We know the PGA Championship is players' last shot at glory, but it's also their last shot at making a fashion statement in a major way. Here's what to expect the game's hottest stars to be wearing at this week's 93rd PGA Championship at Atlanta Athletic Club.
Nike has Tiger Woods' PGA Championship wardrobe designed to a tee for the first time for a major since we saw him in Augusta. From first glance it looks like Woods' typical sporty attire, but look closely at his Sunday script. Nike calls the Bonded Code polo Legacy Red but unless the colors are not an accurate hue, it looks more like a dark fuchsia or burgundy with a purple stripe across the chest. It's certainly far from your typical 'Dude in the Red Shirt' we are accustomed to seeing on Sundays. But then again, so is the man himself and the man on his bag.
Keeping cool and keeping it cool are the two things Fowler’s wardrobe kept in mind this week in Hotlanta. White is the staple for his first three days of competition with prominent pops of color in youthful shades of blue and then on Saturday in lime and neon green. Sunday’s all-orange ensemble is the same thing we’ve come to expect from the Oklahoma State product. For his sake let’s hope this is the week that the traffic cone look actually stops traffic and claims the hardware he came close to last week with his T-2 at Firestone.
AK’s game has shown signs of life over the last few weeks. And over the last few years, Kim’s style has grown with his hair. His script for Atlanta Athletic Club is fashion-forward but very tailored and linear in design. Over the first three days, Kim will be wearing clothes accessorized by stripes, with Friday’s black and white outfit more like something out of Travis Mathew’s look-book (think Bubba Watson) than Nike’s.
Let’s be honest, when Lucas Glover’s name comes to mind, the word “dapper” doesn't exactly rush to the forefront. His grizzly beard attracts the attention these days, so it’s smart for Nike to keep his wardrobe basic. His Thursday attire is ultra understated, bland, boyish, and boring, but as the week progresses so does the style…slightly.
We have heard from Cink’s Dove for Men commercials that “he’s comfortable in his own skin,” but how comfortable is he in these Nike looks as he tees it up at the Highlands Course at Atlanta Athletic Club? The Georgia Tech Alum returns to the city where he started his family while competing on the Yellow Jackets’ golf team and his wardrobe for the week seems to be more fitting for a student than a father of two teenagers. Cink bookends his week with graphic print polos and is definitely out of the ordinary during the meat of his week where he has an olive hue pant paired with a Binary Blue Texture Stripe Polo Friday and Saturday is rocking a bright magenta polo with a plaid patterned pant.
The slight Englishman is not a superstar but certainly dresses like a million bucks on the course. His fit in Nike apparel always looks perfectly tailored. I love the sky blue stripe polo he kicks off the week wearing. Honestly he’s one of the only men on a golf course that can pull off wearing an olive shade of green (Sobie Green, its official Nike name) which he will don on Friday. Over the weekend he’s in basic color blocking of navy and magenta, two of Nike’s main pops of color for the season.
