Project Runaway: Bad fashion choices on the PGA Tour

Project Runaway: Bad fashion choices on the PGA Tour


Golf Magazine dug into the archives and pulled out some of the worst, and weirdest, fashion moments from the past 50 years of publishing. We’d like to see the skeletons in your closet, too. To submit images, upload them to your SI GOLFNation profile or email them to [email protected]. The best submission will win a free golf makeover. (More information about SI GOLFNation is here.)

Rex Caldwell, Payne Stewart, Keith Fergus, Greg Norman, Peter Jacobsen (from left) — 1983
“We were trying to project
the image of the PGA Tour
in a different light. So [the
Tour] picked guys who
had some personality, who
people liked on the golf
course. We were in towels,
in the shower with steam.
“We did some wonderful
things together, a lot of
fun. Back then, the Tour
promoted itself well. It
was tastefully done. We
Aussies dress that way.
Very… natural. I was
already used to it.”
– Greg Norman

Tom Kite — 1981

“What is Tom Kite wearing exactly:
A plaid diaper? A checked tablecloth
remnant? Some new form of shorts
with handkerchief points? Needless
to say, the look, whether for gym or
golf course, never caught on.”
– Style editor Woody Hochswender

Tom Weiskopf — 1977
“I was reflecting the styles and colors of the time. I knew that, on that day, I was
not going to look like everyone else. By
the way, pastels were in! My shoes, slacks
and belt were all custom made… I only
wish you could have seen the shoes!”
– Tom Weiskopf
