Truth & Rumors: UK sports minister joins call for R&A to admit women

Just days after the outgoing chairman of the British Olympic Association speaks out, UK Sports minister Hugh Robertson agrees that the time has come for R&A to admit women members, according to a Golf 365 report.

"The defence of the Royal and Ancient is that it is a private club and so has the right to do what it wants.
"That is legally correct and I have no quarrel when it is acting as a private club. However, I believe that when a private club fulfils a public function, such as staging a major event, then there is a different slant."
