Please keep the womens ratings on the same scale as the men. This way women can know whether they can compete in Rec, Intermediate or Advanced.
I really hope this isn't under consideration by the PDGA or the Women's Committee.
another consideration imo should be that some day a Pro Woman PDGA member woman may be in the top ten of Open rankings. think of a future, even more talented disc golf version of Michelle Wie or Annika (sp?) Sorenstam. anyone want to play Bobby Riggs by suggesting that it will never happen? [img]/msgboard/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]
afterall, Juliana has already once cashed at the USDGC
if women were given their own rankings -- they should get two numbers -- one for their protected division and one for overall (Open). that might be a good thing to do with age-protected divisions too. not sure what the case is for having a separate ratings for protected divisions... isn't our universal approach more useful?
