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.

I have some pairs of the adidas ClimaCool pants and I can attest that they breathe very nicely and wouldn't hesitate to wear them in the summer here (it gets 100F+ and dry).

I used to be a shorts guy (for golf) in high school and early 20s but not so much now for whatever reason.

That is only true until you hit your first shot! Then, sadly, we are reminded that we are not pro's!

If it is a round during the week after work than pants for me. Normally I am with clients and want to keep the professional appearance. Plus...I wear the Haggar Cool 18 as work pants everyday so I just throw on a golf shirt and go. Weekend rounds if the temps are decent I will wear shorts, the same Haggar Cool 18. Very nice overall wear and fit.

They do?  I've seen lots of photos of Tiger wearing shorts when he's not playing on tour.

Rick, I think you two are saying the same thing...?

Let's bring some dignity to the game and wear pants!  Shorts (and skirts) are for girls and women.

I prefer to wear pants but on the hottest days I just can't do it.  I do feel "more formal" and "more like a pro" and some how think that helps (certainly doesn't hurt) - especially in the concentration and dedication to each shot department.

I'd like to find some of the new breathable fabrics for less then the golf stores sell them.  I certainly can't go around paying $60 for several pairs of pants.

I usually wear shorts because I can't handle the heat/humidity.  But... I also can't handle the sun/sunburn.  I'm thinking of investing in some lightweight pants --- then maybe, I'll ditch the shorts for good.

I'd actually like to get cool long-sleeve shirts for summer too --- help with the sunburn!  ...just bought a lifeguard-style straw hat to provide a bit more shade --- too windy to use much though...

Yeah, seriously. I usually wear shorts, and I recently got two pairs of reallllly nice Izod shorts for 35 dollars total. They are the nice material that Nike and Adidas usually makes, it's like the real smooth kind. Not sure of the actual material. The MSRP on the shorts was 52 dollars!

I love outlets!

    • It is insane this is still being talked about. I read that people are saying he was the winner. Crazy!
    • Day 109.  Round of 16 of my club's match play.  I lost 3&2 but made a new friend.  There's this issue that happens to me at this course we played (not our home course due to availability of tee times).  It's come up a few times, but ... my second shot on the first three holes, plus my tee shot on the par-3 4th, were horrible.  Seems to happen to me I hit a few bad early shots, despite getting to the course, stretching, and warming up.  Despite this, still had sub-10 handicap baseline strokes gained: approach.  And for the first time, sub-10 handicap baseline SG:driving.  I also did some "miss the green" short game shots from what should be easy positions today... did that four times, totally inexcusable. I sank some long putts even but missed some short ones.  Putting was sub-20 handicap level today, which was cool.  Gotta pull it all together at some point again. 
    • Day 3 June 12 - Went to the driving range to get used to a new wedge. I had a wedge fitting yesterday and needed to find out if I could hit touch shots with it in addition to the full shots. 25 shots with it. Done. Then went on to work on getting through the shot with my irons. I need to get my weight forward and stay on plane through the shot better. Why is it so easy to stay on plane with my 5W? I can return that on the original shaft plane and smoke shot after shot. But why is it so much more difficult with my irons? I need to take a video and look at this. I need to look at what I'm doing with my 5W and move that over to my irons.
    • I’ll keep it simple and short... my draw bias ZX hybrids I can’t hit, they just go left.  I’m thinking about buying the ZX5 4-iron and trying to figure out 14th club.... At Genny I rarely have to hit either hybrid.... but longer courses I’d be between 3-wood and 5-iron. (The 4-iron is a 6-8 week wait).    I usually don’t mind a hybrid (don’t mind hitting the ball high)... I’m looking basically at a few options... It’s not exactly easy to bend the lie of a hybrid but thought about flatten the lie to reduce the hook a bit. Get a Pro model hybrid. Or get a 5 or 7 wood...  Thoughts?    Yes I’m down to a 1.5 handicap, and shouldn’t really need equipment help... but I’m an adult and don’t know everything.
    • Similar to last  year I am looking to break 90 and then eventually 85 this year. My previous round was a 92 and I am improving.
