Erik van Rooyen’s ankle-shy pants caused quite a stir at The Open

Published

on

Erik van Rooyen’s 68 in round two vaulted him up the leaderboard and into contention on Friday morning at Royal Portrush. But while the South African’s golf has been impressive over the opening two days at The Open, it’s van Rooyen’s pants which have got everyone talking.

The 29-year-old’s ankle shy red pants on Friday were such a hot topic that they even dominated the chatter during his post-round media duties. Following his second round, van Rooyen was asked seven questions by the press, and five of those were about his pants.

Speaking on the pants in question, van Rooyen confidently stated after his round

“I like the fact that it’s a little bit different yet still classy at the same time. It’s not out there and whacky with a bunch of flashy colors … If you’re going to wear it, you’ve got to own it. I feel like I’m owning it.”

However, while the South African may feel that way, his trousers received a much more mixed reaction on social media.

What’s your take on Erik van Rooyen’s polarizing pants, WRXers?

    I’ve noticed him wearing these type of pants all year… they are hideous. They are jogging pants not golf pants…

    way too feminine for me, if you want comfort try wearing “plus fours” They at least make you look like a golfer!

    These aren’t even short? My ankles are showing with every pair of pants/jeans I wear. I roll/cuff the bottom of them. That’s what people do now. Have fun with your baggy pants that bunch up on top of the shoe.

      In high school we’d mock anyone wearing pants like that and called them floods. Nothing has changed.

    Golf clothes are morphing into gym clothes.

    I’m behind the curve on this trend: I just started wearing my shirts untucked.

Bryson DeChambeau’s latest message to slow play critics: “Screw all y’all haters”

Published

on

Just a few of days after vowing to step up his attempts to improve his pace of play, a video has surfaced from this Wednesday’s Pro-Am at Medinah of DeChambeau defending his pace at last week’s event and attacking his critics.

The video which you can see here at the Twitter account @DMeyer06, appears to be taken on a fans Snapchat account, and within it DeChambeau states

“I was never on the clock last week, y’all can say whatever you want, but we’re having a fu**ing good time. So screw all y’all haters”

DeChambeau’s message in the Snapchat video looks to contradict the statement he posted to his Instagram account on Monday where he said

“I’m constantly trying to improve and I will do my very best to improve my pace.”

DeChambeau is currently in action at this week’s BMW Championship where he posted a score of 1 under par in his opening round.
