Nike to keep golfers dry at The Open

Nike Golf athletes will stay protected at this year’s Open Championship with new styles for fall featuring wool and engineered knit fabrics.

Tiger Woods will compete in his first major championship of the season in apparel from the Nike Golf Tiger Woods Collection.  The three-time Open Champion will be wearing the TW Engineered Sweater with 3D engineered-knit sleeves developed with Woods’ insights. His insights inspired the same sleeve design in the 3D V-Neck Sweater.

“Our athletes will be prepared for every possible weather condition at Royal Liverpool,” says Merritt Richardson, VP of Global Golf Apparel and Footwear. “Every piece of apparel – from polos to sweaters to cover-ups – is made for easy layering and built to move with the athlete’s body. We’ve armed our athletes with some of Nike Golf’s newest and most innovative pieces from the Fall 2014 collection to keep them warm and comfortable no matter what each round brings.”

Twelve Nike Golf athletes will compete at the 2014 Open Championship: Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Paul Casey, David Duval, Oliver Fisher, Ross Fisher, Tommy Fleetwood, Russell Henley, Francesco Molinari, Thorbjorn Olesen, Charl Schwartzel and Nick Watney.
