WOBURN, England – Shanshan Feng turned heads with more than her run up the leaderboard Friday at the Ricoh Women’s British Open.
Her spotted cow pants were a hit in England.
“Everybody loves the cow pants,” Feng said. “I hear so many compliments.”
Feng said the design is specially made for her by Pro Simon, a Taiwanese brand, but she senses a demand for them.
“I’m trying to see if they will sell them to the public,” Feng said. “So many people like them. A lot of players like them.”
Feng also likes the coffee cup pants Pro Simon did for her, and the pants with lightning bolts.
The lightning bolt pants would work for Feng this week, with Feng continuing her bolt up the leaderboard at Woburn Golf Club. Her 4-under-par 68 Friday left her at one shot behind the leader, Mirim Lee.
Feng, 26, is seeking to win her fifth LPGA title, her second major. She became the first player from China to win a major championship when she claimed the LPGA Championship four years ago. She’ll be headed to Rio de Janeiro in three weeks with the Chinese Olympic team.
