Game 5 of the WNBA finals was on. Didn’t even know it was happening. Every single one of those players would demolish me on a one on one game. WNBA viewership is dismal at best. They’re awesome basketball players. Again, and this point just seems to be repeatedly missed, the LPGA has the best women golfers on the planet. It simply doesn’t have the excitement/entertainment value as the PGA. Not because the women are oppressed, not because they aren’t treated fairly, not because they aren’t given a fair opportunity. As @johnclayton1982 clearly doesn’t get, the women are more than welcome to compete with the men and win big money. They choose not to. The answer as to why they choose not to is why they receive smaller purses. And not being ‘due credit’ is exactly what Julie complained of. I’m simply saying based on the free market system she’s got nothing to really complain about. Unlike @johnclayton1982 believes, the woman are not being told ‘you can’t play golf and make money because you’re female.’ They are playing and being paid accordingly. 

 

Women play basketball?

Who knew?!

Comparing the oppression of the blacks in the 60's to the pay being less for LPGA golfers is asinine at best.

Seriously, @johnclayton1982. No idea what you’re talking about.

In some states with a skewed ratio of male deer to female, the dnr has implemented an "earn a buck" rule.  If you want to hunt a buck, you must first kill a doe.

Maybe we should do the same for PGA and LPGA tournaments. If you want to watch the guys, you must first purchase a ticket to a LPGA tournament......

@johnclayton1982

finish your line of thinking!

Mens and women's sports shouldn't be separated.  It should simply be pro sports.

A human is either able to make it to the pros or not!  Fair and equal!

Ouch, I don’t think you’d want this for a variety of reasons including marketability. :-P

There are women out there who can hit as far as men. . .but they don’t play golf.

Sometimes "the market" is racist, sexist, and wrong.  And it probably is in this case. 

You're out of your mind.

Here is a hypothetical - I am part of the market. I choose to watch men's golf. So now I am Sexist? That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard.

I couldn't even read the rest of your post. 

For the record I actually don't watch any golf. 

 

p.s. please don't quote me, I don't want to argue with you.
