There weren’t many memorable style choices at the Masters, here’s one player that impressed our style editors
It’s not uncommon to see a sea of navy at a golf tournament of any level, but this Masters seemed more navy than ever. And while there were some stripes and muted red tones among the field’s golf shirt selections, these are not considered bold or impressive style moves whatsoever. Even the shoe choices seemed uninspired—an easy style move we typically see plain-dressing golfers take advantage of to spice up a look.

There were however, a few exceptions that deserve credit as we wrap up our Masters coverage. Before we get to the winner of Best Dressed at the 2022 Masters, let's review some honorable mentions. A handful of players came out with highlighter pink shades that caused a bit of stir, like Tiger Woods’s head-turning mock neck shirt or Viktor Hovland’s striped pink pants. There were a few pops of turquoise throughout the Nike-sponsored golfers’ apparel. Though most of the pieces worn at Augusta are not available to purchase yet, expect to see this color a lot this season in golf apparel offerings. Justin Thomas made some waves with his final-round yellow pants and as always, Jason Kokrak played around with bold prints fearlessly. The effort from these golfers to not pull the first blue or black golf shirt and pants from the closet is commended, but let’s focus on one player who showed up each day with stylish and easy-to-replicate golf looks: Tony Finau.
Over all four rounds of the Masters, Tony Finau quietly put on a clinic of how to put together unique, modern golf outfits—a refreshing break from the overly traditional looks we primarily saw at Augusta. Finau started the week with a vertical-striped blue golf shirt with styling reminiscent of linen short sleeve button downs that are extremely on-trend in the fashion world. He paired the top with a simple white flat brim cap and white pants that enhanced the coastal look even more. Vertical stripes are a flattering pattern and a great alternative to traditional navy striped golf shirts.
Tony Finau's First-Round Look
Finau’s second-round look was centered around another unique combination of blue and navy stripes on a color-blocked polo with an abstract diagonal stripe pattern on one side and a plain navy block on the other. Contrasting sleeves with a piped arm cuff and collar added a preppy touch to the modern golf shirt. He paired the top with dark khaki pants for a youthful-yet-sophisticated look.
Tony Finau's Second-Round Look
Golf fans were torn over Finau’s moving-day outfit, primarily the orange and navy quarter-zip top with neon pink stripes. Like it or not, he pulled it off flawlessly. Embracing the brightness of the pink, the three-time PGA Tour winner wore a hat of the same shade that gave the color an intentional feel in the outfit. Most golfers may not have the confidence to wear such bright colors, but it put him bounds above the rest of the field that played it safe with overly commonplace golf looks.
Tony Finau's Third-Round Look
To wrap up the week, Finau came with his simplest look, but was able to still make it fashion-forward and youthful. He wore navy pants with a plain white golf shirt and topped it off with a vibrant blue flat-brim cap. It’s a blend of 1960s golf style with almost a hipster modern finish. Small details like wearing a braided belt in the exact shade of his pants with perfect tailoring are what take this seemingly plain look to the next level, style-wise.

So if you’re looking for some inspiration on how to enhance your golf looks this season, take a page from Finau’s Masters picks. He proved that you don’t have to wear joggers and a rope cap to put together a modern stylish golf outfit and that pops of bright colors among traditional tones is always worth the fashion risk.
