John Daly’s garish pants party moves on to PGA Championship (photo)
John Daly, a winner of the PGA Championship back in 1991 PGA Championship at Crooked Stick, has a lifetime exemption from qualifying for the fourth and final major tournament of the PGA Tour season.
Much like he did at last month’s British Open, Daly happily took advantage of any exemption bestowed upon him and presumably will play at Valhalla Golf Club, the site of this year’s PGA Championship.
On Tuesday, Daly took part in the long drive competition ahead of the tourney’s start of Thursday. And again, like he did at the British Open with great fanfare, the golfer took advantage of the big stage to model some truly garish pants.
While the slacks that Daly sported on Tuesday did not feature SpongeBob SquarePants or busty stripper gals like those he modeled at The Open Championship, that does not mean that the pants were conservative by any stretch of the imagination.
In fact, the latest incarnation of John Daly’s “Brotherhood of the Traveling Pants Party” were a straight-up multi-colored, chaotic nightmare, bearing a paint-splattered theme that would have caused Jackson Pollock to wake up screaming in a cold sweat if the artist were still alive and happened to gaze upon them.
Yowsers. Now that’s a look. A look that folks would be well-served to look away from before too long and irreparable ocular damage was done to one’s rods and cones.
And for what it’s worth, Daly managed to bust-out a 314-yard tee shot at the long-drive competition, a distance not good enough to crack the Top 10 when it was all said and done.
But think about it this way: Imagine staring down at golf ball before pulling the driver back and seeing a portion of those pants in your peripheral vision. It’s amazing Daly even made contact.
