Jason Day gets roasted over Open shoe choice

Jason Day shoes

The internet had a field day with Jason Day’s choice in shoes at the Open Championship on Thursday.

It didn’t take long for eagle-eyed viewers to notice the former World No 1 was sporting some pretty flashy footwear for the opening round at Royal Birkdale.

Day was wearing Nike’s new hightop golf shoe, and it certainly was not greeted with universal approval.

In fact, people hated them.

And he wasn’t the only one to get ridiculed because of his sartorial choices as Justin Thomas’ outfit also caught the eye of viewers.

At least it didn’t appear to put either of them off their game. Thomas shot a three-under par round of 67, while Day opened with a solid one-under-par 69 to put himself in contention for a second major title.
