This morning CNG takes a look back at some of the most egregious green jacket pairings in Masters history. It should come as no surprise that most are born of the 1980s and 90s.
Cringe and enjoy...
Berhard Langer - 1985
Langer went monochromatic red on Sunday in 1985. This is now essential viewing for one Mr. Rickie Fowler.
Larry Mize - 1987
Larry Mize broke Greg Norman's heart on the 11th hole, the second hole of a sudden death playoff in 1987. Mize's purple ensemble showed us not even he anticipated his win.
Nick Faldo - 1989
Nick Faldo paired his first green jacket with a rather heavy looking wollen. We're not sure what those green accents are -- vertical bowties?
Nick Faldo - 1990
Faldo followed up 89's jumper with another spectacularly odd choice in this transformer-esque golf-man knit. Bizzare.
Ben Crenshaw - 1995
Ben Crenshaw's emotional win at the 1995 Masters is one of CNG's all-time favorites came on the heels of the death of his long time coach, Harvey Penick. We were almost as emotional over this oddly patterned polo.
Nick Faldo - 1996
Nick Faldo reigns supreme in this look back on poor green jacket pairings, and with good reason. Vertical stripes just don't work unless they're of the pin variety, or in an olde-timey jail setting.
