Nautical looks have been in style for quite some time now—we're betting you own more than one striped item in your closet—but golfer Billy Horschel took the look to a new level at the 2013 U.S. Open.

The fashion forward athlete caused quite the stir at the annual sporting event in a pair of head-turning octopus print pants. Horschel, who is sponsored by Ralph Lauren's golf line and tweeted a sneak peek at the designer fashion he would wear to the sporting event, took to the social networking site again on Sunday to show off his seafaring style.

"Well here they are! The highly anticipated highly controversial....Octopus pants!" he tweeted,along with a picture of the much buzzed about trousers.

But Horschel wasn't the only golfer to make a style statement on the green. Rickie Fowler was hard to miss in head-to-toe orange, a nod to his his alma mater's—Oklahoma State University—color. Meanwhile Ian Poulter went for a slightly more traditional, but no less attention-grabbing look, with blue-and-pink plaid pants paired with a berry colored visor and shoes accented in the same color. 

What do you think of these golfers' bold fashion statements? Par for the course or a hole in one?
