The European Tour allows players to wear shorts, and the PGA of America allowed them during practice rounds for last year’s PGA Championship. Tiger Woods would like to see the PGA Tour follow suit.
Woods appeared on a Facebook live video with Bridgestone Golf and offered the following on the topic:
"I would love it. We play in some of the hottest climates on the planet. We usually travel with the sun, and a lot of our events are played in the summer, and then on top of that when we have the winter months here a lot of the guys go down to South Africa and Australia where it's summer down there.
"It would be nice to wear shorts. Even with my little chicken legs, I still would like to wear shorts."
When Tiger speaks, people listen. It will be interesting to see if anything comes of this.
