The BMW PGA Championship is the preeminent event on the European Tour, giving brands and players a grand stage for showcasing their best looks. From mod styles and micro-prints to smart shoes and perfect tailoring, we look back at the most interesting looks from the week at Wentworth.
Chris Wood (Mizuno Europe)
Mizuno Europe has some cool color blocked layering pieces in its collection this year, and eventual champion, Chris Wood, showcased them throughout the tournament. The color blocking is modern and athletic, and the brightly colored trim adds just the right amount of pop.
Simon Dyson (Bunker Mentality & FootJoy)
This mod-inspired polo that Simon Dyson wore from Bunker Mentality during the first round is one of our favorites for the season. The vertical stripes are bold and brash, but this polo also maintains a high level of class and sophistication. Plus, the extended 5-button placket feeds into the retro vibe of this shirt. Those matching spectator shoes are quite sporting, too.
Alex Noren (Hugo Boss & FootJoy)
Speaking of sick kicks, these old school brogues paired with Hugo Boss’ modern threads offered the perfect juxtaposition of styles.
Lee Slattery (Hugo Boss & FootJoy)
What’s the easiest way to add some life to a classic setup? Grab a pastel layering piece like Lee Slattery did. Not to be outdone in the shoe game, Slattery rocked these ridiculously stylish black and chrome FootJoy saddle shoes, too.
Luke Donald (RLX Ralph Lauren)
We’re not sure which is more stylish, Luke Donald’s threads or that BMW i8. One thing is for sure – that bright pink and navy combo is one of the trendy looks this season.
Tommy Fleetwood (Nike Golf)
We found Golfing Smurf and his name is Tommy Fleetwood. This is a great example of why you should stick to classic blacks and navy blues when going the monochromatic route. Bernhard Langer wore a similar getup at the Regions Tradition last week. Let’s stop this before it goes any further.
Danny Willett (Callaway Europe Apparel)
It is no secret that Willett has been one of our style favorites thanks to his clean, modern and athletic looks, and we got more of the same from the Masters Champ at the BMW PGA Championship. Forget the highlighter hues and crazy patterns, Willett proves why less is more these days.
Soomin Lee (Le Coq Sportif)
The award for best sweater goes to Soomin Lee for this green micro-dot number. We’ve seen these micro-patterns on pants, shirts and now they are making for a fresh look on knitwear. If you are looking to stand out when there is a chill in the air, cue up a sweater with a small scale pattern.
Rikard Karlberg (J.Lindeberg)
Again, we aren’t big fans of a polo over a compression layer, but if you are going to do it, take a lesson from Rikard Karlberg. Sync up the colors and keep the fit slim to smooth out the entire look.
Y.E. Yang (Adidas Golf)
Over the years, Y.E. Yang has teed it up in some over-caffeinated colors and aggressive patterns, but these were some of the cleanest looks we have seen from him. And, where did he get those Adidas polos? They were unlike any we’ve seen here in the U.S. The button-down collars and subtle details provided a sharp and sophisticated look.
Rafa Cabrera-Bello (Oakley)
RCB is quickly becoming a favorite around here, and it has everything to do with the razor-sharp fit of his clothing. The sleeves are narrow and the perfect length and his pants just sweep the tops of his shoes. If you are looking to nail the fit of your golf apparel, bring a picture of this guy to your tailor.
Robert Rock (Wolsey)
Robert Rock found himself on our 2012 Best Dressed List, and he is making a strong bid to return again in 2016 with ultra-modern looks like this one. What you don’t see in this picture is the subtle jacquard stripes, which add another layer of interest to this polo.
