Nike not letting Patrick Reed wear red on Sunday at Masters
Don’t expect to see Patrick Reed wearing his usual red shirt and black pants on Sunday at the Masters.
Reed told Golf Channel on Thursday that Nike issued a directive to its golfers to have them dressed in similar colors.
“They’re doing a new thing where all the players stay in the same kind of story line,” Reed said. “All the players will either be in dark blue or gray, grayish black today and yesterday and then all of us will be in the same color tomorrow and Saturday and Sunday.”
Reed, who signed with Nike in January, is expected to wear pink on Sunday when he will have a full day’s worth of exposure playing in the final pairing with Rory McIlroy. He will enter the final round as the leader through 54 holes, holding an excellent shot at claiming his first major.
There is no word on what color Tiger Woods will wear, though many expect him to be sporting his customary red on Sunday.
