Those U.S. sweaters look familiar for a reason

September 26, 2014

What's the deal with those retro sweaters the U.S. team debuted Friday morning at Gleneagles?


They're a variation of the sweaters the U.S. team wore in 1993 at the Belfry -- which, in addition, to being Tom Watson's last turn as U.S. captain, was the last time the U.S. won a Ryder Cup on foreign soil.


Watson wanted to bring that image back, so he specifically asked Polo create it as inspiration. The intarsia sweaters, made of merino wool and perfect for the Scottish weather, were kept under wraps until Friday morning.
