Unlikely Style Inspiration: Golfers

A few months ago I got the sudden urge to learn how to play golf, so I signed up for a community education course and we had our first class this past Saturday. Besides all the weird golf terms (frog hair?!), the most surprising thing I learned was that golf style is pretty amazing — in a plaid, pink, preppy, polo shirt-y kind of way. After the jump, check out five golf-inspired pieces that would look just as awesome on the street as they would on the fairway …
