LPGA issues new dress code for female golfers: Alicia VItarelli reports during Action News at 4:30 p.m. on July 19, 2017. (WPVI)

The LPGA is facing backlash for over a strict new dress code for its female golfers.

The Ladies Professional Golf Association rolled out an updated policy on what women can and can't wear on the golf course - a list critics are calling "body-shaming."

On the list: racerback tank tops without a collar, short skirts and "plunging necklines."

The new rules go in to effect this weekend at the 2017 Marathon Classic in Toledo, Ohio.

The LPGA calls it a "return to tradition," but the move is facing stark criticism from fans and golfers alike.

Failure to meet the new dress code comes with a $1,000 fine.
