Yep, that's a real headline.

Billy Horschel tweeted these photos of his outfits for the 2013 US Open on Wednesday afternoon:

At first I was confused because I thought those were little US Open trophies on his Sunday pants which is, you know, a little arrogant for a guy who, two months ago, didn't have a PGA Tour win.

I thought we were getting our 2013 version of those insane Sunday Ryder Cup shirts in 1999.

I was wrong, though. After a little help from Stina Sternberg (Golf Digest Global Director) and some digging on the Ralph Lauren site (so many strong-bodied male models!) I realized they were little octopi. Have a look for yourself:

So we're basically looking at one of the all-time scenarios on Sunday where a wily-eyed Horschel wearing octopus pants is receiving a US Open trophy from some stodgy USGA official on national television.

Please, God, let it be.

Update: Here's a look at Horschel in the pants.
