What did Walker get when he won the Valero Texas Open at the TPC San Antonio last Sunday? A pair of Ole' San-an-ton Texas Cowboy boots! Oh, and a check for $1.1 million and 500 FedEx Cup points. So he's got that goin' for him, too. Well played, Texas Ranger. Well played.
Spieth put together another strong tournament, finishing T-2 at Valero. He sported this softer teal shade Sunday and joined the long list of well-dressed players who have been working the color into their wardrobes. Jordan's not a guy who's going to take a ton of risks with is clothes, and that's cool. But this green-and-gray setup is a simple upgrade that still elevates his style.Under Armour
The best way to work a navy-and-white nautical look into your game and avoid any Judge Smails, "It's easy to grin when your ship's coming in …" references are to balance the classic style with contemporary accents. The neon-yellow tipping on Horschel's polo and nylon belt does just the trick.RLX-Ralph Lauren
Remember those Magic Eye books where you cross your eyes, stare at the page and suddenly a 3-D figure appears to jump out of the book? Well, I tried that with Na's shirt but got nothing. Prints may be trending, but this is just too much print for one man's polo. Technically it's the kaleidoscope distortion of this image against an optic white background that makes it difficult to look at. You don't really need to recognize all that, however, to know it's one tough shirt. Normally Na brings some cool style to the table. He's gonna need to re-tee this one.

I get that everything's big in Texas but Yosemite Sam back there has got to be blocking somebody's view in that hat. Down in front!Nike Golf
The monochromatic move is one of the easiest and most stylish looks to pull together on any level. One of the added benefits of working with a solid canvas is that even the smallest details stand out in strong ways. Got a cool new hat, belt or pair of shoes? Work it into a solid set up and don't be surprised by how many people take notice. Canizares's two-tone braided belt is a perfect example of the simple stand-out style.Colmar
Listen, I'm all about artistic license but this camouflage sweater wouldn't even blend in on a Grateful Dead acid trip. Sometimes fashion can go a little too far, and this is exhibit A.J. Lindeberg
In one of the strangest examples of layering I've seen this season, Park pulled out the "I'm wearing everything I own at once" look Thursday in San Antonio. Never mind this all just looked awkward together. It begged the question: If Park's forearms, upper-arms and chest were all cold, why not just wear a sweater?
RE: The cold-weather wear issue. Kisner demonstrated how players can protect themselves against frigid sub-60 temps on tour while still observing standard style norms in this base layer, polo, sweater combo Thursday at the Valero.Callaway Apparel
Hoffman's been working more matte style into his gear over the last few seasons and is quietly becoming one of the tour's more stylish pros. His flatter-finish gray belt has become a staple in his look, and it makes for a fresh alternative to the standard straps you see throughout the year. My man's pants are still way too long, though, and he's gotta visit a tailor before he can truly crack the ranks of the best dressed dudes in the game.Travis Mathew, Oakley
