Fashion Dimes

Steve Stricker (Bobby Jones)

The stripes and color of this Bobby Jones polo make for a very eye-catching and youthful looking shirt. Worn with a pair of five-pocket pants, Steve Stricker is appropriately keeping up with the younger guys on tour.

Luis Gagne (Callaway)

If Steve Stricker is looking like a young buck these days, Amateur Luis Gagne pulled a veteran move by breaking out a vintage looking Callaway rope hat. Rope hats have had a strong presence on tour lately and Gagne looks seasoned in this lid.

Justin Thomas (Polo Ralph Lauren)

We have given Justin Thomas plenty of fashion praise this tournament and rightfully so. No one fits the style of Southampton better than Thomas. He killed it again on Saturday!

Brooks Koepka (Nike)

This Nike Zonal Cooling polo in Rush Coral/Team Orange is a great color for Brooks Koepka. Paired with the Tour Premiere shoes and AeroBill Classic99 hat (with their Rush Coral accents), and you have one of my favorite kits of the day. Brooks really stood out on the course.

Rafa Cabrera-Bello (FootJoy)

Speaking of standing out, holy cow! No one does it better and with as much grace as Rafa Cabrera-Bello! Again, it is all in the detailing for Rafa. He will be getting votes from me for the year-end GT Threadies. White belts and all….

Henrik Stenson (Hugo Boss)

Herr Stenson will undoubtedly be joining Señor Cabrera-Bello on the best-dressed list. We have seen quite a bit of patriotic apparel choices at the U.S. Open. Ironically, it was a Swede who did it best on Saturday. Given that Shinnecock Hills is so close to the hometown of Bruce Springsteen, I give Henrik Stenson the illustrious “Boss–Born In the U.S.A.” fashion award for this outfit.


Fashion Crimes

Scott Piercy & Marc Leishman

As distinguished and coveted as Stenson’s award is, sadly, the equally unprestigious “Hulkamania–Real American” fashion award goes to Scott Piercy and Marc Leishman. Piercy’s shirt was too gimmicky (a better alternative would be the Vineyard Vines shirt Trey Mullinax wore Thursday). Clearly, Leishman needs to read my article, “The Great (Polo) Switcheroo” from last month to brush up on the do’s and don’ts of wearing horizontal stripes.

Sorry Ross, but you look like you should be waiting tables on Cape Cod. The fit of those pants is horrible.

Beef Johnson & Phil Mickelson

Oh, my. Run, don’t walk from these two hirsute characters….

Jim Furyk

As youthful as Steve Stricker looked in Dimes, it seemed fitting to finish with Jim Furyk in Crimes. Furyk has never been overly concerned with fashion, but this is bad even by his standards. I guess since it is Father’s Day weekend I will give him a pass for looking like a “dad”. Happy Father’s Day!

  1. I honestly think Furyk cares more about how many sponsor logos are on his shirts than the shirts he is wearing. Wow, you caught it, Stricker looked so solid. One of my favorite things that only certain folks like Rafa can pull off is the hat in a slightly different shade than a shirt. It looks so sharp on him.
