Golf in Latin America February 13, 2008, 6:48 am

You are so right, golf in Latin America has exploded and it is all because of Lorena Ochoa. I grew up playing golf in Mexico in the 80's and back then I was the exception,hardly any women played. I was just in Mexico last month to play golf with my parents and I was amazed at the amount of little girls and women out on the golf course. Right now Lorena is the only Mexican on the LPGA, but that will change in the future. I guarantee that we will see a lot more Latin American women out on the tour and winning more in the near future.

I agree 100% that the ladies need to get out there and give us at lease a choice of whether we watch the men or them....I for one would, some of the PGA tournaments are a bit boring!

Ladies and golf February 13, 2008, 5:59 am

LPGA has a certain cache to it. But when you say the words out loud: Ladies Professional Golf Association, I wonder if we will come to the day when they switch to WGPA: Women's Professional Golf Association?
I'm a Baby Boomer man and I don't know any woman who is my contemporary, or younger, who doesn't roll her eyes on hearing the word "Ladies". You can get away with Ladies and Gentlemen, but as was explained to me - at great length - females over 18 are women.
Several of my professional associations have changed their name to better reflect what members do or how we identify our work. I wonder if, as a way to reflect how potential members self-identify, a name-change isn't in the cards for the LPGA?
