I finally gave in the summer and did the same thing... but only for one local course. I still try to get away with shorts and way too much big spray at the rest.

Does this count as irony?

During an awfully cold and snowy round on Sunday, I somehow managed to notice that one of our regular knee-high socks guys had nothing more than a pair of ankle socks on under his snow pants.

I found that to be odd.

I also wear soccer or baseball socks while playing wooded courses, I wear a couple pairs actually cause they do help against poison ivy, oak and some of the nasty thorns. I also wear basketball shorts (Starter or UA) it just has helped keep my legs free of poison ivy, I play a few rounds last year where the guys in my group who were not wearing socks walked through the same area I did and they all got poison ivy but me. I'm not trying to set a fashion tread I'm there to play disc golf and to say poison ivy / oak and nasty thorn free.

Here here. Soccer socks were practically made for disc golf. Plus, I just hate wearing pants.
Some discs of various sizes, weight, plastic and mold.
