Philadelphia PGA Board of Directors Amends Tournament Dress Code Policy

The Philadelphia PGA Board of Directors amended Article VIII, Section 8.17 of its Tournament Rules and Regulations on Thursday, which affects the dress code for all all sponsored, co-sponsored and sanctioned events conducted in the Section. The change, effective immediately, allows male PGA Professionals to wear shorts from July 1 – August 31. No cargo or denim shorts will be permitted.

During the July 1 – August 31 time period, the Philadelphia PGA Tournament Committee may select events where shorts will not be permitted. The committee will also have the ability outside of this time frame to allow shorts if the weather conditions are severe enough to warrant it.

Women PGA Professionals may continue to wear culottes, shorts, or golf skirts in Section events.
