Every once in awhile, someone advances the opinion that since the PGA Tour has no gender rules1, the LPGA Tour should ditch their "women only" rule, too.
I never understood how someone could advance such a theory, but those who believe it tend to be bizarrely adamant that they're right.
How can you possibly explain to someone how (insert a synonym for "stupid" of the appropriate strength here) that opinion is? They're clearly missing some massive part of their brain that is responsible for logic, reasoning, and perhaps common sense.</minirant>
- If a woman ever qualified to be a member, there are no rules to prevent it. Women are allowed to receive sponsor exemptions to play in PGA Tour events - that's how Michelle Wie and Annika Sorenstam have played PGA Tour events in recent years.↩
