US Open Golf 2012: What Tiger Woods and Top Golfers Are Wearing

Prior to the Masters Tournament this year, I met with Nike Golf's Global Business Director of Apparel and Footwear, Doug Reed, to discuss the process the company uses in determining what their athletes wear during the major championships each year.

Obviously, Tiger Woods carries a lot of weight in the conversation when it comes to Nike Golf's roster, but the process is primarily the same for all their players. Reed and his admittedly obsessed team of self-proclaimed equipment managers meet with the athletes once or twice a year to determine scripted outfits, which are presented to each player on paper and coordinated with their head wear, shoes and belt for approval.

Once everything is agreed upon, the clothing is bagged and given to the players to make sure they are pleased with all aspects of the outfit—the look, the style and the color—to get themselves comfortably coordinated from head to toe.

As is the case with any professional sports team's uniforms, it's always fun to survey the chosen look prior to seeing it in action.

Here's what Tiger Woods and others will be wearing at this year's US Open.
