Golf may be the great equalizer. When it comes to providing golf instruction, lessons, guidelines, or tips, the game is pretty much the same for men and women. There may be some subtle differences — just like there are subtle differences between different men — but in general, golf tips for women are tips for playing golf.
“Golfers are golfers, whether they are men, women, or juniors,” says Chris Foley of Cragun’s Legacy Courses in Brainerd, who owns and operates Chris Foley Golf Schools.
Go surfing around the internet, and you can find some sites where there are some golf tips designed specifically for women. But we asked Foley his thoughts on the subject.
“The one thing that I do tell ladies a lot, especially if they are new players, is that if they can become reasonably proficient with four golf clubs, they are going to play very good golf,” he says. “Those four clubs would be a club off the tee — a driving club — whether that’s a driver or a three wood. And then a fairway wood or hybrid, a wedge, and a putter.”
