The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that the conclusion to the 2016 US Open Golf which saw Dustin Johnson triumph in controversial circumstances after the earlier leader Shane Lowry dropped shots in the final round is a significant marker in the rise of hirsute golf.

The campaigners say that until recently golf was one of the most clean shaven sports with hirsute players a rarity.

However at the weekend not only did Johnson have a full beard so did Lowry who sported an organic beard compared to Johnson’s more styled facial hair.

The BLF says that the interaction between the beard, air currents and the golf club can be an important issue when it comes to the direction and speed of a drive or putt

BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, golf was one of the last bastions of clean shaven sport and we are pleased to see that at last the importance of beard power is being grasped.
