Style: A brand new Billy

Mr. Style gives tour pro Billy Mayfair an easy, five-minute makeover

No one wants to beat up on the good guys, but sometimes they need a little style counseling. Take Billy Mayfair, a five-time winner on the PGA Tour and one of its most well-liked players, yet a fashion neophyte who sticks to the basics after 18 years as a pro. Mayfair's wardrobe makes him look like the typical golfer. I showed him how he can do better.

GET FIT

Billy had a super-size golf wardrobe. For a leaner look, he needed shirts and pants that weren't so baggy.

LOOK SHARP

Khaki and white is good for a casual round but not for the PGA Tour. Billy needed a more formal outfit.

GO BOLD

Pale skin like Billy's needs a polo in deep, rich colors (Antigua, $40).

WAISTED

Opportunity Investing in a nice belt is a way to inject a little style into an outfit (House of Fleming, $530).

WOOL RULES

Trousers made from quality wool (look for superfine fabric such as Super 120s) have a neat appearance (Zanella, $325).

DITCH THE SADDLES

Try a solid color in a classic design: the darker the shade, the more formal the look (FootJoy, $320).
