Nike has 23 players teeing off at the 2018 Masters Tournament, including 4 amateurs, in Augusta this week. Their elite roster of athletes will be flexing their fashion chops and expressing their unique style, all while maintaining the sense of a team spirit.
Nike athletes will wear darker colours on Thursday and see their sartorial choices fade to lighter hues on Friday; a nod to the calm before the storm. On Saturday, many players will be donning blue shades to signify the anticipated blue skies ahead, while on Sunday, players will suit up in pink shades as a nod to the host courses famous magnolias.
The return of Tiger Woods might garner a lot of the attention, but we suspect all eyes will be on Jason Day’s 2018 Masters Tournament apparel scripts. The Australian brings a relaxed aesthetic to the sport and his youthful look would appear equally at home on or off the course. He famously raised eyebrows for being the first player to wear high tops on the first day of The Open at Royal Birkdale.
This creative interpretation of the dress code gives us plenty to look forward as he takes to the fairways of the 2018 Masters Tournament. Here are just some of the highly anticipated styles from Jason Day’s 2018 Master Tournament Apparel Scripts from Nike Golf.
The Essential Polo
Perhaps the most accessible of golf’s fashion picks, Jason Day will be showcasing a new range of NK Dry Pique polo shirts during the Masters. Similar to the recent “Made In Italy” range, this updated style features a contrasting stripe sleeve which is perfect for Jason Day’s relaxed style. For those looking to get ahead of the trends with the latest Nike Golf clothing, all new styles are available to purchase on Golfposer.
This relaxed fit and soft pique, performance fabric is a natural choice for the fashion-forward. Delicate details like the classic Nike swoosh on the sleeve make this an instant classic. Jason Day will wear Black on Thursday, Bone on Friday, Nebula Blue on Saturday and then close the tournament in Thunder Blue. Fans of the updated classic will also be able to purchase two more classic colours, including white, gunsmoke and wolf grey. Attendees at the 2018 Masters will be able to visit the Nike Golf pop-up to get their exclusive kit customised.
We’ve already seen players and caddies sporting the latest golf caps, which makes the arrival of the latest Nike Golf Rope Cap highly anticipated. Jason Day will champion this style throughout the tournament. The understated style features a prominent Nike swoosh on the front and a contrasting rope trim in bright magenta or white. Like his polo shirts, Jason Day’s caps will change colour daily.
For fans of golfing apparel, the chance to get hold of a limited edition item is naturally enticing. In a nod to his playful approach to attire, Jason Day will wear a Magnolia print hat and shoes which will be available to purchase closer to the event. The soon-to-be collectable items feature a grey-toned flower print with a bright magenta Nike swoosh sitting front and centre. The playful print will also be available on branded T-shirts and as an accent on shoes.
Tour Premier Footwear
Self-confessed sneakerheads will be clamouring to get their hands on the latest offering from Nike Golf. Jason Day has already showcased the Tour Premier range which will be available to purchase later in the season. Continuing the magnolia trend, Jason Day will take to the course in a bold print shoe on the final day of the tournament. This will hopefully be a more welcome choice of footwear than his high tops of 2017.
The innovate shoes feature a unique seamless integrating lacing system which means they fit like a glove and cannot come undone. A loose shoelace is the last thing you want to be dealing with, and the latest innovate from Nike Golf solves this problem in a painfully stylish way.
The synthetic leather upper comes with a two-year waterproof warranty, making it the ideal choice for all conditions. Nike has plans to release more colours throughout the year, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for new announcements. And for fans of the magnolia print, you can also find this daubed across the Lunar Control Vapor 2 and Roshe G style.
Golf has come a long way since the days of stuffy dress codes and the 2018 Masters Tournament is clearcut proof of this fact. The playfulness of Jason Day’s apparel scripts gives us plenty to look forward to besides the actual sport at hand. While he may have raised eyebrows for his choice of clothing in the past, we suspect this tournament will see him ticking all of the style boxes and firmly cementing himself as one to watch on and off the golf course.
