CARLSBAD, Calif. – (March 27, 2018) – The polo is the staple of golf attire known around the globe. For golfers everywhere, it needs to be just as functional as it is stylish. Today, adidas Golf announced the polos to be worn by the world’s top players – defending champion Sergio Garcia, world No. 1 Dustin Johnson and world No. 3 Jon Rahm – who will be making their way around the course in Augusta next week in search of a win at the year’s first major. The brand have scripted all three of their top athletes in a green, navy and white story for 2018 – thus paying homage to the colors of the Masters with a stylish twist.
Throughout the rounds next week, all players will be wearing adidas’ newly launched Ultimate365 Polo, which was designed after gathering feedback and insights from golfers all over the world. Engineered to have the right amount of breathability, stretch, drape and weight, along with moisture management and material that offers the wearer UPF 50+ protection from the sun, it provides golfers with everything they need and nothing they don’t. It’s the most consistent fitting polo adidas Golf has ever made.
SERGIO GARCIA MASTERS SCRIPTS
Sergio Garcia finally won his first major title at the 74th time of asking last year and marked the start of a wonderful year for the Spaniard. He recently became a father to Azalea, named after the 13th hole at Augusta, while his golf game itself seems to have really benefited from the boost in confidence.
The reigning Masters champion will be looking to pick up right where he left off at the end of the 2017 tournament. To give him the performance he needs on the course, Sergio will be wearing the Ultimate365 Polo along with the 3-Stripes Pique Polo throughout the tournament. The 3-Stripes Pique will provide some variety for Sergio, offering a soft and lightweight fabric that also touts moisture wicking technology and UPF 50+ sun protection.

JON RAHM MASTER SCRIPTS
Making his second appearance at the tournament, world No. 3 Jon Rahm is anxious to follow up on his win at the CareerBuilder Challenge earlier in the season.

He will be dialed-in from a polo standpoint to help him perform his best at the season opener. In addition to the Ultimate365 Polo, Jon will also be looking to the 3-Stripes Polo for its lightweight fabric and the climacool Jacquard Raglan Polo’s zonal ventilation to keep him comfortable when he swings throughout the round.
