A few years ago while I while working for a golf club manufacturer, I had a personal run in with an apparent fashion faux pas. While on a corporate retreat in Las Vegas, contending with blistering heat, I was happy to have brought along my FootJoy golf sandals. As I greeted the owner of the company at the beautiful Lake Las Vegas golf course, it was as though I had slapped him in the face, as he sported a look of disgust at the idea that I would have even considered wearing golf sandals. Needless to say, I didn't wear them again during our trip.
Yesterday during the BMW Championship, leader Ryan Moore tested golfs fashion acceptance when he wore a hoodie (as seen in the image here). Even though he looked very stylish, it seems to have created an uproar with many golf enthusiasts. I've never claimed to be a fashion expert, but I personally don't see the big deal. As long as you look presentable, I don't see how this is any more offensive than say... John Daly's pants? From all of us at Eat Sleep Golf, good luck with the remainder of the tournament Ryan!
