PHOTO: Mark Calcavecchia’s bacon print pants are great

A guy won a golf tournament in wacky pants this weekend, and it wasn't John Daly. It was another former Open champion, Mark Calcavecchia.

Calc won the Champions Tour's Principal Charity Classic in Iowa on Sunday for his fourth win on the 50-plus circuit, and he did it wearing bacon-print pants. That's right: pants with pictures of bacon on them.

Typically, Calcavecchia doesn't wear pictures of food on his clothing, at least the threads the public can see. So how did he discover the power of bacon pants?

Bacon Mania is, as you might guess, a bacon-themed festival in Des Moines, Iowa, where the tournament was played. They turned Calc onto the pants and a belt that looks like a strip of bacon, which he wore in Round 1 on Friday. He went to normal khakis on Saturday, but with a chance to win on Sunday, he went to the tasty look for the final round.

"All of a sudden I grabbed the lead and I'm like, 'I've got to wear them. I'll give them one more shot,'" Calcavecchia said after the win.

Davis Love III, one of Calc's friends, had a chance to take the title on Sunday, but made a crucial double bogey on the 17th hole to clear the stage. Headed to Memphis to play in the FedEx St. Jude Classic, Love took to Instagram to wonder if he should don some similar trousers.

Hard to take getting beat by a guy in bacon pants! Guess I need some rib pants at FedEx Memphis!
