7 golf styles we're surprised didn't take off (Actually, we're not surprised at all)

__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 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__
