Have been watching the U.S open golf tournament and they have made references to the L.P.G.A's (women's professional tour for those not into the sport) equivalent coming up later this summer.
I just found it very ironic how things change. A womans league in a sport that originally stood for

Gentleman Only Ladies Forbidden.

just some trivia..lol

Thanks for the trivia Dragon! I didn't know that etymological interpretation Very Happy

Couldn't it also have been: Girls Only Lads Forbidden?

Those must have been some naughty old gentlemen lol!

EDIT: Just checked google, and there you can read that "gofl" is actually not an acronym, but a "real" word which has an etymological history. Still, would have been a funny name Wink

The Augusta Tourney is still G.O.L.F.. I sometimes wonder how the minority players can, in good conscience, participate in an event that is so blatantly discriminatory. Suspect
