Rory McIlroy (Nike Golf) & Paul Casey (Nike Golf)
(See images, above) Teal is the real deal this fall and Nike Golf had all of its players decked out in the trendy color at East Lake. While we saw brighter, more vibrant teals in the spring, these deep, saturated hues are dominating the fairways this fall. If you are looking to add the ‘it’ color to your wardrobe this season, go grab some teal.
Dustin Johnson (Adidas golf)
Dustin Johnson didn’t cash in with the FedEx Cup title, but he did have a Johnny Cash vibe working on Saturday in this black-on-black ensemble. Nobody does monochromatic looks better than DJ these days, and the cooler fall months are the perfect time of the year to work head-to-toe black or navy blue kits into your repertoire. Take a cue from Dustin and frame your monochromatic kits with white shoes and a white hat for a more dramatic effect.
Jordan Spieth (Under Armour)
White pants after Labor Day? Of course. Jordan Spieth and other PGA TOUR players know that you dress for the climate, not the calendar. Those who tell you any different may still be using a persimmon driver and a balata golf ball. Besides, you’ve heard of winter whites, right? With temperatures topping out at 90 degrees at the TOUR Championship, Jordan’s crisp white trousers were the smart choice on several levels. (Spoiler alert: Expect the U.S. Ryder Cup Team to be wearing white pants on Saturday at Hazeltine. The horror!)

With $10 million on the line, it was clear that many players had their mind on their money, and their money on their mind. From neon and lime hues to grassy tones, many players worked the color of money into their scripts and reminded us that green is an underutilized color in the game of golf.
Jason Day (Adidas Golf) & Adam Scott (Uniqlo)
Timeless looks never go out of style. Instead, they receive fresh updates to keep them current. Jason Day and Adam Scott proved this by wearing polos with contrasting plackets and collars. Both put a contemporary spin on the retro design with slim, modern fits.
Ryan Moore (Linksoul)
Speaking of classic looks, here’s a shirt that every golfer should have in his wardrobe. The chest pocket polo is a throwback to the vintage styles of the Golden Era and it works as well off the course as it does on it.
Kevin Kisner (AG Green Label & House of Fleming Belts)
A belt is an accessory. As much as I talk about matching your belt to your shirt or your pants for a super smooth look, the most important thing is that it coordinates with the rest of your outfit. Kevin Kisner’s belt doesn’t match his pants or shirt, but it still ties his look together and adds some much-needed texture.
Kevin Na (Elord)
Kevin Na has quietly had many of the most daring looks on the PGA TOUR this year. Whether you are down with the dizzying magic eye print polo or not, the style takeaway here is to limit the number of bold pieces in your outfit to just one. Keep the rest of your kit clean and simple like Na did in the first round.
Justin Thomas (Polo Ralph Lauren)
The biggest style story to come out of East Lake had nothing to do with apparel or footwear. Instead, it had everything to do with Justin Thomas parting ways with his 1970’s playoff duster that he affectionately called “Johnson,” in honor of renowned mustache grower and PGA TOUR player, Johnson Wagner. What do JT and Rickie have in store for the 2017 FedEx Cup run? Handlebars? Fu Manchus? Muttonchops? Maybe a consult with Craig Stadler is in order.
