Justin Thomas looked the part in the first round of the British Open on Thursday thanks to an impressive score of 67, and also due to his outfit of a navy blue cardigan and matching tie.
The emerging 24-year-old star, formerly of the University of Alabama, raised eyebrows on the course at Royal Birkdale with an unusual ensemble for a golfer.
Thomas, the world number 13, opted for a casual shirt and tie look, with top button undone, and a cardigan buttoned up to protect him from the breeze coming in from the Irish Sea.
"It feels good. It's nice to have people talking about that. Obviously I knew it was going to get a lot of publicity out there," said Thomas.
"But I didn't come here to dress well. I came here to try to play some good golf. And I guess that just happened."
Thomas's three-under-par opening round has him right in contention as he seeks a first major victory and showed that his attire had certainly not hindered his swing.
"We did it at the Walker Cup as a team. And I played in it. And I know -- this is a golf shirt, so it's not like it's uncomfortable. And obviously it's not tight.
"It's something that I don't really even know I have on in terms of comfort-wise. And it was just something I wanted to do for this match."
