CM – Mullet spurs Marc Leishman, Cameron Smith on until Saturday 63 at Zurich Classic


Before the third round on Saturday, the Australian marched to the first tee at TPC Louisiana, wearing a « mullet » wig with Jay Powell’s « The Mullet Song » echoing across the property.

« I did thought about doing the first tee shot with [the wig] but it was way too windy. There was no way I could have done it, « said Leishman.

Leishman works with Cameron Smith, who wears arguably the most famous mullet on the PGA Tour, and said he ordered the wig from Amazon last week: » I had expected to pay a lot more for it, but I was determined to do it, « he laughed.

Although he wanted to surprise Smith with the wig on the first tee, he decided against it because » he was afraid that I’m stuck, « said Smith. The stunt seemed to keep the Australian duo relaxed on day 3 of the Zurich Classic.

Leishman « lightened the mood » by wearing a mullet

The team bonded for six birdies through nine holes and ended the day 9-under-63 for their share of second place, just one stroke behind front runners Louis Oosthuizen and Charl Schwartzel.

Though the wig and walk-up music were a huge hit for the team and fans, Leishman said he likely won’t be replaying to start the fourth round. « [We have to] focus on that first tee, » he said.
