US Women's Open at Trump National may be unpredictable

  US Women's Open at Trump National may be unpredictable This U.S. Women's Open is going to be unpredictable, and we're not just talking about the golf. The biggest event in women's golf will share the spotlight with President Donald Trump. His Trump National Golf Club is the site of the tournament that starts Thursday and has no clear favorite. It's uncertain whether Trump will attend the event, which runs through Sunday.The USGA awarded the site in 2012 and later came under pressure from women's groups and three Democratic U.S.

According to a report by Ashley Mayo on GolfDigest.com, LPGA pros were sent an email on July 2 with strict new dress code rules . The email, which reportedly came from LPGA Player President Vicki Goetze-Ackerman, used somewhat harsh language to detail the new regulations .

The game of golf has long struggled to modernize and shed its stuffy public image. Attracting more young people to the sport is essential to the health and even survival of the game.

The LPGA Tour clearly missed that memo.

According to a report by Ashley Mayo on GolfDigest.com, LPGA pros were sent an email on July 2 with strict new dress code rules. The email, which reportedly came from LPGA Player President Vicki Goetze-Ackerman, used somewhat harsh language to detail the new regulations.

Here they are:

--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

The news is surprising coming from the LPGA because that Tour has often led the way in making the game exciting to young players and fans. LPGA caddies wear their players' Twitter handles on their bibs, players are sometimes mic’d up and interviewed mid-round, and the Tour generally has a fantastic reputation for giving fans in attendance an intimate experience relative to the PGA Tour.

Why, after all this progress, is the Tour taking a step backward by reinforcing golf's old-school, patrician reputation?
