As a professional golf tour, the Michigan Players Tour expects its players to exhibit professional pride and a sense of responsibility in upholding the highest traditions of the game. Among these traditions are maintaining a professional appearance and observing an impeccable standard of conduct.
Men's Division Attire
Men are encouraged to wear slacks and golf shirts whenever they are on the grounds of a tournament course. Shorts are permitted, though, as even the PGA Tour, the PGA of America, and the USGA are now allowing shorts to be worn during practice rounds. No denim is allowed.
Players must also wear golf shoes during practice rounds and tournament rounds. Golf shoes must have soft spikes. Shirts must have a collar (or an acceptable alternative, such as a mock neck). Players may wear logos of sponsors -- please, no NASCAR style fire suit logo displays. Caddies must wear a collared shirt (or an acceptable alternative), and may wear shorts.
Women's Division Attire
Participants in Women's Division events have much more latitude in their dress code. In general, players should adhere to fashions acceptable to the LPGA Tour.
While competing, players should diligently observe the standards of etiquette as published by the USGA and the PGA of America. The Rules of Golf, Rule 1-2 is the principle location of these standards.
Players must control their language and temper while competing. Audible or visible outbursts, especially in the presence of spectators or media, will be subject to fines, suspension from future events, or both.
Players may check messages on cell phones during play. However, ringers must be turned off, and players must use the phone discreetly and not interrupt play if messages must be answered during a round.
If it is determined the use of the phone unfairly provided a player with information on course conditions or other advice, the player will be disqualified. .
