The sky has fallen -- R&A to allow women in Open Championship
According to the Scotsman, one of my favourite newspapers for golf, Peter Dawson at the R&A is talking about allowing women in the British Open. It is an amazing thing, coming from an organization that is male-only and that plays its most pretigious championship at men's only venues (Muirfield, Royal Troon, etc.).
That means the U.S. Open, the Masters and the British, could all have women qualify for their championships. I don't expect it to have any time soon, however. Regardless of what some TV pundits say about Michelle Wie, she's never going to play in a major championship. She'd have to win the U.S. Public Links to make it and she's lucky to get through the first round, let alone win it.
