PGA Tour pro Troy Merritt is considered the worst dressed golfer in the world, according to CBS Sports writer Kyle Porter.
Porter made his feelings known after seeing Merritt run Tom Hoge close to winning the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am on Sunday.
I don't feel confident about a lot of things in pro golf, but I feel *very* confident that Troy Merritt is the worst-dressed top-200 golfer in the world (maybe in the history of the sport). pic.twitter.com/bnfqIl6jIl— Kyle Porter (@KylePorterCBS) February 6, 2022
"I don't feel confident about a lot of things in pro golf, but I feel *very* confident that Troy Merritt is the worst-dressed top-200 golfer in the world (maybe in the history of the sport)," tweeted Porter to his 77,000 followers.
Merritt has won twice in his PGA Tour career, first back at the 2015 Quicken Loans National before following up three years later at the 2018 Barbasol Championship.
The American rocked a green and black camo print polo at Pebble Beach on Sunday, and matched it with a black cap, trousers and shoes.
In all fairness, we thought Merritt's outfit looked pretty smart. But not in the eyes of Porter.
Despite the CBS writer's adamant tweet that Merritt is the worst dressed golfer in the top 200, and potentially in all of sport, it's fair to say a number of his followers were in disagreement.
Some voted for Rory Sabbatini, others for Ian Poulter (back in the day at least), Jason Kokrak and John Daly, with several calling for Woody Austin.
We would probably have to agree with the latter as Woody has worn some absolute shockers down the years on the PGA Tour.
