About this Episode

On January 16, English golfer Meghan Maclaren sent out a tweet noting the difference in prize funds between a Ladies European Tour event and a men's European Tour event being played in Abu Dhabi a week apart. What followed was a three day uproar over whether the game's top professional women get a raw deal from sponsors, equipment manufacturers and fans alike. Meghan and fellow LET player Felicity Johnson join Rod Morri on Episode 94 of the iSeekGolf podcast to talk about that incident and the broader issue of gender inequity in the game. It's more fun than it sounds and there's some other golf chat along the way as well.
