Ian Poulter

Golfers Who Are Not Afraid to Show Off Their Look

Watching the 2010 British Open at St. Andrews this week, I cannot help being captivated by the wardrobe choices of golfers, John Daly and Ian Poulter. I do not think you will go unnoticed at your local golf course by wearing their line of clothing. I will say one thing, both John Daly and Ian Poulter stand out not just for what they wear but they pretty solid professional golfers.

John Daly is 44 years old American who turned pro in 1987 and joined the PGA Tour in 1991. Daly was the ninth and final alternate to play in the 1991 PGA Championship. Daly shocked the golfing world when he won the PGA Championship defeating Bruce Lietzke by three shots. Daly was the first golfer since Jerry Pate to win a major in his first year on the Tour. Daly also won the PGA Rookie of the Year in 1991. In 1995, Daly surprised the golf world again to capture his second career major winning the British Open at St. Andrews. Daly won the British Open in a playoff defeating Constantino Rocca. He has five career PGA victories and nineteen victories over his long career.

Daly has been one of the most popular players on the PGA Tour. He has a very rocky career and social life. He battled alcoholism, gambling, assault charges, anger management, and drug addiction. Daly has been married and divorced four times. Daly has battled weight problems and in 2009 had lap-band surgery done where he has lost over one hundred pounds. It is common for John Daly, while on the golf course, to consume several cigarettes and Diet Cokes.

Daly lost his exempt status on the PGA Tour in 2007 and plays on sponsor exemptions except for the PGA Championship and British Open, where he can play in those tournaments as long as he wants to.

The clothing you see John Daly wearing on the golf course is from a company called Loudmouth Golf. Loudmouth Golf sponsors John Daly. Loudmouth Golf is an American founded sportswear company based in California. Their clothing line was worn by the Norwegian Curling Team during the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. To view the collection of clothing, go to http://www.loudmouthgolf.com/.

Ian Poulter is a 34 year old English golfer on both the PGA Tour and European PGA Tour. He turned pro in 1995 and has eleven professional victories. Poulter has yet to win a major championship but came close in 2008, where he finished second in the British Open. Poulter has been a member of the European Ryder Cup teams in 2004 and 2008. Poulter's biggest career victory was capturing the 2010 Accenture Match Play Championship defeating fellow countrymen, Paul Casey, 4 & 2.

Poulter is well known for his distinct clothing on the golf course. It has been noted that Poulter most likely picked up fashion sense from his mother, was a manager at women's clothing store in United Kingdom. In 2007, Poulter created Ian James Poulter Design. This is where you can purchase your favorite look of Ian Poulter. To view his clothing line, go to http://www.ianpoulterdesign.com .

Honestly, I probably would not look good wearing either line of clothing. Well, if you are looking to dazzle your playing partners the next time you play a round of golf, take a look at these websites.  You will be the talk of the course and the town.
