Brooks Koepka teed off in the first round of the 2021 Tour Championship earlier today. And this year, the American golfer was rocking a new look.
Koepka, a Nike sponsored athlete, rolled up to up to East Lake Golf Course wearing a short-sleeved mock turtleneck. The shirt was recently dropped in a collaboration with music icon Drake called “Nocta.”
The PGA Tour and fans around the golf world took notice.
“Turtleneck to kick off the TOUR Championship,” the PGA wrote alongside a photo of Koepka.

This unique outfit has resulted in a mixed bag of reactions from the golf world. Some hated the unorthodox look, while others respected the style.
Mostly though, fans felt this look belongs to one golfer and one golfer only: Tiger Woods.
During his prime years, Tiger would rock the classic red short-sleeved turtle neck along with black pants for final-round Sundays.
Only one that could ever pull this off wore it on Sunday’s, and it was red. What is this look 🤣 https://t.co/ubMP54RD0R

Starting the day at 2-under par with the No. 20 position in the FedEx Cup standings, Koepka is now 3-under through 10 holes on the day and 5-under for the tournament.
Patrick Cantlay, who started the day at 10-under with first place position in the standings, currently leads the way at 11-under through four.
