PDGA rule for clothing?

Postby CJ1998 » Thu Jul 03, 2008 2:15 am

Is there a standard for the type of shirt worn in a PDGA event? My friend and I were curious about this. It seems someone told him that there needs to be a collar on the shirt, like a Polo, for example. But then I see stuff like this. On his shirt, there is no winged collar (is that the right term for it?) but there is a collar that fits snugly around his neck.

8.3 Dress Code

8.3.1 All players in PDGA sanctioned competitions are expected to dress appropriately and maintain a clean and well-groomed appearance at all Event sites and all associated functions.

8.3.2 The following dress code for all competitors will be enforced at all PDGA National Tour and Major Events. The PDGA also recommends that this dress code be enforced at SuperTour and lower tier events, but this decision lies solely with the Tournament Director:

* All players must wear a shirt covering their upper chest area. A well-tailored shirt with a fold-down, mock turtle, v-neck, crew neck, Henley, or zippered collar, and with sleeves covering the part of the arm from the shoulder to the elbow (commonly known as the upper arm), shall be considered acceptable. Women are also allowed to wear sleeveless shirts as designated above.

* No tee shirts will be allowed, except for competitors in the Junior and Amateur divisions during preliminary rounds only. Juniors and Amateurs shall not wear tee shirts during semifinal or final rounds. Crew neck or V-neck shirts made of high-performance or high-tech materials, such as Dry-Fit, Cool-Max, and others will be allowed.

* Shirts that hang down lower than the bottom hemline on the player's shorts shall be tucked in.

* No ripped shirts, shorts, pants will be allowed on the course. This includes unhemmed, torn or cut "vents" at the shirt collar.

* No offensive, profane, or obscene slogans or logos shall be allowed on any clothing. For example, clothing supporting alcohol, tobacco, bad music, conservative politics or religion are prohibited.

* Shoes or other foot coverings must be worn. Players will not be allowed to play in bare feet. Sandals or slides are allowed.

8.3.3 This dress code will be in effect from start to finish at each event, including all tournament rounds. Players who do not make the final cut, but wish to remain on site through the duration of the tournament, will be considered spectators and will not be required to conform to the Tour's dress code.

8.3.4 Any player in breach of the dress code will be warned for the first offense by a Tournament Official or PDGA Marshal, may be required to change attire immediately at the official's discretion, and will under all circumstances be required to change attire prior to the restart of their next round. For any additional offenses, players will be subject to disqualification by the Tournament Director, and may also be subject to suspension from PDGA events at the discretion of the PDGA Commissioner.

Promoting bad music, conservative politics or religion are done at your own peril but not from PDGA officials... :)

At my last tournament , we had a guy that got pissed off, because he took his shirt off for the second round, and was told to put it back on.

Thanks for clearing that up for me. I guess I need to sit down and spend some time with a PDGA manual. It's on their website, isn't it?

There is something in there about "crew neck dri-fit shirts" which describes that Huk shirt Feldberg is wearing. Looks like a T-shirt but it's a wicking tech material.

Sounds like it would be a good idea to check with the TD and have a backup shirt available.
