Will golf finally ditch its clean-shaven image at Royal Birkdale?

The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that all eyes are on the Open golf at Royal Birkdale over the next few days to see if the sport can finally ditch its clean-shaven Establishment image.

While most major sports including football, cricket and even tennis, have embraced the beard, golf has been much slower with some leading players even looking as if they shave between holes.

On Thursday the usually hirsute Ian Poulter was sporting a trimmed down version of his normal beard and Danny Willett could be seen with proto-hipster style facial hair.

The BLF has a special team of beard monitors watching Royal Birkdale to judge hirsuteness levels.

BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, golf has struggled to accept in some cases that women should play on equal terms so perhaps it is no surprise that it’s also tended towards the pogonophobic. However we hope that Royal Birkdale will point the way to the age of the beard in golf.
