- THE PLAYERS Championship is receiving major treatment from Adidas Golf and Puma Golf this year, which are outfitting their top players in the hottest styles and coolest fabrics for Summer 2016 at TPC Sawgrass. Our Style Insider gives you a look at what Jason, Dustin, Sergio and Rickie will be wearing. (Images courtesy of Puma Golf & Adidas)
Rickie Fowler (Puma Golf)
Rickie Fowler looks to defend his PLAYERS Championship title in fresh looks (see image, above) from Puma Golf’s Spring/Summer 2016 Collection. His script is highlighted by two pairs of tricked out kicks. In the first round, Rickie will turn up the volume on a monochromatic kit with the addition of a limited edition pair of two-colored TITANTOUR IGNITE Tricks shoes. A day-glow pink bill on the hat and highlighter yellow hue on the belt buckle coordinate with eye-catching shoes to complete 2015 champion’s look.
The Tricks shoes make an appearance again in the final round in the form of an orange and pink colorway that was made exclusively for Fowler. Since Rickie is sporting a pink polo on Sunday in honor of THE PLAYERS Championship Pink Out tradition, the bespoke shoes allow him to work in a splash of his signature Sunday Orange.
Fowler’s slightly more subdued looks on Friday and Saturday include bold color-blocked designs and vibrant stripes, and feature one of Puma’s main color stories for the season – surf the web blue and gecko green.
Jason Day (Adidas Golf)
Summer is just around the corner and Adidas Golf is using THE PLAYERS Championship to showcase its fresh colors, new designs and innovative fabric technologies for the season. In each of the four rounds, Jason Day will sport the new Climacool® 3-Stripes Polo in Adidas’ key colorways for summer – stone, mineral blue, shock mint, and eqt pink.
These classic, yet sporty looks are consistent with what we have seen from Day over the years. That being said, it is great to see him adding pops of energetic colors to his looks, rather than relying on the traditional colors he typically see him wearing.
Dustin Johnson (Adidas Golf)
Don’t let the classic looks of Dustin Johnson’s polos fool you. The contrasting plackets and collars offer an old school vibe, but the technology is cutting edge. Like Day, DJ will sport shirts constructed from Adidas’ lightweight, breathable and moisture wicking Climacool fabric.
Johnson, along with Day and Garcia, will pair their respective tops with the brand’s new Ultimate Pant. ‘Ultimate’ is a fitting name, as this new and innovative pant is not only loaded with technology to beat the heat, but it also offers some serious style to keep you on trend this season. Featuring a stretch waistband with silicone gripper, moisture-wicking and water resistant stretch fabrication, and snag-free micromesh pockets, this pant offers a modern fit and a clean silhouette.
Sergio Garcia (Adidas Golf)
The 2008 PLAYERS Champion has never shied away from bold and colorful outfits, which is why the ombre striped polos and the vibrant hues are a perfect fit for him. Garcia is no stranger to the leaderboard at TPC Sawgrass, so expect that eqt pink polo to get plenty of airtime late on Sunday afternoon.
Look for Garcia, Day and Johnson to complete their looks every day with Adidas’ TOUR360 BOOST shoes that combine the brand’s 360Wrap design and responsive BOOST cushioning material.
