We’re all about golfers pushing style boundaries to look less like, well, golfers. But the Mizzen+Main button-down dress shirt Phil Mickelson is wearing during Tuesday’s practice round with Tiger Woods (and Fred Couples and Thomas Pieters) pushes boundaries in a questionable direction.
An ill-fitting gingham shirt screams, “I trade stocks on Wall Street from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.,” far louder than, “I’m teeing it up at Augusta National on a humid, 90-degree day.” Phil’s Mizzen+Main Kennedy button-down, which is plastered with a “Workday” logo and doesn’t fit quite right, is generating plenty of chatter.
Some notable comments from our Instagram post above:
@johnc14: Phil going to work at KMPG after the round?
@doraziojohn: When you have to play a practice round with Tiger at 9 but you have work at 10
@mr_jayking83: Phil just left the office to catch a quick 9 😂😂
@jordanshanks26: All I see is Tiger and an insurance broker
@trevorottman: Phil out here reminding me to ask off for my vacation in June. Thanks bro!
And, lastly, my favorite comment, from @andrewwoodhamgolf: Phil is a genius because him wearing that shirt has taken all the focus off of who he playing with! Everyone is concerned with the shirt.
Touche, Andrew. Touche.
Even Tiger had something to say about Phil’s shirt.
For what it’s worth, Mizzen+Main specializes in creating comfortable, performance-driven dress shirts. The shirts, which are made with a blend of 85 percent polyester and 15 percent spandex, are designed to breathe, stretch, and wick away moisture, whether you’re sitting behind a computer screen or competing on golf’s biggest stage.
