April approaches, bringing with it the first major of the season. A tradition unlike any other; the Masters, golf’s most prestigious tournament.
And when Nike Golf’s biggest stars take to the links — Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Charl Schwartzel, Russell Henley and, for the first time in his career, Seung Yul Noh, have qualified for the major — they’ll do so in the Nike Golf Spring 2015 collection, a line predicated on lightweight breathability and striking fashion.
Neutrals meet quick pops of volt on many of the pieces, which utilize engineered knit for a light, polyester feel and maximal ventilation, regulating heat through those long Georgia days.
Below, take a look at the looks for each of the five abovementioned golfers, comprised mostly of pieces that are now available at select retailers.
Woods starts the week in the white Nike TW Vapor Trail Polo with hints of wolf grey and university red, and the TW ’15 golf shoe in the metallic silver colorway. His TW Adaptive Fit Pant, with perforation in the back yoke and behind the knee for breathability, and the lightweight TW Ultralight Tour Cap remain constant through the week. Friday and Sunday Woods will sport the TW Glow Polo in black and university red, respectively. Saturday he will wear the TW Bold Stripe Polo constructed in a four-way stretch Dri-FIT fabrication.
Sporting a clean collection of white with volt, the current World No. 1 will feature athletic looks throughout the week. He starts off the week in the Major Moment Polo and wears that same polo in the reverse colorway on Saturday. Friday, McIlroy will compete in the Major Moment Launch Polo, which pays homage to Nike’s heritage with the Windrunner-inspired 26-degree angle design on the upper chest. On Sunday, he will wear the Nike Afterburner Polo with a volt-to-white gradient topped with the Nike Tour Legacy Mesh Cap in volt. McIlroy will wear the Nike Modern Pant in white for every round.
The Modern Pant is a new trouser for McIlroy constructed with a stretch woven for more mobility and breathability in the back below the waistline and finished in a sleek tailored fit. Each day McIlroy will rely on the Nike Lunar Control 3 shoe that he helped design.
The 2011 Masters champion will wear a white Major Moment Polo on Thursday, the Nike Tech Vent Stripe Polo on Friday, a white Nike Tech Tipped Polo on Saturday and a black Major Moment Ace Polo on Sunday with a grey or black Nike Dri-FIT Wool Tech Sweater each day. The South African native will pair the sweater and polos with the Nike Modern Pant, Nike Tour Legacy Mesh Cap and Nike Lunar Control 3 shoe.
Henley will suit up in the Nike Plaid Pant on Friday and Saturday while bookending the tournament in the Nike Flat Front Pant on Thursday and Sunday. His Sunday look features the volt Nike Engineered Polo that is made of a poly-wool blend for a natural feel. A Nike Tour Tall Visor, Nike Dri-FIT ½-Zip Top and Nike Lunar Control 3 shoes will accompany his lineup through the week.
SEUNG YUL NOH
Noh will compete in various spring colors of the Nike Tour Legacy Mesh Cap, Nike Dri-FIT ½-Zip Top, Nike Modern Pant and Nike Lunar Control 3. He will sport an all-black head-to-toe look Friday with the Nike Engineered Polo while wearing a volt Major Moment Mach Polo Saturday. The South Korean native will begin and end the week with the Nike Tech Ultra Stripe Polo and Major Moment Commander Polo, respectively.
