Masters Tournament to Allow Female Competitors Starting 2018

I guess hell just froze over.  Stay tuned for a big announcement today from Augusta, GA.   Augusta National Golf Club, home of The Masters, has been a venue the LPGA Tour has wanted to compete at for decades.  They’ve wanted a “Ladies Masters” tournament of some sort, but those wishes have fallen on deaf ears.  My inside sources have informed me that The Masters Tournament committee has frog-jumped the LPGA Ladies Masters idea and gone right to admitting female competitors in the Masters Tournament starting in 2018.

Don’t expect to see female competitors for half the field in 2018 though. In fact, I’d only expect to see perhaps five or less.  My source has told me qualifying for females or males will be basically the same except for the additions to allow the female USGA Amateur champion in, along with the five (if there are in fact five) LPGA Tour major champions from the previous year.

I can’t wait to hear what Martha Burke has to say.  Twitter and the social sphere will surely be exploding as the news gets out.

What are your thoughts? Is this the right move or not?  And will the ladies be playing the member tees or the Masters tees?  There are only two sets of tees there, and personally I think the Masters tees would destroy any female golfer’s chances because the course is so long now.

Tiger Woods in Ski Marketing

Unless you’ve been on another planet which doesn’t have WiFi, you’ll know I’m on a big skiing binge right now. Hooked on Skiing. I bought some new skis last week and when shopping for them, I did a lot of research. I came across a description for a ski/skier type which had me laughing bad. It would seem that Tiger Woods’s reputation crosses over from golf to skiing.

Ironically I ended up buying skis that were 98mm in the waist. So I guess I “accumulate vertical feet like Tiger accumulates notches in his belt.”


Tiger Woods Switches to Bridgestone Golf Ball

I saw this one coming for a while. I don’t normally write much about the “tour” anymore. There are so many millions of blogs and sites out there doing it. But I feel compelled to post about Tiger Woods switching to Bridgestone Golf balls. Obviously Tiger has read Hooked on Golf Blog and gathered how awesome the ball performs for my granny over the top dual chicken wing golf swing.

All due respect to Nike Golf, can you imagine how many more tournaments Tiger Woods would have won with the B330 or B330-S in the bag instead of the Nike ball? But now I wonder if it is too late. Time will tell.

It will be interesting to see where Rory McIlory and Tony Finau end up ball-wise too. A switch to the B330, or numerous other balls not the Nike ball could really help their consistency and performance.

The full Bridgestone Golf Press Release regarding Tiger Woods switching to their ball is here.
