Today’s LPGA players are far more than just athletes. They are inspiring a generation of women and young girls to get outside, get active and learn a sport that can take you beyond adolescence, a time when most sports are given up, and that you can play well into retirement. Now more than ever, this generation of incredible LPGA players are choosing to stand out and show their personality in their apparel choices. We are starting to see players seek out brands their style aligns with. New brands are breaking through and being noticed because players are passionate about them.
Brands have really stepped up the fashion game in golf over the last 5 years, but what do you wear if you want to dress like a pro? Where do you find that stunning blue ruffle skort that caught your eye? It isn’t always easy to find the looks you see on the players, catching a glimpse of that tiny logo doesn’t always get you the info you need to start your search. Well, lucky for you, we have done the digging for you. Priced from $45 to $145 we have options that run the gamut from “surprisingly affordable” to “worth the splurge.” We’ve got you covered with our list of golf skirts that the top LPGA golfers are donning on the course.
Nelly Korda – Naomi skort by J. Lindeberg
Nelly Korda who joined the LPGA in 2017 with a whopping 5 top ten finishes, and an additional 4 top twenty finishes out of just 23 starts, is well known for being one of the top, if not THE top player in women’s golf. Currently holding the number one spot in world rankings, Nelly is one of only 3 U.S. players to hold that coveted top position, Stacy Lewis and Cristie Kerr being the only others. In 2021 apparel brand JL, known for “bridging sport and fashion” announced the signing of a sponsorship deal with Nelly. The reigning queen of the LPGA is setting a new fashionable tone that is on par with what she brings to the tee-box. Nelly is fun and energetic with a classic, sophisticated kind of cool. That is exactly what JL is helping her bring to the table with her new threads. A recent campaign for the brand shows Nelly in the Naomi style seen here. The skort comes in a variety of colors. This one may just be worth the splurge, starting at a cool $145. You can get this look now at JLindebergUSA.com
