Mel Reid GolfSixes

Mel Reid, 6-time Ladies European Tour winner, has always been outspoken about growing the women's game. Last weekend at GolfSixes, she used her platform once again to advocate for more exposure for the women's game, and it might have been her most powerful message to date.

“I've always been outspoken about equality."

Reid and Ciganda well and truly wowed the crowds at last weekend’s GolfSixes, sticking it to the men and advancing to the Knockout Stage of the event. Georgia Hall and Charley Hull also advanced to the quarter finals, proving that both sets of women's teams could more than hold their own against the men.

"Hopefully we shocked the men a little bit by beating them in a few matches”.

"Listen, we are good, we're really good," said Reid. "This is my opinion and the opinion of many others that Inbee Park is the best putter in the world. If there was more exposure of how she played and putted, people would be talking about her rather than Jordan Spieth (as the best in the world)."
