The internet loses its mind at Justin Thomas and Jason DayJuly 20, 2017 Golf News
If you thought the opening day at Royal Birkdale would've been all about the golf you would've thought wrong. Joe Urquhart shines his Social Spotlight on Royal Birkdale...
There were plenty of fashion statements on show on day one of the The Open, but none more so than from Justin Thomas and Jason Day.
And, as always, there was a very mixed reaction on social media…
When you have a tee time at 9:58 but a business meeting at 4 ? https://t.co/ZUTtVBeXj6

How many golf clubs wouldn't allow Jason Day on the course dressed like he is at #TheOpen today?

Can we all get over the fact that Justin Thomas is dressed like Justin Timberlake today? Just play.

We really like them. The game has got to modernise and we have to embrace fashion. If that helps bring more golfers back then perfect.

Jason Day is a racerback away from being an LPGA nightmare.

I like the cardigan and tie, but the ball cap doesn't seem to fit the style.

I couldn't be more of a Jason Day fan but those shoes are straight trash. #TheOpen

Jason Day needs to have a serious word with himself regarding his future footwear after today's choice #TheOpen

Massive ? – looks an idiot! If you're going to wear a tie then wear it propely, not like a year 8 school Kid!

I've come around to trainer-style golf shoes but I draw the line at these hi tops Jason Day is wearing. Call me old school but.. #TheOpen
