It was quite an honor to be named one of GOLF’s Most Stylish People in Golf this January! It’s not the first time I’ve been called out for my fashion on the course, but it is always very humbling to be considered among other great men and women in the sport.
During my time with GOLF, I shared a few rules that I live by that I wanted to share with all of my fans. These help guide me so that I am always looking good - on and off the course!
- Iron your clothes – I know it seems like it is a pain, but really it only takes a few extra minutes to do and it helps make your outfit look like a million bucks! You look much more professional when your clothes are wrinkle-free.
- Don’t wear a white belt – … Unless you are wearing white pants – that’s the only time you should wear a white belt. For everything else, get a basic brown, black or beige belt. You can even try a few color belts to pull out a pop of color in your shirt or your pants.
- Make sure your clothes fit – Sometimes your outfit can be a great outfit, but if it doesn’t fit you right, it’s not going to look great. Take the time to try on your clothes and buy styles that fit you best, or get them tailored so that they are flattering on you.
- Basics are your best friends – I get a lot of inspiration from rock stars and musicians who just wear a basic white or black t-shirt and add a leather jacket or a pop of color to liven up the outfit. You can’t go wrong with something like that.
One other very exciting piece of news that I wanted to share with all of you was announced at the 2018 PGA Merchandise Show - I am launching my very own capsule collection in collaboration with Ralph Lauren RLX! Talk about a dream come true! I have always been a huge fan of Ralph Lauren and have partnered with them for the past 8 years. I can count on them to help me look my best. Now, my personal favorite styles and colors will be available for men and women to help them look their best! This is truly one of the most incredible opportunities I’ve been given in all my time as a professional golfer.
The collection will be available on July 15, and you can see me competing in it at the PGA Championship – so be on the lookout for that!
