U.S. Open 2020 Scripting: What Pros Will Be Wearing at Winged Foot

2020 U.S. Open | Winged Foot Golf Club

Winged Foot Golf Club Clubhouse
How cool would it be to wake up in the morning and have your clothes precisely laid out for you for the next four days? No thinking about what matches what and no flipping through endless hangers of choices. There it is — just get dressed and go.

Well, that is exactly what some golf apparel companies do for their ambassadors as a way of marketing certain collections. When it’s a major — like this week's U.S. Open at Winged Foot Golf Club — and millions of television eyes are watching, the process can be a lucrative strategy.

Go ahead and admit that on more than one occasion you’ve watched golf and thought, “Boy that’s a great looking polo shirt Eric van Rooyen is wearing. I wonder who makes it?” (Answer: Greyson Clothiers)

Some brands script athletes months in advance of their products even hitting retail. Others opt to not plan players' outfits, but instead send each player a box full of new seasonal attire and let them self-script.

So while we don’t know what every single player will wear in the U.S. Open, we have pretty good representation from Christian Bezuidenhout to Gary Woodland in the fashion slide show. Enjoy.

Christian Bezuidenhout | Galvin Green
For those unfamiliar with Christian Bezuidenhout — pronounced buh-ZAY-den-hoat — he is a 26-year old South African who plays on the European Tour and has five professional wins. Weather permitting, he will showcase a selection of Galvin Green’s outerwear pieces that come in a wide assortment of waterproof, windproof and warming styles. This category is where Galvin Green exceeds all performance expectations with the belief that the ideal golf jacket is the one you hardly notice you are wearing. (Photo Illustration: Galvin Green)
Keegan Bradley — Travis Mathew
Keegan Bradley — or Keegs as his friends at Travis Mathew refer to him — should be very comfortable wearing selections from the Perfect Polo collection. The cotton/polyester blend in the Zinna polo has enhanced stretch for increased mobility, and the wrinkle-resistance effect will keep the shirt looking neat and clean through the anticipated long rounds. Soft premium-quality fabric provides comfort while still offering performance and style that’s as good on the golf course as it is a backyard barbecue. What Bradley is expected to wear (clockwise from upper left): Thursday — Zinna heather black; Friday — Zinna heather light blue; Saturday — Zinna strong blue; Sunday — Zinna oxblood/white. (Photo Illustration: Travis Mathew)
Bryson DeChambeau | Puma Golf
Bryson DeChambeau will be wearing the new Ignite ProAdapt Caged Wing shoes that have a small added featured on the soles of the shoes — outlined wings of Minerva. The goddess of commerce is often seen around Winged Foot Golf Club.

Rickie Fowler | Puma Golf
Rickie Fowler will be looking quite patriotic for this national championship. On Thursday he will sport the Pars and Stripes Polo, which draws inspiration from the blue- and white-striped awning around the Winged Foot Golf Club clubhouse. That awning-inspired concept carries over to his P Cap, as well. Outside of Fowler's signature orange Sunday look, the U.S. Open outfits are a red, white and blue Americana theme. (Photo Illustration: Puma Golf)
Lanto Griffin | Galvin Green
Lanto Griffin, winner of the 2019 Houston Open, qualified for the U.S. Open by being one of the 11 top players on the Official World Golf Rankings as of Aug. 23, 2020, who hadn’t already qualified. Wearing Galvin Green, he will showcase pieces from the Ventil8 Plus collection, including the Mason mosaic blue polo that has shaped shoulders and sleeves designed to minimize restriction when swinging. His Ventil8 Plus golf pants are lightweight and contain plenty of stretch for movement. (Photo Illustration: Galvin Green)
Chesson Hadley | Peter Millar
Chesson Hadley, tall and lean as a pine tree from his native North Carolina, will crush his Friday look. The Crown Crafted Bullseye precision wool-blend, quarter-zip top has a bit of spandex thrown in for stretch. The desert sky color is from the new fall 2020 group scheduled to debut on the Peter Millar website this month. It will be paired with the white Stealth performance trouser, which has four-way stretch, a shorter rise and trimmer leg opening to create a modern fit. (Photo Illustration: Peter Millar)
Billy Horschel | Ralph Lauren
Billy Horschel is stoked not only for the U.S. Open, but what the week will hold for him from a fashion standpoint. “I’m looking forward to the US Open and to bring in some new pieces from the Polo Golf and RLX lines,” Horschel said. “Long-time partner Ralph Lauren knows exactly what I like to wear, and the new pieces are designed with the most advanced technological fabrics and are super lightweight, enhancing my comfort and performance.” (Illustration: Ralph Lauren)
Viktor Hovland | J. Lindeberg
Viktor Hovland is best known in his native Norway for becoming the first Norwegian player to win the U.S. Amateur [2018 at Pebble Beach]. That win earned him a berth in the 2019 Masters where he also became the first participant from Norway. His looks at Winged Foot will be fairly monotone except for the bright green pants on Sunday. Look for the subtle JL logos that are woven into the knit collar on Thursday’s polo. (Illustration: J. Lindeberg)
Dustin Johnson | Adidas
Dustin Johnson will arrive at the U.S. Open on a torrid streak, having won twice in the last month, including the Tour Championship. So, if momentum plays a factor, he should be positioned to do very well. For his scripting, it’s all about power berry and blues this week, and Adidas will pair the color story with Ultimate 365 tapered pants each day in raw gold, collegiate navy and black. DJ’s shoes will be Adidas Tour360 and CodeChaos.

Sarah Marai, global senior product manager, men’s apparel, Adidas Golf: "Our FW20 color palette took a lot of inspiration from the Japanese culture because of the Olympic year, so the drop as part of our 9/1 collection actually took inspiration from a picture of a samurai's armor that we saw. We really liked the bold purples and blues because they exuded so much emotion and power, which hopefully transition to some added confidence and a strong mindset as players head to the first tee this week in New York."

Kevin Kisner | Peter Millar
Though Kevin Kisner was a member of the University of Georgia’s 2005 NCAA Division I Men's Championship team, there will be no Bulldog red and black in his apparel lineup this week. Should Kisner make it to Saturday's third round, look for him to be weaing blue pants — a special one-unit piece made just for Kisner by Peter Millar. But they do come in a woven twill performance short and the color is called Cape May, which looks stunning with the light grey Perth quarter-zip top.  (Photo: Peter Millar)
Troy Merritt | Galvin Green
Troy Merritt is making his second U.S. Open appearance, having earned his spot in field with a runner-up finish at the Barracuda Championship in August. Because there was no sectional qualifying this year, the tournament's top two players not already exempt from the top 10 and ties qualified. Should Merritt, who has been wearing Galvin Green for three years, make the cut, on Saturday he will wear the navy and white Mike shirt, which is another example of Ventil8 Plus fabric technology. In addition to being engineered to perform, the shirt doesn’t shrink, doesn’t need ironing and is extremely color fast. This means the apparel items wear longer and are a sustainable choice. (Photo Illustration: Galvin Green)
Collin Morikawa | Adidas
There is not much left to be said about Collin Morikawa's beginning on the PGA Tour. The 23-year old joined the scene last year and already has three Tour wins — including this year’s PGA Championship. Perhaps even more impressive is that he has started his career with 22 consecutive made cuts — surpassed only by Tiger Woods' 25. Morikawa will wear pieces from the power berry and blue group, but this look is simple and clean with a classic navy and white stripe polo, white pants and Tour360 XT golf shoes. (Photo: Adidas)
Shaun Norris | Kjus
South African Shaun Norris, 38, is a four-time winner on the Japan Golf Tour who will be making his first U.S. Open appearance. He’ll be wearing pieces from the Kjus fall golf collection that features premium, lightweight insulation and water-repellent finishes, along with high-stretch fabrics that enhance performance and comfort. No detail goes unnoticed — antibacterial finishes for freshness, brushed fabrics for warmth, and anti-slip pant pockets ensure scorecards stay put. (Photo Illustration: Kjus)
Chez Reavie | Peter Millar
Chez Reavie tied for third at last year's U.S. Open. He could be looking real good on Friday if the weather in Mamaroneck, N.Y., is cool enough for him to wear the cape blue Peter Millar Hyperlight quilted vest that’s not only insulated for warmth, but also water-repellent and windproof. Simply paired with the Perth performance white long sleeve top and the EB66 performance five-pocket pant in navy offers a clean tailored look. (Photo: Peter Millar)
Jon Rahm | Adidas
Jon Rahm is another player who will be sporting the power berry color look, and, shown here, is one of two he’s slated to wear in that hue. Notice the light blue micro print on the vertical stripes — it’s the 3-stripe Adidas logo. Clever. Rahm will alternate wearing the Ultimate 365 classic pant in grey on Thursday/Saturday and collegiate navy on Friday/Sunday with his CodeChaos footwear. (Photo: Adidas)
Justin Rose | Bonobos
Justin Rose is looking to add to his 24-win resume, which includes the 2013 U.S. Open and 2016 Olympics. “I’m looking forward to competing at the U.S. Open this week, and even more excited to tee it up in Bonobos,” he said. “Bonobos knows exactly what I like to wear, mixing timeless silhouettes with unmatched technical performance that both look and feel great on and off the course. I’m all about the more refined colors and patterns this time around — a burgundy houndstooth polo paired with a lightweight golf pant in an unexpected light grey is going to be one of my best looks.” (Photo: Bonobos)
Xander Schauffele | Adidas
In 2017, Xander Schauffele became the first rookie to win the PGA Tour Championship and, also aided by an earlier season win, was voted Rookie of the Year by his peers. Already in 12 major championship appearances, already has six top-10 finishes, including ties for fifth, sixth and third in three U.S. Open starts dating back to his first in 2017. Check out the blue mock neck Sport performance polo Schauffele is scheduled to wear on Sunday. Thursday’s Merch polo in navy with grey and white chest stripe has a nice knit collar that really pulls the piece together. He will wear the brand's Tour360 XT shoes. (Photo: Adidas)
Webb Simpson | FootJoy
FootJoy, in addition to apparel scripting, provides plenty to Webb Simpson's arsenal in the form of footwear, gloves, headwear and other accessories. Similar to Tiger Woods wearing red shirts on Sundays, Simpson, the 2012 U.S. Open winner, wears yellow. The reason, according to Simpson, is because it's was his father Sam's favorite color. Sam Simpson died in 2017 due to Lewy body dementia. "He taught me the game and he’s at the center of all my earliest golfing memories," Simpson said.  (Photo Illustration: FootJoy)
Brandt Snedeker | Peter Millar
With five top-10 U.S. Open finishes under his belt, Brandt Snedeker's competitive nature is sure to be dialed up at Winged Foot Golf Club. He'll also be competing for best dressed when wearing the EB66 performance five-pocket pant in one of our favorite colors of the season, field green. The best-selling Peter Millar pants have features like moisture-wicking, quick-dry, shape retention and comfort stretch. The Perth quarter-zip long sleeve top in British grey is the perfect color to coordinate with the green pant. (Photo Illustration: Peter Millar)
Justin Thomas | Ralph Lauren
Justin Thomas, 27, has 13 PGA Tour victories, but is itching to add a U.S. Open title. His accomplishments are long and his style is lean and clean, so he can’t go wrong with the modern patriotic blue and white in his outfits. Polo Ralph Lauren is the official outfitter of the USGA and the U.S. Open, and Thomas and Billy Horschel will wear 2020 U.S. Open commemorative shirts on Tuesday to celebrate the sponsorship. (Illustration: Polo Ralph Lauren)
Erik Van Rooyen | Greyson Clothiers
All of Erik Van Rooyen’s outfits are from Greyson’s Fall 2020 collection. Be on the lookout for a surprise capsule of lifestyle gear that will debut during U.S. Open week, and available exclusively on Greyson’s website. There are two new seasonal colors of the jogger pant — nightingale is a gorgeous take on traditional navy, and eastern fur is the 2020 update to hunter green. The color palette for the week is inspired by this championship and its September date — patriotic and very east coast classic, yet autumnal and transitional. (Photo: Greyson Clothiers)
Lee Westwood | Peter Millar
Lee Westwood, 47 and a 10-time member of the European Ryder Cup Team, is still in search of his first major championship win. On Friday, look for Westwood to be sporting the Perth performance quarter-zip pullover, which has an engineered stripe version that separates solid grey and blue color blocking. There’s a reason the Perth is so popular with Peter Millar ambassadors and it's because of the four-way stretch, moisture-wicking, quick dry and easy care features. The navy EB66 Performance pant is a sure-fire way to create a slimming elongated look. (Photo: Peter Millar)
Gary Woodland | Puma Golf
Reigning U.S. Open champion Gary Woodland will rock Puma x Volition America gear, as well as the new Ignite ProAdapt Caged Wing shoes that feature the same blue- and white-striped pattern inspired by the awning around Winged Foot Golf Club's clubhouse.  (Photo Illustration: Puma Golf)
