Another reason to wear pants--bugs.  My area has a ton of bugs and they seem to hang out at the golf courses regardless of time of day.  Have yet to find a bug repellent that works on them, and I do not like using it anyway since I am not a fan of spraying chemicals on my body.

Usually shorts, but I have a couple light-colored, light-material pants I might try this year, mostly to avoid having to try to apply sunscreen to hairy legs.  I have some lightweight, just off-white

It also depends on the environment.  If you're out in glaring sun in a dry climate (like, e.g., southern California), a lot of your heating comes from direct radiation from the sun.  Shading yourself

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

Question:   Several of the posts staed that pants make you feel more like a professional golfer.   Why do you want to feel like a professional?



Based on the images and video in several other threads, most of the teaching professionals wear shorts, so maybe people like to pretend they're on the PGA Tour?

Like the OP I Iive in the Houston area and it's shorts for me.  I'm not bothered much by mosquitoes and don't mind the feel of the sun on my skin.  I'll change to pants when it gets into the low to mid 60s.

We only get 5 maybe 6 months of golf and only 3 were its nice enough to wear shorts so I prefer to wear them. Will wear pants if required.

Shorts if it is warm enough (anything above 70* F for me).  I wear "technical" fabrics with both pants and shorts and shorts are cooler once it gets too warm.  Even have a few pairs of seersucker shorts for those really hot and humid days.  For any sort of charity event or company outing I'll usually switch back to pants though since I'm now on "company time."

Pants just look nicer to me. I've always worn shorts in the summer before but that was because I never had any actual golf pants with all this ultra breathable material. I just bought some of those climalite adidas pants so I plan on trying them out in the summer to see how it goes.

I have 3 pairs of golf pants that I have in my rotation...

1x Black and 1x Gray pair of Oakley Take 2 pants.

Then for the colder weather, 1x Black pair of Under Armour cold gear pants - that are water resistant and wind proof - but look like standard golf pants.  Great for colder weather.  I looked for a photo of these on the Under Armour site, but it looks like they are no longer selling them?  But they are awesome and highly recommended if you can find them.

I usually wear golf pants as long as it is in the low 70's or colder.  Once it gets into the mid 70's and higher... I go with shorts.  For golf shorts I have Dunning, Nike, Tommy Bahama, Banana Republic and others that I rotate through.  I really like the Oakley Take 2 golf pants, and will probably pick up some of their shorts for this Summer's golf attire?

Shorts were a must for me a couple years back; I was living in Guam.  However, I'm now back in MD and pants are a required part of my early and late season wardrobe.  I normally shop for sales on my golf attire.  I recommend Marshall's, TJ Maxx, Kohls and Target.  I've also scored quite a few deals at a couple of the outlet malls in the area; Champion makes fairly decent, and affordable, golf wear.

If you have to wear Oakleys pants minus shirts, I'm out. That's probably not within the dress code.

Hahhaha... I found it interesting that their model isn't wearing a shirt?  I guess they want you to see the way the pant fits against your waist??  No idea, but they are pretty good golf pants.

    • I had a weird experience with Peacock this morning.  My YTTV isn't working well for some reason (been an issue the past few days), so I used the app.  I signed up for free Peacock, watched Torrey on my laptop but couldn't cast to the TV.  So I installed the app on my TV but when I logged in there, I could only follow the featured group.  Is anyone else watching it (not right now, just in general) on free peacock?

    • Day 115.  I had a good idea this morning -- rather than checking that I'm only getting back to "45 degrees before parallel" on the backswing, I should exaggerate a shortened backswing (not absurdly so;  I'm not chipping) .  I did ten minutes worth of my usual routine with this in mind for the rehearsals (again, slow, or at least it feels slow).  Didn't get footage because of the room setup, and it was an 8-iron not a 7-iron, but I did get some practice in doing this.
