It's just the current fad.  I mean I like Rickie Fowler and all, but a lot of the golf clothing today seems to spawn from his Puma gear.  The problem is, I haven't seen it look anywhere remotely good on any near 50 year old such as myself.  I just can't believe what they're charging for this stuff; $50-70 for a shirt and at least that (or more) for a pair of shorts.

I don't find it hideous but I avoid anything with a pattern if it's rubberized. Most of my golf clothing is purchased in the pro shop of the various courses I play so it ranges from awful to sporty, depends if I found it on the clearance rack. I don't let odd looks get in the way of a great bargain.

Not golf shirts I'd wear but I've seen similar on Tour and on the course and it wasn't a horrible look.

The colors might be influenced by Rickie but the OP examples seem to be for a bit older demographic.  The last one (black) reminded me of a bowling shirt I'd see guys wear when I was in leagues.

Nah, those are young guys' shirts. The 80's are in full fashion swing, so that's probably why it reminds you of a bowling shirt.

To the OP, I concur. Those are ugly. I kinda have this pet peeve about Rickie Fowler's attire. Every time I hear a golf announcer talk about how much fashion sense he has, it drives me nuts. Color coordinating != fashion. Sorry, had to get that one off my chest.

In my opinion the fashions today, including the rapper caps are pure crap.

Rickie Fowler should be on a fashion runway rather than a golf fairway with the comedy clothes he wears, coupled with the poor game he emulates.

Another clown like McIlroy who got the big contract and quit the game.

Rickie Fowler does not belong anywhere in fashion. Didn't someone just post that earlier?

As long as it wicks moisture away, breaths and cost no more than twenty, I could care less.

I have bought several really nice shirts at Marshalls. I got some Pebble Beach ones and Greg Norman ones. Half of the huge one I went to was all golf attire. I was like a kid on Christmas morning. Haha.

It makes life on the course interesting...

but it's not for me.

I prefer the new apparel that is basic. In that way, I can use it for 2-3 years, not one season.

That stuff is ok I guess on the golf course. I usually buy something I wear besides on the course. As to price, if it is not on the red dot at Belk, I usually don't look at it. Sam's often has some deals this time of year on something age appropriate for us who are, uh, over 30ish. ( I am way over)

As a general rule, I don't wear anything on the course that I would be embarrassed to wear to a restaurant afterwards. Solid or striped shirts for me.

They are ranked 2 and 30 in the world and flat bill caps were the norm back in Lee Trevino's day, long before rappers came along. I'm old enough that I remember when all caps came with flat bills. My Dad spent time with me showing how to personalize the amount of bend when I received my first little league uniform. Which back then was a cheap t-shirt with just a number and matching cap.

I generally wear solid colored shirts, or occasionally ones with small stripes. About two weeks ago, I finally bought myself some plaid shorts - black and grey with a little bit of yellow. Prior to that, the only semi-eccentric golf clothing I had was in the belt department: a black one with a big Nike buckle, and also a white belt and a red belt.
