Louis Oosthuizen and Charl Schwartzel got some really bad haircuts

Louis Oosthuizen and Charl Schwartzel naturally wanted to look fresh for the Presidents Cup, which begins Thursday, so they took advantage of a barber offering haircuts to players on the International team.

The South Africans took the guy up on the offer, then immediately regretted it.

"Louis and myself, we were guinea pigs," Schwartzel said, according to the Associated Press. "He went first and basically lost all his hair. And then I figured I just needed a little touch-up on the sides, and I ended up losing all my hair. None of the other guys volunteered to go."

"I didn't work out as well as we thought," Oosthuizen said. "We ended up shaving everything off. Walking into the team room last night, the two of us, we looked like we came straight out of the Army. This morning, waking up and looking at each other, we just laughed."

Ernie Els remarked that the two looked like they had Army-style haircuts. Well, judge for yourself.



Schwartzel has a very similar haircut to Oosthuizen, getting a similar buzz cut.
