Rickie Fowler, Justin Thomas growing mustaches for FedEx Cup (pic)
The currently scraggly hair sprouting on the upper lips of Rickie Fowler and Justin Thomas won’t make anyone forget NHL playoff beards, but the two PGA Tour golfers are doing the best they can to build some camaraderie or something by growing mustaches for the upcoming FedEx Cup Playoffs.

While Thomas’ outcropping of facial appears to be a new look for the 23-year-old, Fowler’s soup-strainer elicits memories of his mustachioed alter ego from a series of commercials a few years back: Dick Fowler P.I.
That fantastic blast from the past aside, the decision by Thomas and Fowler to grow Playoff Mustaches all started when the former posted a poll on Twitter. The results indicated fans overwhelming favored the duo growing the ‘staches.
So @RickieFowler and I are thinking of starting a little #playoffmustache.. What you guys think??

Suffice to say, these guys rocking the ‘stache will certainly lend to some on-course panache.
How it will translate to on-course success, however, remains to be seen. For what it’s worth, Thomas currently sits at No. 10 in the FedEx Cup points race while Fowler is bit further back at No. 28.
But in the mustache-growing department, on the other hand, the case can be made that Fowler is miles ahead.
