Masters Day 3: The Colours of "Moving Day"
Today, there were many who made their "move" toward winning this year's Masters by playing well or playing better. Then, there were those who did themselves a mischief.
A popular men's clothing company maintains that, "A man's level of success can be determined by his clothes."
Well, I agree, and here's my proof:
K. J. Choi Shot One (1) Under Today
K. J. Choi was paired with Tiger today, dressed in a spirited Aqua-Blue shirt with proper length trousers.
His one (1) under today moves him into the final grouping with the three (3) day leader, Rory McIlroy.
Angel Cabrera Shot Five (5) Under Today
Angel Cabrera "moved" into serious contention for yet another Green Jacket today, and did so in a smashing Golden Yellow shirt with coordinated Brown slacks, which were properly altered for him.
Charl Schwartzel Shot Four (4) Under Today
Charl may not be a household name, and his ensemble of White and Cream will not set the fashion world on fire, but his game matched his classic look which was balanced and looked great.
Adam Scott Shot Five (5) Under Today
Adam put together a sensational round today to put him in contention, and while his White-on-White ensemble proves why one ought to stay with the same manufacturer to maintain the same hue, the illusion of his thick soled shoes matching the banding on his shirt is quite pleasing to the eye.
He could shorten those trousers just a tad.
Luke Donald Shot Three (3) Under Today
Luke wore, by far, my favorite ensemble today. Think of it, a guy whose outfit looks and fits as well as he played.
Bo Van Pelt Shot Four (4) Under Today
While I am not a fan of black on the golf course, obviously Bo is, and demonstrated it by playing himself within earshot of the leaders. His Fire Engine Red shirt certainly made him easy to find for those he is chasing.
He could, however, shorten those trousers a bit.
Bubba Watson Shot Five (5) Under Today
Well, Bubba put together a wondrous round today dressed in Pure White from head to toe, and while I wish someone would tell him that a Sports Shirt is not supposed to be buttoned to the neck, I give him all the "props" I can for swinging a Pink-shafted driver !!!
Jason Day Shot EVEN Par Today
Jason's ensemble was as lackluster as his game today. Let's just chalk it up to youth, inexperience, and a lack of a clothing contract with someone who cares what their guy looks like on "Moving Day".
To quote Willie Bank of Ocean's 13 ... "Oh yawn, yawn."
Tiger Woods Shot +2 Today
Tiger wore what I'd call "yesterday's colours"—Royal Blue and Gray—and his round followed his colours, moving backwards on "Moving Day". This is distressing since he essentially owns a clothing company and should have come up with something which made everyone able to watch his charge, unless, of course, he woke up today and didn't much feel like charging.
By the way Tiger, while I'm glad you finally got the length of your sleeves settled, your trousers are still much too long.
Geoff Ogilvy Shot +1 Today
I am one of those guys who believe that all the talk about a man being threatened by Pink is just a lot of hooey. Unfortunately, Geoff chose to accompany his attractive Pink shirt with black (AKA the lack of colour) and it translated into his poor performance today.
