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.

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!

    • I don’t think anything they do will make a meaningful impact on pace of play except keeping players on the clock and enforcing it. Without books they may just spend more time reading the green since they don’t have anything to help them. I just don’t see where players would get the incentive to play faster if they think spending their allot time will help them score better. Many players play fast and enjoy keeping a good pace, but with 125 players out there, there will always be many that take their time. The Masters has banned books, so some players already has some experience with it. Do they play faster there? The greens at Augusta are difficult and it’s a special tournament, so maybe they spend their time even without books. Perhaps not the best tournament to compare with. I came across this article: https://www.golfchannel.com/news/2021-us-open-rory-mcilroy-thinks-green-reading-books-should-be-outlawed-greater-good-game There seems to be a combination of reasons behind the idea, rather than one. I’d maybe think the for-the-greater-good thoughts like Rory’s are more common than pace of play, but also a combination. I like the thoughts about the greater good of the game, and wouldn’t object to the books being outlawed. It puts more focus on reading greens and trusting what you see rather than consult a book. As Erik said, if they don’t putt better today than before the books, is there a reason to keep them?
    • I have 45°, 50° and 56°. Simple. As a short knocker I need the extra slots for the top of my bag.
    • Good greens, perfect weather for golf. Even then -1 gets a tie for 11th. If you add 10mph on to the breeze then par becomes a very good score. I watched about 2 hours early and an hour late on and the quality of golf today was great. 
    • Played my first round away from my home course yesterday and snuck into two birdies on holes 4 (par-3) and 10 (par-4). 🙂  Started composite stats now.
