MORE MIXED-GEN­DER EVENTS

Today's Golfer (UK) - - FIRST TEE - BRADLEY FLORY

As I sit here watch­ing the fi­nal round of the Women’s Bri­tish Open in awe at the

ex­hi­bi­tion of golf be­ing dis­played by Ge­or­gia Hall and Por­nanong Phatlum, I am amazed that the women’s game is not lauded for be­ing equally as strong and good as the men’s game. I can­not help think­ing that there needs to a WGC style-event and/or a multi-gen­der Ry­der Cup added to the cal­en­dar that brings to­gether the top play­ers from the men’s and the ladies’ game. Golf is a unique sport in the sense that men and women can go head to head on a fairly level play­ing field. Ten­nis is the only sport that has a big fol­low­ing for mixed events, so maybe it’s time golf fol­lowed suit.
