    Oh the horror. Real men, woman loving men would never wear those. My local ballpark would never allow that.

    ^^ Next we'll have Tour players grabbing their sacks and slapping each other's butts (including caddies) on the 18th in lieu of the "traditional" hand shake.

    HahahahahahHahahahah someone commenting on an 80 at Augusta. Worry about your own style. Blah blah flat bill. It's what my grandfather wore in the early-mid 90s. Now baby boomers what to critique it. Get over the fact you grew up in the 80s/90s and your so called fashion sense stems from that. Mock turtlenecks forever, right.????




    we are all friends here..mostly, take a deep breath and relax ! I doubt if anyone here really cares what anyone else wears ! Besides...the mock turtlenecks are out with us...not warm enough !

    Boomers didn't grow up in the 80s or 90s. In fact, they are the parents of the kids that grew up in the 80s and 90s.


    Boomers were technically born until '62-64. Which means when they could afford to buy there own clothes it would be around the mid 80s to early90s. So, yeah.

    What do you care? You don't like them don't wear them it's as simple as that

    I really do love these style threads! Think I may start a "what are you wearing on the course today" thread. I'd really enjoy the banter between the twenty somethings with joggers and high tops and the baby boomers with their traditional attire.

    Hey guys, Payne's knickers and DeChambeau's hat are the history of the game and the history

    of the Masters! If folks don't like the new stuff because they were worn at the Masters, what was wrong with

    Payne's knickers and DeChambeau's hat worn by Hogan and others?

    I present Horschels' pants for consideration.



    And while I may not be a fan of the pants I'm still a big Rickie fan. I bet not one of you doesn't know who made those pants, so pants mission accomplished. One of the nicest guys out there. Golf is humbling and he handled his cut like a gentleman in his press. So attack the pants sure but don't attack the guy personally.

    I really didn't care much for Rickie initially but he seems to be a stand up guy and I now have quite a bit of respect for the man and his game. I realize more every day how much of a dinosaur I am but looks are still a part of your overall image.

    He is marketing to children and middle/high school kids and yes, they are wearing those tight fitting clothing with elastic bindings around the bottom of the leg. Also, I agree, not a good look at all but it's all about whom he is marketing to.

    Anyone else think it's coincidence that Alexis Randock dumped Rickie right around the point where he started wearing the sweat pants? I don't.

    It wasn't disrespectful to the Masters. It was disrespectful to my eyes. Phil was right on his heels for worst dressed outfit at the Masters. Horschel is an honorary mention.

    I swear, we are one step away from yelling at these younger pros to get off our lawn.



    If you hate joggers, fine. I don't own a pair either, and don't expect to. Truth be told, with my age and body type nobody wants that. But I'm guessing I'm not the target demographic either for Puma or joggers. I'm also guessing there's no grand conspiracy to promote these as standard attire from which we must all rebel.



    Honestly, as much as I don't see myself wearing that, I am more committed to not turning into Walter Matthau over what "kids today" are wearing.



    Lighten up, Francis.



    This is my last post for 2014 - I'm going back to the future where we've all talked about this to death.

    Fowler fan here. Favourite golf clothing brands are Puma and Adidas. Dislike Nike immensely.



    I have to say the Nike blade collars are infinitely more acceptable than Rickie's rather silly trousers.

    Given how much traction the "Rickie's Joggers" tread(s) have pick up, this ^ thread would be such a great idea! Haha

    Why on earth do you care so much about the way someone else dresses? Clearly, he likes the look and should be left alone after that. It's not you to decide what someone wears or better yet, doesn't wear. How would you like it if someone you actually knew citizen the way you dress? I'm sure you'd shrug it off as no big deal. And you're doing this to someone you don't even know on a personal level. Let Rickie be himself and you as well

    Here's my question... Do you guys want the sport of Golf to die?



    I'm 30, so while this 'trend' won't be seen on me, I'm also young enough to know that I won't be caught dead wearing what half of the posters here do either. (10 years ago, we all likely agreed 'skinny jeans' would never catch on, but we all know how that played out) As someone mentioned above, this isn't about respect, or tradition, or setting new trends. It's about spreading the demographic of Golf beyond, yuppy, rich, white, 60 year old, men. Appealing to younger generations, even if only with 1 golfer they can relate to, could exponentially increase the business of golf for the entire lifespan of a single generation. This is not to imply that a small demographic, from a single generation will make or break the game of golf, but to be so close minded as to dismiss an entire golfer, brand, trend, style, fad, or whathaveyou, is just the first step in dwindling the audience as a whole. As a 30 year old, I am the product of Tiger Woods. My existence on the golf course, and on this forum can be directly related to Tiger Woods and Nike making golf 'cool' when I was growing up. The Tiger effect was massive. Fowler is not Tiger, but if he can attract even a fraction of new-golfers to the sport, that otherwise would have never even looked twice... then you can't sit here and tell me Fowler is negatively effecting the sport, because you think his clothes are offensive. If you truly want nothing but tradition, then the sport will die with your generation, in which you believe the tradition was created.



    I understand that in your eyes golf is 'your game', but it's not. As a younger golfer, more often than not, I find myself despising being around the 'golf crowd'. I feel like I'm constantly being condescended to, or treated with disdain. I dislike spending time in pro-shops, because many of the older staff simply can't be bothered to help some kid. It's as if I'm dismissed for my age, and this extends onto the golf course as well. In tournaments it feels like we're being watched, people just expect you to do something completely disrespectful. You feel the eyes of people just waiting because they assume you're a hoodlum, here to steal, break, or set the store on fire. Demo Days, Fittings, Expo's, even at Lessons, you get that sense, that you simply aren't worth their time. You don't matter, you aren't wanted, and you don't belong. In essence, the way many of you view, discuss, and treat Fowler's pants, directly correlate to how you view, discuss, and ultimately treat young golfers in general. It's repulsive, and not just from a golfing perspective, but for humanity as a whole. Not everyone, not every time, not everywhere, but just something to keep in mind.
