Henrik Stenson

The Swede took home the claret jug Sunday at Royal Troon like a Boss, both with his play and with his apparel. Stenson stuck to what worked best style-wise all week with strong, dark outfit coordination punctuated by athletic, engineered stripes and smart pops of bold color. Quite a blueprint set by the new Champion Golfer of the Year.

Charl Schwartzel

Schwartzel wore subtle variations of the same kit every day at Troon, and we loved it. Some of the most stylish men find a uniform and stick to their sweet spot. On or off the course, strong, simple ensembles can make more of a statement than random colorful coordination.

Blue is a universal color that looks good on almost everybody. It’s one of the reasons why we were all on board with players coordinating head-to-toe looks in 50 Shades of Blue. This is one of those simple tour trends that you can easily work into your rotation on and off the golf course.

Phil Mickelson

We’ve used tees as collar stays, pencil cases to hold golf balls and hand towels as shoe trees. The binder clip as a hat fix, however, is a new one to me. That said, function always trumps fashion. As odd as it seemed that Mickelson couldn’t find a smaller lid, Phil’s make-shirt hat fix certainly didn’t get in the way of his game. Way to keep it creative, Lefty.

There’s a bad Pharell hat joke here, but it’s not coming to me.

Henrik Stenson

Remember when Stenson had to take his shirt off before firing that dart at the flag on the 17th hole Sunday? Henrik had to make that last-minute wardrobe change because he was wearing a long-sleeve compression layer under his short-sleeve polo and was heating up down the stretch. If you’ve got ice in your veins like the Boss Man you wear what you want. For most of us, though, the less distraction the better in high-pressure situations. Do yourself a favor and wear a sweater to your next cold competitive round and take your wardrobe out of your pre-shot routine.

John Daly

Guess who? This former Open champion pulled out these pineapples Thursday at Troon.

Justin Leonard / Rory McIlroy

This is how to rock the right rain gear! For the most part, rain suits fit like garbage bags and don’t look much better, either. The best way to stay fresh in foul weather is to work a separate pair of black or navy rain pants back to your favorite waterproof pop-color piece. These guys may not have had the easiest day out in the elements, but they sure looked smart scraping it around Royal Troon last Friday.

David Feherty

The broadcaster spent some time at Royal Troon in this classic tartan Scottish kilt. Traditionally, one wears the kilt and only the kilt from the waist down but we’re not going there.

Rory McIlroy

Nike’s constantly innovating in the outerwear game. This kangaroo pocket puffer, which garnered McIlroy plenty of attention on Saturday, feels like your favorite college hoody with a cooler, techier vibe.

Miguel Angel Jimenez

I’m honestly surprised we didn’t see more tartan trousers at this year’s Open since normally many in the field pay homage to golf heritage with one patterned pant after the next. You can always count on Jimenez to bring the party, though, as he cued up these cool blue plaid pants on Saturday.

Russell Knox

On and off the course, one of the biggest style miscues I regularly see is the overuse of heavy, high-contrast black shoes with otherwise solid looking set-ups. Black shoes are best with dark, dressier outfits because of the limited level of contrast. If you’re wearing bright colors or shorts in any shade, keep your shoes on the softer, lighter side.

Wizards and Tartan Twosome

The gallery at the Open Championship never ceases to amaze.

Zach Johnson

And the award for biggest over-reaction to a mild day (for Scotland) goes to Johnson. Really? Oversize mittens, bro? We didn’t see any snow.

Kristoffer Broberg

Everyone knows that the most appropriate accessory for a mild day on the links is the snood. Enter Sweden’s Broberg. Well played, sir.

Sean Foley / Pete Cowen

No matter how cool your gear is, if it doesn’t fit, your whole look will be off. Foley is normally one of the best-dressed guys around the game, but this puffer vest is way too long and totally distorts an otherwise solid outfit. Conversely, check out Cowen to his right. Fit trumps fashion any day of the week.

Harris English

This is a super-strong look from English that features razor-sharp fit and well-balanced color. Whether your wearing blue, black or Bordeaux, your pants should just touch the top of your shoes like English’s do here.
