Sam Ryder’s Golf Pants: Round 4 at the Farmers Insurance Open
Sam Ryder’s pants (not his near flawless golf) created quite the buzz at this years Farmers Insurance Open. On the final day, Ryder, joined Rahm and Finau in the final group at Torrey Pines South with a 2 shot lead. Watching Ryder come to the first tee, we knew there would be a lot of buzz in the golf world surrounding his fashion choice.

Ryder wore a fitted light black crewneck sweater over a contrasting gray polo and a cranberry(?) colored, high ankle cuffed golf jogger pant. Its what was on the bottom that set the golf world in a frenzy. Golf pants with jogger style have become increasingly popular among younger demographics and style conscious golfers. Golf Jogger pants, like the ones Sam Ryder was wearing at the Farmers Insurance Open, offer a modern look with tapered leg, high ankle cut (typically worn with no-show socks) and cinched ankle. The feelings were certainly divided on platforms such as Twitter with CBS tweeting a fill in the blank on Ryders pants:
Ex-PGA Golfer, Phil Mickleson even took his hand to weigh in on Ryder’s fashion choice (only to be ripped by fellow Jogger guy Erik Van Rooyen):

The Tour doesn’t allow shorts but does allow this weeks leader to wear joggers with ankle socks? Showing 4 inches of ankle? I’m no fashion guy, never will be, but there are some things I won’t ever understand 🤷♂️
Sam Ryder’s Golf Pants
Ryder’s wore Golf Jogger Pants from a brand called Greyson and the style he wore at the ’23 Farmers Insurance Open was the Montauk Jogger in Hawkeye color. Described on their website as ‘a pure example of a sport and dress hybrid jogger’, they offer a cuffed ankle with short inseam. These $148 Joggers are a statement golf pant aimed at fashion forward golfers and younger demographics.

Golf Joggers in 2023: To Be or Not to Be?
As a Men’s Golf Wear Brand who designs and sells Modern Style Golf Apparel, including Golf Joggers, we are going to be a bit biased in our opinions. We loved Sam Ryder’s look this week at Torrey Pines. It was especially nice to see golf joggers thrust into the spotlight with Ryder being in the final ground in Round 4. Its obvious joggers on the golf course aren’t going to be for everyone – especially golf traditionalists. But, in 2023, as golf continues to grow and become more inclusive especially for younger demographics, the jogger trend is one we expect to see continue growing. We’re excited about new fashion trends in the sport and are thankful for Sam Ryder and others who continue to progress the look of golf.
