It's sad because the golfing world can be so split up. You have your muni courses who get Joe Bob from the outskirts of town, who has a mullet, wears jean and tennis shoes with a dale earnhardt tee shirt and plays a round of golf. Then you have your upper level corporate guy who has the funds to join a premier club and has clients every week so he must look the part. I always tuck because being 5'7" with a 42-44" chest leaves me at a large, that looks ridiculous untucked haha.

I always start tucked, but frequently become untucked during the course of the round.  Fat guy, coming through!

Tucked or untucked has everything to do with what constitutes being sloppy.  Many people don't know that word, especially today.  

After I got dressed last weekend, I actually didn't tuck my shirt in.  But, by the time I got ready to walk out the door I felt so uncomfortable, I tucked it in...  Showed up for my TT and found I was put with a couple of guys that took sloppy to new heights.  What a surprise... :D their game turned out to be about the same.  NO attention to detail was impart why they couldn't get the ball to go where they hoped, even with putter.

So rules don't apply to you?  Do you also wear your hat backwards in the clubhouse when you are required to remove it?  Screw the club and it's traditions, screw it's members, screw the person that invited you.  Tough talk, but that's all it is - talk.

Tucked 100% of the time, whether playing Pebble Beach or a goat ranch field with a couple sticks stuck in the ground.  I feel golf is a gentlemens game and your suppose to look nice, neat, and well dressed at the golf course and untucked shirts make you look like a slob.

I think I made my case pretty clear; I've never had it be an issue at any course I've played, period. Why would you assume I would wear my hat backwards? I tell you what, keep your stuffiness and I'll keep my fun, how bout that? Talk? You don't know me so don't assume it's talk. If a club tells me I can't play there because my $300 shirt is untucked, I'm walking out, period. That's not talk, that's just the way I roll. If I'm not good enough to play there untucked, then I'm not good enough.  Life is too short to be a stuffy windbag all the time.

Like many...... I always start out with tucked.......I have been guilty of shirt becoming untucked, and almost all the time, I do tuck it back in.

Most private clubs do indeed have a dress code, and many include shirts must be tucked in at all times.

I played two tournaments this year, and they were at private courses, during the announcements, the pro said he wanted us all to know up front that he has more marshals on his course then anyone would imagine(the marshals being other members and home owners on the course), but that they usually only inforce two rules, and if anybody violated these rules, they would be escorted off the course, as these club rules have no wiggle room...... first rule..... NO PEEING ON COURSE....... second rule.....SHIRTS MUST REMAIN TUCKED IN AT ALL TIMES.

So for you golfers who hate clubs that have and enforce rules....... save yourselfs a trip to these fine courses...... The National at Pinehurst...... .and Greensboro Country Club- Farm Course. I am glad I didn't have a problem with either of these clubs rules as they offer excellent golf and the atmosphere at both were top notch.

I'm always tucked and I'm built like a lineman. I can't stand looking at a guy who's wearing an oversized shirt untucked.  It looks like he's wearing a dress.  If the shirt hem is just below the waist then it's fine, but most of the golf shirts are extra long to stay tucked in.  Frankly, it looks ridiculous untucked.

I can't believe this is even debateable.  Tucked.

In fact unless I'm going to the pool or beach I don't leave the house with any shirt untucked.  I also take my hat off inside and hold the door for women, that's how I was raised.

Most of my golf polos aren't long enough to tuck in so it's usually untucked.  I've seen AK wear shirts like this during tournaments.
I'm a short guy (5' 10" - 11") but my chest is broader than normal for my height.  Therefore the shirts I wear that fit and look good in the chest area are rarely long enough to tuck in and stayed tucked for more than a few minutes if that

Besides I've got more important things to worry about while on the golf course (like playing golf) instead of playing fashion show.

I always start tucked but the majority of the shirts I wear are quite fitted and many, if not most, hit just below my belt line if not a tad higher; hence even a practice swing causes them to come untucked.
I can and will not ever wear shirts and pants that are oversized to the point of looking sloppy, like most athletic companies produce to the masses.  
I'd never be caught buying my golf equipment and apparel in the same place, period.
Typically my shirts hit perfectly when untucked and being tapered you really can not notice unless you are very close. That being said if someone were to be upset my shirt were untucked I'd give them a laugh. And for the record,'i played Shinnecock, Merion, and Oakmont this year all wearing a similar outfit, none of which included a belt and not once did someone at these high-brow places even look twice.
Sorry to sound like a conceited a-hole but I beat myself up every single day running, swimming, lifting, dieting, and putting forth more effort than most find sane to look good, and call me whatever you want but I am not going to hide my efforts behind oversized boxy clothing from a proshop.

what is that story about the two villages that fight over where to open an egg? I tuck when I go to nice courses, but for people to get upset if my shirt becomes untucked is ridonkulous.

Who gives a rat's a**? If a club, regardless of name, ever tells me that I can't play with an untucked shirt, they can stuff it. I've played many fine courses around this great country of ours and never once has a remark been made about my untucked shirt. The first time that comment is uttered will be the last time I darken the door of that particular establishment.

haha....you're kidding right? If a club has rules then just follow them. Does it bother you that much if someone asks you to tuck in your shirt? people look sloppy when their shirts are untucked, therefore a nice club is going to require you to tuck in your shirt. Let me guess, if they ask you not to wear sneakers or flip flops in the grill room then you won't eat there? Or if a jacket is required for cocktail hour at a member guest then you won't go?  do you care that you inability to follow rules may reflect poorly on the member that you are with?

and nobody cares if your shirt costs $300. odds are that the guy in front of you in the $30 izod shirt from 1994 is a heck of a lot wealthier than you are.

please don't take offense to my response, but it might be time to grow up a bit.

Some of you may have a crutch to lean on, if daddy did not teach you a simple golden rule.  Mine, as mentioned already, taught me that it meant something about me as a person.  Hence, I give a minute to my attire and make sure before playing my shirt fits properly and my outfit looks nice.  If a proper fit is impossible from one brand, try another!

I am a fan of AK, however I always notice the shirt out in back, but tucked so his pimp belt can shine for the crowd.  Also, the front of the shirt is never buttoned.  Love the Hogan pic, those were the days for sure.  Hey pepper, I'm with you on the hips thing..they certainly don't teach that move and it being equal to proper coil anymore.

I bet your host at Merion was wearing a belt and had his shirt tucked in.  Hopefully he won't get a letter on account of you.

So you scoffed at the rules of someone else's club.  I can't imagine that's appreciated anywhere.  You probably have standards that you impose on your employees and your children, so why not follow a rule as simple as tucking your shirt in?  

As for shirts that are slim fitting/tapered/have long tails that stay tucked in, they're out there, everywhere.  I can't stand the oversized shirt look, either.  Check out Sligo, for instance, who makes 100% poly shirts that are slim fitting yet long through the waist.  Your current shirts may not fit the bill, but there are plenty of brands out there that will.  

I think people should find out what the rules are at other people's clubs, and then follow them.  It's the respectful thing to do.

Excellent points...... sometimes golfers just don't understand that as MS22 put it...." these high-brow places" actually do have rules and expect not only the members but their guests to follow them. Some rules that many tend to not know about are simply how guests are supposed to drive to bag drops and not just go park and carry their own bag to the clubhouse. Many clubs have rules against changing shoes in the parking lot.

Here is the rules for Merion taken from their website..... they are pretty clear on their position of shirts about being tucked. The member probably didn't get a letter, but was probably spoken to about his guests conduct while at the club.

Generally private = tucked, public = untucked. I prefer untucked as after my first drive half the shirt's untucked anyways. I will sometimes wear cargos but usually nice looking knee length shorts with matching shirt and hat so even though I'm not tucked I don't look like a bum, My cap is 4.7 right now so I'm not a scrub, I just like to be comfortable while playing.

Depends on the shirt, weather, and dress code policy of the course where I'm playing.  I have a couple of shirts that are designed to be worn untucked.  When it is really hot outside, it can be more comfortable to wear your shirt untucked for ventilation.  When I play at a course that has a dress code posted on their website, I make sure to take a quick look at it and dress accordingly.  I've never run into a situation where anyone has commented on my attire.
I'd say, 80% of the time, I tuck it in and 20% is untucked.

That said, I find it comical that people pass judgment on a person's character and/or golf ability based on whether they tuck in their shirt.  I know traditionally, it's considered "neat" to wear your shirt tucked in, but today's fashion allows for more leeway in that regard.  Oh, and I shot 72 last weekend with my shirt untucked from start to finish -- though I did bogey the last two holes, so maybe it was my "sloppy" attire that infected my game at the end, and not my mental midgetry and complete lack of closing ability...:D

I think it's pretty clear I'm not kidding. As I've said twice now, I've never had it be a problem at any course I've played. No one has ever asked me to tuck in my shirt, period. I just don't do the stuffy thing, that's all. I wear a suit to funerals and weddings. I really don't see what the problem is. I don't buy into judging people in that manner. I don't think it says anything about anyone because they won't tuck in. If you had 50 people and told them to look left, you'd have that one person who would look right, instead. That would be me. As for growing up, you don't know me, so don't suppose to know what I need to do.

Depends on the shirt, weather, and dress code policy of the course where I'm playing.  I have a couple of shirts that are designed to be worn untucked.  When it is really hot outside, it can be more comfortable to wear your shirt untucked for ventilation.  When I play at a course that has a dress code posted on their website, I make sure to take a quick look at it and dress accordingly.  I've never run into a situation where anyone has commented on my attire.
I'd say, 80% of the time, I tuck it in and 20% is untucked.

That said, I find it comical that people pass judgment on a person's character and/or golf ability based on whether they tuck in their shirt.  I know traditionally, it's considered "neat" to wear your shirt tucked in, but today's fashion allows for more leeway in that regard.  Oh, and I shot 72 last weekend with my shirt untucked from start to finish -- though I did bogey the last two holes, so maybe it was my "sloppy" attire that infected my game at the end, and not my mental midgetry and complete lack of closing ability...:D

This is exactly my point. I could just as easily shoot par with an untucked shirt as I could shoot 90 with my shirt tucked and my pants under my armpits. It DOESN'T matter. Anyone who judges people in that way is someone to pity in my book.

I love these threads!  So far I have learned from this post and others;

Hat backwards= Your immature

Flat Bill=  You think your a rapper or a thug

Shirt un-tucked=  Your a slob and a hack!


For the record I keep my shirt tucked in on the coarse, just because I like the way it looks.  However I could care less about how the guys in my group look or play.  More importantly I am not going to pass judgemnent without even taking time to get to know them.  

stay classy
