- Rory McIlroy ripped Muirfield for needing two votes and more than two centuries to admit women members, saying Wednesday that it was "obscene" that the Scottish club waited so long. Muirfield voted Tuesday to allow women members for the first time in its storied history, and while it was enough to have the club returned to the rotation of potential British Open venues, it came too late to avoid McIlroy's ire. "In this day and age, where you've got women that are the leaders of certain industries and women that are heads of state, and not to be able to join a golf course? It's obscene. Like, it's ridiculous."
