It's not only the course that is colourfully resplendent at Augusta, but quite often the players and patrons too, as all these great Masters outfits prove
Bernhard Langer, 1985 champion
There's only one place to kick off our Great Masters Outfits, and this one still grates whenever you see it. We can only assume that Langer hadn’t been anticipating victory, for the only place red and green should ever be seen is on a Christmas tree or snooker table.
Shingo likes to do things his own way, so whenever he’s in town you can be sure of a bit of sartorial individuality. This fancy hat was from 2005.
Jumbo gave us plenty of options to choose from in a diverse collection of singularly individual style, but in the end we plumped for 1998’s garish red sweater.
The 2011 Open champion hasn’t shied away from a bit of colour and style over the years, unveiling this eye-catching pink ensemble to the world during 2005’s second round.
The Shark has been ‘hit and miss’ with fashion over the years, but few would dispute that 1995’s Saturday shirt was among the ‘misses’.
Nick Faldo, 1996 champion
Norman must have been sick of the sight of this shirt, but Pringle’s sales of this stripy number went through the roof following Faldo’s dramatic victory in 1996.
Never one to knowingly underdress, we’re a little concerned that Poulter’s 2007 third-round trousers strayed worryingly close to shell-suit status.
UPDATE: Poulter wasn't happy with our choice:
Little did John Daly know what he was starting when he first donned his Loudmouth trousers. This trio of patrons was spotted out and about during 2012’s Masters.
This patron wore his badges with pride in 2014, every one conveying the message loud and clear: “I was there when…”
If you can tell the age of a tree by its rings, then maybe you can work out the age of this Masters’ patron by the number of tags. Pretty old, we’d guess!
