The debate stirred during Sunday’s final round of the Farmer’s Insurance Open: Was Tiger Woods, famous for his Sunday Red, not actually wearing red?! His striped number appeared pink from a distance, and it was only up close that it appeared his shirt was indeed red, inter-mixed with white stripes.
Woods, who closed the tournament with a five-under 67, appeared to enjoy the stripey debate, and added some fuel to it by refusing to answer questions directly in his post-round presser. Here was the exchange:
Q: Big debate on TV this morning about whether that’s pink or red or orange.
Tiger Woods: Yeah.
Q. Do you have an answer?
That was it. Notah Begay III sought to put the matter to bed with a tweet that included three Nike golf shirts, including Woods’s Sunday gamer, which he identified as “Gym Red.”
In a GOLF poll on Instagram — extremely scientific, we know — 55 percent of respondents dubbed the shirt “pink.” But this is the Internet, which means you, dear reader, get to decide for yourself.
