Nike Golf Gets Fresh for the Biggest Tournament of the Year
Two key apparel technologies will help to keep the 13 Nike athletes who are competing in this year’s first major championship cool and comfortable throughout an entire round of golf: Aeroreact, a responsive lightweight fabric that is uniquely engineered to adapt to changes in an athlete’s temperature, and Zonal Cooling, which provides optimal breathability where the body produces the most heat.
As for shoes, McIlroy will wear the Nike Lunar Control Vapor, including a new PE on Sunday. For his first major tournament as a Nike athlete, Day will compete in Air Zoom TW 71 PEs during all four days of the tournament.
Here's a head-to-toe look at what McIlroy and Day will wear on each day of the tournament:
McIlroy tournament look consists of daily colorways of the Nike Classic 99 hat, Aeroreact polo, Flex pant and Lunar Control Vapor footwear.
Day will wear various colorways of the Nike Classic 99 hat, Flex pant and Air Zoom TW71 PE footwear during each day of the tournament. On Thursday and Friday he'll wear the Aeroreact polo, and on Saturday and Sunday he'll play in the Zonal Cooling polo.
Eleven additional Nike athletes will be competing in the field, including Paul Casey, Kevin Chappell, Ross Fisher, Tommy Fleetwood, Russell Henley, Trevor Immelman, Brooks Koepka, Francesco Molinari, Alex Noren, Thomas Pieters and Jhonattan Vegas.
