Turns out Kevin Kisner wasn't wearing jeans the other day at East Lake

The other day we wrote about Kevin Kisner's choice in pants at the Tour Championship, wrongly deducing that the tour player was wearing what my grandmother used to call "dungarees" on the practice range.

There was a reference to "blasphemy," and "all hell breaking loose," which was our way of poking the golf establishment for normally being so uptight about this sort of thing. Problem is Kisner wasn't really wearing jeans, which is kind of an important point.

Kisner clarified to us he was wearing a pair of AG Green Label pants, which are sometimes listed as jeans, but are cotton instead of denim. We went to our Mr. Style, Marty Hackel, for clarification, and he sided with Kisner.

"When you say jeans, he wasn't wearing denim. He was wearing pants that are cut like jeans, but they're five-pocket pants that are perfectly acceptable on the golf course," Hackel said.

So there you have it -- jean cut, but not jeans, and totally acceptable by PGA Tour standards. That's a double bogey by us. Apologies to Mr. Kisner.
