I might as well grab your attention and lead off with Hideki Matsuyama! Although this isn’t a Dime-worthy fit, more looks like this would at least keep Hideki out of future “Crimes”!

Adam Scott (UNIQLO & FootJoy)

Poor Adam Scott has had the fashion-yips lately but seemed to pull it together over the weekend. Much less drab! (You’ve got to start somewhere.) I was particularly intrigued by the seersucker pants Adam wore on Sunday.

Jordan Spieth (Under Armour)

My biggest gripe with Jordan Spieth is that he too often looks like a middle schooler on Picture Day. The texture on the Bauhaus Blue Under Armour Iso-Chill Polo gives a much more sophisticated appearance. Plus, monochromatic kits work best for him, especially blue. A plug for the Iso-Chill line; if you haven’t tried it, it works. I might not be smart enough to understand the science, but it quickly pulls heat away from the body and feels cool to the touch.

Viktor Hovland (J.Lindeberg & Nike)

I love the J.Lindeberg Karter Golf Polo but I didn’t love Viktor’s execution. Picture this shirt buttoned up without logos (and while I am at it, paired with white trousers). Now we are cooking, right??

Kurt Kitayama (Chervo & Nike)

BIG fan of Kitayama’s kit! The Chervo Lucky Orange Trousers with the Avenida Beach Stripe Navy Polo was a dazzling combination.

Matt Fitzpatrick (Castore & Skechers)

Castore has some really righteous geometric prints on their golf polos. This Mist Geo Polo is my favorite. I am digging the contrast between the chest pattern and plain upper; it broadens and thickens the shoulders.

Side rant: professional golfers wearing luxury European golf brands like Chervo, Castore, and J.Lindeberg need to be mindful of their footwear. Nike and Skechers detract from the look. Something like ECCO or FootJoy Premiere Series would be better options that maintain the elegance of the apparel.

Taylor Moore (B.Draddy & FootJoy)

Although not flashy, Taylor Moore is quietly one of the best dressed men in golf. His fits are always on point and he looks great without a lot of fanfare in B.Draddy’s classic styles.

Xander Schauffele (adidas Golf)

I am all in on adidas’ “Shadow Green” for Autumn. And the jacquard knit on the Go-To Seamless Polo draws you in for a closer look at the subtle modern-camo print. Phenomenally perfect pairing.

Sometimes it is the little details, like when the accent on the inside of the collar matches the trousers…..

Billy Horschel (Ralph Lauren Golf & FootJoy)

Speaking of details….did you know that Billy Horschel will not wear the same color accessories unless they all perfectly match? Well, he nailed it here. The navy hat, belt and shoes all line up. And how about those shoes? The FootJoy x Todd Snyder Tarlow was my favorite golf footwear release of the year!

  1. It’s a shame & confusing how victor makes Lindbergh & Nike look so bad! Adam Scott & hideki in the dimes, now there is a change. Thanks for the continued reviews.
