Jason Day wears Jordan 1s and joggers at The Open… THE OPEN!

Published

on

Listen, I’m all for being progressive with fashion in golf. I get the push to make golf wear more relaxed, and I applaud the efforts to attract more youth golfers; “Make golf cool again,” and all that. I comprehend what’s going on.

But it’s The Open Championship! In my opinion, it’s not the appropriate event to bust out the all-white, high-top Jordan 1 golf shoes and joggers, as Jason Day did in round 1 of the Open Championship at Royal Birkdale this morning.

According to Golf History Today, the first ever Open Championship was held in 1860 at Prestwick in Aryshire, Scotland. It was won by Willie Park Sr., who beat out Old Tom Morris by two shots. This was the scene at that year’s event.

The Open Championship has the richest history of any golf tournament in existence. You know: Old Tom Morris, Young Tom Morris, the Old Course at St. Andrews, the Claret Jug!

Am I saying every Open participant needs to wear a cardigan with a tie as Justin Thomas did in round 1?

Screen Shot 2017-07-20 at 10.38.20 AMNo, I’m not saying that. But even the loudest, most progressive dresser on Tour, Rickie Fowler, is dialing it back a bit for the week.

I say we save the Jordans for normal Tour events in America, and embrace, or at least respect, the Open’s rich history while across the pond.

What do you think about Jason Day’s round-1 Open look?

    Must think he’s 16 yrs old . Don’t get it at all. But to each his own and more than likely makes millions in contract money to wear the stuff . But please not at the open. At least he had on flood pants in case it rained to hard.

    You have golfers breaking the rules and not being penalized, they are playing in cold rainy and windy conditions which no golfer should have to, but it’s the ” open ” and your in an up roar because someone wears high top shoes? Wow unbelievable.

    I don’t like the look. He looked uncomfortable in that outfit. I think Phil Mickelson always looks sloppy.

    Any golfer that wears the stupid looking ankle pants, I have to root against. Too bad, I like Day and Fowler, and even Rory when he tried it. It’s just too feminine.

    There’s a time and a place for everything, and I feel JD got it wrong this time. I also can’t help thinking that he didn’t feel comfortable in his outfit yesterday.

    Didn’t he know this is a 146 year old tournament? Where equipment had changed, rules changed but you HAVE to stick to dress codes? Hahaha.

    Took out those perssimon sticks and ballatas. No, dial it back to whatever they used on the 1st open.

    I love how people say he looks like a clown or whatever witty adjective used to describe his clothing. These are probably the same guys who wear kaki, cotton cargo shorts, white socks and solid color shirts with black/brown shoes. Give me a break!!

    are you saying you’re a progressive traditionalist? that you can pick and choose when to be progressive and when to be traditional? what about the rich history of golf attire in the USA, you say Open Championship est. 1860, what about the US Open est. 1895? what qualifies as rich enough?

      I bet you wear a tank top and jorts to your probation hearing.

        huh? what are jorts?
        You didn’t understand… it’s ok, I’ll spell it out… why say embrace / respect The Open’s rich history and save Jordans for normal Tour events in America when America also has a rich history of golf and golf attire. Different cultures tend to romanticize each other while at the same time we forget our own history and culture.

WATCH: PGA Tour players play hole blindfolded and it’s hilarious/amazing

Published

on

As part of a Srixon campaign, four PGA Tour players recently participated in a three-hole challenge, with each hole being a different game; hole No. 1 was blindfolded, hole No. 2 was costumes and distractions, and hole No. 3 was alternate shot with a baseball bat. The teams were Smylie Kaufman and Sam Ryder against Shane Lowry and Grayson Murray.

Watch the full video below, since it is quite entertaining (albeit not the type of golf that Old Tom Morris surely had in mind), but in particular, make sure to check out the first hole where Lowry and Ryder play a full hole completely blind folded. It’s amazing to watch how badly Ryder struggles, and how Lowry nearly makes par.

Cleveland-Srixon’s marketing department has been hard at work crafting these viral-esque ad campaigns; if you remember, former long-drive champion Jamie Sadlowski recently dressed as 80-year-old Grandpa Jamie to fool range-goers. That video has since gathered over 1.2 million views on YouTube.

Think you had a bad weekend on the course? At least you didn’t do this

We hope this golfer didn’t take the ultra-premium golf equipment plunge before sending his clubs to a watery grave. Either way, this was an expensive (and strangely calm) reaction to a bad round.

Tiger Woods battles terrifying deep-sea creature, wins

Published

on

With four tweets since July 21st, Tiger Woods is exposing himself on social media in a way we haven’t seen.

And with his latest tweet, he’s…exposing himself in a way we haven’t seen.

A shirtless-and-swimsuited Woods appears holding what he purports to be a lobster (but what looks more like a monster of the deep sea).

Nothing like it, indeed.

He’s lucky to have escaped with his life after battling that horrifying crustacean. Spiny lobsters, apparently, don’t have claws, but somehow that doesn’t make them any less terrifying, as they look poised to impale you and carry you off to their reefy lairs.

Not sure how big the beast in Woods grasp actually is, but it pales in comparison to this 14-pound creature from your nightmares.

14_pound_lobster_caught_near_Bermuda_0_48217534_ver1.0_640_480Anyway, Woods has been on something of a grand tour of late it seems, taking in a friendly version of El Clasico in Miami and posing with Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.

All of this is good to see. It was two months ago that Woods entered rehab following his now-infamous Memorial Day arrest for impaired driving.

What this portends for his future on the golf course is unclear, but you’d assume the 14-time major champion is feeling pretty good if he’s free diving after monsters of the deep.
