The Dos & Don'ts On Golf Fashion

Fashion in golf has certainly changed over the years. Some of the best golfers in the world are not just experts at driving and putting, but they are also fashionistas.
Fashion in golf has certainly changed over the years. Some of the best golfers in the world are not just experts at driving and putting, but they are also fashionistas.

Unlike most sporting organizations, the PGA allows its pros to be creative through their wardrobe. This week's championship at Oak Hill is no exception.

"It's a way for me to express my personality and myself a little bit and have some fun with it," Rickie Fowler said.

Pros like Rickie Fowler and Ian Poulter are known for their distinctive fashion sense on the course. Ian put matters into his own hands.

"Seven years ago, I wasn't happy with what I was wearing so the best way to counterbalance that is put some money in and start your own business, IJP Design," Poulter said.

When it comes to picking an outfit, some pros are even superstitious.

"I always wear, on Sunday the last round, I always wear my college colors. They are red and white," Keegan Bradley said.

Other rock stars on the course do something that will feel good.

"I like to mix it up a little bit here and there and try to wear something I will feel comfortable with and at the same time I showcase my brand, which is Adidas," Sergio Garcia said.

One thing is for sure- a lot of pros say their wardrobe is all part of a well thought-out plan.

"One, because I want to look good on the golf course. Two, because it's my business and I really enjoy it and I like to feel good on the golf course with what I am wearing, and I do," Poulter said.

"It's kind of just a day to day thing. Sometimes I pick it out in the morning, sometimes the night before. This week Thursday through Sunday we worked on a script, Puma and I; about a year ago we put together some stuff and get some stuff out there that they want to see," Fowler said.

So while the players are striving for a hole-in-one on the course, you can be the judge on whether their style is a hole-in-one or just par for the course.
