Golf – not just for old men

Golf is still quite male dominated. In fact my first experience with golf etiquette was quite a lesson.

Golf is not just for guys, women can play too

It’s not exactly high fashion friendly. It’s quite the opposite. Similar to tennis; there’s a dress code of ‘no midriff’ or exposed back/navel region, no heels, and minimal accessories (you don’t want anything flying off in a swing). It’s strictly t-shirt and smart pants and suitable shoes, but shorts are permitted in the summer. But it’s a lot more fun learning to play than just watching!

Golf has been played since 1421 when it was first recorded in Scotland, it is now being played by men and women alike. The most popular tournament being the Masters, US and British OpenΒ and PGA Championship, played by Tigerwoods, Phil Mickelson, and Rory McIlroy. But since we’re empowering women in this blog, here’s the top 3 women golfers in the world;Β Annika SΓΆrenstam,Β Lorena Ochoa, andΒ Jiyai Shin. Most of the top 10 being from Korea and Japan, surprising much?

So I’ve probably only been playing for a total of a few 30 hours or so, still practising my driving at the rage so I can actually hit the ball. Still bending the fashion rules. Guys have been playing to network and even progress in their career, so who says women can’t?

Grip is equally important. Glove from here.

Put that in your pipe and smoke it!

You don’t need to have all of the fancy gear to play, just a will to win and patience to play.

This girl can.
