Over the years, golfer John Daly has become somewhat of a fashion icon in the golf world, courtesy his crazy pants all over the place. The sports veteran has always shocked his fans with his interesting collection of bottoms. Hawaiian prints, shagadelic patterns, awning stripes, raspberry argyles or disco-ball designs; you name it and the man has flaunted it.
Daly recently stole the show again when he showed up for the Senior Open Championship at St. Andrews wearing the most amusing trousers that only he could pull off. His fancy trousers were laden with images of $100 bills and the man even chuckled that he has a lot of cash on him in an interview.
The sports legend had withdrawn from last week’s Open at Carnoustie due to crippling osteoarthritis in his right knee. He later got some treatment done in Arkansas for the knee, which helped him play for this tournament. Daly was clear about not wanting to miss out on the St. Andrews game where he had won the Claret Jug, beating Costantino Rocca in a playoff, 23 years ago.
The doctors are now hoping that the bone marrow taken from his hip and injected into his knee will make him feel better soon. But for now, instead of walking 18 holes at the Old Course, he would be using a buggy and play Kingsbarns instead.
But thank goodness, even ill health could not hold the man back from experimenting with style. As we know, fashion on the PGA Tour has forever been bland in the past. But it’s amazing how more and more men like him are expressing their real personality through clothing. Golf has never been known for loud pants, but Daly seems to be breaking new ground in that area.
