Historic turning point at Dublin’s Portmarnock Golf Club where, after 127 years, women will be admitted as full members.

With a large majority of 83.4% most of the members of the circle voted in favor of the proposal to change a regulation in force since 1894, the year of its foundation, considered as “sexist and discriminatory”. All this despite 16.6% of the members preferred that the club, even for the future, was composed only of “gentlemen”.

“The Match” does not quit and actually raises. The fourth edition of the “green” show will be played on July 6 in the United States on the course of The Reserve at Moonlight Basin in Big Sky, in the state of Montana. Phil Mickelson, fresh from historic success at the PGA Championship and two-time winner of The Match, will play alongside Tom Brady, American football legend and great golf fan. Their challengers will be Bryson DeChambeau and Aaron Rodgers (quarterback for the Green Bay Packers of the National Football League and three-time MVP of the NFL). The show, “Capital One’s The Match”, will be charitable and will see the players on the pitch microphones.
