  1. Golf is Changing for Better and For Women
    The exclusively-for-Men sport of Golf is finally ready to welcome the other half to the game. Golf is not the only game that has been male-dominated for ages but there is no reason for which it has to stay like that forever.
    The surge in the number of women coming forward to participate in the sport is encouraging for women as well as for the sport itself. The following statistics report the exact situation.
    Golf and Women in Stats
    Women make 19% of all the golfers in the world told by National Golf Foundation.
    Out of 80 million players worldwide, a participation of 30 million women in golf has been charged by World Golf Foundation as of 2017.
    48% women are interested in learning golf from beginning stated National Golf Foundation.
    Of all new players taking up golf as a sport, 67% are women.
    A women’s PGA Championship consisting 156 women players is going to take place in June this year.
    The decline in Golfers and Women to the Rescue
    Golf has experienced a major decline in the number of golfers and general interest in the past decade. In 2014, as many as 200,000 players gave up golf.
    The training, expenditure and time spent on golf are just too much for some. With more women players joining the golf world, the situation is improving rapidly.
    Even the tightly masculinist Royal St. George, which is a British golf club has unanimously voted to allow women to play in the club, breaking a 128-year-old legacy.
    This is accompanied by worldwide efforts to promote shorter tournaments and clubhouses for the women players in order to even the deteriorating landscape of the sport. Barring women from playing golf didn’t help, so what other option do they have now when the sport is in existential danger?
