Golf - The 150th British Open - Day One - US golfer John Daly caused a whole lot of dropped jaws and stifled giggles today when he he came out to play his first round at St Andrew's Old Course looking like he'd been mugged in a charity shop.
Sporting a turquoise hat, a powder blue jumper, a lurid pink polo shirt, white shoes and some purple psychedelic trousers, Daly cut quite a dashing figure on the links.
One spectator commented:
"What does he look like? Is he colour blind, or what? I know golfers tend to be a bit sartorially challenged at the best of times, but there's a difference between shitting, and riving your arse."
But not everybody was quick to recoil in dismay. Fanny Clutterbuck from Billericay told us:
"I fink he looks cool. Nuffink wrong wiv wot 'e's wearing at all. Brightens this dreary 'ole up no end. I'm all for it innit."
John daly was still out on the course when we went to press, so we've no idea how he scored yet. (Update: he finished six under.)
More as we get it.
