    Slow clap, you hit the nail on the head czaban, obviously a network like espn wouldnt think of roasting a sacred cow like article of this nature with the risk of sounding “narrow minded.” This article was a refreshing annihalation of another sjw picking a fight with who exactly I dont know ( society? Men?). Golf is already a niche market in the first place making your last point even more obvious. Nice job.

    “Female athletes are widely perceived to be inferior: less athletic, less skilled, less entertaining. That perception—the very definition of gender discrimination and inequality—is regularly stated as fact, in the media, on social media and beyond: Women’s athletics are simply less “watchable.””

    If that’s the case, that they aren’t less athletic and are at the same level physically as men, then why doesn’t Bukowski push to have them fight men in the boxing or UFC ring? Or, let them line up as running backs in the NFL? Why? Because there is a difference in the genders. This is not a bad thing, nor is it discriminatory. It’s the reality and we should act as such. Calling that the definition of “discrimination” just drives me nuts.

    Simply put, if people wanted to watch the LPGA more, companies would notice and money would pour in. If not enough people want to watch – live or televised – companies will not find it worh their time or money. Economics, like gravity, will always win. Until some bleeding heart makes it mandatory to watch the LPGA.

    Wait? What’s preventing all these hotshot LPGA’ers from qualifying for the PGA tour and competing for the bigger payouts? Oh, right lesser skills.

    You know, low-level minor league baseball is entertaining too.

    Okay, I’ll say it. The only reasons I would watch LPGA golf is 1) if an American is winning a major, then I’d watch the last few holes or 2) to see some of the hot women walk around in shorts or short skirts. Bukowski is trying to use the WNBA argument (better fundamentals – but why aren’t people watching the WNBA?). The reason: it is an inferior product with very little “gender overlap”. Gender overlap (my made up term) is where you take the top females in a sport (e.g. tennis) and they could most likely beat several of the lower ranked men. In basketball, there is no overlap. Take the WNBA champions and put them up against the 76ers or the worst D-League NBA team and it wouldn’t be a contest; the WNBA champs would get blown out. In golf, I think there is some gender overlap, which is why the LPGA probably has lots more viewers (I would imagine) than the WNBA. If you want men to watch LPGA golf, then have a dress code that would “enhance” the product.

    This might be a dumb question, but isn’t the population of the earth 51% women? Yet the shame always falls upon the men for not supporting women’s sports. Stacey Lewis is directing her anger at the wrong target.

    I’ve got a daughter who plays Division 2 golf in college, and I absolutely agree with every word. I thoroughly enjoy watching her compete in college tournaments, BUT IT’S BECAUSE SHE’S MY DAUGHTER!! Talent wise, no comparison between men and women. And I also agree with what Steve said in that…. her and most of her teammates and competitors would smoke me if I played them from the same yardage.
