They would represent our great state of Oregon with the utmost integrity on and OFF the course.
But if you guys don't want a woman to go----Dion is an excellent choice.
Think about it----how many states pick a woman to represent them? We need more women players and this would be a great opportunity for people to know that Oregon stands behind our women players.
Teresa has been the Past few years because she got the TD spot for BSF being a USDGC Qualifier. Just as Jeff Mittl OR Flash will be entitled to this year, BUT that is a "Death Match" we will get to see later..
VERY few Women have EVER played in this event...Julianna, Dez
I have NO Issues with a Woman attempting to Qualify for the Spot.
The Comp WILL be structured so that ALL PRO Divisions have an equal shot.
There IS a Womens USDGC....
I am NOT allowed to play in that....seems fair to me.
