Nike unveiled their players’ scripting for The 2013 Open Championship held July 18-21 at Muirfield Golf Links in Gullane, East Lothian, Scotland.
Twelve Nike Athletes will compete: Scott Brown, Oliver Fisher, Russell Henley, Scott Jamieson, Rory McIlroy, Francesco Molinari, Thorbjorn Olesen, Carl Pettersson, Charl Schwartzel, Kyle Stanley, Nick Watney and Tiger Woods. Every Nike athlete in the field will compete in new designs from head to toe that incorporate key technologies for every weather condition.
Throughout the tournament, Woods will wear the TW Ultra Polo in White ($95), the TW Saturated Color Polo in Light Armory Blue ($95), the TW Trajectory Polo in Black ($100), and the TW Stripe Polo in Hyper Red ($90). These polos are extremely lightweight and utilize a laser-perforated collar for increased ventilation to keep the athlete cool while also reducing overall weight. All four of these styles utilize the iconic posture performance chassis which has a kimono style back design to allow Woods an increased range of motion throughout his swing. Woods will finish his look with the new Nike TW’14 footwear.
