Rory McIlroy and Nike to Go Green and Yellow at US PGA

Rory McIlroy and Nike to Go Green and Yellow at US PGA

Rory McIlroy and his fellow Nike golfers will go green and yellow at the US PGA Championship at Baltusrol this week.

Golf’s final major of the season kicks off on Thursday in Springfield, New Jersey, and Nike will be hoping their star men can make a challenge for glory.

They were unable to do so at The Open at Royal Troon, with Henrik Stenson pipping fellow Callaway athlete Phil Mickelson to the Claret Jug.

Not that it was a bad week of golf for McIlroy – the Northern Irishman ended the weekend tied for fifth, shooting four under.

Now he’ll have his sights set on his third US PGA Championship after victories at the event in 2012 and 2014.

But what will he be wearing across all four days at the final major before the Ryder Cup in September? Well, we’ve got you covered.

McIlroy will tee off on Thursday wearing Nike Classic 99 hat, Nike MM Fly Swing Knit Stripe Alpha polo in midnight turquoise, Nike Modern Tech Woven pant, Nike Lunar Control 4, Nike RZN Tour Platinum ball:

If he manages to take the title, he’ll do it wearing the volt colour polo with Sunday’s costume change:

There are obviously more Nike athletes competing this week, with Brooks Koepka, Paul Casey, Kevin Chappell, Tony Finau, Thorbjorn Olesen, Francesco Molinari, Patrick Rodgers, Russell Henley, Jamie Lovemark, Ross Fisher and Jhonattan Vegas all keen to put in a strong performance.

You can see the rest of their attire here.
