The Tiger Collar

Lately Woods has a wear of wearing a polo shirt and crewneck sweater with great panache. Tiger lets the collar ride high in the back while tucked in the front, giving it the appearance of being draped around his neck, scarf-like.

Whether accidental or deliberate, Tiger shows that this tap-in-putt detail contains a monster drive of style.
