Who was on point? Who had the fashion yips? GolfThreads breaks down the best and the worst of style from the first round of the PGA Championship.

Fashion Dimes


Tyrrell Hatton (J.Lindeberg Golf)
Two unique colors that work great together. Very well balanced use of color. The plum belt was a smart choice.


Luke Donald (RLX Ralph Lauren)
Speaking of belts, notice how Luke Donald’s belt appears to be an extension of his shirt. Smooth.


Billy Horschel (RLX Ralph Lauren)
Brilliant multi-colored print shirt. Appropriate use of the white belt. More on Billy Horschel’s apparel script.


Harris English (Peter Millar)
Kickin’ it old school like an old fool in that rope hat. Well-tailored polo. Periwinkle trousers are a stylish alternative to navy blue. The navy canvas and brown leather belt is a perfect complement to the pants.


Adam Scott (Uniqlo)
Vintage Adam Scott. Clean, classic, effortless.


Morgan Hoffmann (Greyson/Druh Belts/FootJoy)
A well played pairing of navy and royal blues. Killer kicks. Smart belt selection. More on Morgan Hoffmann’s apparel script.


Johan Kok
No idea who Johan Kok is, but this look is worth emulating. No hat. Tonal Belt. Effortless and athletic style.


Brooks Koepka (FootJoy)
Colorful 5-pocket pants are on trend. Matching vibrant blue chest stripe nicely ties the shirt to the pants.


Ryan Moore (Linksoul/True Linkswear)
Effortless style at its best. Grey belt creates a smooth transition between the striped shirt and khakis. True Linkswear shoes put a modern spin on the traditional saddle shoe.


Rickie Fowler (Puma Golf)
Rickie being Rickie. Bold and athletic, yet crisp and clean. More on Rickie Fowler’s apparel script.

Fashion Crimes


Sergio Garcia
Wow! Those pants are too wide and too long. Plus, the white belt destroys the continuity of the look. Pull it together, Sergio.

Tiger Woods
Tiger’s white belt is tragic. He would have looked sharp with a dark grey belt.

Rory McIlroy
I feel like I need to take a stand on the fuchsia color palette. While I like the color, especially on the pants, I would have paired it with navy instead of grey. Check out this palette at ColorCombos.com and tell that it isn’t better than the grey. Thumbs up on the shoes, though. More on Rory McIlroy’s apparel script.

Geoff Ogilvy
Say it isn’t so, Geoff. A brown belt with black shoes??? That’s fashion 101.

Patrick Reed
Patrick, you were scripted to wear a black belt. Don’t veto the designer!

Hideki Matsuyama
Another cool look ruined by, you guessed it, a white belt.

John Daly
As a San Francisco Giants fan, I just can’t endorse these pants. How about a little love for the defending World Series champs, JD?
