Fashion on the fairways

Players and fans alike have been cutting impressive figures in the fashions stakes at the MFS Australian Open at Royal Sydney. From the likes of five-time champion Greg Norman, who has always been one of the snappier dressers in world golf, to world No.4 Adam Scott, Brett Rumford and dual champion Aaron Baddeley, fashion is high on the agenda for some of Australia&aposs stars. Not even the heavy deluge, wild winds and chilly temperatures on day one prevented the players from standing out in their designer gear, even if they were forced to wear long sleeves, rain pants and even long johns in the case of US Open champ Geoff Ogilvy. As well as the players, those coming to Royal Sydney to watch the action have also been impressing observers with their fashion sense, either putting together their own outfits or modelling themselves on the likes of Scott, Norman and Baddeley.
