Truth & Rumors: Shorts top trousers in Turkey

With players at the Turkish Airlines World Golf Final allowed to wear shorts for the first time in a major professional event, exactly half the field exercised the option.  And, according to Derek Lawrenson of The Daily Mail, a top-heavy trio of them won their opening round matches:

The other thing of note was the fact, for the first time in a leading professional event, the players were allowed to wear shorts if they chose. Four of the eight-man field took up the option. Intriguingly, all four matches featured one man wearing long trousers and his opponent wearing shorts.

The result of that little game-within-a-game was three to one in favour of the men trying something new.

You say 3-1? We say, "Feel the breeze." And what's that, you ask? Could a little calf confidence positively effect change on the course? We're thinking yes.
