Masters style - the men in white

Two of golf's more fashion-concious players went back to basics at The Masters yesterday. Prior to the start of the tournament, Bubba Watson (left) announced his intention to sport an all-white outfit on all four days of the tournament. Not to be undone, golf's self-appointed style leader Ian Poulter swapped his usual garish designs for something similarly understated.

Watson is kitted out by Californian golfwear brand Travis Mathew and is using the tournament as a sartorial experiment: “The idea is to find one signature look, one comfort zone, and let it play out as it will. One outfit for one tournament. I think this may be a first. It’s certainly the first I’ve ever heard of in modern golf.”

As a theory it makes sense - exerting any brain cells on deciding what to wear in the morning becomes a thing of the past, and in a sport where psychology is everything, such minute alterations can make the difference.

Although the all-white look could leave you open to accusations of a Jesus complex (not necessarily uncommon in pro golf), we think it works well, particularly on the hallowed, emerald green fairways of the Augusta National. It also makes a change from the pastels and vivid colour clashes beloved of many tour pros.

We can't imagine Poulter will be able to stay as restrained for a full four days. Watch out for our upcoming golf style special in the June issue. www.travismathew.com
