In the wake of a discrimination lawsuit filed by transwoman Lana Lawless, the LPGA players voted yesterday to allow trans women golfers a chance to play on the tour. The vote was conducted at a meeting in advance of the LPGA Tour Championship, which starts Thursday at the Grand Cypress Golf Club in Orlando.
LPGA players voted to amend the constitution by removing the
"female at birth" requirement and puts the LPGA in line with other international sporting associations like the International Olympic Committee and the Ladies European Tour.
Will we see Mianne Bagger at an LPGA event near us in the near future? Only time will tell.
The bottom line is that if a young transwoman has the talent and desire to play in the LPGA, if she qualifies, she now has the opportunity to do so.
