Ghosts of Presidents Cup Past

Ghosts of Presidents Cup Past

With the 2009 Presidents Cup in the books, I thought it would be fun to take a look back at some previous Presidents Cup events to see what the teams were wearing.

I fondly remember my heavy Ashworth shirts as I tried to emulate the style of Fred Couples in the early 1990s.

You may recognize some trends you followed back in the day, and if you do, let Chapeau Noir know what some of your favorites were - better yet, if you have a classic photo or two to share, send them along and I'll create a gallery of the best!

Little known fact: the victorious 1996 American team also recorded and released an 'a capella' CD featuring olde-timey favorites. This was the CD jacket image.


Major color blocking along with unfitted caps, straw hats, and high forehead visors remind us of how much we don't miss the early 1990s.
