The Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) has released a new dress code for women and professional golfer Paige Spiranac is one of a few female golfers who are not happy about it.
The new dress code prohibits ladies from wearing tops with plunging necklines, short skirts, workout gear or racerback tops without a collar, which came as a surprise to Spiranac, who has often been seen in short skirts and skin tight tops while playing.
Untucked shirts, and clothes that don't fit (too tight or loose) should be added. Because I think that looks unprofessional as well too

Spiranac made her feelings known about the new rules, tweeting earlier this week: "Untucked shirts, and clothes that don't fit (too tight or loose) should be added. Because I think that looks unprofessional as well too."
The New York Golf Center showed Inside Edition a few outfits that are approved for the green, including a sleeveless top with a collar.
Marika Washchyshyn, a writer for Golf.com, also reacted to the rule.
"The players want to be comfortable," she said. "But they also want to look good."
Amid the uproar, the LGPA made a statement regarding the dress code.
"Recent comments in the media about a 'new' LPGA dress code are much to do about nothing. We simply updated our existing policy with minor clarifications, which were directed by our members for our members.
"This is not a regression, but rather a clarification for members of the policy, with references relevant to today's fashion styles.
"There was not meant to be, nor will there be, a discernible difference to what players are currently wearing out on Tour."
