Women’s Golf League Moves To Ban Biological Men From Competing After Transgender Golfer Wins Tournament

According to recent reports, a women’s professional golf league is moving to modify its rules after an individual born as a man identifying as a woman won a tournament in Florida. The golfer in question, Hailey Davidson, used to compete on a men’s golf team in college before identifying as a woman.

However, under the revised rules, Davidson is no longer permitted to compete in NXXT Golf. “Effective immediately, competitors must be a biological female at birth to participate,” NXXT announced. “This decision underscores the organization’s commitment to maintaining the integrity of women’s professional golf and ensuring fair competition.”

NXXT Golf CEO Stuart McKinnon commented on the decision, maintaining their commitment to protecting the women who compete in the league. He explained that “protected categories” are essential to creating a fair, competitive environment for athletes.

“Our revised policy is a reflection of our unwavering commitment to celebrating and protecting the achievements and opportunities of female athletes,” McKinnon said. “Protected categories are a fundamental aspect of sports at all levels, and it is essential for our Tour to uphold these categories for biological females, ensuring a level playing field.”

Davidson weighed in on the league’s decision, stating in an Instagram post, “Effective immediately, I have been removed (banned) from the next 3 NXXT tournaments that I had already signed up for and been approved to play. They changed their policy mid season, after me signing up already and being 2nd in the Player of the Year race.”

Following the win at the women’s tournament, Davidson stated during an interview with “Good Morning Britain,” that biological men do have physical advantages over women. However, the golfer argued that because of gender surgery, Davidson did not possess any unfair advantages over his female competition.

“My whole philosophy behind all of this is I don’t believe trans people should be banned from sports, but I do believe there needs to be guidelines in effect,” Davidson said. “Going back even four years ago or even before I had surgery, I definitely had an advantage. I would 100% agree with that.”

“But the difference is now that years have gone on, three years after surgery, my physical capabilities now compared to back then are night and day,” Davidson continued. “So again, honestly, I 100% agree that men do have advantages. Say you get a trans person on hormones for a year or no surgery nothing… of course, for the most part, yeah they’re gonna have an advantage.”

The protection of female sports has become a hot-button topic of political discourse in America. The American Tribune reported on a recent incident where a transgender swimmer broke a state championship record in women’s swimming.

New Jersey swimmer Mehan Cortex-Fields, who competes on the Ramapo College Women’s Swim team, recently broke the previous New Jersey Athletic Conference (NJAC) championship record for the 200 IM during the championship swim meet hosted in College Park, MD. Cortez-Fields smashed the previous record, winning with a time of 2:08:20. As this is the second record that Cortex-Fields has broken in months, the event has drawn further attention to the protection of women’s sports.
