Rory McIlroy lays into Muirfield membership after finally admitting women
Muirfield's decision to admit women members for the first time in its 273-year history appears to have come too late to appease Rory McIlroy, the world No 3, who says he "won't have a great taste in my mouth" when he visits the course.
"The R&A want to host The Open there, obviously, as it's such a great course and it is great for Scotland in general when you have the biggest tournament on the best courses and Muirfield is right up there, if not the best course in Scotland - they need to be hosting the event".
The results of the second vote were announced Tuesday, with 80.2 percent voting to allow women to become members.
"Our special nature - "a gentleman's club where golf is played" - is quite unique with its fraternity built inter alia on foursomes play with a round taking only the same time as lunch and leaving enough time for a further round after lunch (even in mid winter)". Nick Faldo and Vardon contemporary James Braid are the only British Open champions to win twice at Muirfield. The first Open that Muirfield could host is in 2022, and by then, it is hoped, its membership will include a handful of women. "But, if you look at membership here in the United Kingdom for women members, they're about 14 percent of club members. I think it's a great thing that they have done, and meant to go along with that now, from a selfish point of view, it's back in The Open rota, and I'm looking forward to when it eventually get back there". Everybody is equal and for Muirfield to have women members is only going to be positive for the club in my opinion.
"Our members were quite clear that they wanted women to be treated, not in any artificial way, but to go through the same admissions process as men", Fairweather said. Royal St. George's, another British Open site, followed suit a year later.
Britain's sports minister Tracey Crouch said Muirfield's decision had been a long time coming. "Like, it's ridiculous", McIlroy said Wednesday at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.
