Get em Jean. I like this. All those women who bitched that they weren't allowed to play in the men's tournaments may not have any tournaments to play in period if the men take over.

Just a way for a scrub who can't beat men to win a little money.

What the surrendering Frenchman fails to see is, in the LPGA charter it says only woman can play in LPGA events...the PGA charter says NOTHING about only men being allowed to play.

Jean is pissed about the fact that more people would rather see Michelle Wie then his sorry ***.

the PGA charter says NOTHING about only men being allowed to play.

But there was one event that was an all male event & was stated so that the women bitched about & finally got in. It has to work both ways or not at all. I don't care that he sucks, but he's probably better than 95% of the women.

I'd be willing to bet, off womans tees, he would never lose a tournamant.

I do think they should seperate the men and the women on the PGA tournaments. Its a nice gimmick to sell some tickets and get a little more people to watch the televised tournaments but it is somewhat of a joke. Someone like Annika who dominates the womens tour doesnt even make the cuts at mens tournaments. Someone who wants to play on a major mens tournament should have to qualify for it, not get a sponsor excemption so that they can show their new nike gear on tv when everyone watches the woman go up against the men.
