The 10 Most Stylish Golfers of All Time

  • Najib Benouar


There’s a special place in our heart for the most stylish trophy in sports: the Masters Tournament green jacket.

But when the players take to the course for the championship rounds this weekend, don’t expect an entirely dapper affair. Nowadays you’ll see more neon tech fabrics, white belts and oversize logos than slim-cut polos and pressed slacks. Which is a shame.

So we’re taking a longing look back at the 10 most stylish golfers of all time...»

Man of the Hour: Clint Eastwood

Clint Eastwood

Over the weekend, the Pebble Beach golf course held its annual pro-am tournament featuring a who’s who of bold-faced names in sports and entertainment: John Daly, Phil Mickelson, Tom Brady, Jeb Bush, Kenny G... the list goes on.

But the brightest star of the weekend was undoubtedly Clint Eastwood—because he saved a man’s life.

The Gentleman's Guide to Golf

  • Najib Benouar

Call it a hunch, but sometime this summer you’re going to find yourself out on the golf course.

It could be this weekend while visiting the in-laws for Father’s Day. Or an impromptu invitation by the boss on the office retreat next month.

Whatever the case, you should be prepared--and have a few tricks up your sleeve—especially if you’re not exactly a clubhouse regular. So we’ve put together a handy little guide on how to take your next round of golf to the next level. (We’ll spare you all the old-fashioned etiquette rules, like keeping quiet during backswings and not stepping across putting lines on the green.)

Five Masterly Dapper Green Blazers

Green Blazers

It’s easily the most stylish trophy in sports: the Masters’ green jacket.

Coincidentally, a green blazer also happens to be the perfect spring accomplice—especially if you can find one in an airier weave, with softer shoulders and in a less glaring tone than the mostly ceremonial number slung over the winner’s shoulder each April. Luckily, with a little digging, we’ve found a surprisingly plentiful spectrum of solid options out there right now, from pale to Rockham green, Gucci to Woolrich, that you can wear today, without having to beat out Tiger in a shootout down the back nine. (Though we’re not saying you couldn’t.) So, without further ado:

Icon: Bobby Jones

Bobby Jones

With the Masters set to tee off tomorrow, we’d like to take a moment to celebrate the legacy and style of its cofounder, golf legend and all-around dapper Southern gent Bobby Jones.

He lived a life of mythic proportion by dominating the game of golf while never even going pro—by profession, he was a lawyer, and golf was his very serious hobby—all while wearing a tie and tweed trousers.

He won the four major tournaments of his day by age 28, “retired” from golf and went on to codesign America’s most prestigious golf course (Augusta National) and cofound the game’s most prestigious tournament (the Masters) all in his backyard (Atlanta). His style was as fluid as his swing: silk ties tucked into his shirts, cricket sweaters, three-piece suits. Stuff that puts our modern-day tech-fabric-wrapped players to shame. To really understand it, you’ll have to see it for yourself...
