With the PGA Tour in the Bahamas for the Hero World Challenge, Puma released a new aquatic-inspired collection of golf apparel. One of the shirts, called the "Slow Play Polo," features a print of turtles playing golf.
Don't expect to see Bryson DeChambeau wearing it.
"It's an awesome collection," DeChambeau said, according to Golf Channel's Brentley Romine. "They have a turtle one, and I wasn't about to wear that."
DeChambeau owns a reputation as one of the slowest players on the PGA Tour. Rather than avoiding the shirt as a result, fellow Puma ambassador and marketing genius Rickie Fowler said DeChambeau should have seized the opportunity to have some fun.
"I thought it would've been awesome if he would've went with it," Fowler said. "And if people ask, 'Well, Bryson, why are you wearing it?' (He could say) 'Actually, it's my own line. You know, (I'm a) little slow. Gary (Woodland) and Rickie decided to jump on board and be very supportive of me to help me get through this tough time.'"
Woodland fired a 6-under 66 in Round 1 to share the Hero World Challenge lead while wearing the turtle-themed polo. Fowler donned a more muted version of the shirt and shot 69.
Perhaps DeChambeau will reconsider his stance after struggling to a 4-over 76.
