Predictable doesn’t have to mean boring
Monday, September 13, 2010
Dustin Johnson had a memorable weekend at the BMW Championship, collecting a victory after what seems like a year filled with “major” mishaps, and looking classy and dapper as he strolled down the fairways.
Adidas has done a great job scripting Johnson’s outfits. They seem to match his “cool guy” demeanor.
Johnson’s look is no surprise, and there is something to be said about predictability – it may be a bit boring to see on a weekly basis, but it’s nice to know that there are a few guys left on Tour that fit the motto “What you see is what you get.”
The parallels between wardrobe and personality were clear-cut last weekend. From the repetitive to the confused and interestingly stylish, all were present at Cog Hill. Here are a couple of examples:
Ryan Moore. Still without a clothing sponsor (clearly the way he likes it), Moore seems to be getting a little craftier with his clothing choices. Moore is clearly comfortable with himself and his game. Not too many players could pull off the sponsor-less look week in and week out, but Moore sure can! And the best part is we never know what he is going to pull out next.
Tiger Woods. Did he really think he was going to get away with his repeat outfit? Woods wore the same Nike shirt Sunday at BMW as he did Sunday at the PGA Championship. I know there is only so much you can do with a red-only Sunday color palette, but Nike isn’t lacking in fabric and style choices. So why the fashion faux pas?
