Cycling and Golf Don't Mix

Fore?
The Tour de France has forced the Ladies English Open to change its dates this summer because of what it fears would be an "organizational nightmare."
The Tour begins in London this year with the prologue, then takes Stage 1 out to the Kent countryside.
The golf tournament at Biddenden's Chart Hills Golf Club is scheduled for July 5-8, meaning the final day would have conflicted with the cyclists' ride in the country.
The British are expecting an estimated 1.5 million cycling fans -- me included -- to turn out for the stage, and roads in Kent will be closed as a result.
So the ladies have deferred. The will begin their event on Wednesday and finish up on Saturday. That will limit their battle to newshole in the sporting pages.
