Can Sergio Garcia win Beard of Spring as well as the Masters?
The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that golfer Sergio Garcia faces a double challenge as he is on the course for the final round of the US Masters. Not only is he looking to win the Masters title he is also contending for Beard of Spring
The on-line poll is now open and the winner will be revealed on Easter Sunday.
The campaigners say the Beard of Spring is not about beard style or length but about the impact the beard wearer has made in the public eye.
BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, despite the views of Peter Alliss beards are an increasing feature of modern golf. A Masters win for Garcia would not only underline that but could propel him to the Beard of Spring title too.
