Shorts On Tour


Recommended Posts

Apparently the no shorts policy is being relaxed, shorts allowed for practice and pro am rounds. I say it's about time.

The PGA Tour has relaxed its player attire guidelines and will allow players to...

I don't have a problem with the relaxed rule. As long as no one decides to wear  a "Speedo".

Practice rounds, fine. Competitive rounds, still not for it. And from what I've heard that's mostly a sponsor/TV thing.

The players run the Tour, after all. If they wanted to be able to play in shorts, they could make that the rule. So what is keeping them from doing it? I've heard sponsors/TV.

That's interesting, I never thought that sponsors would care. I honestly don't think anyone would stop watching if the lads started wearing shorts.

I still think they look better in shorts.

Companies wanting to hold onto "the traditions of the game" sort of thing or not wanting to see terrible tan lines?

Maybe just "pants feel more professional"?

We still have to wear a suit at many PGA type meetings.

They’ve worn shorts in those charity rounds before tournaments. They aired a few last year.

    • I couldn't agree more. We had a Callaway fitting day at the club last week and I tried out new drivers. Went through all the bells and whistles and came to the conclusion that the Epic Flash I hit now with a Hzrdus Yellow shaft....goes further than the new Epics with the stock shaft. I actually hit the new Epic Max further with my 3 year old shaft.  I thought that was kinda funny. I guess I'm not getting the most out of my wedges, mine are at least 7-8 year old Clevelands. I suppose I need to upgrade. 
    • I suck, but I won $30 off my buddies so successful day I guess. I struck the ball really well all day but I had trouble finding fairways (5/14 just 1/7 on the front) this led to a ton of tree trouble that I didn't do a good job of managing. Had 10 GIR but only 2 birdies should have had more I had probably 6 looks under 8' and a few more under 15' but had some yippy strokes and didn't make much of anything all day. I was 0/7! on par saving putts my short game was pretty awful.   
    • Haven't decided if I'm going to let it count yet, but I got birdies on 1, 7 (definitely not counting this one as it was on a provisional green and played a lot shorter than normal) and 13 on my homecourse on Saturday. It was from the the red tees. I'll let it count, but with red number for now. Will hopefully be replaced with black/yellow numbers later this summer.  Missed a 12 feet eagle-putt on 1 (460 yard par 5) and sunk a 2 feet tap-in birdie on 13 (350 yard par 4) 
    • I'm with you. I pretty much don't think about it while hitting my full shots. But I always seem think about it when I'm lining up a birdie putt. I'm like "Ooo, this would be a nice one to cross off." or sometimes I just remember that I've already got this one.  The last two times I've played I've had reasonably good chances at birdie on number 7. Which at my course is a 170 +/- 10 or so par 3 over water. It's a tough hole because it's back in the corner or the golf property and kind of secluded from the wind. That is until your ball gets up in the air. Anyway, I've never birdied it. I've had two shots at it lately with putts of around 7-8 feet. 
    • Played 18 holes from the yellows (6210 yards, par 72, rating 72,7, slope 147) and was all over the place.  Shot 92 and had some excellent stretches of holes and some really bad ones. On holes 9 to 14 i made 5 pars and 1 double, only hitting 2 fairways, 1 green and only using 8 putts on that 6 hole stretch. It was looking like a good mid 80s round till after hole 15. +8 on the last 3 holes of the day is just a very, very sad way to end a round.   Shot of the day was my tee shot on hole 4, a 192 yard par 3. With a slight breeze in the back I hit a 7i to 8 feet past the hole. It landed a foot past the hole and it looked so good I stopped breathing while the ball was in the air. Missed the birdieputt, but still a great hole.  4/13 fairways, 2/18 greens! and 30! putts. A strange round of golf.
