Golf: Star pair escape collating.
TIGER Woods and Greg Norman got away with a breach of European Tour regulations when they both wore collarless shirts for their third rounds of the Open.
Rule 20 of the Tour's regulations covers 'Standard of Dress' and states: 'Collarless, sleeveless shirts of a transparent material/
design or shirts worn outside trousers are NOT acceptable.'
The pair could have been fined pounds 250 for breaching the rules, but escaped without punishment.
Woods was dressed in a black, short-sleeved Nike top with a round neck, while Norman was wearing one of his own label shirts, also without a collar.
Although the Open is part of the European Tour schedule, it seems that the rules on dress were relaxed, and a spokesman said: 'The players must be suitably dressed, but that rule does not apply here.'
Woods and Norman were not the first players in Tour history to flout the rules: Sergio Garcia got into trouble with officials at the Greg Norman International in Australia two years ago, and was asked to wear a shirt with a collar.
