Looks of the week!
Monday, June 1, 2009
We have to give the nod of Look of the Week to all those who participated in the ‘Pink Out’ Saturday at Colonial. The PGA Tour Wives Association got its message out and it was clear that the golf world wanted to show its support of Amy Mickelson and all those affected by breast cancer.
Amy let the world know that she felt the love and support, writing a thank you to all those who were involved on philmickelson.com.
“Today’s ‘Pink Out’ will help all people, whether they’re fighting breast cancer or helping a loved one, know that they are not alone,” said Amy, who was home watching the Colonial broadcast.
Showing support through colors, ribbons or bracelets has turned into quite the fashion staple; we believe and hope that this won’t be the last time we see this kind of support!

The only other look worth mentioning was when Steve Stricker hoisted up his trophy in that red tartan jacket… It definitely added some spice to the tournament, especially in a sea of regular (plain) looking golf outfits – no fun for us! Our thanks go to all those tournaments that add a little extra flair in their celebrations.
Throughout the year there are 12 or so tournaments that give more than a big trophy and a nice chunk of change – they give a little wardrobe decoration for the player to celebrate in. Now, some are obviously more sought after (need I even mention the green jacket?); some are very classy and simple and then there are those with a little more personality.
There are a few tournaments out there that add a fun twist to their winner’s celebration; the Viking Classic in Madison, Miss. has its winner hoist up the trophy in a chef’s coat and at the Zurich Classic in New Orleans, the winner celebrate in a sash, decked out Cajun style. These celebratory fashion statements might not make everyone’s radar but they definitely stick out in our minds.
Of course, one thing is for certain: we know that the players who are talented enough to celebrate are more that happy to don whatever the tournament puts them in, as long as they are crowned the champion.
