ATLANTA — Last week was one for the books for Tiger Woods. He became a dad when wife, Elin, gave birth to their first child, daughter Sam Alexis; he placed second, tying with Jim Furyk, in a close finish behind winner Angel Cabrera at the U.S. Open on Father’s Day; and he started a fashion buzz by wearing a Nike Golf slim-fitting, mock turtleneck—red, of course—on the final day of the Open.
In a world where professional golfers wear the traditional, polo-style, collared golf shirt, Woods stood out. However, he’s not the first to wear a mock turtle at a major tournament. He wears them occasionally, including the Sunday he won the 2005 Masters. According to Andy Pazder, senior vice-president, tournament administration, PGA Tour, David Duval was the first player six or seven years ago to wear a short-sleeved mock turtleneck top. “We thought it looked very professional,” Pazder said.
