Seriously though, how many other sports have ocean views? Or require you to wear dress pants to participate? Honestly you can go straight from the golf course to church.
Come to think of it, he's better dressed than most of the people at church.
As I see it, the polo and dress pant are for the casual golfer. If you intend to be taken seriously as a professional golfer, you should wear a cardigan or at the very least a sweater vest.
Believe it or not this is why I haven't started golfing yet. I'm wrought with feelings of inadequacy when it comes to the dress code. I haven't worn a visor since high school. Is it a look I can still pull off? Then there is the whole plaid pants issue. I might have been able to work with that, but now I see the leading golfers are doing stripes.
I guess it's decided then. I'll begin golfing shortly after I raise the eighty dollars it costs to purchase those pants. Oh and I should probably get some clubs too. I might not be able to afford the pants and the clubs. Obviously, in that situation I'll have to get the pants. Unless of course there are a kind of golf clubs that will make me look skinny.
