LPGA has a dumb-ass idea

The Ladies Professiional Golf Association wants to suspend any golfer who doesn't demonstrate English-speaking ability.

Language ability is totally unrelated to golfing ability. Heck, you can be mute and play golf.

The LPGA says it wants the golfers to be able to interact with sponsors and others who pay to play with the golfers in pro-am tournaments.

Bah! You're there to play golf! And there are such people as interpreters.

If American athletes playing on teams in other countries (Japanese baseball, European basketball) and had to speak those other languages, there would be very few who would pass that test.

What a stupid idea.
