When we're talking about rankings, then men and women have their separate but equal sequences. But rankings are only used for the top players and doesn't impact the tens of thousands of weekend players.
1. I might not be a "top player", but I am still a member and have as much voice and rights as the "top players"!!!
2. Most "weekend players" aren't pdga members.
3. Since when did the rankings become just for the top ranked and not all members?!
