If golf was measured by facial hair appearance, we would have an exciting race at the top of the leaderboard. By Jonathan Spencer
With beards rarely discussed on the European and PGA Tour, Golf Monthly delves into the wonders of the beards in world golf.
The topic has been brought to our attention by Boo Weekley, who recently turned up to the Sony Open rocking an outrageous beard. Unfortunately for Boo, he missed the cut by one shot.
Golfers nowadays think long and hard about their appearance. Usually this comes in the shape of what clothes they wear but some have taken matters into their own hands. What are the chances we may see more impressive beards in the upcoming tournaments, such as the Tshwane Open and AT&T pro-am?
So if those teeing off on a Saturday are desperate to grow a beard and don’t know which style they want, here is a look at what you can choose between…
Boo Weekley rocked up to the Sony Open with this fantastic effort. Lets hope this stays for a while. Maybe he could have a future job in the Santa Claus movies. Bravo Boo.
Graham DeLaet has sculptured his beard brilliantly for the last two seasons on tour. Wonder what he can hold in that beard?
Shane Lowry has always been at the top of the beard game. A strong beard for a smiley character. You couldn’t ask for a better combination.
In 2011, Glover showed off his impressive beard. He had a great combination of density, colour and sideburn that beard enthusiasts would envy. The 2009 US Open champion should grow it back.
The French golfer pulls his beard off nicely doesn’t he? With a jawline like his, this silver beard is a thing of beauty
Back in the day, Ryan Moore use have a strange but great beard and tie combination. Bring it back Ryan.
Thomas Bjorn’s beard makes him look a little bit scary but it is a fine effort nevertheless. However, the Dane has gone back to sporting the stubble.
