Even if Rory McIlroy doesn't win the green jacket, you can't argue that he doesn't have style.

The 26-year-old has already set social media aflutter with his custom Masters green golf balls, and will expand his trove of personalized gear with a new hat and new kicks -- both dedicated to fellow Nike athlete Kobe Bryant.

The Lakers star plays his final game on April 13th, the date emblazoned on McIlroy's shoes.

It's a nice nod to the basketball legend from McIlroy, who himself seeks to make history this week by winning the Masters and the career grand slam simultaneously.
