Varies depending on the weather. Usually it's shorts of some sort and a t-shirt. If it's cooler or very early in the morning, I might wear hiking type pants. I occasionally wear jeans for practicing, but I find them to be a bit constricting. I recently picked up a pair of tennis-shoe style golf shoes. Usually wear a Red Sox baseball hat, unless they're in playoffs with the Angels when I switch it for my Cubs hat to save some grief.

if it's warm... hemmed bermuda length shorts and a polo of the moisture wicking variety
if it's cooler... docker-type pants and a longsleeved polo or mock turtle, with a fleece vest if necessary
a matching belt
clean underwear
appropriate socks... long for pants, ankle for shorts
my FJ's
a hat, visor, or other headwear
my glasses
absolutely no jewlery, watches, etc.

and I always take off my gun... as that was discussed on another thread.

I wear plus-4's (Americans call them "knickers", in error), with a tam o'shanter cap. Over the years, I have purchased 14 pairs of plus-4's, with colors ranging from solids (like black, white, beige, red) to Scottish plaid (they are wool and were marketed by Payne Stewart Enterprises). In tournaments, I get many favorable comments. Usually, I am the only player wearing them. But, I wear them because I like them. As Payne said, when I put my golfing clothes on, I feel like I am getting ready to play well. If I go out to practice, I wear shorts or pants and look like everyone else. And I feel differently. Also,with plus-4's, I feel tied into the "old-timers", like Gene Sarazen, Bobby Jones, Walter Hagen, Harry Vardon, etc.

Here is a footnote: the day after Payne died in his tragic accident, I went to the golf course and wore black plus-4's, a white and black shirt, a black cap with white shoes and socks. A friend came over to me and said, "You are wearing black. Very appropriate. You did this for Payne, to honor him, didn't you?" He knew. I started wearing them after seeing Payne on TV in the 1984 Las Vegas tournament that he almost won. I thought, "That is a different look in today's world, and he looks pretty good." Within a few months, I saw that the Head Company was selling them on a close-out, and I bought 3 pair for $15 each.

usually a polo with either jeans or shorts and my baseball cap to keep the light out of my eyes. nothing special, no jewlery or glasses and I like to keep my pockets empty. Sometimes when I'm shifting my hips, I'll throw a few balls in my back pocket with a wallet and tighten up my hip turn, but I don't really like clothes that bind.

Depending upon how warm it is, I go with either a nice sweater or vest and khakis and if its warmer I go with a polo shirt and khakis. For a hat I normally wear a baseball cap with some golf-related company on it (Bridgestone, Mizuno, etc...).
Every once in a while I will break out my Tam O-Shanter cap and plus-fours. (what some people refer to as, "knickers", like what Payne Stewart used to wear)
Jeans, t-shirts and cowboy hats are kind of frowned upon by most golf courses.

I have many polos from courses I have worked at over the last year, made by adidas, nike, and under armour, but I really like these new half zip mock polos that I have made by adidas, they are a camillo/sergio style european look. Very lightweight, keeps you cool. Match those with thin tommy hilfiger slacks and its perfect for anywhere between 60-110 degrees. I dont wear shorts on the course....ever. Toss in a white belt to match the white shoes and white cleveland hat, and Im set to go. During the cold I have three different colored long sleeved under armour that I wear if it is chilly. Maybe a wind shirt. I too like to keep my pockets light, I only have my glove in back pocket, a divot repair/ball mark combo tool, and two "zero friction" tees (one for drives, one for par 3's, they are plastic and do not break!!!)

I wear what's appropriate for the weather and the venue. With the bickering that other thread caused, that's all I'm going to say here.

Well, I guess if there was ever an appropriate time for jeans on the course, it would be that one, on the ranch called the cow pasture.

First, (off topic) I had to read this post three times to even get the gist of what you are saying. Please in the future attempt to write so that it is easier to read.

To answer your question, I wear appropriate golf clothing, meaning a collared or mock turtleneck golf shirt and docker type shorts or pants. In the middle of winter I wear jeans on occasion if the course is muddied up.

I try to wear khaki or black shorts or pants and short sleeve polo shirt that looks nice, but if I am just going to the range, anything goes. The kids enjoy dressing the part when we all go as a family, even if it's only to the range.

Usually a thin adidas or nike polo shirt if it's warm, and if it's cold I just wear some underarmour under the thin shirt. I don't like wearing pullovers or sweaters but when it get below 50* out here I usually have to were some sort of thicker clothing. But this week it's been REALLY cold for typical NC weather, so I wear a pair of thin pants under a pair of larger sweatpants, and multiple layers of underarmour under a fleece pullover... gotta do what ya' gotta do

    • I have struggled with the flip as well, and similarly have tried many different swing thoughts and drills to fix it with little success. What has worked for me recently though is this: focusing on keeping my right (trail) wrist hinged from the top of my backswing, as long as possible through impact. I have found that the more specific the instruction, the easier it is for me to carry out the action. In this case, the instruction is simple and direct-  keep your right hand bent back as long as possible. When I tried focusing on a more abstract swing thought like "turn your hips" , I've had a much harder time executing the movement. This video from Eric Cogorno really helped hammer in the concept of keeping the trail wrist hinged:    Who knows if this will work the same wonders for you as it has for me, but it could be something worth considering. Good luck!
    • You know better. So do better. </toughlove>
    • Will keep at it. Obviously what I'm feeling ain't real.
    • Hello. I have Morton's neuroma in my right foot. I'm applying Ice hot with lidocaína and according to my doctor I have to wait for the next month to see any improvements or he has to do an injection. So does any one have experienced this ? Any advice for treatment or how to avoid this and other injuries? Thanks 
    • No width? C’mon Vishal. You can do this. No reason to have that right elbow bending that much. No reason for the club to go back anywhere near that far.
