Muirfield vote: R&A acted with impressive speed

May 24th, 2016

Last Friday the press release announcing that the vote to admit women as members of the Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers had narrowly failed to achieve the required majority was issued at 11.45 a.m. It took just ten minutes for The R&A to issue the press release removing Muirfield from the Open Championship roster. Decisive or what?
