Bam Bam will play in the Barbasol Championship opposite the Open next month.



272 yd driving average should give Lincicome a better shot than Annika.



Nevermind, I forgot Annika was pretty long in her heyday (averaged 269 yds in 2003, the year she played Colonial).
Try playing golf w/ fewer than 10 clubs
Chick Evans carried seven clubs
when he won the 1916 U.S. Open.

    Heard that Phil and his moobs are being offered a sponsor's exemption into a La Leche League event.

    Women competing in Men's events are so 2000's. Now what will really gain my interest is when Steve a scrub-alternate who couldn't cut it on his D2 college team decides to become Stephanie and compete as the first transgender member of the LPGA. Our little golf chatroom discussions will immediately become much more interesting lol

    Stupid. It proves nothing if she makes the cut, and nothing if she doesn't.

    I’m not a big fan of stunts in sports. I’m especially not a fan of stunts that set up women for failure and lead to more “Could Your Average Male First Time Golfer Beat Your Average LPGA Player?” threads on Golfwrx.

    Does anyone really care about this? "0" care about Brittney

    Yep, about the only female pro worth watching play against the men would be Ariya if she could learn to hit the driver consistently well.

    Given the state of her chipping and putting I expect her to have a very poor showing.

    It's just a stupid golf tournament. Is all this outrage really warranted?

    Very negative (and pointlessly so) response so far. Weird because this is a women's golf fan subforum. Almost every single pro golf tournament has some sponsor invitations in the field. It's of no interest, that is until someone known like Brittany, or Jerry Rice, or Steph Curry is invited. Then suddenly everyone's full of snark.



    I am rooting for Brittany and I'm surprised that literally nobody else here is. She has a lot of swing speed and call me stupid but I believe she could make the cut.

    I personally don't care one way or the other, I'm over the the hole women against the men thing. I got no issue with the gals playing in the events, it just doesn't move the needle for me one way or the other. Like KBong says it won't be the length gets Brittany in a PGA event it will be the short game. PGA like to shave it around the greens giving you tight lies with green misses. When all things are relative that's the biggest difference between the LPGA and PGA, the execution of the short game. That said I hope Brittany finishes at least 10th cause with that she'll at least get a bigger payout than an actual LPGA win lol

    Outrage over nothing is sort of the male equivalent to watching movies that make you cry so you have an excuse to wolf down a whole box of chocolates.

    For the same reason that major leaguers don’t play in the Little League World Series. Going up a level or two is not the same as dropping down.

    Didn't say a PGA player...maybe a Web.com player...a male senior...maybe a WRX'er.

    For those saying that length won't be an issue, you do realize that she will be the shortest hitter in the field?
