Golf: Hatton defends divisive hoodies at BMW PGA Championship
(Reuters) - Tyrrell Hatton defended his clothing choice at the BMW PGA Championship this week after the hoodies he wore during the tournament shared the opinion of golf fans on social media.
Hatton's clothing became a major topic of conversation at the event, sparking a debate over acceptable dress codes for traditional sports.
His sponsor Adidas promised to give away 10 similar hoodies to his followers on Twitter, and the 28-year-old said he was surprised at the excitement his clothes caused.
"The hoodies look good and there's no reason there should be a problem with them," said four-time European Tour winner Hatton, adding that they were comfortable to play with.
"It creates a bit of debate. People are divided, they don't know if they like it or not, but I think it's a cool thing that people are talking about, they should be open to the idea of a more open one too do sport instead of being a little smart. "
Hatton will go into the finals on Sunday, three shots ahead of next challenger Joachim B. Hansen from Denmark and Frenchman Victor Perez.
