What is the Northern Irishman wearing on Tour in 2021?

What Is Rory McIlroy Wearing?

After having used Oakley apparel at the start of his career, Rory McIlroy (opens in new tab) eventually signed with Nike in 2013 and continues to wear the brands shoes and apparel despite the fact they do not make golf clubs anymore.

It was reported that Rory was getting paid around $20 million per year at the time, and then he resigned with Nike again in 2017 in what we believe was a ten-year contract.

Check out what he’s wearing in 2021 and at the US Open (opens in new tab) below.

What Is Rory McIlroy Wearing?

Nike Rors Polo

Rory showed up to Kiawah Island in a new Nike polo which stands out as a design for him thanks to the St Bernard dog patch on the chest. Rory uses a St Bernard headcover.

Nike Dri-FIT Player Printed Polo

This week it appears Rory is wearing four bespoke designs underneath the Nike Dri-FIT Player umbrella. We believe two of them are the Nike Dri-FIT Player Printed polo with the all over print design. What makes them bespoke to Rory appears to be the Nike swoosh on the chest which is absent from the model available to the public. We think he will wear a purple polo as well as a black model.

Nike Dri-FIT Player Color Block Polo

The other two designs are also part of the Player line but have a color block finish. Both the polos have Dri-FIT technology at the core of the construction which helps Rory stay dry and comfortable, and the Player moniker adds a couple of premium details like the pearlised buttons and soft feel. We believe he will wear a purple and black design on one of the days.

Nike Flex Golf Trousers

During the week we believe Rory will wear Nike Flex trousers. They provide a good amount of stretch thanks to the Flex fabric and the slightly tacky texture on the inner waistband keeps the shirt tucked in nicely.

Nike Air Zoom Victory Tour 2 NRG Golf Shoes

In the lead-up to The Masters Nike unveiled three new designs of popular golf shoes, one of which was the Victory Tour 2. Since then Nike has introduced several special edition colours including designs for the Masters and PGA Championship.

Nike has also introduced a US Open edition which pays homage to the sunsets which regularly take place off the coast of Torrey Pines.

Nike Air Zoom Victory Tour 2 Golf Shoes

If Rory is not wearing the special NRG edition design above, he will then wear the normal Victory Tour 2 shoes.

Nike Repel Camo Anorak

During his media work earlier in the week Rory was wearing this camo anorak with a distinctive aesthetic. Nike’s Repel NCG jacket is designed with a low-profile hood to protect your head. It is also constructed with repel fabrication, offering a water repellent finish to help you stay dry.

Additionally, when the weather clears, the jacket transforms into a small pouch that easily attaches to a bag

Nike Legacy91 Cap

Rory will wear two different colours of the Legacy91 Cap throughout the week too.

Nike Stretch Woven Belt

Best Golf Belts

The Nike Stretch Woven Men’s Golf Belt is incredibly stretchy for a comfortable fit on the course. It makes sense Rory uses it in various colour iterations then.

Special Edition Whoop Strap

Both Rory and Justin Thomas (opens in new tab) wear exclusive Whoop bands too. They were wearing special edition versions at Augusta so we could see another version this week in California.

Nike Tour Classic 3 Glove

It looks like Rory will also opt for a Players only version of the Tour Classic 3 glove as well.

A golfer for most of his life, Sam started playing the game to prove he was the best player out of his father and two brothers.
He quickly became a golf equipment expert and has always been the one family and friends come to for buying advice, and spends a lot of his time putting golf gear, apparel and shoes to the test.  
He is a graduate of Swansea University where he studied History and American Studies, and he has been a part of the Golf Monthly team since February 2018. He also previously worked for World Soccer and Rugby World magazines.

A jack of all trades across print and digital formats, Sam now spends most of his time testing and looking after golf gear content for the website. He also oversees all Tour player content as well. 

Unfortunately, Sam is not a member of any club at the moment but regularly gets out on the golf course to keep up the facade of having a handicap of five. 

Sam is currently playing:
Driver: Titleist TS3
