Women's Golf

Women's golf and men's golf are basically the same, though there are some differences in the way the game is played and organized.

Due to the physiological differences between men and women, including differences in strength, size, and muscle mass, the courses for women may be set up differently than those for men, with shorter holes and different tee box placements. Also, women's golf clubs are typically lighter and have more flexible shafts than men's clubs. This is because women generally have slower swing speeds than men and need more help getting the ball in the air.

The scoring system is the same for both men and women, but women's scores tend to be higher than men's. This is partly because women hit the ball shorter distances, which means they have to take more shots to get to the green.

Another major different between men and women's golf is that historically women have received less prize money than the men, although this gap is slowly closing.
