JT’s wolves in the desert, Rory’s alien abduction, Jordans on Bubba, and cocktails to the Max. Tour Editor Michael Ruuska takes us from Dr. Seuss’ Mulberry Street to the moon and back in style.

Justin Thomas (Greyson Clothiers & FootJoy)
It only seems fitting to start with Justin Thomas. Although there is nothing official, JT continues to wear Greyson Clothiers. These Montauk Trousers in Mulberry got me thinking of the first book by Dr. Seuss, And To Think I Saw It On Mulberry Street.
Rory McIlroy (Nike Golf)
Rory’s Nike Golf Polo honors the fiftieth anniversary of golf as the only sport ever played on the Moon. And GolfThreads honors this playful polo with the first-ever “Dr. Seuss Award” for the captivating and engaging story it tells…
On February 6, 1971, Alan Shepard hit the most widely watched golf shot in history when he hit a 6-iron from a bad lie ON THE MOON. He actually hit two balls, the first he clearly duffed (sigh–I can relate) and the second one he claims traveled “miles and miles and miles.” Apparently, Shepard had a bit of a mischievous side to him and like our friend, Dr. Seuss, loved to tell a good yarn. A British imaging specialist, Andy Saunders, recently determined that the golf ball Shepard hit on the Apollo 14 mission traveled only 40 yards. Curious how far Rory McIlroy could theoretically hit a ball on the moon? 3.41 miles, according to Saunders. This would give new meaning to the USGA and R&A “Distance Insight Project.”
And that is a story that no one can beat

Bubba Watson (Linksoul & Jordan Brand)
In other news, Bubba Watson began wearing Linksoul at the Farmers Insurance Open. However, it was the shoes that got social media all abuzz. Everyone up and down Mulberry Street has been speculating when the OG Air Jordan IV “White Cement” Golf would be released. We will be sure to let you know when we hear something definitive from Nike.
Matt Wallace (J.Lindeberg & FootJoy)
I am pretty sure that in the sequel to The Cat in the Hat, appropriately named, The Cat in the Hat Comes Back, the title character leaves a pink stain in the family bathtub. The aforementioned pink stain spreads like wildfire throughout the house. That pink was problematic. These pink J.Lindeberg Ellott pants are good. Very, very good.
Danny Willett (Descente & Nike)
On Beyond Zebra was Seuss’ boundary-pushing take on an alphabet book (adding twenty additional letters beyond “Z”). This Descente polo is pushing the boundaries of the golf polo. Plus, it reminds me of a zebra.
There’s no limit to how much you’ll know, depending how far beyond zebra you go.Dr. Seuss–On Beyond Zebra
Ian Poulter (bespoke & FootJoy)
If we hear Ian Poulter exclaim, “There’s a Wocket In My Pocket,” you can bet that his nemesis, prankster-Henrik Stenson, had something to do with it. I’d wear these trousers even with a Wocket in the pocket. Wait a minute…do I spy a Hartan on the tartan?
Rickie Fowler (Puma Golf)
Puma released the First Mile Collection in honor of the WMPO’s focus on sustainability. The First Mile capsule consists of apparel made from recycled yarn manufactured from plastic bottles. However, Puma x First Mile isn’t just about turning plastic into product. This is a collection rooted in cooperative opportunity and human connection—one that threads people together around a decision to do better. May I recommend wearing the Puma First Mile Flash Polo while reading The Lorax? Please.

Doc Redman (Ralph Lauren Golf & Ecco)
With all my Dr. Seuss references, how could I not include Doc Redman?! I tend to have my “Hunches in Bunches.” I have a hunch that ECCO will sell bunches of these BIOM H4 when they are released in March.
Kevin Streelman (johnnie-O & FootJoy)
The iconic johnnie-O surfer dude dominates this polo despite his diminutive size. The Exeter Print johnnie-O Birdie PREP-FORMANCE Jersey Polo could be my go-to summer polo.

Alexander Bjork (Galvin Green & FootJoy)
Galvin Green is the best. You can wear it “From there to here, from here to there, funny things are everywhere!” (One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish). Funny thing is I don’t know what full-zip sweater this is. And I know my Galvin Green!
Max Homa (FootJoy)
When he worked, he really worked. But when he played, he really PLAYED.Dr. Seuss–The King’s Stilts
If this sums you up, you may want to consider the FootJoy Lisle Cocktail Print Polo. Something tells me this might be a good description of how Max Homa lives. Hmmm.
Some sharp looking lads today.
As the Good Doctor said, “You’ll miss the best things if you keep your eyes shut.” Never guilty of that on this blog (although it will take an hour or so for my eyes to adjust back to normal after seeing the zebra shirt).
Thanks, Larry. That zebra shirt may throw off your opponent’s depth perception while putting, though.:)
I have pants for that. better vision angle.
Ruuska, have you seen the belts Carlos Ortiz is wearing?
I have. So sharp! Not sure who makes them. I haven’t known Greyson to do belts….
Ortiz’s belts are by Royal Albartross. A lot of the Greyson guys are wearing the RA belts. High quality and look well with the Greyson threads. – Greg
