Popular LPGA player Sandra Gal wrote an interesting story for USA TODAY Sports last week. Sandra says that there is still a long way to go before there is equality in the women’s and men’s professional tours.

Back to Back Majors.  Worked once, why not again?

One way to generate similar excitement for the women’s tour is to always schedule the majors back to back and at the same venue, as the men’s majors. This happened for the first time at the US Open in 2014 and gained positive feedback, but the USGA has not continued that manner of scheduling for 2015.

Men and women compete in the same event?

Even better, Gal asks “Why not create an event in which we can compete together?” Gal says that, aside from power, there is little difference in the short game and putting skills between the men and women. Sandra suggests that the women play from shorter tees, to compensate for the power issue.

I love Sandra’s enthusiasm for this idea, especially where she asks “How cool of a fan experience would that be?”

Sandra Gal is suggesting the PGA and LPGA play together in the same event. Cool idea or Crazy idea?

This is a topic that has been on my mind for a long time. And I am not talking about clothing here, but about creating a world-class event, in which the best women and men compete together.

Our tour is on the rise (significantly). We make better money every year. And yes, we are proud of how far we have come (Thank you commissioner Mike Whan). But. Why is there still such a huge gap between women’s and men’s golf? I could give you a few reasons, but none of them deter me from my dream of equality. You have to dream big to achieve change…otherwise things like Title IX would have never happened
