Yesterday was only the first round and we already had huge golf news out of Torrey Pines. Partly because the Farmers Insurance Open decided to start 24 hours early this year, and partly because Brooks Koepka went full-bore, flat-out Pamela platinum.

There’s either something in the Jupiter water or the PIP is the government-funded psy-op we’ve thought all along. Either way, the move, especially from a guy who has spent the past two seasons as the tour’s own resident Eeyore, sent shockwaves across our crazy little corner of the internet. We don’t know how long it will last or if it will have any material impact on Koepka’s game, but as Brooks himself says, blonds have more fun, and yesterday afternoon, Golf Twitter was a lot of fun.

Brooks Koepka is going to be in the new Game Of Thrones show House Of Dragons. The hair looks great. pic.twitter.com/ODuyIah9zR

We even laughed at some tweets from our [heavy sarcasm alert] dreaded mortal enemies Golf dot com. Nothing brings golf together like a box of Just For Men.

So what convinced Koepka to do it? What magical stroke of inspiration or bout of mad genius told him to take the bleach-blond plunge? We can only speculate…
