Golfers have been responsible for some ‘interesting’ fashion choices over the years. From gaudy colours and crazy patterns to hipster chic, we take a look at some of golf’s wackiest outfits, and the players who wore them!
5) Ryan Moore
American golfer Ryan Moore likes nothing more than to bring the hipster vibe to the PGA tour. He regularly plays wearing a shirt, a tie that may or may not be tucked into his shirt, and waistcoat.
4) Shingo Katayama
This Japanese golfer loves nothing more than wearing a cowboy hat out on the course. Not content with a standard cap or visor to keep the sun out of his eyes, Katayama’s unusual choice of headwear is the perfect partner to his unique putting technique. Other fashion statements from this European Tour player include Hawaiian print shirts and golfing trousers with saguaro cactus printed on them.
3) Rickie Fowler
American golfer, Rickie Fowler, is a big fan of bright colours; especially orange, which he wears on the final day of tournaments as a nod to his time at Oklahoma State University. However, one of his most stand-out outfits to date has to be the blue tracksuit combo he wore at the 2015 British Open. His sense of style might not be to everyone’s taste – but his signature clothing line with Puma shows that there is an appetite for it somewhere.
2) Ian Poulter
Bright Britpop golf trousers, outlandish hairstyles and floppy caps: British golfer Ian Poulter is renowned for his unique style. His love of bright colours and tartan golf trousers has won him many fans, as well as his own clothing line too!
1) John Daly
The most outrageously dressed golfer award has to go to John Daly. There are so many unique outfits he’s displayed since turning pro in 1987 that it’s difficult to know where to begin!
A lover of patterned trousers in bold colours and block coloured golf shirts – a classic look of his is the stars and stripes of his nation’s flag, colourful harlequin patterns or flags of other nations such as the UK or Norway, depending on where he’s playing.
Let’s face it; Daly’s sense of style makes him a bit of a legend. Here are some of the stand-out John Daly outfits we’ve found:
Golf insurance is just as essential as the right outfit. If you take out a policy with Golf Care you can get three free rounds of golf at some of the UK’s top golf courses; perfect for showing off your latest golfing attire.
