An Open wound

June 30, 2007

I was blown away to open my L.A. Times sports section this morning [Wednesday] knowing that the most prestigious women's golf event in the world -- the U.S. Women's Open -- is getting ready to tee off in North Carolina and there was no mention or article about the championship even being played or any of its contestants.

As a longtime SoCal resident, subscriber, and former winner of the U.S. Open, I was shocked. For the men's Open at Oakmont, there were features galore and four or five special articles. It's time The Times and media recognize, pay respect to, and showcase the greatest women golfers in the world so that their fans can follow them, and a new generation of young women playing sports today will have top-notch role models.
