U.S. OPEN 2014 STYLE WINNERS
Golfers displayed a great deal of sartorial patriotism at Pinehurst. Apparel sponsors provided players with a wide array of red, white and blue styles. The U.S. Open also brought out a new range of patterned pieces paired with vibrant accessories. A Glam Slam recapped the best fairway fashions from the 2014 U.S. Open.
Rickie Fowler: Fowler paid tribute to his favorite player, the late Payne Stewart, with his U.S. Open first round fashion statement. Stewart was well-known for his signature on-course style. This year marked the 15th Anniversary of Stewart’s U.S. Open win in 1999. In his honor, Fowler donned a retro ensemble, pairing a light blue polo with knickers and argyle socks.
Keegan Bradley: Bradley was perfectly patriotic is his Tommy Hilfiger threads. His white polo featured a red and navy stripe design across the shoulder, and continued down the back of the shirt. Keegan’s buzzed about red Jordan golf shoes added flair.
Martin Kaymer: The U.S Open champ hit the course in winning style throughout the tournament. He wore a range of fashion-forward Hugo Boss pieces, but in a sea of color, this black and gray outfit stood out as being sharp and chic.
Chris Kirk: Kirk was styled in red, white and blue looks, thanks to Travis Mathew. The gray stripe and the gray belt on the ensemble below, were a welcome addition to the color scheme.
Rory McIlroy: McIlroy’s Nike outfit featured an unexpected pairing of gray and bright pink hues. This color way provided some excitement for him, with a look that was fun and fresh.
Brandt Snedeker: Snedeker’s Peter Millar plaid pants were edgy and bold, but a solid white polo balanced them out nicely.
Billy Horschel: Ralph Lauren’s RLX provides Horschel with a classic and clean aesthetic. The white pants and striped polo showcased a simple yet strong style statement.
Ian Poulter: Poulter’s style is often marked by his tartan trousers. This time around, his solid navy bottoms were simple, but his polo was striking, with collar and cuffs in contrast colors. The apparel came from Poulter’s own line, IJP Design.
Graeme McDowell: Like Poulter, McDowell dons designs from his collection, G-Mac by Kartel. The two-tone, patterned pink shirt and dark trousers, provided a crisp and polished appearance.
Dustin Johnson: The color treatement changed, but the designs remained the same in Johnson’s U.S. Open wardrobe from adidas. This vivid, blue on blue color way suited him well.
Webb Simpson: Simpson stepped out in a unique display of patriotism. The striped shirt from IZOD really popped against the white pants.
Jamie Donaldson: Donaldson’s J. Lindeberg wardrobe was solid. Pieces were not only well-fitted to his frame, but the designs were on-point. Among the standouts was this handsomely striped shirt.
