Poll: Is Fowler the worst dressed golfer of all time?

| 09.04.2015

It’s almost time for the first tee-off at Augusta and a feast of top notch golfing action over the coming days.

Ladbrokes has wide range of markets and a number of special offers and place Rory McIlroy (6/1), Bubba Watson (10/1), Jordan Spieth (10/1) and Jason Day (16/1) at the head of the market.

Here at Ladbrokes News though, we’re focusing our attention elsewhere and debating the worst dressed golfers of all time.

Read on for our thoughts on the five biggest culprits and have your say below.

Ian Poulter

Loud shirts, blonde mullet, cycling-style sunglasses and bright pink chequered trousers are all on Poulter’s list of crimes but it is perhaps his patriotism that sees him onto our list. Red streaks in his hair and Union Jack patterns on everything from his trousers to his socks mean he has to be a contender.

Rickie Fowler

Like Poulter, Fowler is no stranger to a dodgy barnet, once shaving the letters USA into his hair for Ryder Cup duty. It is his insistence on wearing an all-orange outfit for the final day of tournaments – in honour of Oklahoma State University – though that earns him an entry.

His intentions may be honourable but he looks better dressed for flagging down planes at Heathrow than for the business end of a Major!

John Daly

The mind cannot conjure up a pattern crazier than the trousers Daly has worn on the world’s most famous golf courses. Partial to showing his national pride like Poulter he has been known to dress his lower half in the stars and stripes but unlike the Brit he has worse crimes.

Zig-Zag prints, zebra skin designs, diamonds and tie-dye trousers could just mean The Lion is a strong favourite here.

Boo Weekley

Weekley committed the ultimate sin at the at the 2008 Ryder Cup by teaming his navy trousers and red shirt combo with some pristine white socks.

He has also been seen rocking camouflage shirts and hats courtesy of his sponsor. Fair enough if he gets paid to wear them but the fact they rarely fit well is neither a ringing endorsement for the firm or the man!

Jesper Parnevik

It’s hard for any man to wear a hat well but Parnevik continues to try. If it’s not a cap with the peak bent all the way up – a la Wesley Snipes in White Men Can’t Jump – then it’s an ill-advised pork pie number which offers little to no shade from the sun meaning he is wearing it purely for fashion reasons – if you can believe that!
