It wasn’t even 8 a.m. PT before we had the first notable apparel sighting from the 2015 U.S. Open at Chambers Bay. It came from 25-year-old Morgan Hoffmann and his cheetah-print slacks.
Coupled with a black long-sleeved top, a black hat and a pair of white shoes, Hoffmann is already the leader in the clubhouse for most eccentric look of the day.
His round likely won’t be a fast one in those cheetah pants. USGA officials expect the pace of play to be 4 hours, 45 minutes for the opening groups. Hoffmann teed off in the fifth group this morning on the back nine.
