Ashworth releases 'no pants' campaign for pro golfers

Ok, this is pretty funny.

Ashworth gets Justin Rose, Justin Leonard, Retief Goosen, Sean O'Hair and Johnson Wagner to show the PGA Tour why it should let tour pros wear shorts for tournaments.

They humorously bring up some pretty good points about why pros shouldn't have to wear pants -- too hot in the summer, restrictive, women don't have to, etc.

I'm not totally sure how I feel about this. On one hand, I get it. I don't want to wear pants when it's 115 degrees in Atlanta at the PGA Championship any more than any of these guys do.

On the other hand, I've always thought it was kind of cool that PGA Tour pros are the only golfers in America who wear pants on a regular basis. It kind of separates them from collegiate golfers and amateurs.

Also, I don't know that America is prepared to see John Daly's bare legs.

Favorite line: "Might as well call me Johns-ain Bolt."
