Nitties handles the competition in mustache contest

The most heated off-course competition of the year on the Tour happened on Tuesday night in Utah.

In what has become an annual tradition at the Utah Championship, Aussie James Nitties won the mustache contest at the tournament, according to the PGA Tour.

Nitties' mustache was voted best of the 18 competitors in Mustache Madness at Willow Creek CC. Nitties combined a goatee and chin-strap to form a "J" on his face.

"I've always been pretty good at making an idiot of myself, so I chose a look that I didn't think anybody else would do. And it paid off," Nitties said.

Considering the parity in major championships, it may come as little surprise that Nitties is the fifth different player to win in the five-year history of the contest.
