August 18, 1957 Betty Dodd won the LPGA Colonia Golf Open.
Golf is also a woman’s game.
As Bridget Brennan stated in her article to Forbes: “The sport requires finesse instead of brute strength; it’s social; it’s played in some of the most beautiful settings on earth; its coed; the fashion is great; and cocktails and conversation await the end of every game. So why aren’t more women playing?”
Part of getting into the game, is getting fit for the course.
