Hey, if they conform to LPGA rules, they should be fine on United. Rimshot. :-O

Anyone have any pics of some of these LPGA girls wearing clothing that was deemed too revealing? Asking for a friend.

My fiancee forbids me from agreeing with that post.

Pants and tucked shirt=hotter than untucked shirt and shorts. Part of me wants to say tradition matters and people should get dressed up for golf.  Pros should look like pros etc. If a gun w

Sun sleeves first became popular among the female golfers with Asian ties.

What's that got to do with anything @WUTiger? They're not cracking down on sun sleeves (nor requiring them).

I'm not the biggest fan of some of the short stuff they're wearing. But, I have a daughter, so… :-P

The point is that they want to be seen as professionals, or at least those in charge want them to be seen that way, not as hot chicks with short shorts and part of their buttcheeks hanging out, or a bunch of cleavage popping out.

I tend to agree. I think that you should dress for the job you want, rather than the job you have. The LPGA should dress a bit more conservatively and professionally to attract the slightly more conservative, professional audience they want, and the sponsors they want, and the fans they want.

Part of it could be health-related. Sunburn of the lower cheeks could lead to skin cancer?

No…

Point being, @iacas, many players were wearing them for protection from the sun, not because the LPGA officials suggested the sun sleeves as a modesty item under tank tops. One of the pictures in the online story showed Michelle Wie wearing sun sleeves, implying they were primarily a modesty item.

Lately, however, Wie has been wearing sun sleeves to cover up her arms, most likely in an effort to appease those who are offended by her bare shoulders.

I don't mind leggings under a skirt, but they could be wearing pants instead. It does the job with...you know...keeping the sun away.

I really don't see a lot wrong with the way the ladies dress right now, but I guess I understand the reason behind the rule changes. I'm thinking the change is just to keep things classier in appearance.

After all its the LPGA not the bikini golf at the local club for charity.

The golf channel is going to start covering the senior LPGA.......maybe they just want to get out in front of the issue.

She wasn't wearing sun sleeves until recently, so I don't think she was doing it for protection. Likely she was told "uhhh, stop wearing bathing suit tops please…".

A lot of the Asian players wear them because in their culture, tans are a symbol of lower class workers who are working outside in the sun all day, while the higher class folks are inside doing business, etc.

Saw this comment on the topic elsewhere, and it seems like a reasonable explanation:

There's another issue: the game as a whole is trying to market itself to women as participants and consumers of equipment and clothing.

So the LPGA needs to be marketing itself to women as viewers. I'd bet some market research was done and enough women said 'I wouldn't let my daughter wear that, and I don't really want to look at it on someone else's either' that they decided this was prudent.

Many of the LPGA players have taken to YouTube where they can wear whatever they prefer anyway. I haven't followed any of them, but some of them push the envelope and then some off the tour. The new guidelines seem reasonable, not that restrictive, but to each his/her own.

There are no specific rules, but I still don't understand being looked down on in the local senior mens league if I don't wear a collared golf polo tucked in, with a belt and dress shorts (vs anything even remotely cargo). But I comply every week, it's not worth a fuss and not a big deal in the overall.

Dude, move on.

Yes.....let's keep up the appearance of golf being a stuffy sport. That will grow the game 

Telling professional golfers to make sure their ass cheeks are not hanging out of their shorts or skirts will do nothing to stifle the growth of the game or make golf "stuffy."

Jeez.

    • In the video, one of them had #7 as their favorite hole 🙂 Then sadly he liked #9 Here are my course reviews... Lac La Belle - 6.0/10 Visually this course is good. The mix of fescue, bunkers, and marshy areas outline the holes nicely. There is a lot of target golf going on here. Some of the holes were a bit wonky, like hole #2. Also, the 600 yard par 5 was kind of bad. I am just glad that the fescue was not thick and tall, it was very playable from. If not, this course would be unbearable. The massive putting green with basically a putt putt course was really fun. In the end, it's a good course, but I would not enjoy playing this course a lot. Just too much target golf.  Course Layout - 5/10, Course Condition - 8/10, Visual - 8/10, Clubhouse - N/A Lawsonia - 7.0/10 I really enjoyed this course. It has a unique style that isn’t around my area. Holes 1 thru 8 were good. For me, a bit too many blind tee shots. Holes 9-18 were more open from the tee. Luckily, there wasn’t much in the terms areas the ball would end up unplayable on the holes with blind tee shots. If you aimed over the mounds, and hit a decent shot you would have a shot at the green. There was a good variety of holes. This course was really fun to play.  Course Layout - 7/10, Course Condition - 8/10, Visual - 6/10, Clubhouse - N/A Mammoth Dunes - 8.0/10 A visually stunning course. It is much more of a friendly course than Sand Valley due to the green complexes having more areas to feed the ball into the green on errant shots. Each hole was like a problem to solve off the tee even though there was wide landing areas. I really enjoyed playing this course. The first tee shot of the day was really awesome teeing off from an elevated tee over looking over the expanse of the property. It really gives you a sense of the grand scale of the course. The bins of water on the course were nice since  you have to walk the course.  Course Layout - 8/10, Course Condition - 8/10, Visual - 8/10, Clubhouse - N/A Sand Valley - 8.5/10 A visually stunning golf course. The green complexes are tough with a premium on hitting the flat areas or areas with backstops. Balls would routinely run off the edges where severe slopes were located at. When you miss the green, you usually had a few options to play. Mostly, the high risk through the air or try to putt it to a spot on the green for a longer putt. I think the back nine is much stronger than the front nine. Overall, I prefer the test of this course.  Course Layout - 9/10, Course Condition - 8/10, Visual - 8/10, Clubhouse - N/A Bonus - Sandbox - 10/10 This little gem of a course is just a joy to play. Each green complex is unique and with the variety of pin placements and tee boxes changing daily, each time playing is slightly different. I thoroughly looked forward to starting every day at the Sandbox. 
    • I guess it's easier for some people to think that their enemy is a cult rather than a bunch of informed individuals. Saves one the bother of introspection. 🙃
    • I am watching that thread.  Just in wait & see mode
    • Nah. Folks like Thomas can't fathom that a bunch of people can independently arrive at the conclusion that he's a dope. So it must be that I have "minions" (his words) who just suck up to me. Ha. As if.
