LPGA allows transgender athletes to compete
The transgender community gained a victory as LPGA players voted to allow transgender athletes to compete on tour and eliminate the requirement players be "female at birth". The LPGA is following in the footsteps of other organizations like the International Olympic Committee that have made similar rulings to allow transgender athletes to compete. The IOC covered its bases to make sure no one tries to sneak into a sport by pretending to be another sex. The LPGA needs to follow the same rules to a tee (bad pun intended) in order to not become a circus.
