Nice Effing Pants: Geoff Ogilvy
By Stephanie Wei under General

Nice Effing Pants brings you the wackiest, ugliest and coolest pants (or skorts) in golf — from the pros to the mediocre weekend golfer. Please send submissions to steph.wei@gmail.com.

After a few-month hiatus, this feature is back. In the spirit of winners, let’s start with Geoff Ogilvy, who defended his title last week and won the PGA Tour’s season opener, the SBS Championship. Despite a brilliant final round 63 by Rory Sabbatini, Ogilvy finished with a six-under 67 to edge out Sabbatini by one stroke.

Now, as reported last week, PUMA, Ogilvy’s former apparel sponsor, didn’t renew his contract. According to the Khaki Crusader and Chapeau Noir Golf, he sported Travis Mathew shirts on his way to the victory. KC added, “Geoff will wear T.M. clothing, sans logos, until the deal is announced officially.”

But what about his trousers? Chapeau Noir speculates they’re probably also T.M., but couldn’t confirm. I’m not an expert, but it seems Ogilvy can pull off just about any average slacks — though, the ones above look a tad…bunched?

Don’t forget to send submissions/recommendations (photos of yourself in your finest trousers/skorts/shorts) for future Nice Effing Pants posts. Like now! Please.
