Tan shorts are the hoody of golf attire! Some will love them. Others will loathe them. Especially so if they are Magnum PI short!

I will say I am not far + or - from your age cutoff. I used to only wear khaki colored shorts from the time I started playing golf in the mid 1990s until maybe 3 years ago. I think in the mid 2000s I had one yellow pair of shorts but that was as far as I branched out beyond khaki. Then 3 years ago I finally started branching out into various shades of grey shorts, followed by various shades of blue shorts. I really like the look of those now.  Currently, khaki is only about 1/4 of my shorts collection. I have some shirts that seem to look better with khaki than other colors so I can't see myself phasing them out completely, but I won't be buying more khaki shorts unless the current ones get worn out. The khaki ones I do have are modern synthetic Adidas Ultimate 365 shorts, not some circa 2004 pleated cotton Polo Golf ones (which I used to have back then...)

I have shorts of different colors, but I have about half in tan for two reasons:

  • An easy color to blend with different golf shirt and shoe colors. And, khaki doesn't show dirt stains like cream or light gray.
  • I have volunteered at seven national-level golf tournaments in the St. Louis area since 2009. Khaki or tan seems to be universal uniform color for trousers and shorts for volunteers.

To me tan and khaki are two different colors. Khaki being lighter and tan being much darker. I have both in the rotation but I wear shades of navy, grey, and pops of color more. I do like the darker shade of tan pants that Rory sometimes wears and my shorts sort of match those. I think you do have to pair it with the right shirt and as long as they’re above the knee and fitted they’re fine.

Oh man, Mid to late 90's when I started playing, you had to have khakis. Hell, up to like 5 years ago I was wearing them (47 years old). I mostly wear greys and blues with an occasional green, black, cream, etc. In my opinion, navy blue is just as easy as khakis were to match. They go with just about anything. I still have a handful of khakis in my closet, but I haven't pulled any out in a while.

when i was in my 30's most of my shorts were khaki/tan colored with a couple pairs of grey shorts. I'm 45 now and I maybe wear 1 pair of khaki shorts specifically for golfing. Everything else is different shades gray, blue, black, salmon, and patterns. If i wasn't 100% sure i'd stain or get them dirty after the 1st hole i'd even wear white shorts. I'm not against wearing khaki/tan there's just so many other choices out there. At least i stopped wearing cargo shorts 🤣

Current shorts rotation includes two pair of khaki (or tan?), one pair of grey, and one pair of navy. I'm not really sure why you wouldn't have a pair of khaki shorts. Unlike other colors they literally can be worn with any color shirt.

 

Personally, I avoid all of the "other" colors especially the pastel/pale ones. I'm not trying to look like an Easter egg out there on the course.

    • In-hand photos of 2023 TaylorMade Stealth 2 Plus, Stealth 2, Stealth 2 HD drivers + fairways woods
      Check out our front page launch stories here and here. 
       
      What you need to know: For the first time, carbon is the most prevalent material by volume in a TaylorMade driver, and more carbon equals better performance, says the company. Last year, TaylorMade debuted a 60X Carbon Twist Face. With TaylorMade Stealth 2, engineers are bringing carbon to more of the golf club — and unveiling a new-and-improved Carbon Twist Face in the process. Stealth 2 Plus (low spin, most workable) Stealth 2, and Stealth 2 HD (draw bias, high launch, most forgiving) drivers make up the Stealth 2 family.

      What you need to know: Breakthrough movable weight technologies and versatile designs are the hallmarks of the 2023 TaylorMade Stealth 2 fairway woods. Stealth 2 Plus is branded as “three fairway woods in one” owing to the unique performance characteristics afforded by the 50-gram sole weight. Stealth 2 features a slightly lower profile 3D carbon crown than Stealth. This moves CG down and away from the toe with more weight in the rear of the club for higher launch and MOI. Ultra-high MOI Stealth 2 HD features an oversized 200cc head and low-profile sole, creating an easy-to-hit, draw-biased club.
