Here's a very special Christmas gift for the lesbian golfers in the Deadspin audience, as well as the people in charge of programming at ESPN. From Outsports.com comes the news that a new lesbian golf tour is being launched in 2007. This will be perfect when the Worldwide Leader finally launches ESPN Gay.
The new tour is called foreUS, and it will have nothing to do with foreskin. I'm sure that former CBS golf analyst Ben Wright would tell you that such a tour already exists and that it's called the "LPGA." But he would be wrong about that, and then he would be fired all over again.
The foreUS Women's Golf Tour has been established as THE Women's Golf Tour for Lesbians. We are a national organization established to promote the acceptance and increase the influence of the lesbian golfer through dignity and respect while providing a national golf tour opportunity for our members. Our primary outreach is to the lesbian golfer, but with no qualifying limitations on our membership - we do not discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation.
Michelle Wie has already applied for an exemption.
