Transgender Female Disc Golfer Removed From Women’s Event

The Disc Golf Pro Tour was pushed into the spotlight over the weekend after Natalie Ryan, a transgender female competitor, saw her chances of possibly winning a California tournament disappear due to an appeal of court ruling.
The Professional Disc Golf Association tightened its rules on transgender participation in December, which would have kept Ryan out of the women’s division. She filed a discrimination lawsuit in February, saying the tour’s decision was based on “prejudice,” according to OutSports.
On Thursday, U.S. District Judge Troy L. Nunley granted Ryan a temporary restraining order to allow her to play.
