Last week's WGC-Bridgestone Invitational winner, Adam Scott, wore an unusual two-pocket golf shirt made by Aquascutum Sunday. The two snap pockets were on the right, stacked, one above the other like cargo pants pockets, giving them a bit of a youth-culture twist.

What does Scott put in there¬ógum, ball markers, mints? It's a unique style we haven't seen before, but we'll be watching for it again this weekend at the PGA Championship.

Extra Dry
Like something out of Ernest Shackleton's valiant voyage, FootJoy's new rain gear is being touted as "the ultimate all-weather performance outerwear garment."

Introduced this week, the DryJoys Premiere Rain Suit features a proprietary waterproof system that, according to the company, instantly beads water and repels it while still providing good breathability. For additional comfort and versatility, the jacket has removable sleeves, the pants have removable lower leg panels, and the fabric contains four-way stretch nylon.

If the sun breaks out or the wind picks up, three interchangeable layers or liners enable the player to adapt the suit to changing conditions. The jacket even has a waterproof scorecard pocket and a system for keeping your club's grip dry.

"The Premiere Rainsuit is designed for players who put themselves and their equipment to the ultimate test, under variable, often extreme conditions, " said Whitney Trimble, director of marketing at FootJoy Apparel.

Suitable for conditions in Tierra del Fuego, the DryJoys Premiere jacket has a suggested retail price of $700 with the trousers retailing for $300.
