Fresh designs for fall will keep athletes protected against the elements at Royal Liverpool.
Nike Golf athletes will stay protected from the predictably chillier temperatures and blustery conditions at this year’s Open Championship with new styles for fall featuring wool and engineered knit fabrics.
Tiger Woods will compete in his first major championship of the season in apparel from the Nike Golf Tiger Woods Collection. The three-time Open Champion will stay warm in the TW Engineered Sweater ($140) with 3-D engineered-knit sleeves — developed with Woods’s insights — that inspired the same sleeve design in the 3-D V-Neck Sweater.
Rory McIlroy will brave the elements at Royal Liverpool in the new Hypervis Half-zip Cover-up ($85). Featuring engineered fabric bonded onto a Therma-FIT fleece, the Hypervis Half-zip has strategically-placed ventilation – athletes will stay warm but won’t overheat. The fabric is super lightweight, providing warmth without bulk. A range of vibrant colors like Volt, Hyper Cobalt and Hyper Pink pop through the ventilated portion of the cover-up.
How will Nike Golf athletes like Paul Casey, Charl Schwartzel and Nick Watney stay warm? The 3D V-Neck Sweater ($130), a poly-wool blend constructed with 3D engineered-knit sleeves that trap heat while allowing for maximum range of motion. The knit is fabricated to be higher in certain zones to contain heat and offer flexibility, and tighter around places like the elbow to reduce material and weight.
“Our athletes will be prepared for every possible weather condition at Royal Liverpool,” says Merritt Richardson, VP of Global Golf Apparel and Footwear. “Every piece of apparel – from polos to sweaters to cover-ups – is made for easy layering and built to move with the athlete’s body. We’ve armed our athletes with some of Nike Golf’s newest and most innovative pieces from the Fall 2014 collection to keep them warm and comfortable no matter what each round brings.”
Eleven Nike Golf athletes will compete at the 2014 Open Championship: Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Paul Casey, David Duval, Oliver Fisher, Tommy Fleetwood, Russell Henley, Francesco Molinari, Thorbjorn Olesen, Charl Schwartzel and Nick Watney.
For added warmth and layering, Woods will also sport the TW Tech 2.0 Cover-up ($130). Underneath, he’ll wear polos from the TW collection: TW Seasonal Bold Stripe polo ($90) on Thursday; TW Engineered Body Map polo ($100) on Friday; TW Seasonal Bold Stripe polo on Saturday; and TW Ultra Polo 3.0 ($95) on Sunday in his signature red hue, Action Red. Woods will finish each look with the TW Adaptive Pant ($125), TW Ultralight Tour cap ($30), TW Mesh Nike belt ($70) and Nike TW’ 14 footwear ($220). Driver and ball: Nike VRS Covert 2.0 Tour and Tour One D.
Underneath the Hypervis Half-zip Cover-up, Rory will sport a variety of polos featuring the mobility chassis, a shoulder seam that is shifted toward the upper back that allows for maximized movement and eliminates distraction. He’ll start and finish the week in the Lightweight Innovation Color polo ($75) – the same design he wore at Augusta and Pinehurst – in addition to Friday’s Innovation Color Block polo ($75) and Saturday’s Innovation Vent 2.0 polo ($75).
