Sulman Raza (Greyson & Jones)
Favorite look of the day goes to Sulman Raza in this dual-tone blue kit from Greyson and Jones. When mixing and matching blues, follow Raza’s lead. Make sure you have enough contrast between top and bottom and match your belt to either your pants or shirt for a smooth transition. Of course, nailing the fit and wearing a pair of trousers with a trendy all-over print doesn’t hurt, either.
Justin Thomas (Polo Ralph Lauren)
“Can’t repeat the past? Why of course you can!” – Jay Gatsby, The Great Gatsby
Our Tour Editor Michael Ruuska once said that if you find yourself invited to a Great Gatsby Party and are unsure what to wear, just copy Justin Thomas. Well, It was another Gatsby-esque outfit for JT on Friday—fitting for a summer weekend in the Hamptons. Don’t you think, old sport? I just wonder if JT gets bored looking so sharp round after round. He makes it look effortless.
Jason Dufner (FootJoy)
Duf may sit T-15 after 36 holes, but he’s winning the headwear game as he continues to rock throwback lids from FootJoy. Yesterday was a vintage high crown visor; today a retro trucker. We can’t wait to see how you cover your dome tomorrow, Duf.
Paul Casey & Tommy Fleetwood (Nike)
Speaking of hats, Nike is making noise with a mix of old-school and new-school styles. Fleetwood’s rope hat probably had Lee Trevino smiling somewhere. On the other hand, Casey took a more modern approach. The tech hat with a “Just Do It” all-over print is part of Nike’s JDI Pack released for the U.S. Open.
Rickie Fowler & Bryson DeChambeau (Puma Golf)
Puma has established itself as the King of Collabs in the golf footwear world. The brand once again teamed up with sneaker designer/artist Nomad Customs on these sick personal edition U.S. Open-themed kicks for Rickie and Bryson. You’ll remember Nomad Customs created those bespoke Arnold Palmer tribute shoes that Rickie wore at the API.
Dustin Johnson (Adidas Golf)
No doubt Dustin Johnson is locked in right now and it all started when he laced up Adidas’ TOUR360 Knit shoes for the first round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic last week. Since then, he has fired rounds of 67-63-65-66 to win in Memphis by six and leads at Shinnecock by four after being the only player to shoot two rounds in the 60s. If you are looking for a great summer shoe, check out the TOUR360 Knit. The Primeknit upper is breathable and waterproof. Plus, it has all of the performance and comfort features of the leather TOUR360 Boost.
Trey Mullinax (Vineyard Vines)
Trey Mullinax continues to grab our attention with modern takes on preppy designs. Pink and navy is always a winning combination and the canvas belt completed the look to perfection.
Zach Johnson (Kjus)
Zach has improved his style since moving to Kjus earlier this year. The brand’s classic looks and high-tech fabrics are a great fit for Zach’s personal style and work better with his saddle shoes than those Oakley threads of the past.
Alex Noren (Nike)
We talked yesterday about players using orange accents to add life to their outfits and Alex Noren gave us another example of this on Friday. The hint of orange up top synced nicely with the hits of orange on the shoes.
Rory McIlroy, Sergio Garcia, Jon Rahm
Blending in and not standing out. We continue to see players combining light neutrals resulting in washed out looks that blend in against the backdrop of Shinnecock’s fescue.
New apparel this year for Patrick but the same issues. Ill-fitting pants gather around his shoes and he is constantly hitching up the sleeves on his oversized polos.
A great kit ruined with a white belt. Say it isn’t so, Rickie? That’s okay; we’re still pulling for you.
