Michael Kim (AG Green Label & FootJoy)
The best look of Friday goes to Michael Kim. You can’t beat a simple white polo, well-tailored trousers and a pair of custom brogues.

Vijay Singh (Carnoustie)
#FlashbackFriday. Vijay in contention after two rounds while wearing a XXL shirt and pleated slacks? Is this 2017 or 2002?

Phil Mickelson (G/FORE)
While there hasn’t been an official announcement from either side, Phil seems to be all in on G/FORE’s stylish kicks. These Tuxedo Gallivanters were a smart choice for this white and black outfit. Now if we could just get Lefty to taper those pants, he’d look like a total boss out there.

Billy Horschel (RLX Ralph Lauren)
Erratic play left BillyHo slamming his trunk on Friday evening, but not before he dropped another gem of an outfit on us. I love the subtle pattern on these Geo Print pants. The shoes aren’t bad, either.

Zac Blair (FootJoy)
What the…There has to be a backstory here that I missed. I can only guess that after rinsing three ProV1s in the water on 17, ZB was looking for some place to hide by going full snood.

Fabian Gomez (Greyson Clothiers)
Abstract prints are a strong trend on the fairways these days, and you won’t find a more stylish or intricate one than this Wolfforest pattern from Greyson. Look closely and you’ll see wolves and wolves’ teeth in the micro floral print.

Sergio Garcia (Adidas Golf)
Sergio loves those ombre prints. The question is, how many different ways can Adidas implement them?

Russell Henley (Nike Golf)
Worst use of a white belt. Ever.

Yuta Ikeda
Yuta Ikeda is becoming a GolfThreads’ favorite thanks to colorful and well-balanced looks like this one. At a time when colored bottoms are dominating the men’s fashion scene, Ikeda was one of the few players to successfully work them into his wardrobe this week.

Mackenzie Hughes (Ping Apparel)
The Rhys Polo from Ping Apparel is one of my favorites of the season. In fact, I wore it on the course last weekend. The European-inspired fit is on point, the deep sea blue color is perfect for the season, and the marled print adds a subtle and rich texture.

Jason Day (Nike Golf)
As he did at The Masters, Jason Day wore a custom version of the new Nike Air Zoom TW71 shoe. Of all the Tiger Woods shoes we have seen over the years, this is the best-looking one. The all black upper with an iridescent Swoosh synced nicely with Day’s tonal grey camo shirt and black pants.

Henrik Stenson (Hugo Boss)
Sun’s out, guns out. With summer inching closer we’ve been talking about how your golf polo should fit and there is not a better example than the one Henrik Stenson gave us on Friday. Keep your sleeves short and narrow and look for a shirt with banded cuffs for a retro look.


  1. Coming into this tournament I did not even know who Yuta Ikeda was; now he is on my short list to track for Top 10 Best Dressed golfers. What brand does he wear?

    I cannot recall ever being critical of what Billy-Ho wears. Always kills it. Do you think he picks his own scripts or does a consultant from RLX tell him what to wear? Regardless, he is a great brand ambassador for them.

    I WILL get my hands on a pair of the Gallivanters this season!

  2. Sergio and Henley look like they are wearing costumes not clothes. Way too much going on. Billy Ho’s was great yesterday and ever better today. Him and Luke Donald always look good. Phil kind of has a penguin look going on with those shoes and giant pants. Vijay was a perfect throwback to 1997. Ha. Great job with these two posts and it is always such a fun read with great insight.
