Well, since I spend my whole life now wearing shorts (or swim trunks which double as shorts), I'm all for it.  Those who say that Tiger looks odd in shorts, that's only because you aren't used to seeing him in them.  It's really not much different from anyone else who you only see in a work relationship, especially when the job requires some some sort of distinctive apparel or uniform.  You run into him at the golf course in shorts and you have trouble placing him.  There is nothing inherently professional or unprofessional about shorts on the golf course.  If they had been allowed to wear them all along, we'd think nothing of it.

And I agree with a few of the above comments in reference to things like the Loudmouth atrocities which some players litter the course with.  Just about anything is better than that.

You could say that (the bold) about any and every profession, could you not?  The reason why it's professional to wear a suit and tie as a lawyer is because that's what we've come to accept and expect.

So, because of that, I think you could argue that there IS something inherently professional about pants on the golf course ... precisely because they've always worn them.

I don't agree with that convention either.  I dispute the archaic idea that "the clothes make the man".  I prefer the adage "You can't judge a book by its cover."  Actions make the man (or woman), not apparel.

Can't argue with that. :)

I think this ends it for me.  Fredrik Jacobson wearing a painter's hat, wrist bands,* and short shorts.  I voted no.

*That might be injury related.

I simply don't see any necessity in wearing pants.  Not in regards to the rules of golf.  I don't want to be looking at dudes wearing shorty shorts from the 70's though.

Caddies have been able to wear shorts for nearly 15yrs now.

If they're in Florida, Texas, Arizona, SoCal, Hawaii, or even Ohio next month. . .and its 90* outside with 110% humidity, jeez, let the guys wear shorts if they want.  It just ISN'T a big deal

This all day and twice on Sunday: [URL=http://thesandtrap.com/content/type/61/id/75430/] [/URL] Definitely NOT this though: [URL=http://thesandtrap.com/content/type/61/id/75431/] [/URL] Yes, all of you golfers who ever have worn, or do wear Jorts... STOP it.

I agree. There is NO place for denim jean shorts....on or off the golf course. If you are over the age of 9 years old, please stop wearing jean shorts.

That reminds me how much I hated watching a tourney either last year or earlier this year when it was so humid the pants of all golfers were all drenched in sweat.  It wasn't a good look.

Well that ^^^ is a silly argument, so I guess we agree. ;)  There is no reason the cup is 4 1/4" in diameter either, other than because they decided as much when they figured out this silly game.

There is no reason, and there need not be a reason , other than "because we say so."

Zach is not a good example, he looks like a dork always.....but I'm in favor of shorts if for the only reason that it may open up the slim opportunity that a major may come to the Southwest (playing golf in slacks in mid August in Houston/Dallas is not the most comfortable thing)

    • Day 12 Chipping practice into a net.
    • What length do you play your driver?  Most drivers come standard from the shop well over 45" (45.5, 45.75, etc).  Mine was fitted right at 45"
    • This is a good publicity stunt, though, unlike that Koepka rivalry crap. People have been comparing LD guys to PGA Tour guys forever, now we can actually see one in a competition.
    • I'm a truck driver and every now and then, I stop by a hospital or reference lab and repair a blood bank analyzer.  Well, at least that's how it feels. 😉  I'm actually a field service engineer for a blood bank analyzer company, but I spend as much time driving to accounts as in them.  My 3 1/2 year old pickup has 118k miles on it already. (We drive our own vehicles and get a stipend to make up for it.) I hope to be retired and a full-time golf bum in the not-to-distant future!
    • Saw this a couple of days ago, not sure if it should have its own thread or not, but thought this was a good a place as any to post. I thought for sure there would already be a post on it, but I didn’t see one.     Bryson wrecking hands in long-drive prep Bryson DeChambeau has received some battle scars while training for the Ryder Cup and... Any thoughts on how he’ll do? Embarrass himself or make a decent showing?    I’d assume he’d had the least problem putting them “in the grid,” uncertain how he’ll measure up to their distances. I’d guess he feels that he would make a good showing so as to not embarrass himself…unless it’s all just another publicity stunt for the $40M bonus prize for the whole social media thing
