John Daly as stylish as ever at Open Championship with pineapple pants (pic)
John Daly is without question one of the most colorful personalities in the history of professional golf. And the fact that he has adopted a style of golf attire befitting such a uniquely original persona only adds to his outrageous persona.
Daly’s fashion-forward (backward?) approach to clothing was on full display Thursday during the first round of the 145th Open Championship at Royal Troon, as the 50-year-old is rocking … pants with pineapples on them?

Interesting choice, although not at all surprising in the least. As noted in the above tweet, the pants are likely an offering from Daly’s Loudmouth Golf line.
Perhaps Daly was inspired to don the pineapple pants after being awaken by the soothing sounds of Rupert Holmes’ classic, “Escape (The Piña Colada Song)” from his alarm clock Thursday morning. Who knows.
It’s worth noting that these Piña Colada pants aren’t even the most outrageous slacks Daly has worn on the course, lest we forget his SpongeBob SquarePants pants from the Qatar Masters in 2014, which he donned again at that year’s Open Championship.
And in case anyone is wondering, Daly, a recent addition to the Champions Tour, has an exemption to play at the Open Championship until he’s 60 as a former winner. That’s a lot of years of outrageous outfits.
