So last year, the PGA decided to allow professional golfers to wear shorts during the practice rounds. This was a very nice relief from the usual and very firm Pants Only rule that the professional tours have. Plus, it’s just on practice round days, so the pros still wear pants throughout the actual event from Thursday to Sunday.
This is a really cool rule, and it allows for players to have much more of a relaxed feel during their practice rounds. With the weather out in St. Louis being absolutely brutal this week, it’s nice to let these guys have a little fun before the last major of the year.
