While it was great to see legendary eight-time major champion Tom Watson appear during coverage of the Sony Open on Thursday, I could not help but stifle a laugh at the way he was wearing his earpods during the video call.
We are all for setting a trend, especially at the age of 71, but we're not quite sure Watson's headphone game will ever catch on. Then again, when you're a Hall of Famer I guess you can do what you want!

CBS' Kyle Porter started the ball rolling, as a number of golf fans joined in to roast the 39-time PGA Tour champion.
"Legit never seen another human wear headphones like Tom Watson wears them," tweeted Porter.
Take at look at the rest of the comments in the thread below:
“Those headphones were put in a position to fail. None of us were involved in any decision about headphone prep. Now, I'm not trying to knock anybody here, because I actually I feel like that's a sign of great leadership to be decisive. So I’m sorry you took it that way.” pic.twitter.com/3AGelBmgM1— Kevin Van Valkenburg (@KVanValkenburg) January 14, 2021

It’s like carbon dating. You can judge how old someone is by how deplorably their headphones are applied.— Theodore (@carpo_10) January 14, 2021
