Rickie Fowler (Puma Golf)
Fresh Start. It didn’t take long for Rickie Fowler to create a sartorial stir in the New Year as he showed up at The Plantation Course in custom high-tops and bespoke joggers. Whether you loved them or hated them, you have to admit, the high-tops and joggers were the freshest things to hit the course in quite some time.

Jordan Spieth (Under Armour)
Same old, same old. New year, same Spieth, which was good for his game, but not his apparel. Can we please get the number one player in the world some fresher duds? Everything that Jordan sported at Kapalua felt like a rehash of 2015…because it was. Navy, gray, white, red. Striped shirts with solid pants. Zzzzzzzz…
Brooks Koepka (Nike Golf)
Nike newbie. Brooks Koepka debuted his new Nike gear in style. In fact, Koepka killed it in a variety of athletic looks from the brand all week, especially this sporty technical polo during Saturday’s round. This is looking like a great player/brand fit.
Danny Lee (Devereux)
Dapper Danny. Speaking of debuts, did you catch Danny Lee in Devereux’s proper threads? The dude looks like he was born to wear Devereux. The tailoring was on point, the styles were ultra modern, and it sure looked like his belts were from Beltology. We can’t wait to see more from Danny and Devereux.
Jason Day & Dustin Johnson (Adidas Golf)
Who wore it best? We give the advantage to DJ in this style match up, but we hope to see more of this from Jason in the future. Adding more color to his wardrobe is a good thing.
Jimmy Walker (FootJoy)
Color me good. Speaking of players who do well when flashing some color, Jimmy Walker owned these red trousers and they were a welcomed departure from his typical black and gray selections.
Brandt Snedeker (Peter Millar)
Yeah, Sneds. We’re digging that shirt, too. This variegated stripe design is a great way to add a bit of texture to your look.
Scott Piercy (J.Lindeberg Golf)
Feeling the blues. Blue-on-blue is shaping up to be one of the hottest combos of the year, and what better backdrop to showcase it than the Pacific Ocean. Piercy executed the look to perfection with modern details (that braided belt) and a well tailored fit.
Graeme McDowell (G-Mac by Kartel)
Release the hounds(tooth). Prints of all shapes and sizes are trending this spring, and Graeme McDowell showed how you can make a classic setup look ultra modern with this macro houndstooth pattern.
Justin Thomas (Polo Ralph Lauren/FootJoy)
Going brogue. We don’t see many brown shoes on the course these days, but after checking out Justin Thomas’ brown brogues, we want to see more. This is an all-around great kit from JT. The white cotton trousers, green shirt and thin brown belt are all on point.
Matt Every (Johnnie-O)
West Coast prep. Matt Every looked effortless in his new Johnnie-O threads. If you are looking for a modern preppy look, follow Every’s lead.
