Floral prints, spiders, tacos, and European sports cars. Tour Editor Michael Ruuska breaks down the fashion scene from the Memorial Tournament.
Bryson A. DeChambeau (Puma)
Let’s start with the Memorial champion. Bryson DeChambeau doesn’t do much to move the golf fashion needle, but he earned style points on Thursday flaunting a sharp micro floral-inspired print. Like Bryson, the Puma Botanic Golf Polo is also a winner!
Whee Kim (Descente)
As much as I like the Puma polo, it was not my favorite shirt at the Memorial. Whee Kim stole the show with this Descente polo. In fact, all of his tops were top notch. There’s Something About Mary, I mean Descente; their apparel is always flashy and fun. Reminds me of a European sports car.
Luke List (TravisMathew)
What would you see if you took a European sports car on a road trip to Baja, California? Dancing cacti, sombreros, tacos, and whistles. Also known as the TravisMathew K-Maze polo. Trust me, this party shirt needs to find a home in your closet. ¡Olé!
Bubba Watson (Oakley)
Oakley used the Memorial to introduce its Limited Edition Bubba Watson Capsule Collection. Created for athletes that want to be great and dare to be different, the unique collection is equipped with technical features that are built for performance. Sans buttons, instead these polos come with a clasp locker (zipper) that when zipped up says “BUBBA WATSON”. Somewhere Whitcomb L. Judson (inventor of the zipper) is smiling…..
Short Par 4 (Tour Experience)
If you are the type of guy who would wear Bubba Watson’s name like a placard on your zipper, you might want to look into the Short Par 4 Tour Experience. These are one of a kind, exclusive boxes curated by either Rickie Fowler ($125) or Wesley Bryan ($99) and were released for the first time in May. The boxes come with their Tour outfits, complete with sponsor logos. My understanding is the Puma Pounce Stripe Golf Polo that Rickie wore on Friday, was one of the items included in the inaugural Rickie Fowler box. No word yet on when Wesley’s Taco Bell belt will go out, but stay tuned…..
Phil Mickelson (Mizzen+Main)
Let’s just say I am all for Phil rocking the button-up shirts. Personally, I own a few performance button-fronts (specifically Puma, Johnnie-O, and Ralph Lauren) that I really like for a quick nine after work. However, there is definitely the potential for a possible wardrobe malfunction; as seen in this picture. At least Phil had the foresight to wear a white undershirt.
Adam Scott (Uniqlo)
I really like the Uniqlo shirts that Adam Scott has worn this year. However, I think that he missed the mark on his pant and shirt combination on Sunday. Adam, you are better than this…
Jason Dufner (Columbus) & Dustin Johnson (Taylor Made Spider)
Red and green are tough colors to pair together. Fortunately, these guys were not in the same grouping. With that being said, I dig the pop of color DJ’s hat provides, and be on the lookout for an upcoming post chronicling Duf’s hat game this season!
