When players wore shorts for their practice rounds in Abu Dhabi two weeks ago, it was hailed across the media as a hugely positive step for the game.
But it was another piece of clothing that caught the eye ahead of this week’s Dubai Desert Classic, with long-haired English star Tommy Fleetwood caught wearing a Nike headband on the range on Tuesday.
We picked up on the attire and put it to our Twitter followers who, with the help of a retweet from the man himself, gave us their initial thoughts.
Any thoughts?? https://t.co/fIT8TBkq9f— Tommy Fleetwood (@TommyFleetwood1) February 1, 2016
While the majority were negative, there were a few positive ones in there, too…
And a couple of hours later, we conducted a poll – which will runs until 5pm today (Tuesday) – to decide once and for all what people make of it.
So, @TommyFleetwood1's headband... Does it get your approval?— Bunkered Golf Mag (@BunkeredOnline) February 1, 2016
Not that it seems to matter to Fleetwood though, who was out playing a practice round today again wearing a headband. Only this time it was black.
Tommy Fleetwood :: Headband – Yay or nay?
What do you make of the latest fashions on the European Tour (shorts, high-tops, headbands etc) and are you in favour of this slight shift away from the game’s traditions? Leave your thoughts in the ‘Comments’ section below.
