LPGA Pros receive Shocking Email

On July 2nd LPGA pros received an email regarding strict new dress code rules for the upcoming tour. The email was sent by LPGA player president Vicki Goetze-Ackerman. The LPGA Player President did not hold back regarding the somewhat harsh language she used within her email which provided details on the new regulations. One major detail that stood out in the email was the hefty $1,000 fine for each violation. The new regulations include:

—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

Many are surprised by these new regulations. Mainly because the LPGA tour is known to be exciting and interactive for young players and fans. Caddies at the tournament sport the twitter handles if their player on their bibs and players are even mic’d up and occasionally interviewed mid-round. For a tournament that has often opened the doors to the excitement of the game to establish dress code rules with a rather large punishment if broken, is shocking to many.

Players such as Michelle Wie are often seen sporting racerback tops while on the course. While this may usually be Michelle’s style of chose, she will have to choose between her collar less racerback tops or paying the fine of $1,000 for this upcoming LPGA tour.

The LPGA’s chief communications and tour operations officer made a statement downplaying the changes that have been made: “The dress code requires players to present themselves in a professional manner to reflect a positive image for the game. While we typically evaluate our policies at the end of the year, based on input from our players, we recently made some minor adjustments to the policy to address some changing fashion trends. The specifics of the policy have been shared directly with the members,” she said.
