The 10-11 inch inseams are too long for me. Wear Nike everything in golf but the inseams too long in the shorts. Anyone know of a top golf short with 9" inseam? Thanks.

Rather than chasing an inseam length, why not just take your shorts to a tailor?

Should only be a few bucks to change the inseam and you'll have exactly what you're after in pretty much any brand you want. If you are looking for a "top" brand, it's likely worth the nominal investment.

I'm 5'10" as well, but like shorts a bit longer. I bought a pair of under armors that just feel too short...just above the knee. They may work for you. I currently have been wearing nike, tm, sligo, and adidas, and like them all.

check out Kohl's - Grand Slam line.  Fit well, and can't beat the price.  Under Armour also, as others have mentioned.

Gap has really good shorts in 8" and 10". I HATE long shorts and actually find the 10's to be short enough for me. Also, rather inexpensive compared to most brands.

I have noticed department stores are showing shorter shorts. It may be a trend.

5'10" here and Nike are the best IMO. tried PGA and Haggar and both are WAY too short for me. The Nike's feel perfect.

+1. I am 6'0", but 29" inseam slacks.  Most everything is too long except the Greg Norman shorts.  And a good thing, they sell them cheap at Steinmart.  Also, the Bolle line they carry there are a little shorter too.

Bought Greg Norman tonight at Belk. I'm 5'7 and these may be the first shorts ever that I don't have to have altered. I usually have all shorts hemmed. I HATE shorts that are too long. Bought 4 pair!!

I'm 5' 10" and I wear Nike, Under Armour, and a pair of Hurley shorts that pass as golf shorts. I'm looking to get a pair of Oakley shorts next.

Izod mid sized waisted shorts have a 9" inseam.  You can pick them up for cheap off ebay.

I'm actually opposite, and like shorts with longer inseams (10" minimum).  What are the better brands I should be looking at?
