Didn't the world leave the "men don't care about fashion and clothes, it's only women that do that" thing behind 20+ years ago?

I could see if you were married to the dude, but c'mon???

I think there are some occasions in your life where you have at least to try to dress properly... I think this is just making you ridiculous in front of everyone... IMHO

John Daly isn't going to wear a suit to these gatherings. He's a blue-collar guy who isn't going to dress up just because he won a golf tournament 20 years ago. If he's going to buck the social norm,

Pardon me but I think that will all that pink matching, this time JD looks like somebody making a great effort to seem like you don't give a crap! :D

I'd tell them to get a life too.

I expect men care about fashion and what they themselves wear , but I personally couldn't care what or how another man dresses.

Haha

I never said that what JD was wearing was formal. I said that NONE of them were dressed formally. Tiger and Phil were next to last and third to last in that department as well.

It was not intuitive. If someone uses a term, I expect them to use it correctly. So when you say formal, I expect you to be talking about formal, not semi-formal.

Dude, we can go to Styleforum and spend weeks discussing about the meaning of formal but one thing is sure that JD is not formally dressed (maybe he is according for him) in any way you want to intend the word. Now I will wait for a reply that will show me how pink checked jacked, pink t shirt, jeans and pink allstars are formal but I don't mind...

Anyway, with formal I mean suit, shirt and tie... thought it was pretty intuitive, but we see that me and you got diametrical opposite opinions on just everything and I like it! :D

I am very conservative in my work attire but that's me.  I don't have a problem with JD wearing Loudmouth to an event dinner.  I think he would look worse in a suit.   I have a pair of Loudmouth shorts and have to say they are very comfortable.

Dude... formal, semi formal, smart casual... who cares... one thing is dressing properly for a Major Champs dinner and one thing is dressing like a clown, but as said before, that's JD... unfortunately. This said, I love his style, perfect for a college pool party! (anticipating the reply: I know that you need also a bathing suit for a pool party, he would bring it as well... pink I think)

Evidently you care.  You are the one who used the term. I would prefer JD keep on the above at a college pool party.  I guess it doesn't matter as I would be looking at the women in the bikinis anyway.

I don't get the point of your answer but I agree about the chix over JD! Cheers! :D

He could have at least worn a tie and some slacks instead of jeans.  I'm ok with him trying to look different, but come on, the right pants and a tie would show so much more respect.  T-shirt under a sport coat doesn't really cut it at a formal dinner, kind of a poo-on-you action.

Respect for what? He's at the dinner and he's totally consistent with who he has always been and how he dresses on the course. I don't think it's a big deal.

So many professional golfers come from a country club background where everything is prim, proper and privileged. Daly comes from a poor background and is far from the typical pro golfer. Why does he need to conform?

The point was that you said nobody cares. I said you did because you put a label on it, that is all.

I would be checking out the chick while hanging with JD. He is bound to help you pull tail.

Honestly...  I do not have an issue with but I am surprised the club itself did not have the balls to enforce their own dress code.  Pretty sure jeans are not appropriate dress for dinner.  jeans and sneakers may be a bit over the top but so is Daly, everything about the guy screams over the top, his drinking, smoking gambling... oh wait I do all those. I guess I need to find me some queer looking blazers to wear with my jeans.

The host of the dinner, Martin Kaymer, didn't seem to care:

“You look at him and smile and you know that that’s just him,” the 26-year-old from Germany said. “Why should he come in a black suit and a tie where he doesn’t feel comfortable in? Everybody knows that’s the way he is. It didn’t disturb me, me as the host. I was fine. I was happy that he was there.”

I like to dress well when the occasion calls for it. For example, I like to look nice on the airplane (nice shirt, good slacks, good, polished shoes), instead of being dressed for going to the gym or stepping outside to get the morning paper.

As for Daly, something would be wrong if he had worn a dark suit. The way he dresses is who he is. Besides, this is not the kind of occasion where the right clothes are mandatory. Now if he were going to someone's funeral in that outfit, . . .

I dunno guys, it seems that the vast majority of you thinks there is nothing wrong with JD attire, I still thinks this is not respectful towards the event and the hosts but anyway, we are talking about JD so we can understand why he dresses like this! Cheers! ;)

Heh this is John Daly. You know where he stands on the whole suit thing. Tiger should have suited up. Would have looked better but what do I care what someone else wears?!

I read most of the comments and found it interesting. Here are my thoughts for whatever they are worth.  First I should tell you I grew up in boots and jeans.  We always cleaned the cow crap off the boots before we went to town and never judged people by what they wear.   A lot more crooks in suits than in wranglers has been my experience since leaving the ranch.  But if the hosts of the dinner care what people wear to the dinner they should say so on the invitation.  If they don't specify "proper attire" then a past champion should feel free to wear whatever pleases them to the dinner.  As to JD and Tiger, they are just fellow human beings trying to make their way through life as best they can the same way we all are.  Probably imperfect beings who made a few mistakes along the way, just like the rest of us.

    • Day 38 (03 Aug 21) - Jumped outside around mid-day just before the afternoon rain was to start to work on the left hand in the grip.  Been way too weak with the left hand of late, seeing too many pushes right.  Worked with the PW, making sure I had a stronger grip in hand before 1/2 swings with the ball.  Know it is not what I have been doing as it was somewhat foreign feeling.    Next step - once it stops raining (forecast has that early next week)  is to take it the range and work more there where I can work on full swings. 
    • I'll let you know how it is next week
    • Regatta Bay is on my list to play next. Don't think you can go wrong with that choice.   Links Sandestin was tight. Luckily my 4-hybrid was flying straight off the tee that day. I think I hit driver on only 2 holes. 
    • I use it all the time. I have two a purple dry erase markers in my bag at all times. (Not sure why I chose purple?) It also helps with strike location and it's a lot less sloppy than spraying foot spray on your club face. I use it on range balls too. By the time the ball stops rolling the dry erase has rubbed off, so the range guys don't mind at all. 
    • Does dry erase marker transfer from the ball to the club well? I’ve drawn on my clubface with dry erase marker and I don’t recall it ending up on the ball. I’m not trying to be a smartass, I’m asking because I don’t know. I’ve always done lie angle tests with a sharpie.
