Sergio Garcia’s LIV Golf team uniforms are horrible; needs new apparel after U.S. Open

Sergio Garcia has had an impressive week at the U.S. Open. He opened the championship with a 1-under 69, then carded a pair of 1-over 71s to make the cut and remain in the mix throughout the weekend.

But what Garcia has worn this week has been a sight to behold. Garcia captains Fireballs GC, the LIV Golf team that employs Mexican Abraham Ancer and fellow Spaniards Eugenio Chacarra and David Puig. As such, he wore his team uniforms throughout the championship at Pinehurst No. 2.

Players can wear whatever they want or whatever their apparel sponsor chooses.

But if there is one takeaway from Garcia’s performance this week, it is that his Fireballs GC needs new uniforms.

On Thursday, Garcia repped a bright red shirt and a white hat with his team’s logo plastered on his chest and cap.

His first-round wardrobe was not terrible, at least relative to what he wore on the subsequent days. But it most certainly popped out. He had a similar outfit for Sunday’s final round, too.

Yet, his first and final round fits paled in comparison to what he wore on Friday. Garcia pulled out a pair of bright red slacks, a color similar to the shirt he donned on Thursday. He matched that with a white shirt and white hat, which featured the Fireballs GC logo.

Then, on Saturday, Garcia ditched the red altogether and decided to go with another color.

He wore a bright yellow shirt, coupled with a pair of white pants. He went with a black cap to round out his look.

Of course, Garcia’s yellow shirt immediately brought back memories of yesteryear, when he wore yellow during the final round of the 2006 Open Championship. He tied for fifth that year, as Tiger Woods went on to win at Royal Liverpool. Garcia then lost to Padraig Harrington in a playoff at Carnoustie one year later.

He will not get that close this year at Pinehurst No. 2, but he still had a respectable performance this week. Garcia made it into the field as a first alternate, thanks to his strong play in final qualifying.

This week also marked his 24th straight U.S. Open appearance, an impressive feat for the 2017 Masters champion. But his wardrobe has been anything but that, as his Fireballs GC squad should get new uniforms, perhaps in time for The Open Championship.
