7 golf styles we're surprised* didn't take off (*Actually, we're not surprised at all)
By Sam Weinman
Golf style is fleeting. Those plus fours from the 1930s had already run their course a decade later, and the oversized shirts Fred Couples sported in the early '90s now look like intricately-designed pillow cases.
But those were at least the prevailing trends of the era. Some looks, meanwhile, had much shorter life spans -- for reasons that now seem obvious.
Specifically, we're talking about:
The Martin Kaymer buff
The Woody Austin Star Spangled Banner shirt
The Hal Sutton cowboy hat
The Jarmo Sandelin bizarro futuristic sunglasses
The Jarmo Sandelin (a rare double winner!) bizarro Andy Warhol white hat thingy
The Jesper Parnevik upturned hat brim
The Bill Murray Elmer Fudd hat
