Dustin Johnson

Small, sharp details can clearly make a major impact. Two tones of bright blues combined with crisp white collar-tipping struck a simple and stylish balance on this year’s U.S. Open champion over the weekend at Oakmont.

Bubba Watson

Like everything G/Fore does, these high-top Crusaders feel like an elevated interpretation of an old-school classic. The beefy, rounded toe and perforated upper pay homage to the iconic Air Force 1, and the quilted ankle section adds a cool new edge. This is a serious set of spikes. Literally, the size and shape of these kicks are so strong that they could be a challenge to pull off if you’re a smaller footed fellow. Both swag and shoe size are required to rock these right.

Joe Buck

There are no hard-and-fast rules regarding jacket length, but Joe’s looks too short for a guy his height. Unfortunately, his tie length only exaggerates his out-of-proportion look. At least here there is a well-known guideline to follow: make sure the tip of your tie touches the top of your trouser waistband to balance out a classic tailored look.

Harris English / Brooks Koepka

Not sure I’d call this a full-fledged tour trend yet, but we’re certainly seeing a lot of teal lately. This shade feels super fresh for summer. It may be easier to pull off in a polo compared to a pair of pants, but be sure you follow these guys’ leads by syncing up whatever teal you’ve got going on with simple, solid layers.

Rory McIlroy

I’m glad to see Nike’s new Blade collar in Rory’s major rotation. However, I can’t help but feel the Blade looks a bit sloppy unbuttoned this way. This new look, fully buttoned, maintains more of its modern edge.

Mike Van Sickle

Van Sickle, a mini-tour player who grew up outside of Pittsburgh, was playing in his first U.S. Open, so naturally he wanted to show his allegiance. It’s a little bold for a rookie, but give him credit for going all in.

Paulina Gretzky and son Tatum

Tatum is a baby boss. His dad just won the U.S. Open, and this little guy looks like he’s scouring the crowd for a date to daycare.

Stripes are still going strong on the PGA Tour. From tonal rugby to multicolored engineered, we saw plenty of striped polos in all different styles.

Jeev Milkha Singh

This is a great example of a pro mistake we see replicated on public and private tracks all over the country. Black shoes paired with black belts and white pants create a ton of awkward contrast. On or off the course, remember that browns and tans work much better with lighter shades, and keep the black lace ups for darker, more formal looks.

Jordan Spieth

As nice as it is to see Jordan in something other than blue and white, this narrow stripe doesn’t really project well when the two-time major winner is getting his TV time. No matter how sharp the image, sometimes these fine stripes all blend together and distort the entire picture.

Patrick Reed

You’re not alone at this, Patrick; every week we see tour pros guilty of this fashion faux pas. Yes, those are cool pants and the white belt is fine. But combined, they create a look that doesn’t work for anyone. Creating a harsh line of separation between your upper and lower body makes you stand out in a bad way.

For any player with a big-bodied frame, wearing bright colors can be a risky proposition. High-contrast colors and coordination just doesn’t provide a clean, smooth look. The better play is a tonal combination that minimizes contrast.

Shane Lowry

Case in point: The burly Irishman stands out nicely in this all-black collection.

Gregory Bourdy

Bourdy, a Frenchman, has his white FootJoy Classics customized with a glass of what I can only assume to be Bordeaux. Well played Monsieur, well played.

J.J. Henry

Hey, JJ, 21-year-old Tiger called and he wants his belt back. When fashion editors tell you that the 1990s look is really having a moment right now, this is not what they’re talking about.

David Lingmerth

We’re still very bullish on big floral prints both on and off the course. This Hawaiian hit from Bonobos was one of our favorite finds at the PGA Merchandise Show, and we’re glad to see Lingmerth put this piece into play on one of golf’s biggest stages.

Billy Horschel

No stranger to bold bottoms, Billy Ho’s U.S. Open script dialed up both these tropical trousers as well as the pink picnic checks for Oakmont. As much as we love a turned-out spectator shoe, given all the energy Horschel had going on below the belt this week, the all-white FJ classics would have been the cleaner, cooler way to go with both of these pants.

Zach Johnson / Marc Leishman

A word from our sponsors: We’re certainly not against endorsements, but do you need to wear every single one on your corporate partners at one time? Both these guys are starting to look more like NASCAR drivers than pro golfers.
