Golf’s played outdoors, usually on wide open courses that expose players to the sun. So it’s normal for golfers to don a pair of shades to keep the sun out of their eyes while they smash little white spheres in the hopes of landing them into a hole in the ground. However, it’s the type of sunglasses that Phil’s wearing that has people questioning his fashion choices as of late.
Some fans of the sport, and Phil, have expressed their distaste in his choice of eyewear online, stating that he’s trying to look like a “State Trooper.” Others have likened Phil’s eye adornments to when a “good guy” professional wrestler and fan favorite decides to “turn heel.”
Fashion criticisms aside, other folks have noticed that Phil will wear the sunglasses regardless of the weather.
