I can’t remember a more mediocre day for golf fashion at the Masters in recent memory. This used to be the showcase of golf style. But hey, it’s 2020 and it was Friday the 13th.
Nonetheless, a few lads showed up and showed out. JT continued to cruise in Ralph Lauren blues, Sneds showed us how modern takes on classic fits are done, Rickie was perfectly balanced, and Max Homa was dialed in. We also have the latest on Justin Rose’s shoe addiction. Also, many thanks to the likes of Sandy Lyle and Hideki Matsuyama for continuing to make everyone else look good.

Justin Thomas (Ralph Lauren)
Blue is said to be a cool and calming color. JT is certainly channeling those chill vibes so far this week. I’m getting the feeling that this is his Green Jacket to lose at this point. He also seems to be cruising to the best-dressed award for the week with little competition.
Justin Rose (Bonobos)
Classic stripes in a traditional navy blue. What’s most impressive about Justin Rose is his multi-year quest to try every golf shoe on the market. I hear ya, J-Ro. I have the same goal! I’m just wondering if his wife is as upset as my wife about the number of kicks cascading off the shelves in the garage.
Proving that you can go home again, Rose has been on an Adidas bender recently. Having first laced up the new TOUR360 XT-SL 2.0 for a while, his latest shoe of choice is the three-stripes brand’s CodeChaos.
Andy Ogletree (Peter Millar)
I’m always interested to see how amateurs roll out for the majors. Most just default to their templated college unis, but Andy Ogletree has leveled up in Peter Millar’s fashionable threads. One of the keys to being a well-dressed guy is to find brands that fit your personal style. Andy Ogletree and Peter Millar are a match made in golf style heaven.
Victor Perez (Greyson Clothiers)
Simple and sophisticated. Plus, I’m digging the special Laurel Wolf logo. Not only is Victor on-point in his new Greyson threads this week, but he is also doing good for humanity while looking good. He is donating $1000 for every birdie and $5000 for every eagle he makes in his “GainsForGood” initiative. This aims to assist the greater-Augusta community, which is facing a significant economic burden caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Additionally, Greyson is directly donating a portion of the proceeds from polos with the Laurel Wolf logo to the initiative.
Brandt Snedeker (Peter Millar)
Abraham Ancer (Black Quail Apparel)
Rickie Fowler (Puma Golf)
Every good Masters script needs to include some green. Love the balance in Rickie’s kit. He also proved that you can wear white shoes with black pants.
Max Homa (FootJoy)
FootJoy has leveled up its fashion offerings lately. The one piece that was missing was a young dude that could really showcase its threads. FJ now has that with Homa.
Big, bold, colorful print in fall hues. This is what I want to see at the Masters.
If you’re a member of Augusta, you should flex every opportunity you get.
Remember when suspenders were cool? Neither do I. In all seriousness, thanks to Sandy Lyle for the comic relief. 2020 has been a long, strange trip. Seeing the Scot tee it up in braces is just the chuckle I needed. I’m disappointed he missed the cut.
My brother-in-law messaged me the other day to ask whether Louis shops at Goodwill stores from 1987. I’m still not sure whether the answer is yes or no.
At this point, I’m assuming Hideki is sticking with the referee collection all week. I have plenty of fashion red cards at my disposal and I’m not afraid to use them.
I would say someone should take the white belt away from Sungjae Im, but I’m guessing he travels with an entire suitcase of backups. Maybe someone should just take his suitcase away from him.
If Waldo was a UPS driver. What brown can do for you…
