California Doesn't Need LPGA
By Kickntrue on 4/17/09
Remember that "English Only" policy the LPGA tried to implement in the offseason? Califonia is still talking about it.
SACRAMENTO (AP) -- The California Senate has voted to make it illegal to hold events that require participants to speak English in a move prompted by the LPGA Tour's English-only proposal.I love California for this reason, but I'm glad I don't pay my taxes to the state. I think I'd be bothered by the amount of useless legislation they spend their time with.

The state is in debt to its eyeballs and this is their senate's priority. Nice. I also assume they pass legislation prohibiting events solely in other languages as well? They will...right? No?? What a surprise.
Ah So! Reminds me of what went down relative to Charlie Sifford in this state about 50 years ago. Golf must maintain a broad overview in order to grow the sport! This has been the case in SoCal golf, in which I became engaged in over 50 years ago, and has created positive results in this game and made it a greater pleasure! JWHpurist
