Removing Your Clothes to Make a Golf Shot

Recently, I stumbled across Sergio Garcia making a golf shot from the cart path. Normally this would not be anything odd for Sergio, however he did without any shoes. Of course we have all watched as players remove shoes and roll up they pant legs for shots out of the water, but I have never seen someone remove their shoes to hit off a cart path. Have you?

Over the years, I have removed my shoes and an outer layer of clothing but that is about it. Remember Gary Woodland in the final round of The Honda Classic 2016 or Aquaman, Woody Austin in the 2007 Presidents cup, these and more are golf shots where players removed an article of clothing to make a golf shot.

I am confident that I would never remove my pants or shirt to play a golf shot, but I guess some believe it is required. Regardless of what I think, removing an article of clothing to make a golf shot is an option when playing. How about you, have you removed an article of clothing to make a golf shot?

Golf is a strange game some times and removing clothing to make a shot is just one example. I guess it really boils down to what the player thinks.

I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!

      • They aren’t banned on tour, but I believe you’re right about local rules. Personally, I miss them for stability, especially off the tee, but I don’t miss the damage they create on the greens. Someone should have figured out how to make them retractable like an airplanes landing gear or something.
