Each of the Nike athletes will be not only dressed in the new Autumn / Winter collection for the tournament, but will also be showcasing the latest sporting technology, garments designed to provide ultimate weather protection and maximum breathability.

New A/W polo’s, outerwear and shoes will be debuted at the event next week, with each key player dressed in the new collection, still in fitting with their signature golf styles. As with any major tournament, Nike has released detail of each athletes outfit for each day of the event, a great way to showcase the new lines and their performance capabilities.

One of the new collection pieces which will be launched at the Open Championship is the innovative Nike Hyperadapy Storm-FIT jacket – If the weather changes, this garment will provide ultimate weather protection throughout the event. The unique jacket, which will be worn by Rory McIlroy, features a sweater-like stretch material and an impenetrable outer layer – with both elements working together to provide maximum protection without sacrificing performance.

Merritt Richardson, Vice President of Global Golf Apparel and Footwear for Nike Golf said; “We make sure our athletes have the base layers, Dri-FIT polo’s, cover-ups and outerwear so they are prepared for a round that could see four different seasons over 18 holes.

With our breathable, lightweight fabrics, layering is key without adding weight or bulk.  Our athletes will be armed with the essentials so they don’t have to think about their apparel during their quest for a Major Championship trophy.”
