On the heel tab, a yellow likeness of US with a red star on Augusta, Georgia, where the one of the 4 major golf championships, The Masters, takes place. It was the first major championship Woods won in 1997, just a year after he turned professional. As tradition, winner of Masters Tournament receive a green sports jacket. A similarity could also be found on the Nike Blazer Mid's tongue, with exception that it is now a green Windrunner instead.
