Boo Weekley’s beard is out of control, but the Santa Claus look works


Boo Weekley could be confused this week for a vacationing Santa Claus in Hawaii.

Weekley, the three-time PGA Tour winner, is making his 2016 debut at the Sony Open in Honolulu, and he showed up to Waialae Country Club this week with a beard that looks more like St. Nick than St. Boo.

Golf Digest's Dave Shedloski took a picture of Weekley's beard and shared it with the world.

We've pretty well established at this point that Weekley, who has been a pioneer of sorts in wearing camo on the PGA Tour, doesn't give two hoots what anyone thinks of him and, often times, would prefer fishing to making his living. So maybe this "Duck Dynasty"-inspired look is just an extension of that mindset.

However, it could also be the signal of a beard arms race on the PGA Tour, with Shedloski also sharing a picture of Canadian Graham DeLaet's burgeoning beard.

Between the two of them, they probably have more scruff on their face now than Jordan Spieth has shaved off in his lifetime. And, if Bray Wyatt needs to expand his WWE family, he now knows where to turn: the golf course.
