2013 PGA Championship apparel scripts
For your consideration, here are the apparel scripts detailing what the players will be wearing at the 2013 PGA Championship at Oak Hill in Rochester, New York. A little of this, a little of that, and a whole lot of white belts mixed in. When will it ever end?
Polo Ralph Lauren
Billy Horschel is certainly Polo's golden boy for 2013, with the octypus pants adding a bit of fun to the classic American brand.
Unfortunately, there was no weekend love for Horschel at the Open, a major disappointment for those of us who looked forward to his cardigan / tie pairing for that was slated for Sunday.
This week at the PGA Championship, a pair of camoflauge pants are on tap for Horschel. CNG took Bubba Watson to task for his camo pants a couple of years ago, so it will be interesting to see how Polo Ralph Lauren executes on this one.
Adam Scott was one off the course record on Thursday, and look pretty smashing doing so. That's right, a straight guy just said that another guy looked smashing. Besides, it's Adam-freaking-Scott I'm talking about. Amiright ladies?
Bubba made news last week when he picked up the cheque at a Chipotle. For everyone. Perhaps a planned conservative approach in Rochester will having him picking up an even larger cheque at Oak Hill.
CNG bore witness to the Fowler Effect at his home course when a pair septuagenarians entered the club house esconsed in Puma's full orange regalia. No hint of irony was detected. Curious.
Here's what US Open Champion Justin Rose will be wearing this week at Oak Hill. If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, Ashworth will be dating Travis Mathew before the summer is done.
It should come as no surprise that Nike Golf leads the way with no fewer than 13 fully scripted players. Impressive. View the associated gallery for larger images.
Love it or hate it, adidas Golf is sticking with their 2013 major championship strategy of presenting their players in matching outfits from Thursday through Sunday.
Perry Ellis International
Perry Ellis you say? Indeed. Miami-based Perry Ellis produces apparel for Ben Hogan, PGA Tour and Grand Slam, each of whom are represented in the field this week.
Alial Fital | FSquared Clothing
We love what they're doing with Bo Van Pelt at Alial Fital and FSquared. Unfortunately BVP put up a WD due to injury after round one and we won't get to see the rest of the freshest look on tour in 2013. Additional acronyms TBD.
