Tim Herron's Masters scripting goes hilariously off script

In the days leading up to each major, several prominent golf apparel companies reveal the "scripting" – meaning, essentially, the outfits – their players will wear each day during the big event. Much thought goes into this scripting and, in recent years, unveiling the scripts has become an ever-larger media deal.
Tim Herron isn't playing the Masters this year, but that didn't stop him from showing off his own scripting for the four days of Masters competition. It takes only a quick peek at Lumpy's wardrobe to know that no one will be mistaking him for Adam Scott or Rickie Fowler.
"Here's what I’ll be wearing during @The_Masters tournament. Tumble dry low, everyone," Lumpy said on Twitter during his grand unveiling on Monday. So let's take a look:
--On Thursday, the Lumpster will be wearing his "Dalai Lama Big Hitter" t-shirt and Minnesota Vikings sweatpants to "pay bills and cross off items on extensive honey 'do' list."
--On Friday he'll be "at home, alone" to "catch up on DVR'd episodes of Duck Dynasty" in his stylish purple robe and slippers.
--On Saturday, Herron's activity list includes "kids swimming & hockey, followed by date night with the wife," for which he'll be decked out in a sweater and jeans.
--And on Sunday, Herron will be at the "water park with the family" in his Guinness tank top and some sporty board shorts.
As is often the case with the fashion-forward, Herron's dramatic choices provoked quite a reaction.
His fellow tour player Steve Flesch commented, "finally a wardrobe that makes sense."
Even Lumpy can't make everybody happy, though. Former Minnesota Twin Kent Hrbek tweeted: "What … No Twins gear?"
