    Is it Green Jacket or green jacket?

    I'd go lower case.
  3. I'd say

    "Putting on the Green Jacket."
    as he put the green jacket, blah blah blah

    small change, but makes sense in my head...

    Not that it matters much today, but to me, it's always green jacket.

    When on the fence, err on the side of lowercase. Same as when "hyphen or no hyphen," err on the side of no hyphen.

    Less is better.

    Amen, SF. See a lot of unnecessary capitals lately. I don't even like NCAA tournament capitalized; the formal (capitalized) name isn't the NCAA Tournament, it's the NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Championship.

    Unfortunately, TF, you catch me on this one. Our style on all tournaments -- NCAA Tournament, SEC Tournament, etc. -- is uppercase T. A bit of a pain with AP copy, but that's what we decided.

    Sorry - I thought this was about the shirt that Jacobs wore. It did not go well with the jacket. He should have planned his outfit better for final round. He must not have envisioned himself winning.

    Our style is uppercase T ... on the NCAA Tournament only.
