John Daly Pants: The 5 Strongest Fashion Statements in Golf
John Daly, not surprisingly, has managed to send a shock wave through the golf world.
No, it's not because of his Herculean drives, or even his off-course antics; it's his pants.
The pink slacks adorned in paisleys are a fitting look for Daly, whose eccentric personality has often overshadowed his unquestionable golf talent.
But are these ridiculous pants an aberration in an otherwise dull world of golf fashion?
5. Jesper Parnevik's Hat
Parnevik has generated a lot of headlines in the last eight months, though probably not the type he would've hoped for.
The Swedish golfer once employed a nanny by the name of Elin Nordegren, Tiger Woods' ex-wife and now one of the world's wealthiest jilted lovers.
As the stories of Tiger's infidelity began to leak to the press, Parnevik took the offensive and said that he deeply regretted introducing Elin and Tiger.
I can only imagine he also deeply regretted wearing those black and white vertical stripe pants and Tour-de-France lid.
4. Payne Stewart's Knickers
Payne Stewart tragically lost his life in 1999 in a horrific plane crash.
An 11-time PGA Tournament winner, and three-time Major Champion, Stewart was known for being vigorously patriotic.
He played for the U.S. on the Ryder Cup team five times and offered a litany of memorable quotes, including this one in reference to the European team:
"On paper, they should be caddying for us."
3. Ian Poulter's Color Combinations
It's hard to find a more flamboyant dresser on the PGA Tour today than Englishman Ian Poulter.
The son of a high-end fashion chain manager, Poulter's fearlessness when it comes to color coordination is truly unique.
Unfortunately, Poulter's sense of style hasn't translated to many wins, at least on U.S. soil.
His only career PGA win came early this year at the WCG-Accenture Match-Play Championship.
2. John Daly's Pants
John Daly surprised many when he shot a six-under, 66 on Day One of the 2010 British Open. The wheels fell off a bit on Day Two as the "Wild Thing" shot a four-over 76.
Luckily for him, most spectators at the Old Course were too busy looking at his pants to notice his shoddy play.
1. Tiger's Sunday Shirt
There isn't a more dramatic fashion statement in golf than Tiger Woods' Sunday red shirt.
For years, the sight of the red shirt sent shivers down the backs of Tiger's competitors.
While his recent off-the-course escapades have taken away from his game, there's no doubt that the legend of the red shirt will haunt golfers once more.
