Yes Folks, That's a Hoodie at the British Open

I'm all for singularity, and standing out amongst your peers (hell, I got a bowtie in the mail yesterday). But the one thing I love about the Open Championship is the subtle outfits that even the loudest of players will sport. It's like Wimbledon in that sense; go insane all you want, but when you get to where the Claret Jug is resting, you go simple and classy.

Not I, said Ryan Moore. Dude is rocking a hoodie ("I call hoodies hoodles") on Thursday at Royal St. George's. That's a picture of it above!

Call me crazy, but I don't know if they'd let you on the course if you weren't a participant in this event. Old Tom Morris is probably just shaking his head right now.

I liked it when Moore was wearing the necktie, but the hoodie is a step in the wrong direction. What's next, is he going to play golf in a Snuggie?

Disrespectful to the oldest major. The ties would have been great though.
