Annika Sorenstam and Michelle Wie will have a chance to qualify for the (British) Open Championship, now that tournament organizers have opened things up to women.
I think its about time. While I don’t believe that any current woman player has a chance at winning the Open Championship, they should be allowed to try. The Open seeks to identify the champion golfer for that year, and if at some point that happens to be a women, so be it.
Realistically, of the curent crop of women golfers, I think that a couple could possibly get through qualifying. But only Michelle Wie, with her length, has any chance of being competitive.
Competitive doesn’t mean she has a chance of winning, though.
Still, I’d like to see it.
