WHY WOMEN GOLFERS TEND TO BE MORE INTERESTING THAN MEN GOLFERS TO PLAY WITH.

Playing golf with women is generally very different from playing golf with men.

Most of the guys talk “My grip … my balance … my backswing … blah blah blah” ad nauseum. This is OK for an hour or so, but I have not managed to get around 18 holes that quickly with either gender. On the contrary women talk about their lives, their friends, their jobs, their clothes. Women try to connect. It’s a better social experience for men.

THE GAME SEEMS TO GO FASTER WHEN PLAYING GOLF WITH WOMEN.

Women average a few more shots per round than men do, yet, they seem to move faster on the golf course. This may be partly self-consciousness about being labeled slow players. Women worry about the perception of the men behind them, and the man in the marshal cart, and so they tend to be very aware of their position on the course. Either that or they’re very busy and want to make sure they have time for the 19th hole.

WOMEN GENERALLY PLAY BY THE RULES OF GOLF.

The Rules of Golf, not some insider accordance that allows for dropping your ball where it went out of bounds, or picking up a putt you have just rolled farther past the hole than the original. They play by the rules we all know, which makes it easier for the other players to know when to keep silent, where to stand and when to move on.It is more comforting.

WOMEN BEHAVE WITHOUT MACHISMO.

They are less crude in languages, less likely to throw a club in anger, and less likely to urinate on a tree. They also are less likely to play from trees that make the course too long for them, and they are less prone to disillusion of “grandeur”.

When a woman who can hit her 3 wood no farther than 150 yards is 165 yards from the green, she does not stand in the fairway waiting for the green to clear.
