The Open Championship could change from being a men-only event next year. In a sign of changing times Peter Dawson, chief executive of the Royal and Ancient Club which organises the 145-year-old championship, has said he favours the removal of the ban on women players.
This year's entry form stipulates that entries are only allowed from "any male professional or from a male amateur golfer whose playing handicap does not exceed scratch".
But from 2006 it may be the likes of women's world number one Annika Sorenstam, teenage sensation Michelle Wie and Britain's Laura Davies are able to file entries.
