Golf’s fourth and final major of the 2019 season is contested on Northern Ireland’s most challenging 18 holes. Defined by its rolling sand dunes and coastal views, the links course has hosted major tournaments for more than 100 years. Participants, even in July, face cool temperatures and bursts of rain — an environment that requires sympathetic garments.
“Knowing that the conditions during the tournament can change quickly, and can be quite challenging, we wanted to focus on outerwear," says Kelly Tweeden, VP and Creative Director for Nike Golf, Nike Tennis and Nike Skateboarding. "As experts in creating product that performs as well as it looks, Stone Island was a natural partner in finding the best solutions."
The garments will debut during the tournament. Two colorways of the jacket (grey and blue) and three of the crew neck (grey, blue and yellow) release globally July 25.
