What happens to the clothes tour players wear in a tournament
post #2 of 13

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

Do they starch the collars Xstiff?

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.
