Should Women play at The Open?

The Royal & Ancient Golf Club in St. Andrews has taken an historic step in allowing women to play at The Open Championship.

This has raised vivid discussions whether or not this is appropriate. In my opinion, anyone who matches the qualifying criterias should be allowed to play, male or female.

In the past, female players like Annika Sorenstam or Michelle Wie have played in the mens events, but by invitation. Michelle Wie surely has the length off the tee to be able to make her mark also in mens golf. I'll surely have an eye on the John Deere Classic in Illinois, where Michelle is trying to qualify for The Open.
