Everyone knows the weather for the Open Championship is unpredictable…to say the least and Nike Golf is providing staff members with new fall wear featuring wool and engineered knit fabrics for the 2014 Open at Royal Liverpool.
“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.”
Tiger Woods will be wearing apparel from the Nike Golf Tiger Woods Collection including the TW Engineered Sweater ($140) with 3D engineered-knit sleeves developed with input from Woods. The same sleeve design is found in the 3D 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.
Twelve Nike Golf athletes will compete at the 2014 Open Championship: Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Paul Casey, Ashley Chesters, David Duval, Oliver Fisher, Tommy Fleetwood, Russell Henley, Francesco Molinari, Thorbjorn Olesen, Charl Schwartzel and Nick Watney.WHAT'S YOUR REACTION?
