Once the person wearing pants starts sweating it will look like they wet their pants and therefore they will look more immature.

To answer your first question, I normally wear shorts in the summer... out here where I am it'll be around 105-110 in the middle of summer.  However, I've got some lightweight pants and they are pretty comfortable in the heat as well.  As far as cheaper alternatives, check out Target... they have C9 golf pants which are very similar to the ones made by Nike/UA/Adidas/etc.  These are the ones that I have, and like I said, they are pretty good especially for $30.  I also picked up a similar pair at Golfsmith on clearance for $20 made by Lynx... If I remember correctly they were around $40 originally.

Usually I wear pants because most of the courses I play at frown upon shorts.

But here in Japan during summer, it is so humid, no wind, that whenever I have the chance, I'll wear shorts. (or to the surprise of iacas, long shorts).

It is true that the pants made with fancy new fabrics from Adidas or Nike and the likes are very nice and let air circulate, though.

Pants all year round unless the humidity is above 95%, which is rare here in northern california. I find that it keeps the legs actually cooler, rather than having sun beat down on them. The key is finding pants that fit correctly and aren't too thick.

Shorts are for boy scouts fellas. Men wear pants. Why do the pros wear the pants? Because they're there to get business done, not have a bunch of beers in a backyard picnic.

No, the pros wear the pants because they are required to. Shorts are for the real men. I don't go to the golf course to get business done I go there to enjoy a round of golf.

I'm stunned at the number of people here who say they wear slacks in the summer.  I work as a starter and I can count the number of players in long pants on one hand most days at my home course.  Nobody I know plays in slacks during the summer.  Most start wearing shorts the first semi-warm day in March or April and continue to do so until October.

The percentages here in this thread and the percentages I see in real life on the course aren't even in the same ball park.

What do you think is the reason for the disparity?

  1. International influence - golf outside the U.S. is played  in more formal setting?
  2. Higher concentration of lower handicap golfers on TST who play as the pro's do?
  3. Sense of superiority by those who wear pants to squelch those who wear shorts from coming forward?
  4. Course culture at your courses is more relaxed?

I see most golfers on muni and semi-private courses wearing shorts in the summer.  Only time I see majority in slacks is at exclusive country clubs which discourage members and their guests from wearing shorts.

We wear shorts practically year round here. You can occasionally spot someone with pants on. Probably riding in a cart too.

You wear pants here right now, and you may get laughed at by some, but hey, to each his own.

    • Most of my rounds are at 4,200 ft, at sea level that 3W is probably 15ish yards shorter.  I’m not as long as it sounds, unfortunately.  I would utilize the 3W on more than just 14 tee shots (2nd shot on par 5s, choke down for some 190-230 shots, hit some low punch shots). I’m certainly not saying you’re thinking about anything wrong (as far as your game and selection), I was hung up on the “terrible option” comment.  I really like my driver and hybrid as well, if this were a 6 club challenge I’d swap out the 3W for the driver and hybrid all day.  But alas, we only get 5 clubs.
    • The handicap season is over. You should have told him you can warm your balls with whatever you want 😜
    • On my home course I’d take driver, 3-hybrid, 7-iron, SW, and putter. Driver is debatable, because I only hit it 3-4 times per round, so I could probably bring a 3W and drop 3-hybrid and rearrange the irons/wedges (3W, 5-iron, 8-iron, SW, putter). But driver gives me the best chance to score well on the par-5 holes (longest is 505 yards), and I wouldn’t want to give that up, since these holes are where I make birdie most often. 
    • Say a prayer for our state: From M-Live: Michigan reported 15,385 new COVID-19 cases, about 7,693 a day, and 351 deaths on Tuesday, Dec. 7 and Wednesday, Dec. 8. Over the last seven days, Michigan reported an average of 7,203 new, reported cases and 108 new deaths. These are up from 5,980 new cases per day and 71 deaths a week ago. State data, last updated Friday, Dec. 3, shows 65.8% of residents 12 and older have received at least a single dose of COVID-19 vaccine. The state is now seeing the greatest number of hospitalized COVID-19 patients since the start of the pandemic. Previous highs were set in the spring of 2020.
    • Day 130: Cold and drizzly outside so continued working on cupped wrist backswing feel to keep club from going too much inside, and also working on transition move. Transition feels good in slow rehearsal, and okay striking balls at slow speed, but hasn’t translated to 100% speed well yet.
