JERSEY CITY, N.J. -- Rickie Fowler is wearing his traditional head-to-toe orange for the final round of The Barclays. He's not the only one.
Jonas Blixt, who is also sponsored by Puma and is paired with Fowler, showed up at Liberty National in the same outfit -- one he actually borrowed from Fowler.
The two had been talking about going all-orange if they ever played together on a Sunday. When Blixt found out they would be, he tried to get Puma to ship him the same outfit, only it wouldn't arrive by their 1 p.m. ET tee time.
"You can't plan for being paired in the final round," said Fowler, who had an extra pair of orange pants and an orange shirt that he left in Blixt's locker.
"It's a little tight," added Blixt, who is carrying an extra pair of pants in his golf bag just in case there should be a wardrobe malfunction.
Both are 7 under and five strokes off the lead.
