R&A set for historic vote on women members

FILE - In this July 17, 2013 file photo, the Royal and Ancient Golf Club's Chief Executive Peter Dawson listens during a press conference ahead of the British Open Golf Championship at Muirfield, Scotland. Dawson announced last month that he will retire in September 2015 as secretary of the Royal & Ancient Golf Club and chief executive of The R&A, a business division he wisely created 10 years ago. He will have served 16 years, the same tenure as the three R&A secretaries before him. What sets him apart is coping with perhaps the most challenging times in the club's 260-year history.

On the same day Scotland votes on whether to become independent, a historic sporting decision will be made inside arguably the most famous building in golf.
