Established Brands, New Contenders & The Changing Landscape of the Apparel World in Golf

Golf is a sport that has a unique culture of apparel. Unlike other sports, players of golf do not have a designated uniform. Instead, they have endorsement deals that bind them to wear a specific brand. This arrangement gives players the freedom to choose the colors and designs they prefer. As a result, there are very few golfers who are known for specific apparel styles. However, the recent switch of Jason Day to Malbon has caused a stir in the golf world and the apparel industry. Tiger Woods, who is currently a free agent after parting ways with Nike, has plans to introduce his own apparel line, with his trademark "Sunday Red" being a strong indication of this. Even without uniforms, Tiger Woods' red polo is one of the most recognizable apparel styles in all of sports.

Payne Stewart, one of the best golfers to ever play the sport, was known for his unique sense of style, characterized by his signature "Scally Cap" or flat cap. His distinctive look has become iconic in the sport, with players wearing the same cap in tournaments as a tribute to his legacy. In addition to Payne Stewart, there is another golfer recognized for his distinguished style, Tiger Woods. Woods has recently ended his longstanding partnership with Nike, the apparel brand he has been associated with for over 25 years. This has left the golf industry in anticipation of Tiger's future sponsor, with many companies vying for his endorsement. It is expected that Tiger will reveal his new sponsor during the Genesis Invitational in mid-February, generating much excitement and speculation in the golf community. Tiger's first tournament of 2024 will be the Genesis Invitational in mid-February as the anticipated debut spot of the new brand.

            While the logo on the shirt will change, Tiger has worn his “Sunday Red” since early on in his career, which has become golf’s most distinct and recognizable look. Spectators, Fans, Podcasters and many others who love Tiger sport his classic red to show their sport of one of golf’ best to ever do it. This outpouring support of Tiger Woods reaffirms the fact the importance of whichever brand he chose to produce “Sunday Red” with. At the moment, TaylorMade is the frontrunner as it was announced on social media that TaylorMade filed the trademark for the new lifestyle brand, “Sunday Red.”
