Bad fashion just keeps getting badder at the Bad Pants Open There were some wild-looking pants on display at the 15th annual edition of the charity golf tournament that is a fall Houston tradition. Golfers at the Clubs of Kingwood on Wednesday showed up in a wide array of styles, from western wear with black cowboy hats and chaps to Richard Simmons-look-alikes in short shorts and Afros. But it's all for a good cause. This year’s tournament raised $365,000 for the Newborn Center at Texas Children's Hospital, bringing the total to $2 million since the tournament began in 1997.
