2015 HSBC Championship - Abu Dhabi Style Review

2015 HSBC Championship - Abu Dhabi Style Review

The big names are making their first appearance of 2015 at the HSBC Championship in Abu Dhabi and we take a look at some of the key looks from the week so far!

Rory McIlroy


Rory McIlroy has started as he means to go on this season with a real statement of intent - currently sitting in third place just two strokes off the lead. Check out his first ever career hole in one in Abu Dhabi below!

Rickie Fowler


All eyes were fixed upon Rickie Fowler's group on day one with the tasty Fowler/McIlroy rivalry rejuvenated for 2015. Wearing the brand new Puma range which is set to arrive online very soon, Rickie matched the world number one but soon fell away on day two with a disappointing (+3) - narrowly avoiding a first missed cut of the year.


Lunar Control 3 vs Titan Tour


The Rory McIlroy vs Rickie Fowler rivalry will be one of the key talking points of the season ahead and the comparisons have already started with the recent launch of the Nike Lunar Control III up against the signature new shoe from Puma, the Titan Tour. It's a tough one to call!

Martin Kaymer


Martin Kaymer leads the way at the halfway stage in Abu Dhabi and is beginning to prove that last season was no one-off. He certainly appears to love the course for the HSBC Championship and is the man to beat this weekend!


Henrik Stenson


Henrik Stenson endured a dreadful start to his 2015 campaign with a first round of four above par, with the damage significant enough to enforce a missed cut (despite a four-under round today). Henrik wears the Pre-Spring Hugo Boss range which can now exclusively be found on sale here at Golfposer.

Mikko Ilonen


Mikko Ilonen is another Hugo Boss Tour pro who had a stellar last season and a run of five birdies in a row helped him achieve a first round of 66 - just two shots off the lead. Not so good today for the Finn, however, +3 for the day sees Mikko tumble down the leaderboard.

Matteo Manassero


Matteo Manassero has some great styling with his RLX Ralph Lauren clothing and this classic number looked the part on Thursday. 'True Sapphire' is the new colour name for 2015 and you can now find the entire RLX golf collection online.

Soren Kjeldsen


Soren Kjeldsen also gave us a sneak preview of the Puma SS15 collection; this shirt is an alternative colour to Rickie's look during the practice day and is called the 'Roadmap' - one to look out for this season. Unfortunately, we won't be seeing any more from the collection with Soren this weekend (+4, tied 114th).

Alex Noren


And finally, the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship is the first tournament back for Alex Noren; the Boss star has not been playing since the BMW PGA last year due to tendonitis in both wrists. Now, the popular Swede is back and looks like he is already finding his form with an opening round of 67!
