We have been asked what to wear to a golf tournament, in particular, this weekend’s 2010 Ryder Cup Golf Tournament in Newport, Wales. Held at the Celtic Manor Resort, the Ryder Cup officially began in 1927 as a competition for professional golfers from United States and Great Britain. In 1979, the Cup was opened to include pros from across Europe. This weekend Team USA tees off against Team Europe in one the most popular and competitive sporting events in the world.

If you are traveling across the pond, you had better dress for it! On checking the weather, we found a wet and chilly forecast. What to wear to keep you dry and comfortable? We chose this layered outfit that will bring you from the links on chilly fall mornings and warm up as you go along during the golf tournament. You will fit right in with the traditional flat cap and Hunter Wellies, and we love the autumnal hues of Ralph Lauren’s vest and a splash of orange from Hermes.
