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!

    • Finally birdied #9. It was one of those "boring" birdies on a par 5; Pulled drive to right rough, good lay up to fairway 50 yards short of the green, 60° to 12' and a good putt to make it a nice 4.  Yes! 
    • I have struggled with my golf swing for a long time with over the top problem resulting in big slices, pulls, and inconsistent contacts. My handicap ranges from 18 to 21 and I have broken 90 less than 5 times in my life with a total of 10 years of golf. I have tried many changes and took instructions but the changes never stick. Like many amateurs sometimes I thought I have discovered the magic fix only to be disappointed later. I hope this is not the case. In the last month, I have experimented with Stack and Tilt and I found out that it allows me to have better contact with the ball and minimize the over the top problem. In my last two rounds, I have shot 14, and 10 over. In the last few months I also have a golf simulator which allowed me to practice almost daily. I don't know if the two low scores are the results of stack and tilt or the simulator or both. I find that it is easier to pivot on the left foot for both the full swing, pitching and chipping. With the full swing, stack and tilt method somehow allows my right elbow to be closer to my body and I turn and swing the club from the inside much better. I was hitting the driver 240 to 270 in the last two rounds. Before I used to hit the driver 220 to 240. I will play again in 2 weeks, it will be interesting if I can break 90 again. Has anyone else had similar success with stack and tilt?
    • Day 117.  I spent well over five minutes trying to figure out my timing via the tempo app, as per Erik's Covid-19 drills day 8.  I think I got it (85 bpm) and got some practice with that and the app in;  I'll aim to get some video to see if I'm doing this right before doing the second half of the drill.
    • I lipped out an eagle putt on the #2 hc hole, but tapped in the remaining 1 footer for birdie. It was on hole #5 which was vacant of a birdie on the excel sheet. My driver was working well for me today. - 8 at this point.
