Nice Effing Pants celebrates the wackiest, ugliest and coolest pants (or skorts) in golf — from the pros to the weekend hacker.

Westy celebrated the start of October by dressing like a pumpkin?

If you watched any of Sunday’s coverage of the Dunhill Links Championship, then you probably had to pick your jaw up off the ground when you saw Lee Westwood’s costume outfit.

It’s still unclear why the world No. 2 was wearing what appeared to be an orange sweatsuit. Perhaps he liked this Paris Hilton look. Or maybe he was doing his best impression of Rickie Fowler’s former Sunday head-to-toe all-orange getup (at least Westy chose a softer hue).

Whoo-ey!

Guess which player from Northern Ireland won the Dunhill Links Championship? Rory McIlroy? Nope, try again. Graeme McDowell? Wrong again. Then who? Michael Hoey (pronounced Who-eey) held off McIlroy by two shots despite the 22-year-old’s brilliant early run. McDowell followed his fellow countrymen with a tie for third.

Pretty impressive for three guys from a rather small country to finish 1-2-3, not to mention the recent success of Ulstermen in world golf.
