I like bright pants and shirts. Plaids are cool anything other than the normal grey blue kahki. I have noticed at my club some members don't like the clothing. I was wondering where others stand, like or dislike and why.

I think something different is always fun, if you just want it for the attention and for people to look at you then that is just wrong. I think for some reason it gives me cool mental thoughts like "okay your wearing the Purple pants today your going to have a good game"

It doesnt matter what other people think. Do you critisize them on the normal clothes they are wearing? Ignore them.

i'm into clothes + fashion, i care how i look and i think all people should to a certain extent
i hate fuddy duddys who wear baggy pleated pants and xxxl polos, whose sleeves go down past their elbows. maybe those people just never learned any better but stuff looks better fitted.. not uncomfortably slim but not baggy... etc etc sorry just ranting but back on topic... i think loud clothing is definitely a good thing, it pops out on the course and most of the time it can look good and differentiate you from the sea of khaki+whatever ugly striped polo wearing people there are

I don't care what anyone else wears, I like tasteful clothes for myself. That means that I don't really care what the latest fashion is, I just want to be neat and comfortable, and relatively understated. Not all khaki, but not Ian Poulter either.

In colder weather I will even wear jeans at my home course, because it's allowed and that's just what's comfortable for me.

I have a good friend who lives and plays in California, he wheres knickers all the time. He did have the game for it he is now 61 and is 3. I have to agree with him, having certian clothes that you wear for golf is like getting ready to play, not just going to the mall.

There should be a "does not matter to me" vote, because I honestly could care less how another man is dressed. As long as people are dressed appropriately the color should never be an issue imo.

I like how most people at my course try and be unique, yes you don't just do it to show off, but sometimes you do try and just be a bit better than the rest. If everyone's wearing their stuff at our course we might as well be walking down the catwalk not the fairway!

Traditionality is never a bad thing, however I believe what you wear has a lot to do with where you're playing. For example, at my home course khaki shorts/pants w/ a polo is standard fare. At other courses I don't have a problem wearing seersucker shorts or light blue shorts, but I wouldn't do it at my home course. It all depends where you are.

I have commented on this type of topic before. I like a good loud shirt, greens, yellows, pinks, oranges, and reds, I have them all. They all fit though not baggy like a slob, but certainly not skin tight either. What I cannot stand are the bright pants. IMHO I think anyone with plaid, white, or god forbid neon colored pants should be forcibly removed from the golf course. Poulter should have been arrested by the fashion police a long time ago. There is a fine line between being fashionably individualistic and looking like a clown. If you wear yellow or pink pants you have crossed into Bozo's territory. Also, for the love of god, please get some clothes that fit. Its bad enough that the young Euros on tour have brought back some of the awful fashions from the 70's, they seem to keep ordering their outfits two sizes too small. I think Tiger dresses nice. His clothes fit, he wears nice colors, and he tends to shy away from the awful pants.

I usually just wear khaki shorts and a Polo or Chaps polo. I just recently picked up a couple pairs of plaid shorts though, so I'll be wearing those. I don't have a lot of disposable income now-a-days thanks to student loans payments, but I love to look good in the office and on the golf course, and I think vibrant colors and sharp patterns instill confidence in yourself and intimidation in others sometimes.

Quite cold here in NI, so I generally go with a cream pair of chinos and a golf polo shirt. Very dull. :)

Fashion is great. Keeps things interesting. Makes a tour player more memorable - more fan base and following - good for the sport.

more fan base and following

I sort of disagree with that, Ian Poulter is one of the most loudly dressed guys on tour, and he doesn't get one of the biggest followings. They do get noticed more but not always followed. I still think loud clothing is good for golf though.

    • That is what I was wondering when taking the practice stroke.  If I make a mark with the practice stroke in the rough or on the fairway...is that a penalty?  Because I see people doing that all the time...but since I am looking at where my divot/brushed grass was pointing as a reference point...is that illegal?  If I wasn't using it as a reference point would that be then legal?  That seems like some murky waters.  People are touching the ground on practice strokes all the time...
    • I activated Steve Stricker for Sunday's round on a lark, and he rewarded me with the low round of the tournament. For once, I made a smart call.
    • You can't make a mark (that you don't remove) for the purpose of alignment. That is against the rules.
    •  I hate the Be Better Golf guy. He gets great guests than doesn't know to shut up and let them speak. Annoying as heck.   I was really surprised by the poor play in that video. I though tthose guys would be better. But I do give them credit for showing their bad shots. They could've only shown the good ones .
    • Got a chance to take some on course video over the weekend. I should do more of this to get a better idea of what my actual swing looks like. I still need to get a new smartphone tripod and I can start vlogging again. Angles are a little off but nothing crazy. Driver   Stance is maybe a hair on the narrow side. The swing looks better than the results would indicate. I really thought I was still getting the club past parallel and across the line. Irons/Wedge   I didn't get a face on of a full iron swing so I'm posting this flighted wedge instead. Not exactly the same thing but it will have to do for now. Big takeaway on the swing is I'm still swinging too far right with the clubhead a little underplane and too shallow. I've been having some low point issues and it seems to make sense. Miss is still on the toe and an overdraw or a push, although from watching my videos again I realized that I still aim to the right, so I think my pushes aren't even as bad as I think they are, only that I'm already lined up right of target to begin with. I'm going to have to change my pre-shot routine to incorporate better aiming. Pitching   I included the full speed video of my pitching because I wanted to look at my tempo. Still pretty Fruit-Ninja-y. Putting Figured I'd take a putting video. This was on the 18th green, after the face on video of my driver and the flighted wedge, so a mini vlog of sorts. I'm trying something out where I hold the putter with only my right hand and then hold my whole hand with my left for stability. I was playing around with distance control because I tend to leave lag putts way short and I noticed that my left hand in the double overlap grip kind of acts as a brake on the stroke. Putting the hands together lets the putterhead pendulum better under its own weight. As you can see I definitely didn't leave the first putt short and the speed on the second putt was perfect. My putting in general has improved since I've gotten adjusted to my putter modification. Aim is a lot better and I'm hitting my lines which is leading to better results on mid-length putts. I also need to read long putts better, just kind of lazy about it, but I'm leaving some second putts longer than they should be because I'm not reading the first putts and aiming properly. I do like the grip change though and I think once I get used to that, the distance control will be better. I have some thoughts on the full swing but I'll hash them out later. Maybe
