There is usually a course rule that golfers shouldn't run around in cutoff jeans, play barefoot and take off their shirts. Generally I'm fine with these rules and usually its for a good reason. If you've ever seen some of the beer-swilling males that play game, you'll understand why the topless rule is in place.  But as a male, and a golfer, I'm struggling to figure out why this is a bad thing....

According to the Daily Herald (Chicago):

Two Missouri women are accused of showing off more than their putting skills at a southwestern Illinois golf course.

Madison County Sheriff’s Capt. T. Mike Dixon says investigators responded to complaints of lewd behavior Monday at the Woodlands Golf Course in Foster Township and saw the women displaying their breasts.

Now, authorities in Madison County have charged 45-year-old Shelly Lewis and 43-year-old Alicia Binford of O’Fallon, Mo., with public indecency.

Binford and Lewis couldn’t be reached for comment Tuesday. Binford’s home telephone number has been disconnected. Lewis hasn’t returned a message left at her home. Court records don’t show if they have an attorney.

Both women are free on bond.

Now, if I was on the golf course on that day, and two women wanted to expose themselves, I don't think I'd complain...at least to the police. I'd probably just say to my playing partners"boy isn't the scenery at this golf course nice today" and go back to my putting.

Yet, a helpful commenter on the Daily Herald article "exposed" more of the pertinent details and pointed readers to another publication's website.

According to the Riverfront Times, St. Louis' "alternative" weekly:

Police were called to Woodlands Golf Course (2839 Harris Lane, Alton, Illinois) at 2 p.m. Monday after a citizen complained that women were "exposing their sexual organs" on the links. Let the record show that it was not a golfer who made the complaint, but rather someone who could see the women from the road.

Police stationed themselves on Wood Station Road and Woodland Hills Drive on the northeastern side of the golf course. Captain Mike Dixon of the Sheriff's Department confirms that "We set up there because that's where they caller had observed them." And sure enough, they did indeed spot two women exposing their breasts in a lewd fashion.

Those women are Alicia L. Binford, 43, and Shelly L. Lewis, 45. Police duly arrested them on charges of misdemeanor indecency. They were held on a $100 bond, which they have since paid.

Now the photos of these ladies make it appear that they seem to be upstanding citizens (aside from their penchant for exposing themselves and the apparent topless mug shots). Just another day on the golf links in Illinois.

They probably have nice personalities too.
