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.

    • Does it occur to you that your friend is not the arbiter of what is or isn't appropriate?  He is one man with an opinion. And you seem to think that that trumps anyone else's. You may as well say that I as an Australian, represent everyone in my country and have the final say over anything to do with my country.  Funny how this is similar to you you thinking that Florida is doing great on Covid - but then you'd know, so we'll defer to you, in spite of the numbers and facts. You are passive aggressive and a troll. Actually, I don't think you are a troll. I fear you believe your own simplistic arguments. For your information, the Chief Wahoo image is part of an exhibit at the Jim Crow Museum of Racist Memorabilia.  
    • You really don’t get it. Not do you realize how dumb statements like that are, apparently, because nobody would make such statements intentionally if they did.
    • Played 27 Holes today made 7 birdies today finally birdied the 1st, just the second and third left to birdie.
    • I’ll pass that along to him and his people.  👍
    • Played my second round (ever) at the course that I think will be a home course for me next year (the complex has two 18s... I have played the other 18, but not in over a decade).  Birdied #13 to improve my away composite to five birdies and a total of -4 (I still have yet to par a hole nine in 2021 ... anywhere).  My two-round composite at that course is a 77.  By contrast, no birdies so far at my home course (well beyond two rounds played... and at least three scheduled in the next two weeks!), and three holes there I've yet to par.
