugo Boss)
Henrik Stenson looked like a total boss in this navy blue monochromatic kit. The contrasting chest stripes and the tipping put a contemporary twist on this classic look. Stenson may be the only player who can look intimidating and sophisticated at the same time.
Justin Thomas (Polo Ralph Lauren)
One of the best looks of the week belonged to Justin Thomas in this blue micro-floral print shirt. These prints are trending right now, so it was a bit surprising that we didn’t see more of them.
Adam Scott (Uniqlo)
Years from now, there will be a trivia question about the first player to wear joggers during the weekend at Augusta, and the answer won’t be Rickie Fowler. Adam Scott teed it up in this monochromatic look complete with joggers.
Sergio Garcia (Adidas Golf)
Looking for a fresh pair of kicks for summer? Sergio Garcia debuted Adidas’ TOUR360 PRIME BOOST shoes. The upper features the brand’s lightweight, breathable and flexible PrimeKnit technology. Get in line now, because these will only be available in limited quantities starting June 1.
The great thing about timeless looks is that they never go out of style, and Gary Player’s signature monochromatic outfit with old school brogues never gets tired. If you are looking for a go-to look, this isn’t a bad one to copy.
