I think it would be exhilarating to watch the Professional women play the same course as the men play week in and week out.
Just imagine the greats of the LPGA playing Augusta National, Doral Bay Hill, and Muirfield Village! I definitely think the LPGA would get more viewers as well.
In general, I would like to see the LPGA compete more often on the PGA courses, with the changes that make it fair for women players, of course.
The women usually play separate courses, which are not as exciting as most men’s courses.
Last year, Juli Inkster said that the men play great golf courses week in and week out, where most of the LPGA courses are ‘good’ but not usually ‘great.’ That is why the LPGA players were all thrilled to play the 2014 U.S. Open at the famous Pinehurst No. 2 Course. The premium courses draw bigger crowds and are normally in pristine condition, leading to better scoring opportunities and excitement.
Michael Whan, Commissioner for the LPGA, tried to convince the USGA to put the Women’s Open on the same course as the men for 2015, but that didn’t happen.
Oh well, maybe this one time, it was not bad to play a different course. Sorry RTJ, Jr.!
Would you like to see the LPGA get the opportunity to play these great courses? Post your comments below.
