Who was on point? Who was off course? GolfThreads breaks down the best and the worst of style from Day 3 (including some holdovers from the conclusion of Round 2) at the Open Championship (British Open).

Jason Day (Adidas Golf)
I’ve talked a lot about quilted ‘puffy’ jackets over the last couple of years, and Jason Day looked sharp in this one from Adidas Golf (the Climaheat Concept Fill Jacket). The insulated body keeps the core warm, while the stretchy sleeves allow for mobility.
Brooks Koepka (FootJoy)
By refusing to play on Saturday, Brooks Koepka proved that he is smarter than most R&A officials. These bright blue pants with matching accents on the custom FootJoys were equally as brilliant.
Danny Willett (Callaway)
I don’t much care for the white pants. Again, they seem too tropical for brisk conditions at St. Andrews, but they are perfectly tailored. The sweater is, too. I’m getting a few pairs of pants tailored tomorrow and I’m bringing a picture of Danny Willett with me.
David Duval (Nike Golf)
In another hold over from the marathon second round, this was a badass look from David Duval with the beanie and signature wrap-around Oakleys.
Dustin Johnson (Adidas Golf)
It is baffling to me why Adidas didn’t include outerwear pieces in its promotional scripts. Every time I turn on The Open, I see another Adidas player sporting a cool pullover, jacket, vest or sweater. Here’s the latest — the Climawarm Camo Print Layering Top with a heather blocked camo print.
Gary Woodland (Under Armour)
This pop of pink works nicely against the grey scenery around St. Andrews. The heather print adds some much needed texture and navy blue offers a great balance against the vibrant hue.
I’m surprised more brands didn’t go the pink route at The Open Championship. It really pops. This tonal pink plaid is chic and offers a strong contrast against the environment.
Bernhard Langer (Bogner)
Most people don’t think to pair red and light blue together, but they really complement each other and offer a very retro feel. When the whole field seemed to be wearing some shade of grey, Bernhard Langer stood out in this combo.
Billy Horschel (RLX Ralph Lauren)
Here is an instance when Mother Nature helped a player in the fashion department. Billy Horschel’s navy blue rain pants were a better option with this shirt than the white pants he was scripted to wear.
Henrik Stenson (Hugo Boss)
This is one smooth monochromatic kit from Henrik Stenson. The lighter shade of blue adds a bit of interest, while the gold stripes add another dimension to the overall look.

This whole base layer look isn’t working for Louis. If you are going to go with the base layer, it better be form fitting and the polo needs to follow suit.
