Jason Day absolutely ridiculed for bold US Open outfit

Jason Day

Is 2018 destined to be remembered as the year of the ‘Golf Fashion Faux-Pas’?

The 2015 US PGA champion was the butt of social media jokes after turning up for his pre-tournament press conference dressed in a rather distinctive body-warmer-slash-gilet.

Here it is in all its glory...

Predictably, the Twitterati had a field day with the Aussie’s bold look…

Irrespective of what he’s wearing, former world No.1 Day is one of the favourites to win the US Open this week.
