Golf players voted best-dressed in sport

Fashion icons: golf players

By Sandy Driver, Golf Correspondent

Famous for their colourful and achingly cool attire, golf players have now been officially recognised as the sporting world’s best-dressed.

With intricately-patterned trousers, shorts and tops, none of which match, together with a random baseball cap or Peaky Blinders-style hat, golf players cut a dash on fairways all over the world.

As The Open Championship gets into full swing at Royal St George’s in Sandwich, Kent, fashion-conscious youngsters can be seen dressing like their heroes on the streets of Britain.

Research by the University of Suffolk reveals golf players were the most respected for their dress sense, narrowly beating darts professionals.

Fashion expert Lorraine Fisher, 34, said: “It’s extraordinary how they do it, but somehow picking up a golf club and walking onto a course gives golf players a tremendous insight into what looks good on them.

“You only have to look at the fine specimens in the golf club bar to see a wonderful display of colour and style. They are no golf mugs.”

To further improve their winning look, golf players add shoes that look like they belong to a bowling alley – a clever accessory that had boffins at the University of Suffolk drooling.
