Women In Golf: The Time Is Now

For the last few weeks I keep running into the topic of women in golf (well, more than usual). I participated in an interview with other everyday golfers about the topic on Golf Gal's blog over the weekend. Today, she has Sherri McDonald of The Big Break X talking about what she has seen happening to grow the sport for women. In addition, I was at Players Club Golf last night and the latest issue of Southland Golf was on display with the words "Women in the Game" emblazoned on the front. There was even another lady golfer at the club which I didn't used to see when I would frequent the club a few months ago. Need more evidence that women's golf is on the rise and here to stay? Check these out:

Women's golf is gearing up here in Southern California for the Kraft Nabisco Championship in Rancho Mirage March 30-April 5. Lorena Ochoa is the regining champion.

Women need to "step up to the tee" according to the post by Megan at ...Because I Played Sports

Ladies on the Tee talks about why golf is unfair to women.

I've also been following the golf trials and tribulations of a former competitive figure skater turned golfer at Real Women Golf.

Of course, find out everything you want to know about the pros at the LPGA website.

There are many other sources out there, this is not an exhaustive list by any means. I run into quite a few women that are quite passionate about golf. In fact, this happens more every day. This subject will definitely come up again in the very near future so stay tuned.

What have you heard about women's golf lately?

I've never thought about women having a disadvantage in golf. That makes sense though. Oh well, I know plenty of female golfers who can beat all the guys any day (I am not one of these women).

I know a few that can light up a course also. I don't do so bad at times but in no way ready for the Tour.

I'd love to win some crystal this summer. Right now I have to settle for the HUGE bottle of Grey Goose I "won" for my hole in one last year. I'm thinking about having it engraved!

Loved your comments on Golf Gal's shop. Keep up the great blogging.

Hi Heather, a HUGE bottle of Grey Goose isn't so bad! Thanks for stopping by!
