MORE MIXED EVENTS, PLEASE

Today's Golfer (UK) - - FIRST TEE - CHARLES MORDAUNT

With golf need­ing to ad­dress in­clu­sive­ness and dwin­dling play­ing num­bers, it seems a shame that the op­por­tu­nity to sup­port the strug­gling LET by jointly run­ning a ladies’ tour event at the same time and at the same venue was not taken. Take the event held at Woburn for ex­am­ple; a per­fect venue with three top-class cour­ses that could have com­fort­ably run two events to­gether and mixed the men and ladies in the Wed­nes­day pro-am to cre­ate a unique and spon­sor-friendly event. Given the low num­bers who gen­er­ally spec­tate at ladies’ events, it would be good for golf’s rep­u­ta­tion while si­mul­ta­ne­ously giv­ing the ladies’ tour a much-needed boost.
