Tom English and Marc Horne interview Gary Player, who drops this little jab at Muirfield, which does not have any female members.
"Golf would not be the game it is without women. Winston Churchill said that change is the price of survival. I agree with that. I just don't see the point of excluding any member of society."
The veteran added: "That policy is their business. It's a decision they've made and they've got to live with it.
"I have designed many golf courses all over the world and I wouldn't like to think any of them would exclude women."
And who says they don't fight back at these old stodgy places?
Club secretary Alastair Brown was taken aback by Player's comments. He said: "We are a private members' club and we conduct our own affairs. We don't have lady members, but ladies play here every day as guests.
"I'm interested in Gary's comments. His views haven't stopped him from returning to the club with a group of people in a week's time."
