Why Tiger Wears Red on Sunday

We all recognize the red shirt and black pants worn by Tiger Woods on the final round of a golf tournament. Now we know for sure why this may not just be his favorite outfit – but the psychological edge it could have given him is worth recognizing.

“The red shirt that Tiger Woods adorns on the final day of golf tournaments likely provides him with a confidence-boosting reminder of his alpha status in the golf world as it simultaneously reminds his competitors they are probably facing another long day.”

Quote by Dr. Andrew Elliott, researcher at Rochester University, on the results of a study of the color red, which is associated with power, passion and fertility in the animal kingdom.
