Like Jason Aldean's lyrics to his song My Kinda Party, the PGA TOUR follows the motto:
Worked all week.
Cleaned up, clean cut and clean shaved.
And so, when there is a sighting of facial hair, it is usually met with a golf clap of appreciation. The USGA has cut back the gnarly rough to what we have come to tag graduated rough. Facial hair has gone the same direction. There is an occasional five o'clock shadow, especially for the players with early tee times. But this is further evidence that Tiger Woods is itchy to play some golf.
Baby faced players like Rickie Fowler and Rory Mcllroy may even lack the need to scrape their visages with the razor every day. And thus, we begin the great debate of the best beards on the PGA TOUR.
