Campaigners hail the most hirsute Open Golf Championship of the Modern Era

The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has hailed the 147th Open Golf Championship at Carnoustie as the most hirsute of the Modern Era.

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.

However the campaigners say that with leading players such as South Africa’s Eric Van Rooyen and Britain’s Tommy Fleetwood sporting full beards golf has at last embraced the hirsute

The BLF has a special team of beard monitors watching at Carnoustie 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 it looks like the 147th Open is at last embracing beard power on the course.
