Not female at birth

Transgender golfer Lana Lawless used to be able to compete in the LPGA, but then they changed the rules so that a golfer had to be “female at birth.”

“Mike Scanlan, LGPA’s public relations manager, confirmed the tour’s “female at birth” policy but declined to comment on why it was in place when other sports associations, including the International Olympic Committee, allow transgendered athletes to compete with stipulations.”

Lawless says, “I’m the only professional women’s golfer in the United States. I’m the champion. They changed the rule…How can you say it’s not directed at me?”
