To any mod reading this, what is the benefit of allowing a thread like this? Even if you don’t believe he is outright trolling, this isn’t even a funny joke.

“I joke with my friends whenever I see someone playing with a noodle ball, they better not break 100 har har har”

See - this premise is ridiculously stupid. What it really does is elicit argument, not discussion.

A total detraction from the community as a whole.  Worthless.

I joke with my buddies that if you use the word "rock" in place of "wear" you'd better be 14.

Haha! Was going to call him on that, too, but cut him a break on the shortening of "professional" (despite it STILL being wrong).

What colours (note correct spelling) of trousers are acceptable to you and what aspect of their gait constitutes "rocking up" as opposed to just turning up?

I do not own a pair of white pants.  I do, however, own a couple pairs of white shorts.  I will only wear them if the weather has been fairly dry and I don't think I will encounter any mud on the course.  Wore them a couple of weeks ago and one of my foursome said I was stupid for wearing white shorts that they would be filthy by the end of the round...proved him wrong.

(I think he was talking about the OP's spelling of "pro's".)

Just picked up a new pair of white shorts today from PGA Superstore.  Too bad I have to take them to get 1” chopped off & won’t  get to wear them for almost two weeks.  10” inseams are way worse than what color you’re wearing.

White pants are definitely a statement on the golf course, and need plenty of game to back up.

I am here to say that white pant/shorts are 100% acceptable on the course. Golf courses are that one place where you can dress as wild as you want. Is it before Memorial Day? Yes. Is it over 65 and sunny? Yes. Go ahead and wear those white pants or white shorts. Wear pink pants. Wear yellow pants. Wear those argyle Loudmouth pants! There is an old saying, "look good, play good."

We've heard the flak on here for years about white pants, but I don't get why white shorts got thrown in to this?  White shorts are awesome in warm/hot weather, especially on a vacation rounds / golf trip rounds where some guys like to wear their brighter colored shirts.  Heck; they match just about any color shirt you have, and to me that's the key to a solid look.

Bright colors and pastels are nice when used appropriately.

If the weather suits it, go ahead and break them out. :)
