ST. LOUIS—Dustin Johnson is not one for exposition. Which is ideally fine, since his abruptness never ceases to deliver.
For a second true year, a PGA of America authorised a PGA Championship margin to don shorts during a tournament’s use rounds. Given temperatures were in a midst 90s on Monday (with a genuine feel in a 100s), many of a margin took advantage of a loose dress code.
One important that did not, however, was World No. 1 Dustin Johnson. Many chalked this adult to a fact that DJ doesn’t demeanour like he’s sweated a singular day in his life. But, vocalization to a media on Tuesday during Bellerive, Johnson had a somewhat reduction difficult answer for rocking pants in a Missouri heat.
“Yeah, we unequivocally forgot to container them,” Johnson said.
Oh. That would do it.
“I mean, currently we was playing, we was going to play unequivocally early this morning so it wasn’t going to be too prohibited so we only wore pants,” Johnson continued. “And we did it final year and during Quail Hollow, and it roughly felt kind of uncanny wearing shorts, generally when we wear pants each singular day out here. At home we do wear them a bunch, though yeah, we unequivocally forgot.”
For a record, players will have to wear pants during a tangible tournament, and maybe Johnson’s personally prepping for those conditions by eschewing shorts. But, if we take a male for his word, that’s not a case. Which only proves a pros, only like us, have no thought how to pack.
