Nike Makes Unique Sneakers, Jackets for Masters Staff Players
AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Nike has several golfers in the field this week at the Masters. And each of them received some very unique gifts from the company on the eve of the tournament, including a green-and-yellow pair of Nike sneakers. Each player's first name was stitched on the back of the left shoe, and the last name was on the right. Below is a photo of the shoes given to Francesco Molinari.
But wait, there's more. Several players were also given a green track jacket with their name embroidered on the front. However, as past champions, Trevor Immelman and Tiger Woods were given white jackets. Above Immelman's name was a single star to symbolize his 2008 victory; there were four stars placed above Tiger's name to represent each of his wins.
Inside, discreetly screened into the back of each jacket, is an image of the famous oak tree that stands behind the clubhouse at Augusta National.
