Bare legs are coming to the PGA Tour.
The circuit has announced that, effective immediately, players will be allowed to wear shorts during practice rounds and pro-ams.
The news was announced in a tweet by the recently appointed co-chairman of the Player Advisory Council, two-time tour winner James Hahn.
The move mirrors a similar decision made by the European Tour in 2016 and Phil Mickelson – the defending champion at this week’s WGC-Mexico Championship – wasted no time in getting his impressive pins out.
The @PGATOUR just announced that shorts are allowed for pro-am and practice rounds. Word is they saw my Insta-structionals in shorts and felt this move needed to happen. Well played, Sir. Well played!😎 pic.twitter.com/vGCM36EoEF— Phil Mickelson (@PhilMickelson) February 18, 2019
