Jamie Lovemark (Nike Golf)
Lovemark sported my favorite look of the week – not only because it was well put together, but also because it was perfect for the hot and humid conditions. The added a hit of color, and the lighter hue kept things light and airy. The gray belt pulled the entire outfit together as it blended well with the pants and it mimicked the stripe on the shirt.
Henrik Stenson (Hugo Boss), Jimmy Walker (FootJoy) & Dustin Johnson (Adidas Golf)
With all the talk of scorching heat and humidity, it was surprising to see so many players stepping out in black-on-black ensembles. While you can never go wrong with a basic monochromatic look, like Jimmy Walker, adding a splash of a vibrant contrasting color, like Stenson and DJ, can take the look to the next level.
Rickie Fowler (Puma Golf)
Rickie creates a lot of buzz with bright colors and daring patterns, but it is actually his simplest set-ups that are his best. For example, the tonal print on his shirt and the tone-on-tone logo on his cap bring an added dimension to his look, while still keeping it understated.
Rory McIlroy (Nike Golf)
Nike led the way in the color department with a sweet mix of light and dark greens. This is an interesting color story that creates a smooth transition from the warmer summer days to cooler autumn months. If there is one chic color to add to your wardrobe this fall, make it a deep dark teal.
Jason Day (Adidas Golf)
It is no secret that Jason Day and Tiger Woods have become texting buddies, but it seems like Woods may be influencing Day’s sartorial selections, too. This red and black kit is one of the strongest we’ve seen from the current World #1. The color-blocking and contrasting sleeves are modern and athletic, and the fit is on point. It even looks like Day is sporting some slimmer trousers.
Kevin Na (Elord) & Bubba Watson (Oakley)
What was once an edgy pattern has now become a mainstream element in the game of golf. Kevin Na took a subtle approach to camo with a gray and white print on the collar. Bubba, on the other hand, proved that you can't have too much of a good thing by going double camo.
Billy Horschel (RLX Ralph Lauren)
Another major championship Sunday, another bold print from Billy Horschel. Granted, Horschel’s trousers may have resembled that print on your grandmother’s curtains, but he owned the look. No one is better at rockin’ crazy patterns than Horschel because he keeps the rest of his look simple and balanced.
Justin Thomas (Polo Ralph Lauren)
Then again, fellow Ralph Lauren ambassador Justin Thomas is giving Horschel a run for his money. JT continues to show up with fresh looks, like this all-over print polo and these botanical britches. Similar to Horschel, Thomas keeps everything in check with solid color pairings.
One of the great parts of major championships is that we get to see players from around the world that we typically don’t see. Ikeda certainly stood out from the crowd in a series of stylish looks including these checked pants.
Anirban Lahiri (Chervo)
Blues, grays and black create a strong foundation for your golf wardrobe. Once you have the basics figured out, though, you need a few pieces that will add some swagger to your game. Take a cue from Anirban Lahiri and dial things up with a pair of colorful trousers and wear them with a neutral colored shirt.
Harris English (Peter Millar)
Timeless looks may never go out of fashion, but they do need modern tweaks to remain relevant. English is one of the best at fusing contemporary details with classic styles. Notice how he combined modern slim 6-pocket pants and braided belts with old school kicks and a retro visor.
