Exposure - that is what female golf needs. When my husband, Justin, and I set up the Rose Ladies Series last year , his goal was short-term and predominantly performance based, giving the women pros environs in which to compete in the blank coronavirus summer. But there was and remains a bigger picture and my ambition was to showcase their quality by giving them the coverage they warrant.

That is a tremendous thrill for we are unashamedly backing Gemma Dryburgh, the three-time winner on our series who is the field thanks to coming through our qualifier. We wanted the RLS to help players like Gemma and providing a springboard for her career is what this is essentially all about for Justin.

The RLS was intended as a one off, a stop-gap. Last year, after the initial lockdown, we read an article in the Telegraph and realised women pros had nowhere to play. The expansion has been wonderful but, ideally, we would prefer for the RLS to be redundant.

If more tournaments could emerge and more sponsors could come out of the woodwork, we would be delighted for the RLS not to be needed at all. There is such a long way to go - we've hardly scratched the surface of what we would like to achieve. The RLS has found exposure far harder to achieve than we thought. We wanted the series to be seen, but we have had to pay for the TV coverage and because we own it we have put it out on YouTube so that it's free. Fine, they are on the red button and IPlayer earlier, but the fact the coverage is being tucked away on free-to-air is a statement of indifference in itself.

And, quite frankly, in this day and age, that astounds me. I have written to everyone I can think of at the BBC. I want to meet them, talk to them and understand why they seemingly have something against golf. Show me another sport where a young child can play with a grandparent, where the girls and the boys can compete together so easily, because of the handicap system. It's completely inclusive. When I wrote to the BBC, I pointed out that at that time the average age of the top 10 female golfers was younger than the top 10 female tennis players.

No longer is this an old man's sport. These young female stars are athletic, inspirational, and they come from so many different backgrounds and cultures. We will continue to seek an answer.
