Jason Day’s eye-catching Masters outfits proved a bit too much for those in charge at Augusta National.

Day acknowledged Saturday that he had been asked by Augusta National to remove the vest he had worn during play on Friday. The garish-looking Malbon-brand vest was nowhere to be seen a day later, apparently at the behest of the course.

“They asked me to take it off — the vest off yesterday,” Day said. “Respectfully, you do that because it’s all about the tournament here, and I understand that. I respect the tournament. That’s what we’re here to do is try and play and win the green jacket.”

Day toned down his outfit for Saturday, though his pants were once again reminiscent of the ones that went viral on Thursday. Those, it would seem, are not a problem in the eyes of Augusta National.

Day shot four-over par on Saturday, moving him to eight-over on the tournament. Perhaps he needs the noisy outfits in order to play his best.
