Bill Murray made a fashion statement at a recent golf tournament in a way only he can, wearing checkered Pabst Blue Ribbon pants and a Caddyshack T-shirt.
The actor showed up this week to Jacksonville wearing an outfit that would have made outlandish golfer Payne Stewart proud, showing off his blue-and-red checkered pants and a shirt with a picture of the Dalai Lama holing a golf club with the words “Big Hitter” across the chest. (For those who don’t get the reference, Bill Murray ad-libbed a story in the movie Caddyshack about caddying for the Dalai Lama and being promised total enlightenment on his deathbed in lieu of a tip).
Bill Murray has been known for his strange fashion choices and unpredictable antics, including dropping in on parties in New York City uninvited or joining games of kickball in Central Park.
But this time Murray’s attire seemed appropriate. He is in Florida for the Murray Brothers Caddyshack Charity Golf Tournament, though his outfit was actually for a different tournament, the Pond Charity Golf Classic.
Money raised from this weekend will go to the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation, which help public safety organizations along Florida’s First Coast.
“You meet a lot of people, you meet thousands of people and you hear stories of what life is like for people. Some people have it worse than others and if you’re doing okay, you’re sort of obliged to connect with other people and do something, whatever you can,” Bill Murray said.

Fans will have to wait and see what Bill Murray will wear to the Caddyshack Tournament itself, but it’s going to be hard to top the Pabst Blue Ribbon golf pants.
