@85 and @87 From your responses to my post @84 I can see that, 'where ignorance is bliss it is folly to be wise'. If you are determined not to enjoy good sport, regardless of the gender of participants....
Inclined to agree with Pip. I like women's golf - I can relate to it better, feel like I learn more from it, and enjoy it. One let down is there are far fewer cameras there, confirming how little is invested, and meaning you see a lot of putts (and a lot don't go in, just like for men but you don't see so many so it looks like they hole more) rather than great iron play, shot shapes and control.
The majority of posts are comparing the mens game to the women,that is not the point.Women play golf and it should be covered as such not compared to mens.Having only 2 hours LIVE is an insult.
@86No they are not, no duplicate names on here Jon!!!I never said it had happened, just that it could so then the theory of the men getting more because they play more games becomes moot - as I said earlier.As I also said earlier, can you tell me why the men should earn more?? and if they should how is the difference worked out?
@84Stopped at the pub on the way home from work I see.
@ Powerhitter and JDandFriesThe "Jon" at 65 and 48 are completely different people. Now who's the clown??JDandFries as for a women champion spending longer on the court than the male champion at Wimbers. That has never happened in the tournaments history. Ridiculous suggestion from you.
no woman and men cannot compete on an equal footing. in eventing its the horse that is the athlete. the rider just holds on. if that weren't the case then a 51 year old wouldn't be winning Olympic medals would they#84.. grow up and get real. as for this young lady lets just enjoy her huge talent along with the other new young guns of our golf landscape.. AND STOP WITH THE EXPECTATION PRESSURE
@73 "...as they cannot compete with men..FACT".Not true, particularly in endurance sports. As just one example, Beryl Burton outperformed men to hold the 24 hour cycling record. Examples of non-endurance sports where both genders compete on equal basis, with women often outperforming men, would be eventing or dressage......Comparisons are odious...I just love sport, whoever competes.
@81... is it not past your bedtime Claire
@HughseyLXAmazed you have to even ask why the men and women can't play on the same course at the same time
I see the trolls have finished work and hence have finished badmouthing women's sports. Well done Charley Hull you have done yourself proud at such a tender age. Much more great things to come.
