While the majors might look a little different this year, there is one thing we can count on—Brooks Koepka showing up with a unique golf hat that generates some chatter. The four-time major winner is not afraid to debut a trend on the golf course–as demonstrated by the looks he owned during the 2019 major season. To kick off the first major of the year, Koepka sported a light blue Nike golf hat on with an ultra-unique abstract print on Thursday at TPC Harding Park.
The Nike AeroBill Classic 99 golf hat features an artsy blue-and-white print that the company says was inspired by the all-too-common fog seen at the San Francisco muny. The cloud-like cap comes in light or dark blue and finished with a bright neon Nike swoosh.
Tony Finau wore a similar look during the first round debuting a new Nike Polo ($75)—though the print on his shirt would be considered more tie-dye than abstract art. The Nike Polo was designed as a simple staple for the brand to remix in limited-edition capsules. Another version was released earlier this week featuring a logo inspired by one of Koepka’s tweets.
Expect to see more tie-dye looks at Harding park as many designers were inspired by the history of counterculture in the area and the rainbow patterns that came to represent the free-spirited movement.
