Women to play golf alongside men

Women may compete alongside men for the first time at a prestigious golf tournament, the Open at St Andrews.

The tournament\x92s organisers have said that American teenager Michelle Wie willbe allowed to play if she qualifies this year.

Maybe this is just the first step towards women competing directly against men in sport, something that might well be what\x92s needed to end the ghettoisation of women\x92s sport.
