One week before summer officially kicks off, the world’s best golfers will compete in the second Major Championship of the year at Oakmont Country Club in Oakmont, PA. Nike athletes will showcase styles that represent an optic shift in Nike Golf’s Summer 2016 collection.
Two key technologies — Nike UV Reveal and engineered knit — debut on polos with either traditional or blade collars. Nike UV Reveal provides protection from the sun and heat. At the same time, the technology reveals underlying color across the shoulder when the fabric is stretched, highlighting the mobility of the polo throughout the swing. Rory McIlroy will don the Nike MM Fly Blade and the Nike MM Fly Blade Block polo, both with blade collars. These lightweight Dri-FIT polos are constructed from engineered knit and ergonomic seams for a full range of motion.
Eleven Nike Athletes are scheduled to compete at the 2016 US Open, including past champion McIlroy as well as Charl Schwartzel, Brooks Koepka, Paul Casey, Kevin Chappell, Patrick Rodgers, Tony Finau, Romain Wattel, Kevin Tway, Miguel Tabuena and Denny McCarthy.
