New Strict Dress Code for Female Golfers

The Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) is tightening up its dress code in a way that’s got a lot of people scratching their heads. Mainly, because LPGA’s new stricter dress code cracks down on female golfers wearing athletic clothes.
According to Golf Digest, LPGA Player President Vicki Goetze-Ackerman sent out an email to golfers on July 2 informing them that the dress code would be changing as of Monday, July 17. Goetze-Ackerman ticked off the items the women would no longer be able to wear on the green, including plunging necklines, joggers, leggings by themselves (they can be worn under shorts or skirts), and racerback tops without collars. “No collar = no racerback,” is the parenthetical used in the email.
Workout clothes and jeans are not allowed to be worn at all, the email states. Skirts, skorts, and shorts must now be “long enough to not see your bottom area (even if covered by under shorts) at any time, standing or bent over.”
The email also details how the golfers should dress off the course, explaining that “you should be dressing yourself to present a professional image” for all pro-am parties. “Unless otherwise told ‘no,’ golf clothes are acceptable,” Goetze-Ackerman wrote. “Dressy jeans are allowed, but cut-offs or jeans with holes are NOT allowed.”
New strict rules for female golfersGoetze-Ackerman wrote that female players are in charge of notifying their clothing sponsors of these changes and will be punished if they don’t follow the rules. “Penalties for violating the dress code will be a $1,000 and it will double with each offense,” the email states.
In a statement to Golf Digest, Heather Daly-Donofrio, the LPGA tour’s chief communications and tour operations officer, said the dress code change “requires players to present themselves in a professional manner to reflect a positive image for the game.” She said that the “minor adjustments to the policy to address some changing fashion trends” came from feedback from the players themselves.
Strict rules for female golfersEarlier this year, the LPGA was applauded for “modernizing” its dress code by allowing player Michelle Wie to wear athletic wear, including collarless shirts that bare her arms, despite the rules barring “workout clothes.” Now it seems Wie will have to adjust those looks to fit this new dress code.
This is not the only sport being criticized for its overzealous and perhaps puritanical dress codes. Last week, Wimbledon enforced its all-white dress code so strictly that the tournament made a male tennis player Jurij Rodionov change his blue underwear.

  1. Thanks for one’s marvelous posting! I truly enjoyed reading it, you will be a great author.I will ensure that I bookmark your blog and may come back later on. I want to encourage you to definitely continue your great work, have a nice day!

  2. Brandon Aguilar^Beware. Clearly there are some quality control issues happening here. Either that&#44 or they’re being highly deceptive when displaying the image of the product. I MUST assume this is just a quality control issue though. Otherwise&#44 how could they possibly be getting by while doing this?The shirt finally arrived (took a couple weeks)&#44 but to our surprise&#44 the print on the front of the shirt was laughably small (see the included image). The image on the description showed the print going from edge to edge of the shirt front. Ok&#44 I can understand if it didn’t go fully edge to edge&#44 but come on&#44 this is ridiculous. It looks like a thumbnail of the image! The whole idea is that your head is supposed to line up where Jack’s head would be&#44 and it’s supposed to look like you’re wearing his suit. Instead&#44 it just looks like you have a small thumbnail of the suit centered on the shirt. Again&#44 this MUST just be a quality control issue …right?I’m definitely returning the shirt. However&#44 even if I asked for a replacement&#44 judging by how long it took to get the first shirt&#44 it’s unlikely I’d receive it in time for Halloween&#44 which was the intention.~3|Zachary Svelling^Think bicycle shirt. Made two sizes too small&#44 too short with very short sleeves. Seller gave me a hard time with refund.~3|Darling A Gonzalez^Shirt is terrible. The tuxedo shirt design is tiny&#44 very faded&#44 you can barely see it. Do not buy this shirt.~3|Porshan A.^love it~5|Kensl^Don’t wast your time.~3|noahsmom^Actual printed “tux” was TINY! Covered only a small area on the chest&#44 the shirt was mostly black. Disappointed. Not able to return as this was supposed to be part of a Halloween costume.~3|Amazon Customer^the decal on the front could have been a little bigger but was definately not as small as some other reviews are claiming (at least not for us) looked great on my boyfriend~4|Amazon Customer^If I could give it 0 stars I would. The printed tux on the shirt was like 1/4 the size of the shirt. Waste of money and I better get a refund. This is trash.~3|Will^Great shirt. Arrived in excellent time.~5|Victoria R Green^Love Nightmare before Xmas so this shirt is awesome&#44. Fit decently&#44 thick material but comfortable~5|

  3. paige miller^great shirt~5|Amazon Customer^I purchased both of these for my husband and as he is a big fan of the Minions he loves them. Great quality and he gets a lot of compliments.~5|Evelyn^My shirt came in on time and fits well. Great product.~5|J S Mooney^|b.brook^Soft material&#44 good quality shirt. Love Macho Man. My son is 5′ 8″&#44 weighs about 140 pounds&#44 the medium fits great.~5|Amazon Prime Customer^Great quality and fit. Fast delivery.~5|Stephen K.^Quality shirt to honor one of the greatest. Material is very comfortable.~5|Nate^Awesome shirt for any Macho Man fan!~5|Jonny^Ooooh yeah! Rising to the top!!~5|Amazon Customer^Great product.~5|JEFF^Great shirt all around~5|Amazon Customer^The cream of the crop~5|Amazon Customer^Perfect.~5|MistyMistyLynn^I’m not sure what I was thinking when I bought this shirt for my boyfriend&#44 but let’s just say that it appeared to magically transform him into the cream of the crop. As he slowly crept from side to side uttering nonsense with a supremely forceful whisper&#44 I could see that this was a real deal Macho Man T-shirt. Use your discretion. Super soft cotton&#44 too.~5|Amazon Customer^This shirt has caused way to many problems in my marriage as I can no longer wear it outside of my house. Just wanted a super soft shirt to practice karate and drink beers in but the amount of attention this shirt gives me from the ladies is unbearable. Do not buy unless you are prepared for the awesomness that comes with this.~5|Kindle Customer^The cream of the crop. I’ve given this shirt almost as many stars as the numbers of creamers used in Macho Man’s video.~5|Lupercali^Can you dig it? Very cool retro shirt&#44 size was perfect and fits as describe. Quality shirt and a very fair price.~5|Terri Jo^My son loved this shirt. One of his childhood wrestling favorites.~5|Amazon Customer^So sadly disappointed in this shirt. I was soooo pumped to get this shirt&#44 but it’s the most boxy&#44 uncomfortable & cheap material they could find. It’s a great design&#44 but the actual shirt is equal to a $10 Wal-Mart special.~3|Jake Pinelli^This shirt makes me feel like the cream of the crop&#44 oh yea brother~5|Amazon Customer^Ive elbow dropped 16 people since I received this shirt and it has improved the damage output by at least 400%. 10/10 would buy again~5|Joni Wilson^I love the feel of this shirt&#44 even though it was a bit larger than I expected! Super comfortable!~5|Amazon Customer^Love the shirt&#44 very comfortable! Only thing is I have these urges now to snap into a slim Jim.~5|

  4. edward yado^its great my son likes it~5|maria vogler^Fits good and keep you warm~5|Mandimwpink7^It is sooooooo cute and really comfy! I LIVE the black color and logo.~5|Pranee Terry^I bought htis for my 14 year old son and he enjoys it very much. This price was better than others I had seen on the web.~4|Lamia^Nice hat&#44good fabric&#44 like the picture&#44 fitts well&#44 thick but not too thick. It is nice. I liked it anyway and my brother too. So recommend it yeah~4|marikza^Nice.~5|Emeli Gavarrete^its the perfect little beanie&#44 it fit really well but the diamond wasn’t white like I thought more of a blue gray~4|Ashley Ellsworth^Great fit~5|Rich^It’s a nice hat&#44 but it’s not as long as I expected&#44 so it tends to ride up above my ears. I norrmally wear a large (not extra large) hat.~3|Rodney Deck^Good~4|

  5. JDRanger^Good shirt and well done graphics. The fit was what I expected.~5|Roddy N. Melton^i ordered XL. must be XL for Asian male. too small for me.~3|Ryan Miller^It was made from cheap material&#44 I don’t expect it lasting through many washes. Thin material with loose fitting sleeve~4|

  6. Raider^Love my new hat! I like showing off who I am and this hat does just that! I’m a proud combat engineer that served in the army! Walking around with this hat let’s everyone know I served my time for this country. The hat fits as expected. And you can also add different hat pins to the hat which is great.~5|Christian Michael Johnson^Great quality hat. Exactly as advertised.~5|jim^Nice fit hat&#44well built!~4|Ellen Vignone^Perfect in every way.~5|Clement K. Brown^Always wanted one.~5|

  7. Ransom^Westley was right; this is terribly comfortable&#44 and I’m not sure why everyone isn’t wearing them by now. It did take a little running around town to find a mask that worked properly with the wrap&#44 but it was worth it.The wrap fit well&#44 and with its terry headband&#44 and I feel it would be fine headwear for fencing&#44 fighting&#44 anything anyone will teach you. And if you’re out looking for True Love&#44 well&#44 it is a dashing piece&#44 isn’t it?In the end&#44 it worked a treat for our Halloween theme. I only wish the drink had been labelled with “Good night. Sleep well. I’ll most likely kill you in the morning” or at least “I do not envy you the headache you will have when you wake.~5|Jim Dunn^The quality is fine and the lining for the front is a plus&#44 making it more comfortable. These are cut on the large size so be aware of that going in. I normally wear a 7/12 hat size so often a lot of the “one size fits all” do not work for me. This wrap is still plenty roomy&#44 and allows me to wear it behind the ears or over the ears. If you have a small head&#44 you may be swimming in this&#44 but for those with larger heads this product works quite nicely. Shipping was prompt as well.~4|Naomi-Daos^The picture shown is not the same as the product. The picture makes it look like the ties are wide and long and flowing like a pirate&#44 which is what I bought it for&#44 but it is not like that at all. The ties are maybe half that length and very skinny. This wrap was designed for underneath a motorcycle helmet so if that is what you are looking for then this is for you&#44 but if you are looking for an accessory to a pirate costume you will be disappointed. I found this because I did a search for the dread pirate Roberts costume. It was a let down.~4|Kyle Richards^Best quality durag purchased yet&#44 this one from ZANheadgear; is thicker cotton with sewn-in frontal sweatband; has not shrunk much after repetive wash compared to similar purchased; it’s 3-corner tails are lengthy.Is as shown&#44 black with Nickel-sized silvery ZAN logo at bottom rear tail.Like Best: Keeps meager hair from catching flame while playing Fabricator; fits well despite head size Large-Atypical; not fussy to mount/keep in place as bandanna; better than Ball Cap and other rag owned at keeping sweat out|PennyPincher^This was my headpiece for Pirate Night on a recent cruise. I like that it tied to adjust the size/tightness to my comfort. Along with huge gold hoop earrings and a wenchy style top over black slacks&#44 I managed to pull off a look to fit the occassion without spending much money at all. This piece is the only one I probably will not get any additional use out of… but maybe I will find a way.~5|A. Larson^I have no complaints about this product. Good quality&#44 good price&#44 and large enough for those of us with oversized heads.~5|S. Crockett^I bought this head wrap for my son to use with a pirate costume he was putting together – he wanted a bandana that would be easy to use plus give him the right look. This product fit the bill perfectly – it fit&#44 it was easy to tie&#44 and it looked great. The only reason it’s 4 instead of 5 stars is because some of the stitching was coming loose in one of the corners and I had to do a quick sew. Also&#44 I had to touch up with the iron after washing. But those were both very minor issues&#44 and overall&#44 the material was great (not flimsy) and my son said it was comfortable and didn’t slide around.~4|Spencer M^Makes me feel like a ramen shop worker&#44 and I like that! Unfortunately I bought these as replacement for my culinary school hat uniform&#44 and they wouldn’t allow it… jerks!~5|Charlie^This is one of the best designed Head Wraps that I’ve come across! It fits well&#44 and I love the forehead sweat band. I can wear this alone or under a hard hat.~5|the anonymous one^ZANheadgear Flydanna 100% Cotton head wrap was purchased for my husband. He wore it while working on a construction project. He said that the built in sweatband did a good job keeping the sweat out of his eyes. He said it was comfortable and the extra longs ties allowed him to get a snug and secure fit. I like it because it is 100% cotton. The mesh head wraps are nice&#44 but I like the extra protection of the cotton for his thinning hairline. The long ties also added some protection for his neck from the sun too&#44 but not a replacement for sunscreen.~4|

  8. Calliecox808^So I am pretty darn satisfied with the jacket. Super warm and great look. Although&#44 I am a tad bit disappointed with the size of the P!ATD Logo-it’s smaller than I expected. But still great buy. Would do it again any time.~4|Jack Marton^The print on the front isn’t straight but it’s close enough. The cuffs of the sleeves are way too small&#44 it’s hard to pull them up to look at my watch. But it’s really soft and works just fine as a light/medium jacket~4|AMC^I still like the jacket&#44 but in the picture the colors are very vibrant&#44 the jacket I received is very dull. A little disappointed about that&#44 but that’s what you get when you order stuff online I guess.~3|

  9. Ruby Rhue^Received the wrong size&#44 was late&#44 and looked as though printer was running out of ink. My son is so very disappointed.~3|Walter Fosuhene^Camila E Groth is a FraudI hope you get hit by a Car.~3|Andie M.^Great shirt! Got a medium for a 9 yr old boy. Fits great.~5|E.W.^Great shirt. Fits perfectly! Colors have remained vibrant through washing.~5|celeste m. arrington^HE WON’T TAKE IT OFF.~5|Amazon Customer^Child loves it!~5|

  10. Teresa Vance^Exactly as described.~5|EJJR^Fits as expected~4|tgar^great hat~5|vincent evbodaghe^It did meet my expectations~4|lonewolfz28^I’ve got a couple acres of swamp down back&#44 which means bugs…lots of bugs. That makes anything from gardening to mowing nearly unbearable. I was spraying on enough DEET to ruin the plastic covers on my headphones and it still wasn’t keeping the flies and mosquitoes off my face and neck. That much DEET just wasn’t healthy.This hat keeps them off of my neck and from buzzing constantly in my ears. I still get a few brave ones that will dare an occasional direct frontal attack. But&#44 those are easily swatted or blown away.It has held up very well through five months of weekly washings.~5|Kenneth L. Mishoe&#44 III^I’ve had various issues with skin cancers. Have bought all kinds of head/hat protection for some years now. Just as my wife shops for the perfect handbag&#44 I’ve been on the quest for the perfect sun hat/protection for golfing and other outdoor activities. This one is it! It is all it claims to be and more. Fits as advertised. Easy to wash/clean. Doesn’t look as goofy as many alternates. Most importantly&#44 besides the sun protection&#44 it lets all the air in and all the heat out. Bought two different colors. Happy with both.~5|Ducks^A cap that is much nicer than I anticipated. Good material&#44 great design&#44 and a comfortable fit will make this the summer go to cap for fishing and boating. I actually made this purchase to take to Africa and now realize that this is a cap that will also get a lot of use after we return home. And the pricing just can’t be beat!~5|ian godfrey^I bought this hat for mowing my giant yard. I am very pale so I constantly had a sun burned neck. This hat is exactly what I needed. The material that covers you neck is a LOT cooler than I was expecting! It’s not the coolest looking hat&#44 but style was the least or my concerns. Great product and value.~5|C Klimesh^I love this cap. I take a walk every morning and even when I wore a wide brimmed western hat&#44 the sun still hit the sidea of my face&#44 making me hot and want to hurry back instead of taking a longer walk. I tried fitting bandannas into my western hat to hang down and do what this cap does much more elegantly ! When I first head out&#44 the sun hasn’t quite come up yet&#44 so I flip the mesh panels back so I have greater peripheral vision. But as soon as the sun comes up I bring the mesh panels back forward to shield my face. It is cool&#44 comfortable&#44 and you can still see out of the mesh. I didn’t mention that I really don’t like to wear sunscreen on my face so this is really perfect for me. I love this hat and as soon as I used it for a few days&#44 I bought a spare !~5|Special education^Lightweight and adjustable. It keeps the sun off of the back of my neck and shoulders. The side flaps adjust for more or less coverage.~5|J. Proulx^Long flap&#44 light&#44 adjustable&#44 washable and with a removable neck flap if you don’t need it. What more could you want in a travel cap to keep the sun away?Quick note: this cap is a “low-profile” cap so it probably would not fit well on a large head.~4|Terryo^A good quality lightweight mesh-type neck protector cap. I’ve purchased six of these so far and will order more.~5|Marianne E.^I got this to wear on vacation where I am out in the sun for hours. I burn easily and this keeps the sun off my entire head yet is not too hot to wear because of the good ventilation. I only wish I had bought this sooner!~5|Hitek^Works Great Also Super Fast Shipping Thanks !!!!!!!!~5|

  11. Hi I’m truly excited I found this site, I actually found you by mistake, when I was browsing on Bing for mobdro for iphone. Anyways I’m here right now and would just enjoy to say cheers for a fantastic blog post and the all round impressive site (I also adore the theme), I do not have sufficient time to look over it all at the moment yet I have saved it and also added the RSS feed, so whenever I have sufficient time I will be returning to read much more. Make sure you do continue the awesome work.

  12. Lisa Alexander^Hubby bought this because no matter what he’s doing he would rather be fishing then anything else. He loves this hat and says it is so comfortable. Fits very well. Would highly recommend to anyone~5|christina Griesemer^got this for my husband the fit is good he like the low profile caps. He thought it was really cute and will wear it a lot especially fishing!~5|Patricia^Great hat&#44 good quality for both the hat material and the lettering. I bought it as a gift and they loved it!~5|B. Ali^Perfect fit and perfect look. this is a high quality item and I will get allot of years service with this hat.~5|AG_Mom^My Dad has a smaller head&#44 so this hat was perfect. I like the adjustable strap in the back. He said he would wear it all the time!!!~5|Rachel Gammal^Love love love this hat but it runs a bit small. Great quality and color is true to the picture.~4|

  13. M. Oburg^Perhaps a good shirt&#44 but not the same fabric as another Disney T-Shirt I have of the same size that fits perfectly. This fabric stretches to fit me&#44 but I HATE tight fitting shirts. So it will hang in the closet for the day I shrink enough to wear it. Disappointing.~3|Still Looking for a Good Book^product took 2 months to arrive and shipped item was NOT A DISNEY product&#44 rather an chinese made t-shirt with the MM image poorly printed on the front. It’s a fake/knock-off/counterfeit. Call it what you want&#44 it’s not what you want.~3|Kim W.^Looks faded and cheap&#44 definitely doesn’t appear authentic. Mickey is smaller than he seems to be on the photo. Would not repurchase but it served its purpose while at disney world.~4|bamagrl^I don’t understand why manufacturers are getting away from using good quality cotton!? This shirt is a thinner material and cut smaller. Order a size up and even then I wouldn’t dry it.~3|Kim^It is ALL polyster. It is cheaply made and a really poor quality overall. It came weeks later. No return slip. I could not be more dissatisfied.~3|Jim^Nice shirt&#44 good quality but way too small for an XL. It’s closer to a M-L than XL.~3|Joseph Tingen^Awful quality! The ne k of the shirt isn’t as thick as it appears and the Mickey is totally faded! I’m so mad! I ordered this for our Disney trip next week and now we are out a shirt. Terrible quality! Don’t waste your money!~3|Amazon Customer^This was not a T-Shirt. It was made out of a silky like material. We did not like it at all&#44 we ordered it wanting a cotton T-Shirt to wear to my Granddaughters birthday party. Super disappointed!~4|Katherine^The picture would make you think this is a light gray shirt&#44 but it is actually pretty dark. The shirt and Mickey’s ear color is practically the same. Additionally&#44 the fabric isn’t the softest. It’s ok… nothing special.~3|bugsinHawaii^Many comments. I just love it~5|

  14. Amazon Customer^This is a great uniform. My husband loves it. We would definitely order this product again. Seems to be holding up in the wash&#44 as well.~5|Tracy F^Perfect fit&#44 good quality~5|AmazingShopper^Awesome! I’m loving this.~5|Fullmetvl^Pretty cheap for the quality of the material&#44 I’m really happy with it. It came faster than I thought so if you’re looking to buy something cheap for your kids&#44 here it’s the right place.~5|Sara Radomski^as described.~4|Amazon Customer^I was surprised at how quality the material ordering two more after receiving my order. it came 2weeks before the listed delivery time.~5|Amazon Customer^Thanks!!! Comfortable and durable!~5|Francisco Seghezzo^good looking&#44 good quality~5|MUSTAFA.S.ALKHABAZ^Wonderful~5|

  15. Amazon Customer^What I received was not at all what was advertised or shown in the photo. I ordered a medium&#44 which fits like a small. The print on the shirt is terribly done. It’s very blurry and not at all the clear “vintage distressed” looking style of the shirt advertised. To top it all off&#44 the shirt isn’t even made out of cotton! It’s a cheap spandex material. (And to hide this they didn’t attach any manufacturing label.) This is a complete scam. I have no idea how there are any positive reviews if this is the kind of product you are delivering.I’ve attached two photos. 1. The logo is obviously too small for a shirt&#44 blown up in photoshop and therefore very distorted2. Showing that the fabric is not cotton~3|Sarah^This shirt looks nothing like the shirt pictured. The image and print is of extremely poor quality. The shirt feels very cheap and fits slightly small. I will be returning this for sure.~3|jennifer^Great shirt. Great fit. Very soft and comfortable!! Ordered on a Monday&#44 received on Wednesday just in time to wear to a Soundgarden concert! Don’t remember much but I sure looked good!!~5|Michael Simmons^Design is much smaller than pictured&#44 and is badly crooked/offset as well. The graphic itself looks fuzzy&#44 as if it was scaled up and then printed with very cheap ink – which is very likely since the product came from China. Look elsewhere for official merch because this is definitely not it.~3|Amazon Consumer^The fit is awesome&#44 semi slim large. However the logo is off center. I woiuld be very annoyed ifI had paid more for the product.~3|Arielle^AWESOME SHIRT! I wear it ALL the time. The material is nice and soft&#44 not a bulky cotton. Very comfortable and it handles the washer and dryer well! This company needs to make more bands T shirts!~5|Jordan Gow^Not 100% cotton. Looks and feels like knock-off Nike Drifit material. Blurry print. Very cheaply made and a waste of money. Worst t-shirt I own. Makin’ lemonade out of lemons though and cutting the sleeves off for use as a jogging top. Only reason it’s getting a one-star rating.~3|Roberto^Great design but it is larger than expected&#44 I followed the advice of the reviewers and ordered 1 size over my normal size and was a mistake !!~5|D-Unit^I like the shirt. It was a good deal for one of my favorite bands&#44 and I had a shirt just like it in high school. It shrunk a little when I washed it&#44 which was to be expected&#44 but overall&#44 it’s great and at a good price. I’ll probably pick up another one so I have a spare.~5|Jamie C.^Classic shirt. Great album cover equals great T-shirt. This is a shirt to get for the rock/grunge fan you know&#44 or yourself! It is made to look like it’s already beaten up and worn as a brand-new shirt – just a little warning as it’s not necessarily apparent from the photos. But I think it gives it a really cool vintage look (which is what they were going for). I actually like the look of this shirt a lot more than in the photos. Highly recommended for fans of Soundgarden. RIP Chris Cornell.~5|
