As a woman who has “grown up in a man’s world” in the business of high technology, I am pretty used to getting treated with respect and equally among my peers (with a few exceptions that don’t deserve to be mentioned). So, I was quite amazed by all the excitement of the LPGA playing at St Andrews. One…I didn’t know this was a first (shame on me) and two…I couldn’t believe that it’s take this long to let the LPGA grace the fairways of the home of golf (shame on them – whoever “them” are).
This is going to be a wonderful tournament to watch and I am hopeful that the viewing audience on TV is beyond anything we’ve seen before. The quality of golf on the LPGA is better than it has ever been (IMHO) and perhaps this championship will open the eyes of golfers who have been slow to acknowledge (or ever watch) the women show off their amazing skills.
I would love Annika to win this one – she is still the queen of golf in my book.
Back at you tomorrow…
