I guess Bivens seen the right. It'll be a rong rong time before she try something so stupid without rooking into ramifications again. What a rooser!

I can’t believe that in the 21st century that a major sports organization would institute such a backwards, illegal and downright racist policy. The reasoning given for instituting such a policy was that players need to interact with the sponsors. The last time I checked, the LPGA has sponsors from multiple countries and plays in several countries as well. Does that mean all of the English speaking players need to learn how to speak Spanish to be able to schmooze with the Mexican sponsors at the Corona Championship? Do LPGA players need to speak French when they play in France at the Evian Masters? What contrived logic is this? Carolyn Bivens and the LPGA board are obviously racist. This is reminiscent of our shameful past of discrimination against African American baseball players and when we instituted literacy laws to prevent African Americans from voting. Wake up America!! We’re better than this. Just because our American players are not winning this year and keep losing to foreign players doesn’t mean we have to resort to cheating and discrimination to compete. I applaud State Farm in speaking up against this blatantly racist policy.

Superbigmac,

I wonder how many times you can work the word "racist" into a blog post. And the policy is obviously racist? You're obviously an idiot and a lowlife.

Any publicity is good publicity if you are a movie star. Somehow this policy just plain smells, even with the possible change to just a fine. Give it whatever label your vocabulary can justify but it does not pass the old 'gut check' test. The OUTCOME wanted can certainly be achieved in a more appropriate manner. Isn't there something about the various cultures and languages represented in the LPGA worth while? Why demean it?

I fear you give the commissioner too much credit. As State Farm showed, she clearly overstepped her mandate, and looked very silly amongst golf and general sports fans. Hard to explain this proposed system to my friends outside golf.

The fact that so many of you find this policy unfathomable is a perfect illustration of why our civilization is doomed.

I can't see anyone saying the policy was unfathomable, Judge Smails, just ill-conceived. A big leap to the doom of civilisation either way?
