Anyone Miss Traditional Golf Attire?


Recommended Posts

Thanks, @ncates00, for a light discussion item during the Mitten's recess from golf.  At 68, I continue with the dated collared shirt, plain shorts/pants, USGA hat "look".  Fashion has passed me by.  If I attempted to wear what Ricky Fowler and others wear, I suspect I would look a bit ridiculous.  I don't miss the old look, it never left as far as I am concerned.

I was actually thinking about this the other day! Most people I see on the course have a polo and khakis/shorts, and a pullover or even a hoodie in the colder months. 

But I think it would be hilarious to show up to golf practice one day in knickers and a sweater and tie. The guys would definitely get a kick out of that!

Go for it!  Make a name for yourself.  Become a high school legend in your own time.  😃

I am sort of easy on this, everything changes with the times. The only things I dislike are wearing a hat backwards and baggy pants. Also not a fan of collarless shirts.

It is obvious you have never played with me on a day the driver isn't cooperating. I see parts of the course the head greens keeper didn't know existed.

I have noticed quite a few ladies wearing yoga pants/tanks or super short shorts/skirts to play golf. I personally think that is inappropriate. My club sent out a newsletter last week to remind members of the dress code but I am not sure if they will really enforce it. 
I also think some guys are wearing pants that are waaayyyyyy too tight, they cannot even walk right...pleated slacks are a bit baggy but it is better than tight imo...

My normal outfit is a collared T-shirt and either formal pants (cotton/khaki) or khaki type knee length shorts (rarely).  I believe this is what people should wear all the time.  I really dislike what I see on a lot of these youtube videos of people golfing in track pants, jeans etc.

I’m 66 but I try to stay contemporary and well dressed. Flat front slimmer profile slacks( no shit stoppers or hip huggers), a nice silky polo( no double knit tit hugger), a normal cap( no flat brim gang member), and a dressier leather shoe( no foam boardwalk strollers).

    • They could leave the Masters bubble and focus on total career achievements, but maybe that deviates from the intention. Eventually they may have to choose players who only won once. «First on the tee, Patrick Reed!». Or maybe they’ll be off with the whole thing. There aren’t that many multiple winners these days. Phil, Bubba and Tiger are the only ones with wins this millennia.
    • I’ve had my Leupold GX-2 since 2010. Don’t remember the price, but perhaps around $200-300. Not a big investment if divided per year or round. I’ve spent way more on balls. It’s not a replacement for the course guide, which I always want to carry if they got one. The rangefinder is a distance measuring tool and doesn’t show the layout of a hole. Many courses around here doesn’t have much in ways of markers. Typically 200, 150 and 100 meters. So the on-course aid hasn’t been affected by the tools. I used to have to study the guide, look for one of those three markers and try to walk off and guesstimate distances. Now I can focus on my approach, where to aim and quickly get the distances I need. I play faster and better with it.
    • Yeah, @iacas, here’s another article echoing the last one you posted: CDC Studies 'Breakthrough' COVID Cases Among People Already Vaccinated COVID-19 vaccines are highly effective but don't always provide perfect protection. Some...  
    • Lesson coming up on Thursday 4/15: After 5-6 weeks of really good ball striking (by my standards), full swing has regressed. After my last lesson, I had some backswing and transition weight/pressure shift feels that worked really well. I was hitting almost everything with center-face contact (within tolerance of a mid-handicap player), AoA and launch angles were all in the right window, ball was going where I aimed it, shot shape was reliable, distance improved. Then in my last round suddenly I had no idea where the ball was going to go. I have a little deal with myself, that if I can get my index below 10 and keep it there, I am getting fitted for a new driver, so I am a little miffed at what I experienced last round. I doubt there was a sudden change (maybe there was, who knows), but what I suspect is that there was some slower, less noticeable regression that was going on, that finally transitioned into a significant on course problem. Putting and short game are still good enough (nothing special), so that at least I am not losing any strokes with these elements. I've gone back to basics for now with practicing, and I don't want to over-self-diagnose any issues and use a shotgun approach to problem solving, so happy that I have a lesson this week to figure out what's gone wrong.
