Do You Always Have To Buy From The Ladies' Golf
When you re growing up as a young female golfer,
it s exciting to go into the sports store or browse on the Internet
and find the products and accessories that are just right for a
girl s game.
But as you grow up and your game gets better, you start to realize
that you might have to start crossing the aisle and sneaking into
the men s section. Fortunately, manufacturers are starting to recognize
that ladies golf is a profitable niche market that they need to
cater to delivering the same high quality products and options that
Customizing Your Golf Clubs
For a long time, women with long arms - or who
were taller than the average female- had to invest in men s golf
clubs, so that when they addressed the ball, they didn t have to
bend their knees a little extra in order to make contact with it.
But now many manufacturers are providing golf items for all women.
Now, instead of a one-size-fits-all approach, they re selling petit,
regular, tall, and left-handed clubs for lad golfers.
Still, there might be a time when you re at the course or the driving
range and you swing a club that someone (male) in your group let
you use for a shot. You loved it but it s a guy s club can you still
Of course you can. Don t feel that your set of clubs have to all
be from one manufacturer. Don t be afraid to break up the set. You
might have a men s driver or men s 5-iron that you want.
There s no set rule that says your set has to stay together. That
s what eBay is for. If you have a club you lo longer use, sell it
or trade it in for something you like better.
You may even want to customize your clubs as your game improves
golf shops can create the perfect shaft, grip and head that best
fits your height, power and preferences.
Accessorizing Your Game Regardless of Gender
When you start knowing what you really want from
your golf game, you ll realize that comfort and performance outweigh
visual appeal. You might go shopping for a good golf shoe and find
that the men s shoes offer more of what you want to walk an 18-hole
course in order to come home without four blisters on your feet.
Really, the only reason to prefer women s golf accessories over
the men s is the fashion superiority and appeal they offer. Like
top designers, golf manufacturers have recognized that some women
want to look stylish on the links whether it s the Italian leather
golf bag in camel or the Malibu Slingback Sandal that can be used
both on and off the course.
Some items, like the slingback sandal, will only be offered in the
women s section. And there are some accessories that will be reserved
for the men, such as a money clip for those who carry their cash
outside of a traditional wallet.
While it s hard to imagine that a man would prefer a slingback sandal,
a woman who walks the course may not want to carry her large, bulky
Louis Vuitton pocketbook in her bag. Admit it some women s purses
weigh a ton and who wants to carry that extra load on the links?
She might want to slip a money clip on the counter for those days
when she doesn t use a cart. That way, she has her cash for clubhouse
refreshments or the round of golf (or a bet or two) but she doesn
t have to lug around anything unnecessary.
Women today are edging their way into men s professional tournaments.
It s safe to say the products that come out on the marketplace will
allow women every advantage that men have on the course whether
it s the power of a new hybrid club or the accessories that make
the game of golf easier or more fun to enjoy.
If you find yourself eyeballing an item that s considered for men
only in the golf world, break the rules and get it anyway. You ll
be alerting the golfing industry that they need to cater to the
needs of ladies who might also want the same item on the women s
side of the aisle.
