Golf words leave women tee'd off

I've always loved Peter Alliss (inset). The golf commentator speaks about golf like it's his home. So I was really disappointed to hear this week that he said that the fight for women's rights in golf has "caused mayhem" and "buggered up the game for a lot of people". It seems to me that the biggest problem that golf has is that less people are playing it and most of those that do seem to be older. Golf clubs need to wake up to the way we live now and offer more flexible and cheaper packages to encourage younger players and families to play the game. Surely the only way for clubs to survive is through equality and not by listening to the Jeremy Clarksons of the back nine?
