The tourists took it to the professionals during the first round of Turkey's All-Pro pro-am.
With players at the Turkish Airlines World Golf Final allowed to wear shorts for the first time in a major professional event, exactly half the field exercised the option. And, according to Derek Lawrenson of The Daily Mail, a top-heavy trio of them won their opening round matches:
The other thing of note was the fact, for the first time in a leading professional event, the players were allowed to wear shorts if they chose. Four of the eight-man field took up the option. Intriguingly, all four matches featured one man wearing long trousers and his opponent wearing shorts.You say 3-1? We say, "Feel the breeze." And what's that, you ask? Could a little calf confidence positively effect change on the course? We're thinking yes. (Photo of Lee Westwood at the Turkish Airlines World Golf Final by Getty Images)
The result of that little game-within-a-game was three to one in favour of the men trying something new.
