I find it highly ironic on the day that the New York Times has a review of the Central Park revival of "Hair" that Sergio Garcia sports the unshaven look. Maybe there's the Samsonesque thought that the whiskers will add 10 yards to his tee shots. (Maybe he should trim them back and hope that a clean shave will help him find more fairways.) The odd Frank Nobilo and Dave Pelz aside, facial hair has been largely out of vogue among golfers since Old Tom Morris passed from the scene. Those of us with beards are sometimes made painfully aware that we are going very much against the grain of the well-scrubbed, clean-shaven country-club look. And when it comes to smooth faces, the PGA Tour rivals the New York Yankees clubhouse.
So...what do you think? Should Sergio run for his razor and give himself a clean, close shave before his next round?
