Women's British Open!
Let me explain. I picked this concept up while reading "Who's Your Caddy", a book by Rick Reilly (the guy from the beer belly post). While caddying at an LPGA Tour event, Reilly was informed by the other caddys that women can't take their normal swing while having their period because of chemical imbalances and such. They physically cannot perform the same way that they do when this stuff is not going on.
These caddys should get paid more, not only do they have to deal with the PMS-ing, but if there is an event scheduled near "that time", they can expect to finish like 48th and not get paid very much (because their pay is a cut of the player's earnings). The point of all this is, if you want to play golf against a woman for money, play her while she's on her period.
