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

Racerback with a mock or regular collar are allowed (no collar = no
racerback)
Plunging necklines are NOT allowed.
Leggings, unless under a skort or shorts, are NOT allowed
Length of skirt, skort, and shorts MUST be long enough to not see your bottom area (even if covered by under shorts) at any time, standing or bent over.
Appropriate attire should be worn to pro-am parties. You should be dressing yourself to present a professional image. Unless otherwise told “no,” golf clothes are acceptable. Dressy jeans are allowed, but cut-offs or jeans with holes are NOT allowed.
Workout gear and jeans (all colors) NOT allowed inside the ropes
Joggers are NOT allowed

I'm kind of partial to plunging necklines, but I have not really noticed any this year. Some of the skirts are incredibly short and would have been referred to as "mini-skirts" when I was young. I'm talking to YOU Sandra Gal!

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

Golfers from multiple cultural backgrounds were wearing sun sleeves at the Decatur-Forsyth Open in June (Symetra Tour / LPGA developmental). Some women said they actually feel cooler with lightweight sun sleeves than with bare arms.

Not quite believing it yet until I see it elsewhere.  If so, someone has too much time on their hands.

When I started watching the LPGA, I was surprised by the variety of clothing that was allowed and players chose to wear.  It's a far cry from the standard PGA collared shirt, long slacks, contrasting belt.

I wonder if this started with a complaining wife or a player whose physique would prohibit some of the more provocative clothing.  

I have noticed the LPGA cameras favoring the more objectively attractive players.  I first noticed that Olafia Kristinsdottir was given quite a bit of camera time at a tournament this year that catered to introducing young girls to the sport.  Saturday and Sunday coverage would show footage of her from earlier in the week talking with a group of girls even though she failed to make the cut.

Last week, I was watching the LPGA on my computer.  Because they do no broadcast commercials that way, the commercial breaks would instead be cuts to other cameras without announcers.  Until she finished the 18th, those cameras were on Kristindottir, despite the fact that stronger players were still in the field.

If this new rule is an attempt to stop any oversexualization of the sport, I suppose it's a good thing.  However, I think it will backfire.  I enjoy watching the attractive players.  I also enjoy watching the attractive players who receive a disproportionate amount of camera time get trounced by their "less attractive" peers.

As to Gal's aforementioned short skits; she still has shorts underneath.  She's technically wearing more clothing than is required.

The best thing the LPGA could do to improve ratings would be to encourage skimpier dress....

I don't think anyone should walk around in leggings, period. 

OOoohhhh. I thought they mean under pants. Lol. Yeah, no one should wear leggings outside of a Yoga class, or gym. Were these golfers trying to wear those on the course? That's terrible.

It's pretty much the trademark of Shanshan Feng to wear cow pants one day of a tournament.  No different than John Daly's allowable unfashionable attire.

Is that what those are?  I may have to get some sun sleeves.

I don't have a dog in this topic, but it has always been my opinion, that it is very easy to over regulate something.

This new lpga clothing regulation is probably a regulation that did not need to happen. 

I understand that professionalism plays a big part in any sport/game. However, in any sport/game, having as many fans as possible attending/watching these events is pretty darn important too. Hopefully, this new regulation won't negatively effect fan intetest in the lpga.

I don't see any issues there, the ladies will still be able to look totally hot, and that's all that matters.

    • Okay, I'll make my final post in this forum saying this. Eric is an insecure egomaniac control freak who thinks he knows everything, and has his small core of minions who suck up to him and agree with him. They have such poor personalies, name calling when others have a different opinion. They are afraid to speak their own minds so as not to get chastised by the domineering Eric. Eric did it ever cross your mind that there are not many people posting in these threads because of your undesirable personality?  PS Eric your swing in the my swing thread looks horrible. You must be a shitty teacher, and a poor example to whoever you teach. Pro, my ass! 
    • Well now there appears to be controversy about the name Guardians. Again what about the name Vikings, which really has a negative connotation to it. Maybe we should stop resorting to naming teams after any human culture or ethnicity. 
    • You realize that native Americans were called ‘Indians’ because idiot European explorers like Columbus thought they were in India, right? They were 12,000 miles off. And the stupid name stuck. They never called themselves Indians. They were Wampanoag, Massasoit, Erie, Mohican, Lakota, Apache, etc. They were individual cultures with their own languages. Calling them Indian is equivalent to calling white people rednecks or honkeys. 
    • Okay, for reviews… here's the format: Rank the courses in order. Go from your least favorite to your most favorite. Give each course a score from 0-10 on the scale where 5 represents an "average" course in your opinion.^ You can award 0.5 level increments, but that's as fine as you can go. Provide some detail. ^ This isn't a scale where you review something and pan it the whole time, then call it a 7.9. A 5.0 is a 50th percentile course. A 7.5 is a 75th percentile course. 9.5 is 95th percentile. See how that goes? 🙂 Reviews may include whatever you feel is relevant to rank the "experience" of playing the course. If you care about whether the restrooms had a pleasing texture to the wall tiles, go for it. 🙂
