Fashion recap of Day 4 at the PGA Championship
Morikawa fumbles the trophy but not his fit, Tiger throws a line to a fishing brand, JT nails another look, Brooks gets lost in the fog, and more. We put a wrap on the fashion scene from TPC Harding Park.

Collin Morikawa (Adidas Golf)
This is an easy one! Where else would I start but with the winning look from Collin Morikawa? Fit is on point. His purple collar peeking out from under the grey crewneck is classic and timeless. I love the subtle three stripes down the sleeves of this sweater. The white trousers really made this top stand out and become the centerpiece of his kit. Brilliant.
Dustin Johnson (Adidas Golf)
Whether he was wearing a sweater or a vest, DJ wore it well. My only gripe is that I wanted to see more of that novelty print polo he was wearing. Once again it is all about the fit. In fact, it’s rare that I ever see an Adidas athlete wearing ill-fitting apparel.
Tiger Woods (Nike Golf)
The red sweater was a much better choice than the base-layer/polo/vest combination we saw on Saturday. However, the real winner was the Blackout American Flag Face Shield by SA Fishing. We saw Tiger wear this same mask for part of his round Thursday. My guess is that online sales are booming for SA right now!
Justin Thomas (Ralph Lauren)
Ho-hum, another day another Dime for Justin Thomas. Accolades may be commonplace for JT but there is nothing ho-hum about this Ralph Lauren merino sweater.
Ian Poulter deserves his due. Another solid sartorial showing Sunday for Poulter.
Russell Henley (Nike)
Nike’s tie-dye and fog-inspired prints were a tough combination to pair together. Russell Henley did so masterfully by opting for the Nike Air Zoom Victory Tour (the tie-dye accents were more palatable) and a navy monochromatic kit that made a smooth transition to his lid. Way to work with what they give you, Russell!
This fog graphic polo might’ve been my least favorite polo of the entire tournament. If I were Brooks, I would have vetoed this one. He clearly had the clout to tell Nike he wasn’t wearing his signature shoe. I would’ve done the same with this shirt.
Hideki Matsuyama & Haotong Li
This pairing was brutal on the eyes. I kept thinking that they looked like a couple of Q-tips walking down the fairway.
During quarantine i had some fun doing an “ugly golf shirt of the day” on Instagram. Coincidently, that shirt Brooks wore on Sunday was my first selection! I’m kind of surprised to see that it’s still around
Thanks for the great reports this week.
Mike, do you like you would like Brooks shirt more if it was paired against a sunny warm backdrop instead of a cold, cloudy, dim San Fran with white or gray pants? For example if he wore it in sunny Hawaii, PHX or Florida would it change your opinion? I find some polos have sunny looks and others are more fall/cold weather looks. Thoughts?
I would not like them here or there.
I would not like them anywhere.
I do not like green eggs and ham.
I do not like them, Sam-I-Am.
