FORE PLAY: Wives and girlfriends of British soccer players — also known as WAGS — are so legendary for their shopping habits that there’s a whole television show based around them. Stateside, it seems professional golfers and their wives aren’t far behind — at least not this week.

The Barclays golf tournament, which is taking place for the first time at the Liberty National Golf Club in Jersey City, N.J., from Aug. 25 to 30, has a few style perks this year for players and their wives. On Tuesday, Bobbi Brown hosted makeovers at her Montclair, N.J., studio. Today, David Yurman will offer a private tour of his TriBeCa studio and a private shopping event at his Madison Avenue store, while Diane von Furstenberg is hosting a special shopping event at her flagship, and Brian Reyes will have a few of the wives over to his studio for some cocktails and fashion styling tips. On Thursday, Vera Wang will host a lunch for the group at the Mercer Kitchen. The designers will help golfers and their wives dress better, but will they in turn get some tips on lowering their handicaps?
