U.S. Open Primer: The English Are Coming

Luke Donald: pretty in pink.

Golf’s toughest test kicks off today as the U.S. Open begins at The Olympic Club and we think the time is right for one of the game’s great Englishmen to claim his first major. Our picks are the world’s top two ranked players, Luke Donald or Lee Westwood. I know, really going out on a limb here, but hear me out. With most of the talk centering around Tiger, Phil, Rory and Bubba, this could be an ideal opportunity for both to sneak under the radar with a big win for one of them.

And what are the world’s best wearing this week? After Eldrick’s big win at the Memorial, he is a favourite heading in, as well as a lock to bore us with his NIKE outfits. With Tiger starting to peak, we’ve also noticed NIKE has been pushing the new TW shoes which we covered a few weeks back. Rickie Fowler will be looking for his first major and PUMA has him covered. Ian Poulter also impressed us with some of his best at IJP Design.

I see the smooth world No. 1 Luke Donald leaving The Olympic Club with the U.S. Open trophy in tow. Let this be a lesson to all: look good and you will play better.

NBA side note: Oklahoma City looked the part of future NBA Champs last night. Outside of LeBron, OKC is younger, faster and deeper. Russell Westbrook raised the bar again in his Game 1 presser with this tremendous shirt. (His shirts are starting to remind me of many of my vintage looks in high school.)

If you’ve missed Russell’s recent looks, Bleacher Report did a nice slideshow of his best shirts. A very sombre LeBron James and Dwyane Wade looked razor sharp as well, and you can check out their attire here.
