I never see anyone with those flashy shirts the pros wear.

it's all about the pants, not the shirt

There available.  You can buy the same shirts that Tiger, Rory, Sergio, Ricky Fowler and others wear on tour.  They just cost a LOT of money!

And they're off the rack unlike our PGA Pro's

My spending cap for golf shirts is about 25 bucks, so it's real unlikely anybody will ever see me wearing one.

I wouldn't want to wear one, I'm not a fan of sports brand clothing, I like to dress smart casual on and off the course, anything I wear on the course I could wear off it! In fact I don't own any clothing by Nike, or any sport/golf brand! Although I do own a few galvin green winter garments but even they could be worn off the course!

Those exclamation marks...

 

Seems like that'd be pretty awful to golf in, to be honest; not a fan of sweating my ass off in thick cotton clothing: https://www.google.com/search?q=smart+casual&safe=off&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=5ovYU9KSIZS1yATTkYGgCw&ved=0CAgQ_AUoAQ&biw=1600&bih=775

Ha sorry about the exclamation marks, I've tried to cut them out but they creep back in! I have to move my thumb a whole inch to reach the comma,
Anyway, smart casual, as in pants/slacks and cotton polo, and/or lightweight sweater, I'm guessing you've never been to the uk? Nobody sweats there ass off, our summer only last for 2 weeks, the rest of the time our climate pretty much sucks!

Ahh that's right, the UK doesn't get super hot for very long if at all. I do go for the cotton shirts once mid/late-October rolls around, though; I think they look better with my collection of argyle sweater vests and it's not too hot to wear them.

@Hardballs You type the comma with your thumb?  Odd.  

And i believe that you want the words 'their ass', not  'there ass' when describing the effects of UK heat waves, if any.  Finally,  i much prefer cotton, or cotton/linen, pants (trousers) for hot weather golf.   Except for modern sun-blocking synthetic fabrics, which i do wear for the protection, i generally avoid synthetics and go cotton for shirts.  And long sleeved only.  Can wear short sleeves if also use arm-condoms,  as seen on many lady Asian  pros.

I just think the shirts look ridiculous.
post #12 of 22

I don't buy that much golf-specific stuff. I've got a couple of shirts, but most of the time I wear the exact same dress shirt and pants that I work in. I put on my shoes, roll up my sleeves and play.

I have a few golf specific shirts.

I do not pay the outrageous prices for them though.  Luckily for me, my wife is a bargain hunter.

 

Recently she has come home with 3 golf shirts for me lately.

 

1.  A Nike dri-fit she got for $20 at Ross

2.  A Chaps shirt made from a similar material for $12 from Ross

3.  A sweet Polo golf shirt from Dillards for $24 on clearance

 

These are the deals that you can wait for and get nice golf shirts that don't break the bank.

It will be a cold day in hell before I drop $70+ on a freaking shirt.  Any shirt.  Especially since the 3 nice shirts mentioned above didn't cost that much combined.

I've said this in another thread somewhere here but I never pay full price for Nike Golf shirts. I have a Nike Outlet less than a mile from my job and the most I've spent on a shirt there was $26.00. I normally pay anywhere from $14-$26.00 plus tax. I've also gotten a few Champion golf shirts from Target in the past. The only thing I pay full price for is shoes most of the time.

I can't help but buy Nike, Under Armour and Adidas polos because they fit me perfectly. I wear them damn near year round and to work as well. The dress in our office is business casual and nothing is more comfortable for 12 hours a day than dress slacks and a polo in my opinion. If I hit the range or course after work, I'm simply changing out my shoes and sometimes slacks for my Adidas Clima-Lite Tech Tour pants/shorts.

I would never pay $70 for a polo per MSRP tags though. Go to the outlet stores, search online and check out Golf Galaxy and Golf Smith's clearance racks. I've walked into Golf Galaxy and checked out a new Nike shirt that I liked only to see that it was $70 and I just laughed and moved on. A week later I found that same shirt on clearance for $24.99 with a red sticker and my size (XL) as well. Never pay full price unless you like giving your money away. There's always a cheaper price somewhere, you just have to look.

I see all the reports about the golf industry's troubles but feel part of the problem is of it's own making. For instance, check out the vast number of golf shoe models Nike offers . Not different color options but models. They must have some creative people on the payroll just to come up with descriptions of all the various models. Yet nobody seems willing to pay the full retail price but every year a whole slew of new shoe technology is discovered. Am I missing something?

I see what you're saying but Nike is a shoe company afterall. I dont see any issues at all with the different models of shoes that Nike, Footjoy, or Adidas offers. There's nothing wrong with giving the consumer a choice. What the average 20 year old golfer buys probably looks crazy to the average 50-60 year old golfer.

I'm not the kind of guy that'll wear something really really flashy... and I didn't really like polo shirts (even though I had several in my closet) until I picked up a few Izod golf (tamer colors and patterns) that were on closeout at Macy's close to me. I found I really like them and picked up some more the next time I found myself in an Izod outlet store... I'm more of a fan of the performance fabric shirts than the pique polos made of cotton...

 

But I won't wear wild colors... that's just not my style. And the prices... good grief, who wants to pay $90 for a Nike golf shirt from Golfsmith? Not me... so I'll try to find it cheap.
