Americans will sport classic look at Ryder Cup

By Randall MellSeptember 17, 2010, 9:57 pm

It's got to be a first in American Ryder Cup history.

U.S. Captain Corey Pavin said cornflower will be among the team colors his men will wear in the matches Oct. 1-3 at Celtic Manor in Wales.

U.S. Ryder Cup apparelLisa Pavin, Corey’s wife, gets the largest credit for arranging the uniform selections. The Saturday match-play ensemble includes a 4-ply cornflower-colored cashmere cardigan sweater with a colorful team patch. Cornflower looks similar to lavender. 

“I think Lisa and I are really pleased with the way the uniforms turned out,” Pavin said Friday in a teleconference. “We had a vision of what we wanted, and Lisa made it happen and she was involved in it a lot. But there are a lot of cool things about the uniform. It's kind of an old-school look. It's kind of a retro-look, but with a modern twist to it. There are some cool things. There's a felt patch on the chest that's unique and different, and I'm really pleased with the way the uniforms turned out.”

Golf Digest style guru Marty Hackel raved about the uniform selections developed with Peter Millar and Hickey Freeman.

“What's clear from the presentation is that Lisa Pavin spent a great deal of time over the last two years interacting with the various design companies to create a historically respectful, classic but modern collection using current materials,' Hackel wrote on GolfDigest.com. 'As opposed to the simple red, white and blue motif of past teams, the Pavins made an effort to infuse a fresh palette . . .

“A lot of thought went into selecting the appropriate typeface that'll be used on rain wear and team bags. Think New York Yankees, circa 1936.'

Two weeks after his successful return to competition at the Hero World Challenge, Tiger Woods’ 2018 schedule may be coming into focus.

Golfweek reported on Saturday that Woods hopes to play the Genesis Open in February according to an unidentified source with “direct knowledge of the situation.”

Woods’ agent Mark Steinberg declined to confirm the 14-time major champion would play the event and told GolfChannel.com that Woods – who underwent fusion surgery to his lower back in April – is still formulating his ’18 schedule.

Woods’ foundation is the host organization for the Genesis Open and the event supports the Tiger Woods Learning Center in Anaheim, Calif.

The Genesis Open would be Woods’ first start on the PGA Tour since he missed the cut last January at the Farmers Insurance Open.
