Golf Asia



The American team will be outfitted in Adidas uniforms when they tee it up Kasumigase­ki Country Club for the Tokyo Olympics. Artist Hiroko Takahashi helped with the apparel designs by drawing upon a well-known Japanese saying as inspiratio­n. The saying comes from Shingen Takeda, a pre-eminent Japanese warrior in the Sengoku period, where he inspired others to be “as fast as the wind, as quiet as the forest, as daring as fire, and immovable as the mountain.” Team USA’S scripting for each day will thus represent, wind, forest, fire and mountain. “I believe that golf is a unique sport in a sense that it’s an individual sport, but you can also play it with a team,” Takahashi said. “With that in mind, I designed the USA Golf uniforms with links of circles and lines, imagining the powers of individual­s coming together as one and spreading into infinite possibilit­ies.”
