Golf is one of the toughest sports out there, even for the people who play it professionally. Mishits happen all the time, wiith varying degrees of severity. One of the worst mishits you can have though is a shank, when the ball hits the hozzle of the club and shoots out to the right (for a right-handed golfer).

Crazy Golf Pants

Crazy Golf Pants

By Oliver Mauk

Golf is traditionally a sport where looking clean cut is a must. Collared shirt tucked into golf pants with a belt is pretty much what is expected of golfers playing at any private and many public courses. This doesn't mean you can't look fresh as hell on the golf course, especially when it comes to your pants. Throw out your boring old khakis, find your inner John Daly, and try some of these pants that are sure to make your friends envious (or make them laugh at you, depending on what kind of friends you have).
