From the Tiger Woods “Frank” golf shirt to Brooks Koepka’s Brinks Truck-inspired look, the Nike Golf Polo has been a tool for the brand to release commemorative logos around major golf events. Products have become collectors’ items for golf fans who can click fast enough to purchase before the limited-edition pieces sell out.

To celebrate Woods ahead of the U.S. Open, Nike is releasing a throwback logo that you may recognize from Woods’ original product line with Nike. The Yin Yang-inspired logo was originally released in 1997 along with Woods’ namesake apparel and accessory collection.

The red and black color scheme is a nod to his iconic Sunday red golf attire with arrows pointing east and west to honor Woods’ heritage. Woods’ helped develop the logo, feeling a strong connection to the meaning behind the Yin Yang that represents the union of opposing forces. Nike cites Woods’ balance of physical and mental gamesmanship and focused-yet-passionate style of play further supporting the Yin Yang motif.

The Tiger Slam Polo will be available September 15 only to those with a Nike Membership (free to enroll) and will retail at $72.

Evidence of the original 1990s apparel collection is sparse, but we did manage to find exactly one shirt floating around on Ebay.
