A few days ago we started a series of posts in honor of NY Fashion Week that gives tribute to all the best dressed athletes. We’ve talked about the most fashionable NBA ballers, the stylish NFL players and the haute couture hotties of the MLB. And now it’s time to hit the most fashionable sport of all: golf!
For all the other best dressed posts, we were giving you pictures of players off their courts or field in their everyday clothes. But since the game of golf is known for it’s on the course fashion, we are bending the rules and showing you how these players use the green course as a red carpet of fashion!
The Best Dressed PGA Golfers:
- Ian Poulter
- Ryo Ishikawa
- Camilo Villegas
- Adam Scott
- Zack Johnson
- Davis Love III
- Greg Norman
- and…. two bonus golfers….. you have to scroll to find out!
When Ian first stepped out on the green, he stunned the golfing world. No, he didn’t Roar like Tiger….but his clothes sure did! Ian is known for his outrageous golf attire, from his pink pants and his trademark British flag pants to his golf lamé golf shirt. Yes, you read that right. A Gold lamé golf shirt! There really aren’t any words to fully describe how glamorific Mr Poulter is, so I’ll just let the pictures do the talking. As you can see, he practically exudes fantasticism in every outfit.
Ah Camilo….. Ever since Tiger stepped on the green, golf has started to really appeal to the younger crowds. But Camilo has truly taken this game of old men and plaid pants and made it young, fresh, modern, hip and damn sexy! He even somehow manages to do naughty things to argyle sweaters!
Known to his adoring fans as Hanikami Ōji” (translated “Bashful Prince”), Ryo is anything but bashful when it comes to his golfing fashion! It’s Tokyo Street Fashion meets a Golfer’s Closet mixed with an 80s color palatte. Sound disturbing? It would be if Ryo didn’t pull it off so well! Just check out the green and orange look below! Anyone that can dress like rainbow sherbet but actually make it work, is definitely a style star.
Oh and have you seen his golf bag? It’s hot pink and white and he carries a little Ryo doll on it! Talk about fabulous!
Adam has elevated golf fashion to a whole new level. Forget Nike. Forget Polo. Adam rocks straight up Burberry on the green. Remember how I said Camilo makes argyle look fine? Well, Adam does it even better because it’s very, very expensive argyle and it’s paired with perfectly custom fitted pants. Off the field he usually adds a unique hat as well!
Oh and I broke the rules a little, I did throw in some off the green shots. I couldn’t help myself.
Zack is making this list because I found about 10 shots of him wearing bright orange…. and wearing it well. And anyone that wear creamsicle orange and pull it off deserves a place on a best styled list.
Davis Love III
I’ve been a fan of Davis Love III for years. Mostly because I think his name is freaking awesome. You hear it, you think, “yup, upitty golfer type”
He’s also one of the throwbacks to the traditional days of golf fashion. Ralph Lauren loves him and makes sure is decked out in Polo Golf Pastels for every event. Forget the big bold pops of colors. Davis dons the light pinks and seafoam greens with khakis!
Greg revolutionized golf fashion when he hit the PGA tour. Just check out his clothing line! He was always my mom’s favorite golfer because his fashion sense was impeccable and his custom designed hats with the Greg Norman fish were always the perfect complementing accessory!
Bonus Style Star #1: Payne Stewart
You can’t have a golf fashion best dressed list without mentioning the late Payne Stewart. He took golf waaaaaay back to the days of Scotland with knickers and high socks, and of course, the fabulous hat that Kangol made famous! Wikipedia says “He was always popular with fans, especially for his clothing, and was reputed to have the biggest wardrobe of all professional golfers.”
Bonus Style Star #2: Justin Timberlake
No, Justin’s not on the Tour just yet. But JT did get voted as the best dressed golfer for 2009 so we couldn’t not put him on this list now could we? He definitely brings sexy back to the game of golf!
