In one of those stories you couldn't make up even if you were trying really, really hard, famed British Open choker Jean Van De Velde has announced he intends to try to qualify for the Women's British Open next year to protest the decision to allow women to qualify for the men's event.

"I know we have an unfair advantage, so if we have an unfair advantage, let them play with themselves and let us play with ourselves. ... If they do allow me to, I'd definitely go and play, just to make a point. I would be very happy to use the ladies' locker-room.

We have so many jokes to make here, we don't know where to start. So we're gonna go ahead and let blogger The Brothers Judd handle this one: "Don't Frenchmen Qualify Anyway?" Heh.
