    Agree on hdcp vs tuck. Mind you I've seen some very high handicaps with shirts tucked in so its not a complete 1:1 ratio.
    I can't recall ever not tucking. Except those extremely casual rounds in the off season months with the boys. Jeans, long sleeve t-shirts, and a mickey of whiskey in the back pocket.

    Always tucked... I played 1 round randomly in a t-shirt and jeans and absolutely hated it

    around the clubhouse I am tucked, but by the 2nd tee I am untucked and swinging free. Re-tucked on the 18th. works good for me.

    Same! On the nicer of the two courses I usually play, both the 9th and 18th greens are overlooked by the clubhouse terrace. Smarten up (if necessary) on the fairway while approaching the green. For me, comfort is king. Also, I tend to wear shorter, more fitted polos, so it doesn't look as bad untucked as a big baggy thing flapping in the wind...

    I always tuck my shirt in but not because I have an issue with the look of it being untucked. I carry all of my excess weight in my mid section, so when I have my shirt untucked, it rides up and stays there. I hate having to pull my shirt down after every swing. I used to have issues with shirts coming untucked, but with modern super stretchy materials and the rubber strip on the inside of my shorts, it’s not an issue anymore.

    Untucked here lately. I have just gotten tired of fighting to keep my golf shirt tucked. Also, as the shirt tail pulls out the drawers start riding up too. An uncomfortable situation that can be avoided by just starting untucked.

    Tucked. My club and most places I play require shirts to be tucked, so I rarely have the option anyway.

    I always tuck. A couple of my golf buddies untuck. I heard John Ashworth on the radio the other day, and he thinks golf should be fun and casual. He was saying that he really didn't believe in dress codes, and golfers behavior was more important than the way they dress. I agree, up to a point. No cut offs, and shirts should have sleeves, but tee shirts and denim don't bother me a bit.

    Untucked shirts look so odd/off to me on the golf course. I have and always will wear my shirt tucked. I have just always felt golf is a little different than any other sport/game when it comes to attire and dress. Clothing, much like clubs, is a passion of mine and is very much a part of the game itself.

    Always have my shirt tucked while playing. Just a cleaner look in my opinion, even while wearing shorts. As soon as the round is over though, I untuck it.

    I was hardcore "tucked in" until this year. I was noticing more players, both young and old, going untucked. Maybe I just got used to the untucked look but I tried it and liked it.

    This is a fashion trend driven by younger people that is becoming acceptable in any casual situation.

    Untucked on the rare occasion I wear shorts (I’m big on sun protection), otherwise tucked. It looks better, I feel better, and consequently I play better.

    Untucked on a decent golf course is unacceptable. My dad introduced me to the game as a kid, and I’ve just always accepted certain appearance standards. I realize things evolve over time, but the firewall for me is a tucked in shirt

    Range and warmup area I'm always untucked but as I take to the 1st tee always tuck it in. Years ago I noticed if shirts were untucked I actually couldnt tell you if my playing partners have theirs tucked in or not.

    There is a small course by me that anything goes. They prefer proper golf attire but as long as you pay, you can play in whatever you want. I've played there in jeans once.

    Angel Park in Vegas allows denim. >

    People used to wear ties to play golf. They'd scoff at our casual attire on the golf course.

    Like the OP, I use to not like untucked golf shirts. But that was when I worked full-time and during my private club days. Nowadays, I seldom tuck my golf shirts or any shirts in, mostly because it's cooler. Yesterday, the humidity in SoCA was high tucking my shirt would have made feeling sticky worse. Course when we join another private club I will go back to tucking my shirt in, as that tends to be the private club way.

    I am not really sure why anyone would untuck. I generally think golf shirts are made long enough to tuck. Untucked just looks kind of messy. But hey you do you man. Go untucked if that's what makes you happier in your round.

    I go both ways (vis-a-vis shirts, anyway), depending on the situation. I'm a traditionalist, and usually like to look my best, especially on nicer courses and at private clubs, so mostly tucked. But, when I play the muni with my... let's say "rowdy" friends I'd get no end of **** if I tried rocking that look, so definitely untucked there.
