Match Play Shirt of the Day - Thongchai Jaidee

.
That prize had to go to Thongchai Jaidee, for the whimsical candy-striped chemise, pictured at left.

The paratrouper-turned-golf champion, turned candy cane from Thailand won his match in style yesterday, annihilating Ross Fisher at 5 and 4.

Fisher, who won the Volvo World Match Play Championship in Spain last October, was expect to take this match, however as evidenced in Dubai last week, Thongchai Jaidee should not be overlooked.

But speaking again of shirts... there was a profusion of pink on display at Dove Mountain yesterday, indicating that it may be a big color on the PGA Tour this year. The normally neon-clad Ryo Ishikawa however, put aside his trademark crayola colors for an uncharacteristic (but awesome) black on black look. The Japanese teen defeated up-and-coming Australian, Michael Sims in an exciting youth-match. Ryo's birdie on 17 after an impressive fairway bunker shot to about two feet and another birdie on 18 clinched him the win.
