A sweaty Tom Watson needs a new shirt at the PGA Championship

Andrew Redington

The American Ryder Cup captain is sticking out at Oak Hill for a not particularly flattering reason.

The PGA Championship is renowned for being an unbearable sweat box, with players often trudging through 95-degree August heat. But it's comparably cool in upstate New York this week, with temperatures just over 80 degrees on Thursday. You'd just never be able to tell by looking at golf legend Tom Watson.

Watson, the 63-year-old Hall of Famer, was given an invite as the captain in next year's Ryder Cup, an event put on by the same PGA of America hosting this week. Someone at Ralph Lauren, however, scripted out the wrong color shirt, and it's not the best of looks for the regal Watson:

Just looking like one of those old, creepy hacks out for a country club weekend in August. We've probably all been there, but it's still a stark contrast to all the others out on the course. I almost feel bad making light of the legend, but at least I'm not alone:

The old timer is hanging in, though, and currently has a better score than Tiger Woods: even-par through his first nine holes.
