They take them home and throw them in the wash machine, then hang them up in the closet.

No, it's a good question - it seems like Tiger never wears the same shirt twice... What happens t all the shirts after he wears them?

What makes you think he doesn't wear the same shirt twice?

Even if that is the case, which I doubt (he wears clothes on days he doesn't golf too), I don't know that Tiger is representative of the average tour pro.

I imagine some clothes are donated, really doubt that they put on a brand new shirt and pair of pants every day of their lives......

I guess I could be wrong, but someone's gonna have to convince me.

I have seen numerous tour players wear the same shirt. Or at least, what appeared to me to be the EXACT same style and color of shirt. Some guys have the money to spend on new threads every day. Crazy to most of us, but some legitimately can afford that. Whether they do or don't... Can't say. Probably varies. As for what is done with the clothes.. I think obviously those who don't wear new stuff every week probably do exactly what I do with my golf clothes. Wash and re-wear them! As for the others, if they exist.. Probably thier stuff goes in one of three piles: 1) Hang up and possibly re-wear. 2) Donate for memorabilia/promotional purposes. (Far less of this on the PGA tour than the MLB, NFL, etc. I'm willing to bet) 3) TST FANBOY PANTY SNIFFER PILE. :p

You forget, I watch Tiger a lot... I would tuck him into bed and read him stories if he'd let me... That being said, I'm pretty sure he wears the pants several times, but the shirts look unique every week, atlleast to me. And of course Tiger isn't representative of the rest of the tour population.

I doubt that Tiger wears even the same pants twice and all of his outfits are planned out - below was the approved plan for the 2012 US Open.  I'm sure some guys just get 4 shirts a week and that's it, but for a guy like Tiger and Phil, I would guess that they get shipped 4 packs of outfits each week and if they need to add cold weather or rain gear, they just have stock stuff that they have with them.

I'm sure Nike doesn't want to see Tiger wearing a laundered shirt when he's on national television representing their brand.  I'd guess the top guys like Tiger, Phil, Rory, Rickie get new clothes shipped each tournament.  The used ones probably get donated to charity or given to corporate execs.

The real question is, do they get new golf shoes shipped in for every tournament?

hmmmm...I love getting new shoes, but they need to be broken in. I'm sure tiger doesn't risk getting a blister in the middle of a major, he probably breaks then in on his practice rounds or on the range or something...

I think it depends on the visibility and marketing behind the player. Despite all of them being walking billboards safe to assume some wear clothes more than once and others don't because their high powered endorser wants them to display as much of their product as possible. Some of those guys look pretty shoddy. I'm certain some of the logos I've seen are iron-on patches. Others are dressed to the nines week in and out.

    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      I'd be curious to see just what Jack said. I think "10 or 15" having a chance to win for typical PGA Tour events in any era is an exaggeration of the relative weakness of the fields. Even before there was a depth of talent in the U.S. and the 'golf craze' here took off, the money drew top level golfers from overseas who were following the better money available here in tournaments and pro positions. I accept there's been a general strengthening of fields as the expansion in prize money and the total population of competitive golfers (see chart below) have forced top golfers to have more preparation and polish, but I don't think there's really ever been a lack of generally elite level competition on the PGA tour or at the Majors since about the 20's or 30's. I think if the effect of a tiny number of truly top level competitors taking on a bunch of club pro relative 'dubs' was as strong as you seem to think that most of the top multiple Major winners would be golfers from the early days of the tour. But to me it looks pretty balanced across eras. I'll see if I can work up some actual numbers. By the 1920s there were likely about 1.5 million golfers (in the U.S. alone), which is a pretty healthy base from which to draw potential 'top talent'. Total participation in golf from when Jack started to when Tiger started roughly tripled. As far as rating 'achievement' you play in the era you play with the existing disadvantages and advantages. IMO, if Jack had grown up as a contemporary of Tiger with the same advantages of technology and swing instruction / coaching and the same disadvantages of a greater number of potential competitors that they would both have risen to elite levels and would have regularly been battling for Amateur and Major Championships. I don't think the potential ranges of human abilities / talent really change much in a few generations. Would I consider Tiger more competitively vetted, yes. Do I think that means his talent level and achievements were automatically greater than Jack's? No. I could see valuing Tiger's win total more than Jack's (and certainly Snead's with some 'iffy' events in the total) because of the relative talent base depth, but not sure that transfers as readily to the performance in Majors, particularly the Opens. I think it would have been amazing and exciting to be able to see them compete at their peaks rather than a boring foregone conclusion.

      I really like Hideki's takeaway... Nice smooth swing.

      Fowler is one the fastest on tour, anyone is going to look slower than usual playing alongside him.

      I mowed lawns when I was a kid. I don't think that quite counts. I delivered local "coupon newspapers" (the "Greensheets") when I was also a kid. That sucked, but I was paid something like nine cents per paper delivered. I hated it though. They weighed a lot, and I had to pick them up every Friday and deliver them for a few hours every Saturday morning. Year-round. I washed cars for a month (on weekends) at a local car dealership. I got to drive a Dodge Viper around the block. They didn't care that I was 15 and didn't have my driver's license yet… Yeah, I still don't know what they were thinking on that one. I had my learner's permit, but… so what? I was driving cars from the lot into the street and down to the washing bay half a block away, and then back up to the lot. I worked at the Erie Zoo (which ran the ice rink next door during the winter) for about a full year. I often ran the carousel. I still hate certain songs, particularly the ones we played during the annual Zoo Boo. "I put a spell on you…" makes me irrationally angry.  (Not really, but I still hate hearing the song.) That was an actual job, with a W2 or a W9 or whatever stuff you fill out. Concessions and rides and whatnot at the Erie Zoo. I'd like to think I was a good employee. I once even got a speeding ticket (the cops loved to sit, I'd later discover, at the base of a very large hill near the zoo) and still made it to work and punched in before my start time.
