Default does athletic shirt have to cover all of the upper arm

I am playing a tourney tomorrow and I am wondering if the athletic shirt has to cover all of the upper arm or a portion of it.

3.4 Dress Code

A. All violations of the Dress Code Policy shall be considered a Courtesy Violation under Section 801.01 of the PDGA Official Rules of Play.

B. All competitors and staff are required to wear a shirt.

C. All competitors and staff are required to wear shoes or other foot coverings. Players will not be allowed to play in bare feet. Sandals or slides are allowed.

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

(1) All players in PDGA sanctioned competition and tournament staff are expected to dress appropriately and to maintain a clean and well-groomed appearance at all event sites and associated functions.


(2) 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.


(3) 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.

(4) Shirts that hang down lower than the bottom hemline on the player’s shorts shall be tucked in.

(5) No ripped shirts, shorts, pants will be allowed on the course. This includes unhemmed, torn or cut “vents” at the shirt collar.

(6) No offensive, profane, or obscene slogans or logos shall be allowed on any clothing. Junior players may not wear slogans or logos referring to alcohol or tobacco.

(7) This dress code will be in effect from start to finish at each event, including all tournament rounds.

(8) Players who do not make a 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.

Forgot to highlight section D before the 5 min edit kicked in:

The shirt I plan on wearing covers most of my arm but is about a quarter of an inch short of my elbow.

I don't think I have a single shirt with sleeves that go all the way to my elbow, that would feel weird.

That rule is basically a no tank tops rule, anything with typical t-shirt/polo type sleeves is perfectly fine.

I can't see anyone trying to make people wear sleeves to the elbow. That would be fun to watch

LOL.........wouldn't your shirt "technically" not fit if your sleeves went all the way to the elbow?

Hopefully this thread doesn't get too much traffic or else some people are gonna get a bit crazy handing out warnings and strokes
