Jun. 7—After watching the LPGA and PGA Tour religiously for the previous two years, I’ve come to a conclusion there desires to be extra skilled co-ed golf tournaments.
I do know there are three-group co-ed occasions, nonetheless I’m speaking about one-on-one golf tournaments with the very top ladies and men going head to switch.
No, it would now not wish to be for money — it will more than likely be for charity— nonetheless I feel it will more than likely be completely appealing.
I also realize that some folks think on myth of there are men who hit it 330-plus off the tee would appropriate blow out the ladies, nonetheless I feel enjoy there’ll more than likely be ways to develop it work.
Perchance protect the occasions at a par-3 course to come to a decision on the lengthy ball out of it. I feel this might maybe be an overwhelming charity opinion.
If we’re taking half in for money, despite the incontrovertible fact that, I feel enjoy there’ll more than likely be ways to develop it happen. Even if anyone hits it that a ways off the tee, it would now not repeatedly mean they’re going to stamp a stroke on the inexperienced.
So discovering one method that every ladies and men can play from the identical tee boxes and doubtlessly taking the drivers out of the come by couldn’t only develop for an appealing round, nonetheless it can test who the beautiful ball strikers are accessible.
We saw so mighty expertise this week of golf between the PGA Tour at the Memorial Tournament and the LPGA at the Females’s U.S. Open. Why now not attach the two collectively to switch attempting to search out what happens?
I’m obvious there are a quantity of tournaments that enable co-ed play, nonetheless I wish to switch attempting to search out it on some of the crucial supreme phases in golf. It would be amazing for golf and only help the sport.
Or if anyone is in opposition to having skilled co-ed occasions — why now not dangle most of these amazing amateurs on their manner to being consultants, enjoy Megha Ganne, come collectively to play 18 and sight what happens.
Ganne will be a power within the ladies’s game within the end to future and already has constructed a large fan heinous after her tear this week.
I’d consume to switch attempting to search out Cobra gamers Bryson DeChambeau and Lexi Thompson play collectively in a competitive surroundings — on myth of why now not?
The Korda sisters are so standard already, so pairing them up with Justin Thomas, Rory McIlroy, Bubba Watson, will more than likely be completely appealing thanks to their personalities and amazing shots we would sight.
And even pit Michelle Wie West in opposition to Phil Mickelson — now I could maybe pay to label that.
There are so mighty of proficient golfers accessible — this occasion would pay for itself.
I mean, seek for at the honor Annika Sorenstam obtained at the PNC Championship from the other men. That was once memorable.
I feel folks will more than likely be surprised at how many men will more than likely be for this roughly occasion.
As a female, I play with guys every time I play golf. I do know now we dangle a quantity of tours for a motive, nonetheless coming collectively for an occasion might maybe elevate an incredible quantity of cash and showcase the ladies’s abilities on the identical stage as the boys.
Females’s golf deserves extra credit, extra TV time, extra exposure, extra money, extra all the pieces on myth of that’s what golf is all about — rising the sport for every gender.
Nonetheless, there shouldn’t be the kind of thing as a holding up how mighty extra money the PGA Tour makes over the LPGA. I realize why nonetheless at the identical time, these men have to wish to develop the ladies’s game too on myth of what if they’ve a daughter who desires to play? They wish to desire equality all over the board, and I feel co-ed occasions will more than likely be the manner to develop that happen.
