If you haven’t heard about the LPGA Tour’s random new dress code rules, it’s basically telling its players to replace skirts with pants and tank tops with more skin covering shirts. Major champion, Lexi Thomspon had a little fun with this new policy, by sharing a picture from last year, of her wearing old fashioned golf attire.
In the photo, she is completely covered, so this throws a little shade at the LPGA Tour. Keep in mind, it’s just a little joke, as Thompson is widely respected as a class act.
The picture taken was in celebration of golf’s return to the Olympics. The idea was to dress players in golf clothes from back in 1904, since that was previously the last time golf was seen in the games.
What’s head scratching about the dress code is that there was never a player who showed too much skin. What some of the ladies wear looks comfortable and probably helps them play their best golf.
What’s funny is that, in a time where PGA Tour pros are praying to be able to wear shorts, the LPGA Tour is going in a slightly opposite direction. PGA Tour players want what LPGA Tour pros had; a little more comfort in on-course dress.
I absolutely love the LPGA and what they do for golf, as well as the excitement of each tournament. However, I kindly disagree with this code, as do many others.
But, it shouldn’t stop us from enjoying one of the best professional tours in all of golf. Right now though, I must give a golf clap to Lexi for coming up with this innocent and savage Instagram post.
