OUTRAGE: Trans female golf coach "ABUSED and THREATENED" at The Open

A trans female golf coach who was working at The Open in the 'Swing Zone' at Royal St George's today was reportedly "abused and threatened" before deciding to leave the venue completely as a result. 

The incident was reported on Twitter by TV producer and director Nick German. 

 

 

"Appalled to hear that a transfemale golf coach who was working at The Open in the Swing Zone helping fans with their golf has been abused and threatened whilst out on the course and has sadly but understandably felt it necessary to leave RSG," read German's tweet.

"Golf and its fans must do better."

We completely agree with German's tweet and are disgusted to hear this has happened today.
