Our first edition of Masters Fashion Dimes & Crimes will drop tomorrow. In the meantime, here’s an appetizer to set the stage for the next four days. Tour Editor Michael Ruuska looks at the freshest looks and biggest sartorial stories from The Masters Par-3 Contest.

Nike Magnolia Print
Nike stole the show at the Masters Par 3 Contest. I couldn’t get enough of the Magnolia Floral Prints and subtle magenta accents and details on their apparel. It complemented the landscape of Augusta perfectly.
Tommy Fleetwood (Nike)
Tommy Fleetwood wore the Nike Magnolia Print Roshe (these sold out on Nike.com in just 52 minutes on Wednesday) and the Nike AeroBill Classic99 hat. Just an awesome look!
Rickie Fowler (Puma Golf)
Here’s the coolest couple in golf. Rickie Fowler wears stuff I would mock on anyone else. However, when I see him wear it, I want to run out and buy it! Don’t even get me started on Allison Stokke. It’s good to be Rickie.
Bubba Watson (Oakley & G/FORE)
Bubba continues to impress with his shoes!! He masterfully played tribute to the flora of Georgia by stepping out in a righteous pair of G/FORE kicks with an azalea motif crafted by Nomad Customs. Bravo, Bubba.
Dustin Johnson (Adidas Golf)
Obviously, Dustin Johnson stays up on the latest style trends (or maybe Paulina keeps him informed). As we learned at the PGA Show, prints are in. DJ mixed it up a bit and looked great in the Adidas Dot-Print Polo Shirt.
Jordan Spieth (Under Armour)
Jordan Spieth also used the Par 3 Contest to give us a slightly different look by topping his dome with an Under Armour lid that isn’t his usual hat du jour.
Rafa Cabrera-Bello (FootJoy)
Rafael Cabrera-Bello may be the only guy who gets a free pass for wearing a white belt. He has an uncanny ability to make it look good. Go figure! Rafael also may be the only guy to rival Dustin Johnson’s swagger. There is just something cool about the Spaniard. I am a big fan of the FootJoy apparel I’ve seen on tour this year, especially the Stretch Pique Paisley Print Self Collar Polo Mr. Cabrera-Bello wore on Wednesday.
Danny Willett (Descente)
Descente polo shirts just look fun. The fit, style, and design of Descente polos always make me feel like their shirts can cast an illusion of broader shoulders and narrower waist. Every time I see Danny Willett, I think to myself, ‘I need to get a Descente shirt’. I guess their sponsorship of the former Masters champ is working….
I am a die-hard fan of the Boston professional sports scene and the Red Sox have always been my most beloved team. Seeing Hideki Matsuyama in this pinstriped polo made me cringe. All I could think of are those damn New York Yankees. Ugh.
