We take a look at what Team USA will be wearing at Hazeltine after RLX Ralph Lauren unveiled their scripted Ryder Cup Outfits.
Ryder Cup Outfits – RLX Ralph Lauren

Fashion powerhouse Ralph Lauren will continue their relationship with team USA at the Ryder Cup, again providing the players and captains with a selection of scripted tournament apparel and ceremonial designer suits. Having first associated themselves with the US team under Tom Watson two years ago, the reception from both the players and the fans proved that the luxurious sports line, RLX by Ralph Lauren, was a fitting match for what the team required on the golf course. The team may not have emerged victorious that time, but they certainly went one-up on team Europe early in the style ranks.
As may be expected, the US colours of red white and blue dominate the colour palette and, as may be expected by existing fans of the RLX brand, strong stripes and colour blocking is featured throughout the practice and tournament day outfits. As far as performance is concerned, the technical fabrics which are used throughout the RLX Ralph Lauren line are certain to meet the demands and expectations of such a high profile event in the state of Minnesota. Each style is ergonomically designed with the modern, athletic golfer in mind; minimal swing restriction and supreme levels of comfort are almost guaranteed with every RLX golf garment.
Ryder Cup Outfits – Practice Days
The practice days will see some classic designs from RLX with engineered stripe detailing, vibrant colours off-set with white and navy tones along with flattering fits provided by the “airflow” shirt styles. Expect to see these looks on the three practice days preceding the 2016 Ryder Cup.
Ryder Cup Outfits – Friday
Team USA probably start with our most favourite look from the entire week. It’s a strong combination of red, navy and white with the subtle pinstripe pants offering a classical yet contemporary look with a tailored aesthetic. The sweater features team USA branding and a single contrast stripe at the right sleeve with three stars at the cuff, whilst the RLX outerwear option is the iconic Quilted CoolWool jacket which also made an appearance two years ago; the red panel detail brings this style to life and is one of the most comfortable and stylish garments in golf outerwear today.
Ryder Cup Outfits – Saturday
Bold stripes dominate the look for Saturday with a fresh pair of white RLX Range pants as the most obvious match for such a statement shirt. A Thermocool Button zip will be the mid-layer option and incorporates USA16 branding at the sleeve – matched with the dual stripe tab at the rear of the neck.
Ryder Cup Outfits – Sunday
A sharp looking navy and white combination will feature on Singles Sunday at Hazeltine with the option of a matching crew neck sweater – a similar style of which will be arriving in Spring 2017. Team USA branding features heavily once again, as it does on the reverse of the belt buckles and inner waistband of the team’s pants; it’s all about the attention to detail with RLX Ralph Lauren.
These outfits will be on sale in the USA in a very select number of locations, whilst a percentage of the sales will also go towards the PGA of America’s 41 Sections in a bid to grow and teach the game of golf. PGA REACH will also receive a portion, a scheme which is intent on improving the lives of veterans, youth and diverse populations through golf.
