The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews may be in for a drastic change as the men-only institution votes on the issue of admitting women.
Held as the spiritual home of golf, St Andrews has come under increasing fire for excluding women members but things could finally change in September when the club's 2,500 members will decide whether to open its doors to all after 260 years.
The Royal and Ancient Golf Club has traditionally been the guardian of the rules of the game since 1754, although since 2004 it devolved responsibility for the administration of the game and the Open championship to the newly-formed The R&A.
Last year the R&A was criticised for choosing Muirfield, which has a male-only membership policy, to host the Open championship with Scoland's First Minister Alex Salmond refusing to attend.
Clint Eastwood proved himself to be a real-life hero when he saved the life of a choking man at a party.
Eastwood attended a volunteer party on the eve of the PGA Tour when he noticed tournament director Steve John choking on a piece of cheese. The 83-year-old actor quickly performed the Heimlich manoeuvre.
"I was drinking water and eating these little appetizers, threw down a piece of cheese and it just didn't work," John said. "I was looking at him and couldn't breathe.
He recognised it immediately and saved my life."
Eastwood is a prominent figure at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, formerly as an amateur contestant and now as chairman of the Monterey Peninsula Foundation. It has raised over $100 million for charity as the host of the PGA Tour event.
"I looked in his eyes and saw that look of panic people have when they see their life passing before their eyes," Eastwood told The Carmel Pine Cone. "It looked bad."
He said it was the first time he had used the Heimlich manoeuvre.

British sports fans will also have Chris Froome's impending Tour de France win and England potentially wrapping up victory in the second Ashes Test to cheer today.
Lee Westwood will take a two-shot lead into the final round of the 142nd Open Championship after a rollercoaster third day at Muirfield.
That means Tiger Woods will have to make history to win his 15th major title and deny the Englishman a first at the 62nd attempt after failing to keep pace with his playing partner on a dramatic afternoon.
Westwood carded an eagle and three birdies in a round of 70 that left him atop the leaderboard on three under par, with Woods (72) and fellow American Hunter Mahan (68) the only other players in red figures on one under.
"I know what to expect tomorrow," Westwood said. "I know what to do, I know what it takes.
"It's just a case of believing you are good enough to win. When you analyse it, you don't want to say it, but tomorrow is just another 18 holes. I'm playing well and putting well and there's no reason why I can't carry on.
