    Its not doing so well - don’t believe there is a seniors ladies tour and the LET is struggling for events and sponsership

    They have one event from now until the end of July and only a further 5 left to play

    Maybe this a step forward to getting Ladies and Men pros playing together which is a good step

    Do they have a senior European Ladies tour? If so I guess the prize money isn't too great seeing as players on the main ladies tour were complaining that they need to take additional jobs recently.

    In your opinion, not mine. One assumes that there is a reason the ladies tour is not doing as well as the mens, why should the lower ranked men suffer to benefit a failing ladies tour ?

    She is playing on the Seniors Tour in one event on a sponser invite - no lower ranked Man is suffering - the European Seniors Tour is also struggling to attract sponsors especially with most of the high profile players choosing to play on the Seniors Tour in the US.

    Golf is a sport in a great position where it has the potential to be gender free - clubs are going gender free tees and I hope most clubs are moving towards gender free comps. When you have two tours struggling then it could be a great idea to try and joint event

    And the reason why all the European tours are struggling are the same - lack of money

    Well said, market forces dictate everything.
