Wyndham’s wyn-ning look, Rickie’s Love/H8, Nike’s teal, FJ celebrates a century in style, and more. Michael and Greg team up for the rare twosome version of Fashion Dimes & Crimes to break down the best and worst fits from the weekend at LACC.

Fashion Dimes

Wyndham Clark (Municipal & FootJoy)

The look of a champion! Sometimes you just get a vibe about a player on a championship Sunday and Wyndham Clark’s cool blues gave off an air of calmness as he strode to the first tee. From the opening tee shot to the final green, he felt in control. (Well, except for maybe a few holes where he had both hands on the steering wheel down the stretch.) Clark outplayed the field and was the best player over the course of the week. What a win for him, and what incredible exposure for the up-and-coming sport utility apparel brand Municipal, co-founded by Mark Wahlberg and Harry Arnett. If you are looking for a polo that has a fashion edge for the course and beyond, the Johnny collar on this one will set you apart from the rest of your playing partners. (Unfortunately, it isn’t available on the Municipal website.)

While Clark may not be a household name to casual golf fans, he’s been on our fashion radar for a while. Before lifting the U.S. Open Trophy and capturing the Wells Fargo Championship, he won his first Threadie as one of our best dressed players of 2022. We’d like to think that kicked off his victory run. Lol!

Rory McIlroy (Nike)

Truth be told, I had a similar vibe about Rory on Sunday, so my Spidey senses are as good as a coin flip. The black pants brought a very business-like approach to the final round while allowing the aqua polo to take the center of the Hollywood stage.

Cameron Young (Peter Millar & FootJoy)

I was bummed FootJoy’s Centennial Collection of apparel and footwear didn’t get more camera time. Yeah, I know Cameron Smith made a late run on Sunday while wearing the limited-edition Premiere Series Wilcox shoes, but it was the other Cam who wore them better. The simple navy and grey fit put the spotlight squarely on the latest sick kicks from FJ. Let’s hope Open Championship week gives FootJoy another reason to release a limited edition shoe. Fingers crossed.

Dustin Johnson (Extracurricular & FootJoy)

Except for Saturday, DJ tripled down on these simple, yet stylish white and navy looks from Extracurricular. It’s the details, like the piping on the sleeves and the placket that make this a Dime. Extracurricular is looking like my break-out brand for the year. Get on the bandwagon now. I’ve saved you a seat.

Gordon Sargent (FootJoy)

If Gordon Sargent is playing golf, I want to watch it. This guy gives off some serious JT vibes. He’s not a big dude, but he can absolutely hit the Full Send button on command. He’s also another one of the young guns leaning into the more classic looks in a modern way. Sure, there’s nothing flashy here, but the tailoring of the shirt and trousers is on point and the subtle coordination of all the pieces elevate the entire fit.

Collin Morikawa (Adidas Golf)

Mixing and matching blues is Morikawa’s specialty and the subtle print added just the right amount of texture. I wish he would have worn some fits from the Bogey Boys x Adidas Golf collab during the competition days, but at least he gave us a taste during a practice round.

Rickie Fowler (Puma Golf)

This Puma Love/H8 Polo was perfect for Rickie’s journey of late. It reminded me of the Bob Marley tune, One Love. It is a song about unity and bringing everyone together. That was Rickie this tournament, eh? Was there anyone who wasn’t rooting for Rickie?? As always, he handled himself with grace, class, and dignity.

Fashion Nickels

Tony Finau (Nike)

This is a special section for those who almost nailed but ended up hammering part of their thumbs in the process. The teal pants were absolute winners for Nike throughout the tournament and the navy micro print polo synced perfectly. I just don’t understand the black and pink Jordan 1 Lows. Sometimes a simple white is the better option. Or, why not a custom paint job?

Tommy Fleetwood (Nike)

Another way to wear those teal pants…but that hat. Ooff!

Fashion Crimes

Si Woo Kim

Si Woo took some incoming fire from Keith Mitchell on Saturday. I can only think Cashmere Keith was trying to take out that polo with a direct hit and Si Woo was just collateral damage.

Ben Carr

Holy long trousers, Batman. The inseam on these slacks looks like they were meant for one of the Lakers’ big men, not Ben Carr!
