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!

    • No downside. Simply used for the sound/feel and a little for weight in some cases. There is no getting it out but you shouldn't have any need to. Most golfers prefer the sound after hotmelt. 
    • The guy, the father, with the most heartfelt family that runs out and enthusiastically greets him on the 18th green!  That's who I want to win. I'm a softie on Father's Day who loves that scenario.
    • Played Oakhaven Golf Club yesterday 70.9-122-6608. Shot 89, 43 front 46 back. It rained the entire time during the front 9 but held it together reasonably well. One penalty stroke on the par 5 6th after rinsing my approach shot that came off the heel a bit and was about 8 yards short of the carry. Got up and down from my drop to save a bogey. Stopped for a few beers at the turn and let the rain pass through. Cleared up for a beautiful back 9. The back is completely different than the front and much tighter, water and tree lined. No penalty shots on the back, but got behind trees twice where I had to punch out. I feel I am on the cusp of another breakthrough with my game in the right direction. I have noticed as I begin to tire late in a round, some tendencies start easing back in causing me to push driver or minimally leak it right slightly putting me in some crappy positions. Need to keep it in mind and focus more to drop a few strokes.  
    • Grade: A Likes: It is a very simple drill with no training aids. It worked for me as a bogey golfer to improve my ball striking. That is why it gets an A grade. It can be used on the course. I got my first eagle using this drill as my on course swing, although I had a problem with hitting the ball over the green as I was getting more distance than with my normal swing. Dislikes: It would be nice to see a student work through this drill. I had to experiment a bit to figure it out.  Although Cheney says you can or maybe should use this short follow through as you swing, his own swing has a full follow through.  He should explain how to get to that full follow through. I would like to see him apply this to driver if it can be.
    • Slow doesn’t necessarily apply to putting. Except that it means don’t just rapidly hit a bunch of putts. Take your  time.
