At the Copa Sedgefield, it’s tropical day at the Wyndham Championship

Expect to see a lot of Hawaiian shirts, rejected Casual Friday apparel and more Parrothead gear than one can stand to bear on Saturday at the Wyndham Championship.

The tournament is inviting fans to dress up like they would for a tropical vacation. The fan judged at 4 p.m. to be the best dressed wins a seven-night Wyndham vacation stay. The runner-up gets a three-night vacation and the bronze winner gets a two-night stay at the Wyndham Bonnet Creek Resort in Orlando.

Tournament officials say acceptable gear includes "scuba gear, sarongs, grass skirts, Hawaiian shirts, shorts, beach hats and sandals." So that means thongs, booty shorts, Speedos and excessive coats of spray tan are NOT?
