Everyone’s talking about the same thing on day two of the Masters: Jason Day’s threads.

The Aussie’s new-look vest by Malbon Golf has attracted the attention expected when the Filipino-owned lifestyle brand unveiled his scripting for the week.

But the former World No 1 – who signed with Malbon in January – could be flirting with PGA Tour endorsement rules.

It is unclear whether the Masters has its own set of endorsement policies, which may spare Day (and Malbon’s) blushes. Augusta National could very well operate on a separate list of clothing rules.

However, PGA Tour terms suggest that Day could be in trouble of an endorsement breach. Interestingly, Day was seen without the vest on when hitting his tee shot at the first hole for his second round.

According to the PGA Tour’s Player Endorsement Policy, all logos/marks must satisfy a set of specific terms and conditions, including size, location and quantity.

One rule, particularly, looks like it could potentially clash with Day’s ‘cigarette carton’ vest, that fans wasted no time in taking aim at.

It states: “A mark (other than a mark on a golf bag) may not exceed three by five inches (3”x5”).”

The PGA Tour has been contacted for comment, though Day did confirm later that Augusta National had asked him to remove the sweater.
