What a Bunch of Whiners

The PGA actually anticipates a movement to change the written bylaws of the tour. This is the same group who fought to keep Casey Martin from using a golf cart on the tour.

Someone needs to remind them that they’ve got some of the best jobs in the world – being paid to play a sport that they love. Point out that hiding from women golfers does wonders for their image. And tell them that the tour sponsors have already had enough of Martha Burk without them pouring gas on the fire.

I’ve watched zero non-major tournaments in the past ten years – but I’ll be watching the Colonial today. Tighten the rules on sponsor exemptions if necessary. But don’t insult us by letting people like Mark Rypien play while keeping a player as talented as Sorenstam out.
