Golf fashion is a mixed bag. It's possible to look pretty dapper on the course. It's also possible to look like a total idiot. We gathered up some of the latter for your "enjoyment."
We start our countdown with a guy who's not afraid to stand out in a fashion-impaired crowd. Careful, Rickie — you don't want to look so much like a pumpkin, especially around Halloween.
13. Johnny Miller
Miller epitomized 1970s golf fashion: The butterfly collar, the loud checked polyester pants. We only regret that this picture isn't in color to see him in all his garish, gag-inducing glory.
12. Doug Sanders
They called Sanders (seen here strolling with Jack Nicklaus) the Peacock of the Fairways back in his 1960s and '70s heyday. They were kinda stupid back then. Or color-blind.
11. Chris Berman
Boomer all but ruined the U.S. Open this year with his tired "analysis." Here, he extends his lack of golf savvy to his on-course attire, showcasing gut and moobs that would be the envy of anyone this side of Mickelson.
10. Jesper Parnevik
Any points that Jesper gets for advertising savvy — recognizing that there's ad space on the underside of his lid — are lost for looking like a clown. The lime cardigan ain't helping, either.
9. Duffy Waldorf
Duffy has faded from view — thankfully, for the viewing public.
8. Shingo Katayama
Not sure what all is going on here, but I do know that if golf ever adopts jersey numbers, Shingo's ahead of the curve.
7. Jack Nicklaus
The only downside to the greatest day in golf history? Jack dressed his age for the occasion. In winning his sixth Masters, the Golden Bear showcased a golden paunch hanging over the waistline of his plaid sans-a-belt slacks.
6. Ryan Moore
A little torn over this one. Moore looks kinda stylish, in a hipster-y sort of way. But he's trying just a little too hard, so he makes the list.
5. Woody Austin
Woody's showing some love for the red, white and blue here, but that's part of the problem — he never met a color he wouldn't wear on a mismatched shirt.
4. Rory Sabbatini
Rory doesn't have many friends on Tour, and dressing like a walking can of grape Nehi can't be helping much.
3. The 1999 U.S. Ryder Cup Team
Clearly, the 1999 European Ryder Cup team members were so distracted by the U.S. team's horrendous affronts to fashion sense that they lost their focus and their 10-6 lead on the last day. So what was the 2012 American team's excuse?
2. Ian Poulter
Hey Ian, you think American golf fans hate you now — just wear this little gold lamé number a few more times and see what happens.
1. John Daly
Apparently, Long John will do anything for a buck these days — like wear pants that Stevie Wonder just called to say are hideous.
