The Masters is like the Oscars of the golf world. Rather than a red carpet lined with media, shouting “Who are you wearing tonight?” the Master’s is a green carpet that stretches for 18 holes. Due to the enormity of eyes peering in on golf’s main stage, sponsors like Adidas and Ashworth carefully craft their player’s wardrobes each day of the tournament.
