The Loop

Pink on the Links

Pink seems to be the color of choice at Oakmont after Steelers' black and yellow.

Shingo Katayama, who is playing with Ian Poulter just teed off on the first hole wearing a pink hat.

Poulter, as you might guess, has on pink pants to match his pink and white shoes.

As Bubba Watson, who has a pink-shafted driver said yesterday, "If I outdrive you with a pink driver, you can't make fun of me." Watson averaged of 300.5 yards off the tee yesterday and ranked 25th in the field. He certainly should be able to have a realistic shot of driving the par-4 17th today where the tees have been moved up to 308 yards. — Jeff Patterson
