Reactions to Ryan Moore’s golf-round apparel, especially from late
last season and the early stages of 2009, have been plentiful.
Some of you consider it outrageous.
Others say it is stylish and different, and fits Moore to a “T”.
Here is the lowdown. I spoke with his older brother, Jeremy, who
also happens to be one of the men in charge at Moore Sports Management,
which controls the Puyallup golfer’s on- and off-the-course activities.
Since Moore joined the PGA Tour full-time in 2006, he’s always had
an alternative look. That is one of the reasons Oakley pursued him, and
had him under contract until last season.
No longer under contract, Moore is experimenting with different
combinations and, confirmed by his brother, he is in the middle of
negotiations with a few apparel companies for a longer-term deal.
(Hint: One company might be the one whose brand of shoes Moore has adopted – Puma.).
