A look at the four Nike outfits worn by Rory McIlroy during the 2021 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines’ South Course. The 32-year old posted a top-10 finish at the season’s third major, and his scripting style was about the same: not great but a solid B+.

Round 1: A+

Rory appears much less stocky in light clothes, and this collection was his best look.

Shirt: Nike Dri-Fit Player Color Block Golf Polo (White/Photon Dust)
Pants: Nike Chino Golf Pants (Parachute Beige)
Hat: Nike H86 Player Golf Hat (Sail/Black)


Round 2: B+

Rory is judged in the aggregate here. He gets a A with the pullover covering his ugly printed polo, and a C- without it.

Round 3: C

Boring and blah was Rory’s Saturday style. The purple/blue and white blocked polo with obsidian blue pants is a poor color mix for the Northern Irishman’s body style.

Round 4: B

The color mix gets an A for effort but that printed polo is just plain ugly, no matter the color. So it’s a B.
