Are you kidding? There are separate tours for good reasons, though the disparity in purses has no good reason. Yani is competing with her peers and has nothing to prove to any male any where, 99% of whom, apart from male professionals, she could teach a few things about the game to. She's at the pinnacle of her tour now as a youngster, she has nothing to prove to anyone but herself and that is only a matter of just how good she can become. If she played a tournament with the men, for laughs, fine, or in the silly season events, fine. But she has nothing to prove to anyone. She's already done that.

I believe tseng should be playing on the Mans tour full time. The LPGA should require a Hormone test on tseng.

Tseng didn't say she would like to play against the men to prove herself. That is just 'Bleacher Report' making things more than they are. Below is the comment that Tseng made. Nothing in her comments say she wants to prove herself. Heaven help thew LPGA if she does play and learns more about playing golf than she does now.

Tseng could take the opportunity if it presents. "I would like to play in a PGA tournament to learn more from male golfers," she said during a press conference following the third round of the Suzhou Taihu Ladies Open.

The world should require a DNA test on "Truth Serum" just to see if it's human.
