Womenís Golf Advantage


It is a fact that most men are physically bigger and thus substantially stronger than women. Thatís not to say there are no exceptions, because definitely there are, but in general it is the case. In the game of golf, as with most sports which are physical in nature, men and women naturally compete in a different way. Where men are able to generate power to hit the ball farther, women tend to use finesse and precision in placement.

For men and women to compete on the same golf course, sometimes against each other. There are considerations and adjustment that are made. Here are some of the differences between men and women in golf.

Forward Tees
Women donít typically hit as far as men, so the course length is adjusted with womenís tees, or forward tees. Yardage is reduced by placing the womenís tees closer to the hole so that, based on averages, a shorter women's drive will land in the general vicinity as a longer men's drive, allowing the subsequent approach shots to be hit from the same place.

Golf Clubs
Those golfers with a fast swing speed generally hit the ball harder and longer. Women typically have a slower swing speed than a bigger and stronger man, so womenís clubs may have more flex. As many women are shorter than men, the shaft on each club as designed for women is about an inch shorter. Because women are thought to be not as athletically inclined as men, their clubs may also have slightly more loft.

Women Only
Itís great to be a woman in a predominately male sport. Women are still often faced with prejudice because they are perceived to be not as good as the men, but many women are sure to prove them wrong. Women do also tend to be a bit less competitive than men and often have social women-only golf groups focused on having fun on the golf course.

Golf is a great game with a history of tradition and is appropriate for the entire family. In addition to womenís tees, most courses also have lower yardages for juniors and senior players. Adjusting the yardage allows everyone to have a different experience on the course and play together no matter their strength and power.
