Billy Ho’s RLX gear is as colorful as his personality. It is almost as if there were an unspoken contract between Billy and his golf apparel sponsor; Billy gets to emote freely on the golf course if Ralph Lauren gets to ham up his golf apparel for equal amounts of attention. The pairing works well. As for Billy, fans have come to learn that he is not afraid to speak his mind nor visibly react to shots or course conditions as a way of expressing himself while playing.

And of course, no one can forget Billy famously wearing Octopus pants to a U.S. Open as well. Other notable prints Billy has worn include Camouflage-Frog and Slithery Snake; which resemble exacty their titles. Billy is maybe the only golfer on tour that could claim to compete regularly with the stylings of John Daily’s Loudmouth apparel.
Thus wen Sunday at the PGA Championship at Whistling Straits rolled around, golf fashion oglers were thrilled to learn that Billy Horschel would be wearing another eccentric pair of RLX pants; this time covered in Shark print. Social media went wild with the announcement. Not that fans should have expected any less from Billy after his neon colored fashion trends for the week. However, even though Billy was starting the day outside the winner circle spot light, 7 shots off of the lead, his pants still made him the center of attention.
Prints that are fun, new, and different tend to inspire reactions that are equally bold. Love it or hate it, RLX and Billy Horschel are teamed together to take the fashion spotlight on a regular basis. Billy will be heard, and Ralph Lauren will be seen. For the closing of the last major of the year, Billy wore pants that a alluded to another great in the game, Aussie Greg Norman. With the inspiration of Norman’s famous shark logo in the air, and fans fussing over Billy’s choice of pants before the day even began, it seemed fitting that the day of excitement would then conclude with an Aussie win by Jason Day.
“Here, Here!” to shark pants and a week full of exciting fashion by RLX and Billy Ho. We look forward to seeing what’s next.WHAT'S YOUR REACTION?
