If Augusta National is anything, it is a visual tour de force.

The course is a living painting, beautiful as it is challenging. It’s hard to outdo Amen Corner on an aesthetic level, but if there’s any crew that can come close, it’s the field at the Masters.

2014 promises to be one of the wildest years in terms of golf fashion, and in this spirit, Jamie Kennedy of has rolled out a piece showing fans the day-by-day attire schedule for some of their favorite golfers. 

First off, we have Rory McIlroy’s Nike attire. He’s not exactly going for broke fashion-wise this year, instead opting to wear grays on grays on grays.

On the opposite end of spectrum rests Rickie Fowler, who, predictably, has chosen to continue testing fans’ high-def televisions with his gear.

Fowler will face some stiff competition, however. American pro Billy Horschel has a lineup of pants for the Masters that would make an Ole Miss fraternity president blush.

Swedish pro Jonas Blixt will be leading off the first group of pros on Thursday. He’ll be rocking a Puma graphic stripe polo. I call it “nouveau Charlie Brown.”

This is just a taste of the wild color schemes and patterns we’ll see over the next four days. The Masters is is a flagship tournament, and every sports apparel company in the business will unfurl their craziest designs.

The only thing more certain than crazy outfits at Augusta is the knowledge that we’ll all be broke buying visors and polos by the end of the weekend. It’s just an unavoidable part of the game.
