Prior to this past weekend’s U.S. Open Championship, I’d never heard of Billy Horschel and even then I was only able to learn that he is “some dude from UF”, per one of my more tuned-in PGA fan friends. However, Horschel quickly became a household name yesterday, but not because he played smart and tough enough to finish tied for fourth. It’s because he wore a pair of pants that had octopuses all over them.
Horschel’s clothes were provided by RLX, which is Ralph Lauren’s fancy pants golf line, and the culmination of the company’s efforts arrived yesterday morning with a huge Cephalopoda statement that had the Intertubes and the Twitters a-buzzin’. Of course, a lot of people scoffed at Horschel’s chosen pants, but not I. For they are the greatest golf pants that I have ever seen and I love them.
In fact, I love them so much that I wrote a poem to the RLX octopus pants.
