Not often is the winner of a PGA Tour event also the most fashionable player in the field, but such was the case when Billy Horschel captured the AT&T Byron Nelson on Sunday. It is no secret that Horschel is a sartorial favorite here at GolfThreads. Since arriving on Tour, Billy has taken up residence on nearly every one of our best dressed lists. He even garnered the top spot in our top 10 list from 2016.
Looking as fashionable on the course as Horschel does is easier than you may think. From the well-balanced use of colors to the on-point accessories, here is how you can copy his winning looks from the weekend at TPC Four Seasons.
One of the keys to Billy Horschel’s style success over the years has been his strategy of ‘one loud thing.’ For the final round, this one loud thing was the RLX Cypress Pant in a color Ralph Lauren calls Coral Glow.
This vibrant color sits between pink and orange. It brings a positive energy to the course and easily pairs with navy blue, white, grey, or black. Horschel went with black in the form of the classic looking RLX Airflow Polo. By selecting a solid neutral, he allowed the focus to fall squarely on the coral pants. If your climate isn’t conducive to wearing pants this summer, Ralph Lauren also offers Cypress Shorts in Coral Glow.
Another key to Billy’s success has been choosing the right belts. The black webbed RLX belt again proved to be the smart choice. It synced perfectly with the shirt and created an easy transition from top to bottom. How many other Tour players would have ruined this outfit with a white belt?
When in doubt, wear blue. It looks good on everyone. Horschel sported colorful dual-tone blue stripes with the RLX Tech Pique Stripe Pro Fit Polo as he made a charge up the leaderboard on Saturday. This stylish polo brought a mix of classic and modern details to his look. The tipping on the collar and four-button placket offered a vintage vibe, while the wide stripes and tailored fit were distinctly modern. The pique fabric was perfect for the hot and humid conditions, too. Not only does this material wick moisture, but the loose weave also allows for better air circulation and breathability.
The striped blue shirt combined with the white Cypress Pants created a crisp and clean look that is perfect for warm weather months. Again, the Cypress Shorts are a cool replacement (in more ways than one) for the pants.
As fresh as Horschel’s apparel was, the best parts of Horschel’s Saturday kit were the brown belt and brown and white FootJoy Shield Tip Shoes. Brown has become a forgotten color in the golf fashion world, but it is no coincidence that two of the most stylish players, Billy Horschel and Justin Thomas, find ways to work the color into their accessories and footwear.
I loved Billy Ho’s look on Saturday. Very classic and something we don’t see too often on the PGA tour. He took a page from dad’s closet but made it look fresh and on point. One other observation; he wears his hats well! Go Billy!!
Golfthreads is knocking it out lately. Billy Ho was a perfectly timed writeup. He has been nailing his apparel for a while now and it needed to be called out. Fantastic job here and Billy is one to emulate on the course.
