Horschel collabs with Ralph Lauren in new apparel line

Billy Horschel is launching his own line of apparel with Ralph Lauren, in what will be the brand’s first collaboration ever.

The 2014 FedEx Cup champion, 31, is known to wear some loud outfits on the course, and this playful nature is evident in the new range.

He will showcase the work at the 2018 PGA Championship.

“When I think about the people who have worn Ralph Lauren, whether it's golf or regular fashion — from actors, athletes, celebrities, anybody — to be the first one out of all those people to collaborate with Ralph Lauren...it's humbling," he said.

"When they called me last summer to talk about this, I was shocked. I was speechless, and that doesn't happen very often. It's been a truly awesome experience to have a line with my name and logo on it next to Ralph's."

"Every one of these pieces really does show a little bit of me, from the bold to the conservative. I want every piece of the look to flow. I either have a really loud shirt with a more neutral bottom, or vice versa, to soften the look overall. I like one thing to really stand out, whether it's the pants of the top."

Horschel received ridicule when he wore a pair of “octopus trousers” on Tour, and he nods at the outfit in a new pair of shorts.

"The octopus pants are what made me...infamous," Horschel said. "That's what put me on the face of golf fashion back in 2013. This is a new, updated version of it."
