Fashion statements from The Players: How to wear pink on the golf course

Forget blending in. 2019 is all about standing out, and what better way to achieve this than with a bold colour like pink. Many people shy away from the shade because they think it’s hard to wear, but if you look at the golfing fashion highlights of 2018, many of them involved a pop of pink. Whatever you call it, either salmon, rose, blush or coral, there’s no denying that wearing pink is a challenge. If you’re up for the challenge, make sure you follow these style rules from the pros to avoid looking out of place on the green.

What better place to look for pink-spiration than the final day of the 2018 Players Championship. On this day, the players compete in an unofficial “pink out” to raise awareness for breast cancer charities. As a partner of The Donna Foundation, this offers the perfect opportunity for the players to show off their favourite pink threads. And it’s also the perfect opportunity for us to pick up some style tips. So, without further ado, here are six different ways to make pink work for you on the golf course in 2019.

The bold polo

Webb Simpson offered the perfect example of pink done right when he wore the FootJoy Stretch Pique golf shirt in berry. This bold choice was paired with a muted pair of khakis to avoid looking over the top. One thing that golfers should be aware of when choosing their shirt is the risk of creases. Since bright colours tend to accentuate creases, it’s important to reach for highly technical and anti-wrinkle fabrics if you are opting for a bold bright colour like this berry hue. Luckily for Simpson, he did just this and looked sharp for his victory.

The muted hues

Wearing pink doesn’t have to be a brash choice. If you’re not excited about making a brash statement, opt for a pale pink. At the 2018 PGA tour, we saw Xander Schauffele use this styling choice to create a sleek and professional look. Having an athletic build means that he can get away with more than most, but he certainly hit a hole in one with this fashion choice. If you’re planning to wear a light pink striped polo similar to Schauffele, pair it with a light grey pair of pants.

Verging on red

If you’re looking for a low-risk choice on the golf course, opt for a hue that could almost be considered red. Jordan Spieth tried this look at the 2018 PGA tour and the result was magnificent. His Under Armour UA Playoff golf shirt featured thick pink stripes which gave the shirt an almost pomegranate red look. However, if you look at the detailing around the collar and on the buttons, you’ll see a much brighter shade of blush. The safest colour to pair with pink is grey, and Spieth managed this with ease.

Preppy trousers

Perhaps the boldest look on the golf course is pink pants. These can range from baby pink to bright magenta. The only rule you need to follow is that you wear them with confidence. These pink PUMA golf pants are the perfect choice for summer and create an effortlessly preppy look. Choose a brighter colour if you don’t want people wondering if you accidentally washed your white trousers with your favourite red shirt.

Accessorise with pink

If you aren’t ready for a pink golf shirt then you probably aren’t ready for pink golf pants either. Not to worry, as there are ways to accessorise with pink accents. This look is modern and stylish without being too outlandish. If you play at a more conservative golf club and are worried about ruffling feathers, then this is the way to go. At the 2018 PGA tour, Bryson DeChambeau showed us how it is done with this PUMA Ignite Pwradapt Golf Shoes. These feature a distinctive pink heel and a pink logo. DeChambeau’s were also customised with the word “mom” and a bright pink heart. There’s no need to go this far, but we’re sure your mum will appreciate the thought.

Pink fail

Continuing with the pink trend and tributes to his mother, DeChambeau also toted a distinctive bright pink Cobra golf bag for the day. Similarly emblazoned with the “mom” motif, it was a nice sentiment, but not one that we would suggest you try to follow. With the selection of pink golf bags available, it’s going to be hard to pull it off without looking like you just picked up the wrong golf bag in the clubhouse. If you really want to try the pink trend on the golf course, you’re far better off with accents of pink rather than overhauling your core items in a shocking hue.

In summary, there are plenty of ways to wear pink on the golf course, and we expect it to be a very popular shade in 2019. Just make sure you wear it with intention, or you could end up looking like you accidentally turned your favourite white polo pink in the wash.

UMW Shadow Event Raises Campus Awareness Of Sexual Assault

“The event was impactful and enlightening.” – UMW student

“It’s taken me a while to come to terms with my situation and just going to the event was beneficial to me.” – UMW student

“I feel like we changed some lives last night.” – Speaker at event

‘The testimonials were very powerful.” – Alex Weathersby, RCASA

The University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, Virginia held its first ever Shadow Event on Tuesday, November 14. The event was put on by UMW’s Where is the Line?, a club dedicated to raising awareness for sexual assault and domestic violence as well as providing support to survivors and empowering people to restore the hope that was lost. The club is affiliated with the Fear2Freedom organization.

The Shadow Event was held in on campus Dodd Auditorium. 6 survivors were given the opportunity to share their stories anonymously. A large, back light projection screen was set up in the center of the stage and each speaker had a designated color light that illuminated their silhouette to the audience. There were 5 female speakers and 1 male at the November 14 event. Over 100 students from the small school were in attendance to show their support. Representatives from the local prevention and support organization, Rappahannock Council Against Sexual Assault (RCASA), were also in attendance to provide counseling to audience members who may have been triggered by the speeches. In addition to the 6 speakers, there were singers that performed a song every 2 speeches to allow audience members to recollect themselves and take a mental break. Tori Power of the school’s show choir group covered Sara Bareilles’ “Brave”, Ellé Antzoulatos, WITL’s marketing coordinator, sang Miley Cyrus’ “The Climb”, and Rachel Lynch, a dedicated member of WITL, sang an a Capella version of Jeff Buckley’s “Hallejuah”. The audience members were given a set of colored notecards and a pencil upon arrival and had the opportunity to write words of encouragement to each speaker. The notes have been screened by club members and will be given to each survivor who spoke to help with the healing process.

The event was a tremendous success and WITL has begun planning and preparation for this spring’s Celebration Event, an interactive event where students will put together after care kits for victims of sexual assault and domestic violence to receive upon intake into a shelter or at the beginning of a rape kit. To help fund for the event, the club has launched a T-Shirt sale. To support, click HERE
