U.S. Open Style Review
Our Mr. Style weighs in on the fashion hits and misses at the 2014 U.S. Open

It was extremely smart of BOSS Green to dress Kaymer in the same color-block shirt pattern all four days. Giving him an instantly recognizable pattern was a great idea for branding; especially when that brand is cruising to an eight-stroke victory. We love the use of the darker color under the arm and the contrasting placket is right on trend. They both allow for the primary color to pop, usually matching the athletic look of his adidas Gripmores, while his trousers play the supporting role. Even his white belts are worn to perfection -- whether disappearing into his pants as on Thursday, or adding length to his white Sunday shirt. Among all of these bright spots, Kaymer's greatest style asset is his physique. When you're in such great shape, it doesn't take much to look this good.BOSS Greenadidas GolfBOSS Greenadidas Golf
Mark him down for a 59 from a style standpoint. Not only did Fowler play brilliantly all week, but this nod to Payne Stewart shows he certainly did his homework. He was even smart enough to utilize some Carolina blue.PUMA Golf
Rory might have been overlooked this week, but this pink shirt and belt combo is how we want to see him dressed. The lively pallet and good contrast makes him look athletic and in shape. We certainly hope someone at Nike is taking notes.Nike Golf
While the white belt doesn't sit well with us, we're pleased to see Jordan infusing some color into his selections this week. It's nice to see him showing a bit of zip and the fit is getting closer to what it should be. I, for one, can't wait for those UnderArmour golf shoes to hit the market (still in development for the general public).UnderArmour Men's Golf
There's a reason Hugo BOSS is one of the dominant fashion brands on a global scale, and this photograph should be Exhibit A in the evidence file. Color-blocked, good contrast, great fit. That's a check mark from top to bottom. Well done.Hugo BOSS
This is interesting, because those of us who are in tune to tour style instantly look at what Keegan has on his feet. Those Air Jordans are certainly unique, and I bet Nike is looking forward to getting them in stores. Oh, and by the way, the graphic design of that Hilfiger outfit is spot on.Nike GolfTommy Hilfiger Men's Golf
High marks to Azuma for a fun shirt with a fun logo. Taking a cue from Gonzalo Fernández-Castaño, you can't see it here, but there's a pattern under his popped collar. And I think the belt that he paired it with is equally cool.
Week after week, tournament after tournament, Izod makes an emphatic and bold statement. Webb is leading the way as evident by how great the clothes look on him. It will be interesting to see what happens when Percy and Levin come off the DL.IZOD Golf

Now that Matthew Fitzpatrick has turned pro, we'll be interested observers to see where he makes his clothing deal. He's looking very Jordan Spieth in this outfit.
Isn't this G-MAC by Kartel shirt really cool? It's not a color that everyone can pull off, but it looks particularly good on McDowell. As a matter of fact, everything he wears tends to look pretty good.G-MAC by Kartel
I'm immediately calling Stanford coach Conrad Ray to let him know that I thought Cameron looked great in these seersucker trousers. Would be pretty interesting if the seersucker became the third uniform for the team. It's not too East Coast for me.
Boy, Horschel looks great in this shot, doesn't he?RLX Ralph Lauren Golf
It's not going to be hard to spot Henley in this predominantly red Nike outfit. It's on trend and has lots of color, which we always like.Nike Golf
Just what you'd expect from Peter Millar: Colorful, stylish, and straightforward. Too bad those shoes don't really match the sophistication of the outfit.Peter Millar Golf
If you look back at the ELORD outfits that Na wore this week, each day looked pretty solid. This is a particularly inspiring choice, his all green contrasting against the Pinehurst brown of the Coore-Crenshaw renovations.ELORD
Joost's style has come a long way. Last year we battered him for wearing a lot of colors without cohesion. But we think this look is fresh, graphic and makes great impact without going overboard.
The Frenchman's got his own J. Lindeberg style. There's just a certain aura to the way he carries himself, and while I'm having a hard time with the white belt, I'm glad to see it's not matching the shoes.J. Lindeberg Golf
I don't know about you, but I love this color royal blue, and I think the design is perfect, not only for DJ, but for TV. It's an athletic look on an athletic player.adidas Golf
This is Exhibit A as to why players should not be afraid to put color into their wardrobe. If this is a preview of what we're going to see this week, I'll be staying tuned.
