Inför US Masters är det inte längre spelarna själva som slänger ned lite grejer i sina väskor och kör till Augusta. Nej, nu är det marknadsavdelningarna som noga sätter ihop veckans outfits för att maximera försäljningen.

Nike-spelarna har i år utrustats med kläder ur vårkollektionen med "a color palette of neutrals with pops of volt". Färgerna åsido så är det kläder som passar för de förmodat höga temperaturerna med funktionsmaterial.

De fem Nike-spelare som är med i årets första Major (under förutsättning att Tigers comeback blir av) är Rory McIlroy, Charl Schwartzel, Russell Henley, rookien Seung Yul Noh och så maestro himself, Tiger Woods då.

En annan gammal grej som tycks vara på väg ut, tack gode gud, är de bylsiga och pösiga kläderna från förr.

– Det är skön och modern passform på kläderna, säger McIlroy. Det är inget överflödigt tyg utan lite tajtare plagg som ger mig den rörlighet jag behöver i spelet.

Bilderna ovan visar spelarnas så kallade scripting och den som vill veta mer kan läsa specifikationerna här och det mesta går att köpa i shopen redan nu eller beställa på Nike.com/golf


Tiger Woods
Woods starts the week in the white Nike TW Vapor Trail Polo with hints of wolf grey and university red while featuring the TW ’15 golf shoe in the metallic silver colourway. His TW Adaptive Fit Pant, with perforation in the back yoke and behind the knee for breathability, and the lightweight TW Ultralight Tour Cap remain constant through the week. Friday and Sunday Woods will sport the TW Glow Polo in black and university red, respectively. Saturday he will wear the TW Bold Stripe Polo constructed in a four-way stretch Dri-FIT fabrication.

Rory McIlroy
Sporting a clean collection of white with volt, the current World No. 1 will feature athletic looks throughout the week. He starts off the week in the Major Moment Polo and wears that same polo in the reverse colourway on Saturday. Friday, McIlroy will compete in the Major Moment Launch Polo, which pays homage to Nike’s heritage with the running apparel-inspired 26-degree angle design on the upper chest. On Sunday, he will wear the Nike Afterburner Polo with a volt to white gradient topped with the Nike Tour Legacy Mesh Cap in volt. McIlroy will wear the Nike Modern Pant in white for every round. The Modern Pant is a new trouser for Rory constructed with a stretch woven for more mobility and breathability in the back below the waistline and finished in a sleek tailored fit. Each day McIlroy will rely on the Nike Lunar Control 3 which he helped design.

Charl Schwartzel
The 2011 Masters champion will wear a white Major Moment Polo on Thursday, the Nike Tech Vent Stripe Polo on Friday, a white Nike Tech Tipped Polo on Saturday and a black Major Moment Ace Polo on Sunday with a grey or black Nike Dri-FIT Wool Tech Sweater each day. The South African native will pair the sweater and polos with the Nike Modern Pant, Nike Tour Legacy Mesh Cap and Nike Lunar Control 3 shoe.

Russell Henley
Henley will suit up in the Nike Plaid Pant on Friday and Saturday while bookending the tournament in the Nike Flat Front Pant on Thursday and Sunday. His Sunday look features the volt Nike Engineered Polo which is made of a poly-wool blend for a natural feel. A Nike Tour Tall Visor, Nike Dri-FIT 1Ž2-Zip Top and Nike Lunar Control 3 shoes will accompany his lineup through the week.

Seung Yul Noh
Noh will compete in various spring colours of the Nike Tour Legacy Mesh Cap, Nike Dri-FIT 1/2-Zip Top, Nike Modern Pant and Nike Lunar Control 3. He will sport an all-black head-to-toe look Friday with the Nike Engineered Polo while wearing a volt Major Moment Mach Polo Saturday. The South Korean native will begin and end the week with the Nike Tech Ultra Stripe Polo and Major Moment Commander Polo, respectively.
