What the U.S. Ryder Cup team will be wearing (and other Ryder Cup apparel)



With just two weeks to go until the 2018 Ryder Cup, the U.S. side has released details of the apparel that their team will wear for the three days of action at Le Golf National.

Ralph Lauren created the clothing collection for the 2018 U.S. side, with the world famous brand opting for a classic, stylish and patriotic look. The entire Ralph Lauren Ryder Cup Collection is available to view here.

Friday’s Outfit

The U.S. side will kick off day one with a navy polo with white stripes that will feature the Ryder Cup logo on the front of the shirt, and ‘USA’ printed on the collar which contains red lining. Should a member of the U.S. side decide to wear their ribbed collar up on day one, a message reading ‘United We Stand’ will be visible. If the weather gets chilly in Paris, players will have a navy micro sleeve vest with red zippers to keep themselves warm. Simple white pants will complete the outfit for the first day of action.

Saturday’s Outfit

The U.S. side will wear a simple white lightweight stretch pique golf shirt with a navy collar and placket on day two. Pin-stripe pants will accompany the stylish shirt on the second day of action, a feature that will no doubt please Phil Mickelson, who is no stranger to the pin-stripe pants look. Players can wear a navy, and white cool wool jacket should the temperatures drop on day two.

Sunday’s Outfit

It’s all business for the U.S. side for Sunday’s singles action, with a classic navy golf shirt paired with white pants. The polo shirt features horizontal stripes of stars to add a modern touch to the minimalistic style. ‘United We Stand’ will once again feature underneath the ribbed collar of the shirt on Day 3. A navy technical jersey pullover with a camouflaged pattern will be the cool weather option for the final day’s play.

PUMA Releases Ryder Cup Fan Collection

    Is it just me, or does it look like Ralph Lauren just phoned this one in? Because other than the pinstriped pants, it looks like the only thing RL changed was the year from 2016 to 2018 on the back of the shirts-YAWN….. I just hope they put some thought into the rain-gear, we don’t want a repeat of 2010!!

    Paris in early October. Don’t think we’ll see those perky little polo shirts much. Fleeces and rainsuits I suspect.

    I like. I will revamp my entire golf wardrobe with the U.S. Ryder Cup Team fashions… because I want to feel like I am/was on the Team.

    We’ve had this pinstripe stuff before. Way to be boring

Forum Thread of the Day: “Ball in the thick rough – what club to use?”



Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from jjfcpa who asks fellow members what their preferred choice of club is when their ball is in thick rough. A variety of irons and hybrids are mentioned by our members who delve into the discussion of course management.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • RainShadow: “For me, that sot would be a 7 iron, open the face a little and play a runner up to the front of the green. Open face will help a bit with getting stuck in the grass.”
  • golfgirlrobin: “Club choice depends on whether you’re willing to accept a bogey or whether you insist on making double.”
  • ChipNRun: “I would try a hinge and hold action. Take a half swing with plenty of hinge action and punch down on the ball with limited follow-through. Use the big muscles of the shoulders – you don’t want to hurt yourself trying to muscle it. Probably choose something between a PW and a 7i. You’ll need to hold firmly with L hand, so the grass doesn’t wrap around the hosel and deloft the club face.”
  • kcd38: “If it is 200 plus from the green and a decent lie, hybrid. If it is less than 200 from the green and sunk down a little, I usually go with my 8 iron and play the face slightly open knowing the grass will grab the hosel and shut the face. Definitely need some speed to get out of the thick stuff.”
