The LPGA Takes A Step Back With New Rule Change

Lexi Thompson Mocks New Dress Code

The LPGA is battling for fans, viewership and most importantly an identity.

They have a great crop of talent at the top and the competition is great.

But let’s step back.

Look at all of America’s female pro sports. They all struggle very badly. Tennis is arguably the most popular.

Some LPGA tour players are very good looking. So they wear clothes to show off their bodies they work so hard for and grind day in and day out to look like.

But that seemed to annoy the LPGA.

Believe it or not, the biggest headlines the LPGA has made this year has included the rules debacle with Lexi Thompson and now this.

Here are the new guidelines for the LPGA dress code:

New LPGA Dress Code

  • Racerback without a mock or regular collar are not allowed
  • Plunging necklines not allowed
  • Leggings, unless under a skort or shorts, 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) are not allowed inside the ropes.
  • Jogging pants are not allowed

Seems like the LPGA players have different views on these rules as well.

LPGA veteran Christina Kim, told Golf Channel earlier this week, “Do you really need ventilation for your side-boob? It’s not going to make you score better.”

But then you have Thompson who poked fun with this picture…

In my opinion, I feel like the game kind of took a step back with these changes. Let them wear what they want, it’s just a game in the end.
