    Some of you guys should lighten up. This "Oh no rickie, not at the masters" talk is a little much. Not like he's wearing sweat pants or shorts.

    I may be wrong, but maybe PUMA is making or having a strong influence on him wearing them? I don't think Rickie went to Puma and said "hey let's try something new, make me some skinny, yoga/sweatpants I can wear golfing, let's see if the trend catches on." I think PUMA is to blame somewhat here as well. We don't know what's in his contract but I'm pretty sure Rickie could have said, **** no, to wearing these pants. I don't like them but just looking at it from Puma's angle too.

    Cool enough. I actually was not a fan til I put one on, like them a lot.




    I'm not the most slender of men, so when I put one on the collar looked silly and the cut made me look like I was squeezing into an extra smedium. lol.



    Like I get the "golfers are athletes too" angle to everyone wanting to make better fitting items and sneaker like cleats, but man, everyone is making their polo's like that anymore.



    I dunno, I guess that's why the blade collar bothers me more.



    Like I know people who were bothered by Payne Stewart for his Knicker look, but I wasn't and liked it because it was different, and not exactly something that was going to catch on with the masses.



    To be fair, I do like the hi-tops, I just think normal pants are fine with them.

    Laughable. Style, much like bourbon, is an acquired taste my friend. Just bc some have more than others doesn't mean they pee sitting down.

    He asked for them. Joggers and hi-tops are how he dresses off the course. He wanted to bring it to the course because he felt comfortable.

    Thank god he missed the cut so we won't have to see any of his ridiculous wardrobe. From what I hear I think Fowler is a good person but I just can't give him support with his ridiculous clothing choices. His flat bill hat makes his head look like a pin head. I also find it interesting that people are opposed to letting pros wear shorts during rounds because it is an unprofessional look or it goes against tradition. But it's okay to Fowler wear his joggers and his yoga pants?

    love ricky's game, attitude and just about everything about him he's great for the game and a heck of player but those pants are terrible. there is a fine line with everything and his fashion forward golf attire is no different. he looked ridiculous and it's even worse when he played the way he did for two days.
  • cxxcxx Members Posts: 3,102 ✭✭
    Every era had someone dressing like a clown. As much as I like Ricky's game, he's it for this generation. He'll look back with amusement later on and wonder what he was thinking, unless it has to do with the dollars, then he'll know what he was thinking.

    No, but I'm guessing that Johnny Weir would love those pants. Johnny Weir probably has those pants.



    I don't like the pants or shoes, but they actually don't bug me half as much as DeChambeau's hat. Way too contrived.

    Very extreme place to go to try to make a point.



    And yes I understand that it's the Masters and different from the Tour, but he's been wearing them all year and as far as I'm aware, the Tour hasn't told him to stop. So that should mean they find it within reason of the dress code.

    Seems to be a big confusion between style and fashion. His outfit might be fashionable (to some) but his outfit will never by stylish.
