One of the biggest storylines from Day 1 of the 2024 Masters Tournament? A pair of pants.

Following a weather delay at Augusta National Golf Club, the group of Tiger Woods, Jason Day and Max Homa teed off late Thursday afternoon. But it wasn't the start of Woods' chase for a historic sixth green jacket that had golf fans talking.

Instead, much attention was paid to the pants Day was sporting. The 36-year-old Australian, who is sponsored by Malbon Golf, went with a pair that looked similar to parachute pants.

The windy conditions in Augusta, Georgia, made the attire stand out even more.

The pants sparked many jokes from fans on X, formerly known as Twitter:

Malbon Golf seemed to respond to discourse surrounding Day's pants in a post on X.

"Looks like that time for folks to get mad over clothes again," the post read.

Day is seeking his first major championship as he makes his 11th Masters appearance. He's come close to claiming the green jacket a few times, finishing tied for second in 2011, third in 2013 and tied for fifth in 2019. He tied for 39th place last year.

Day was even through his first 13 holes before play was suspended due to darkness, tying him with several others for 32nd on the leaderboard. We'll see if he sports the same kind of pants when the first round resumes Friday morning.
