They had an event this year. I think it was either in Jordan or omam, I'm not sure. It was for ladies european tour players, senior European tour players and challenge tour ( level below regularEuropean tour). They did some equations based on average drive length of the respective tours and determined the tee boxes accordingly. A challenge tour guy won iirc but a woman was second and the top 20 had plenty of each grouping. The Australian LPGA/euro event at the start of the season has 2 separate events equal prize money same course where the groupings are alternate, 3 women tee off then 3 men etc. I think Celine Bouiter won the women's section.

Not sure how feasible the Jordan event is going forward cos there will always be arguments about how equal the hole length is etc. Would like to see a high profile mixed doubles event on the PGA or European tour though for sure.

Would like to know how much of the prize money for the Open comes from the TV rights, because now that the R&A runs the British Open for women it should sell the rights as a package with the men's and split the prize money equally, but I would guess they would argue that the prize fund comes from additional sources too.

wife and i were sitting at a bar eating lunch and caught the last two holes by chance. we were both chuckling at shibuno's (very charming) goofiness, like literally joking about how she was acting like she had never been in a big tournament before i googled her and found out....she had never been in a big tournament. then she turned out to be a stone cold assassin on that winning 20-footer. what an awesome story.

hideki has p much eliminated the pause at the top of his world is all askew.

jordan's swing is looking way better with the driver compared to the last 2 years.

brooks on his 'rivalry' with rory - "there is no rivalry. rory hasn't won a major since i've been on tour". Ouch.

Golf now good.

Wow, that was a wild few minutes where the actual President of the USA was following me on Twitter and even sent me a message. Shame it ended so badly 😭

Watching Dechambeau win in Detroit today was amazing. Averaging 350.6 yards off the tee, hitting an 8 iron 2nd shot from the rough on a par 5 230 yards onto the green. Just ridiculous. P funny when they put his swing side by side with Chris Kirk's and started them at the same time which shows that Bryson swings it so fast that he had hit the ball before Chris Kirk had even got to the top of his back swing.

I've never met a non-anglo who was into golf (not judging btw, and I don't mean this sarcastically).

uspga 2nd week in august. brooks going for 3 in a row.

tiger back playing on thurs in the memorial at muirfield village, 9 of the top 10 taking part should be good.

oscar bravo, Tuesday, 14 July 2020 16:13 (three weeks ago) link

lol bryson first round of memorial, starting at 10th tee

10- 353 yard drive
11- 362 yard drive
13- 359 yard drive
17- 407 yard drive
1- 423 yard drive

i only saw the first 2 both of which were in the fairway so it's not like he's long and crooked. seriously think if he played st andrews in the summer time he'd drive 6 or 7 of the par 4s. ridiculous.
