Step aside SpongeBob, John Daly’s chosen golf attire as it pertains to his choice of pants has moved on to something a little less cartoonish and a lot more sexy.
Daly previously was spotted getting some work in at Royal Liverpool earlier this week while wearing some pants in the motif of the kids cartoon character known for living in a pineapple under the sea (SpongeBob SquarePants for the uninitiated).
On Thursday, for his first round of the major — Daly has an exemption to compete in The Open Championship until he is 60 due to his 1995 British Open victory — Daly donned a pair of slacks that predominantly featured busty women on them.
Jeez Louise, now that’s a look. To paraphrase Jerry Seinfeld in “The Pilot” episode: “I haven’t seen women like this together outside of a Russ Meyer film.”
The original assumption was that Daly would only rock garish and outrageous pants during practice rounds prior to the British Open, believing that he would recognize that paying proper respect to the majesty and tradition of the The Open Championship was in order and that it would compel him to opt for a more conservative, appropriate pair of pants.
Clearly, that’s not the case.
