LPGA, Michelle Wie, Annika Sorenstam, take a bow -- now sit down
I agree that The Rebel often has his hat on too tight and his cigar too loose, but I agree with him on his LPGA rant. Now, I have nothing against the LPGA. I like watching women’s golf, though I like women’s tennis better because the skirts are shorter and the legs are longer.
BUT – if there are PGA Tour and LPGA events on TV simultaneoulsy – it’s a no-brainer. I’ll go with the men every time, just like probably 90 percent of all American sports fans, I’ll wager.
It isn’t a question of gender – despite what those particular kind of feminists-who-wear-blinders want you to believe – it’s a question of quality.
Example: I’m a huge NBA fan. I’d watch it every day if I could. I can only watch the WNBA for about 30 seconds. Here’s the point: I don’t watch men’s college basketball either, mainly because they’re NOT AS GOOD as the NBA. There are some other minor reasons – all the zone defenses, to name one – but the point is when I watch sports, I want to watch the best.
I would love to see the LPGA get richer than King Solomon, but don’t expect me to fall for any marketing ploys. Women’s sports are niche sports – with the exceptions that come along every so often like Annika Soresntam and Michelle Wie – and that’s probably where they’ll stay. And there’s nothing wrong with that.

I'll keep it short.
You are a punk and a chauvinist pig.
You are the niche, not female athletes.
For golf muscle and my own ego, give me the mens tour. When it comes to watching golf with grace, beauty and style,however, I switch to the LPGA channel every time!
For the funniest message ive seen for a long time just had to say good on you . Ofcourse i agree totally with Tim but you have to laugh .
Each league is what it is. If I were talented enough that the number of viewers determined my paycheck, I wouldn't care if they were watching my skirt or my swing. When I watch the MPGA or any professional men's sport, it's for the sport, and the good looks and tight pants are just a bonus.
Some men actually appreciate the athleticism of women's sports. Then there are closet pigs that can wipe the drool and pretend to. Finally, there is the slobbering set that have given up all hope so they don't mind being disrespectful right out in the open. Like all the pretty girls in their lives, Natalie will ignore them too. All the way to the bank.
A 15 year old girl who is a consistent top 5 on the LPGA and who comes closer to making a PGA cut than the LPGA superwoman Anaka Sorenstam. Add to that the naysayers who see performances most LPGA players would drool over as nothing but losses. I would just love to see Michelle do something to make these people eat their words, although I imagine Michelle could win 17 consecutive men's Majors and people would just belitle her accomplishment and say Jack won 18.I hope this is just hyperbole.
Couldn't agree more
