Golf fans react to Viktor Hovland's extravagant trousers at The Masters

Viktor Hovland has grown into one of the most popular players on the PGA Tour and he caught the eye at The Masters with a special choice of clothing.

During the first round at Augusta National, Hovland sported a pair of bright pink trousers as he walked the famous fairways in Georgia.

The young Norwegian wore a normal black shirt, so his trousers stood out like a sore thumb even amongst the azaleas and the beauty of the venue.

Hovland had a very mixed day on Thursday. He finished with a card of level par after making five birdies, three bogeys and a double-bogey on the par-4 11th hole.

Hovland, 24, has already won the Hero World Challenge, the World Wide Technology Championship and the Dubai Desert Classic in the last six months.

He is much fancied to go well this week and he is five shots behind Sungjae Im after 18 holes. Im made five birdies and an eagle on his way to a solid 67.

Hovland made a similar clothing choice to five-time Masters champion Tiger Woods who wore a pink shirt on Thursday. He shot a hugely impressive 71 after a 508-day absence from the PGA Tour.
