Nike Golf: Major Comfort. Zero Distractions.
The other Nike athletes vying for the major championship title will be wearing polos that fall under the umbrella of breathability and comfort leveraging Nike's Aeroreact and Dri-FIT technologies. The other polos seen on the links at Erin Hills are the Raglan polo, the MM Fly Aeroreact blade polo, the Mobility Speed Stripe polo and the Dry Tipped polo.
Nike's color story for the US Open is pigment burst. This is an overarching brand color story that pairs explosive colors such as Sport Fuschia, Bright Mandarin, Electro Green and Vivid Sky against neutrals for a disruptive look. The 20 Nike athletes in the field will wear this bright color palette against the Wisconsin backdrop of Erin Hills.
Here is a head-to-toe look at what McIlroy and Day will wear on each day of the tournament:
McIlroy will wear a white Nike Classic 99 hat, the Zonal Cooling MM Fly blade polo in Electro Green, Chlorine Blue, Wolf Grey and Deep Night, the Nike Flex Pant and Lunar Control Vapor footwear.
Day will wear the Nike Classic 99 hat in black and white, the Zonal Cooling MM Fly Blade polo in Sport Fuschia, Wolf Grey, Black and Chlorine Blue, the Flex pant and the Nike Lunar Command footwear during each day of the tournament.
