The Best (And Worst) Dressed Golfers Of All Time

Nothing is more subjective than style, here is a look at some of the classic dressers and those who just don’t give a s***.

Payne Stewart

A true legend and gentleman of the game, it would be unthinkable not to include him in this list. The Hall of famer and three time major winner, tragically died in an air accident aged just 42. His ‘short pants’ are one of the most iconic images in golf and many players paid tribute to the man by donning a pair for the tournament that followed his death.

Jesper Parnevik 

The Swede famously introduced Elin Nordegren to Tiger Woods, publicly voicing his regret in 2009. Jesper’s upturned cap is certainly a trademark with Ryder cup captains having his specially customized. Nicknamed ‘the spaceman’, Jesper regularly wore Johan Lindeberg but has recently signed with Puma.


Seve Ballesteros 

During the 70’s and 80’s Seve was Slazenger’s pin-up boy and the flair he showed on the golf course was matched by his classy dress sense. The car park king always looked dapper and his recent death was a massive loss to the sport.


Adam Scott

The Australian usually dresses well and looks the part on the course. His style is a little conformist, and well, a bit typical and boring so it’s time to change the focus.

Rickie Fowler

The 26-year old is well known for his affection for orange. You can’t go to a tournament without seeing an army of mini-Rickies imitating his snapback and west coast surfer look. The world number 5 has toned it down a bit lately and when you see his swimsuit model girlfriend, Alexis Randock, perhaps ditching the novelty flair clobber is for the best.

John Daly

Moving on, Big John takes his zero f***s attitude onto the course since his partnership with Loudmouth clothing.


Woody Austin

in keeping with the zero f***s attitude is this man. His shirts are just diabolically good, I would love to meet the person responsible for some of these questionable patterns.


Ian Poulter

Ian is a divisive figure on a good day. He took being outwardly patriotic to the extreme early on in his career and now has his own clothing company, obviously named after himself.
