I cant see why it wouldn’t be, it has no impact on safety or compliance to the rules of the sport.
I think it more to do with the hood flailing around during your swing. With that it mind why would you want to wear one. What does a hoody do that a wooly hat or scalf doesn't?

Watching Hatton and Smith today the hood didn’t seem to impeded their swing at all and it didn’t seem to be moving too much when they were swinging - I have worn a hoodie at the range years back and can’t recall it hampering the swing ?

I wear a hoody to the range. I can't say it happers the swing it's more to do with having to throw it back over my shoulder after every swing.

Exactly, given that it's designed by Adidas for golf, I imagine they'd make it so it doesn't flap about freely in the wind. It's not like just digging an old hoodie out of your cupboard. Also I have played golf with a hood up before, some hoods on certain jackets it might hamper your view, but on others it doesn't, it depends on the cut of the hood and the design.

Personally I think people moaning about hoods on the golf course need to have a look at themselves. It's just a practical clothing feature for rain and/or warmth if you need it. Really nothing to get worked up about. One for the loony sock brigade.

I don't get what the hood adds. A fleecy top, similar to a hoodie material wise, with a higher neck would be way warmer, useful, and more comfortable. Without the flappy bit to get on your nerves.
It's got a mountain of media attention, it's different to all the other standard golf tops out there. It's been a brilliant bit of marketing.

Don't look too deeply into it, it's just fashion.

Cardigan for having a brandy in the private men’s club. Hoodie for popping in Asda for pizza and 4 pack of carling.

Golf is hardly full of fashionable people. I've personally seen some shockers in my time - anyone that has a royal and awesome pair of trousers or wears all orange.

Jordan Smith made a hole 🕳 in one at Wentworth, rocking his hoodie.

I believe that's the correct terminology, you rock a hoodie, right? 🤷‍♂️

I don’t mind it, don’t think I’d wear one for golf as I think there are better looking tops but won’t begrudge others wearing one. Golfs a sport so clothes suitable for sport should be allowed

I voted I couldn't care less, however, I don't think I would ever wear one on a golf course. What other people wear though is up to them, it is just a bit of clothing Also, they look like they could be a snagging hazard when rummaging about in the bushes, so no good for most of us on here.
