If people wear Vans then mess them up because of conditions, then laugh at them. Don't hate on them.
Hoodie? Guy, it gets cold. I, personally, will wear something a bit more weatherproof but, again, let them do what they do and laugh at them.
Golf pants? I don't own them. Don't need them. San Diego is nice and I have a couple pairs of shorts that work fine for me.
I feel like you started this thread to be a b**** to the people who definitely will not read these forums. Somewhat counter productive. But, I'll be sure to wear some joggers, adidas sandals, untucked shirt with opened up hoodie, and my Boston Red Sox team hat (more comfortable than golf hats) next time I'm at your course. Say something to me. It's a gentlemans game, after all.
First off, I'm the OP but I'm NOT the modern golfer according to that guy's definition.
To answer your question, there's nothing wrong with wearing comfortable clothes. The Modern Golfer assumes wearing a tucked in shirt or golf pants is uncomfortable. I'm very comfortable wearing my adidas shorts/under armour pants and under armour shirts. If it's cold I will wear a beanie and arc'teryx atom lt down to 35 degrees. I don't see the need to wear a hoody. I don't have a problem with hoodies, though.
Wearing vans to the golf course is like wearing vans to a wedding... yeah you can do it but do you want to be that guy?
I started the thread because I can. Whatever the reason, I wont say anything next time you're at my course. Probably nobody will. I prefer to be the guy who people say something to... you know, like let's meet for drinks after or come to my house for dinner.
Maybe I read this wrong but if you need certain clothes for people to talk to you, maybe you just need a better personality.

I've learned to never judge a book by it's cover, (especially in golf where a rickie fowler lookalike can put up a score in the triple digits and and the old tan guy hobbling around smoking a pipe shoots par) if someones good company and a stand up person, who the F%$# cares what they wear

Iím 32 and generally quite open to the modern golf style, but I would draw the line at hoodies. Pretty much everything else Iím a fan of. The modern shoe (those Nike Air offerings are lush) and the more streamlined cut of trousers are all good for me.
I tuck in my shirt unless itís really hot, in which case I untuck it to let the air flow.

Sophisticated, elegant, and distinguished. However, my guess is our example of the "modern golfer" would likely prefer mimosas to the martinis.
