"More than two million women are involved in the active golf scene," said Don A. Rossi, executive director of the National Golf Foundation. But men and women play the game somewhat differently. A man hits a golf ball about 225 yards on his drive and then has about 150 yards to get to the green on a par-4 hole. The average woman golfer has to play golf by wit rather than strength. She hits her drive 150 yards, the second about 130 yards. Still 75 yards short of the green, she's got to swing a lot of short, tricky finesse shots to reach the green. With more in- between shots, a woman plays a shorter game of golf. "It's a game of feel rather than of actual power," said LUGA pro, Louise Suggs. And here are some fine points she feels a woman can use to improve her golf game." To master the short game, try not to be overanxious and think you can hit the ball completely to the hole. Instead, consider the possibilities of rolling. If you are hitting uphill, hit a little further. Downhill, don't hit quite so hard. Never try to put backspin on the ball. Let the grooves on the clubhead do that for you. Striking the ball properly will automatically put a backspin on the ball. Select Club The most important single factor in the short game is selecting the right club. And, if a woman's going out to buy golf clubs, this year more than ever before, she's got a lot to consider. Overwhelmed by the phenomenal growth and demands of women golfers, golf companies have been busy consulting I LPGA pros and suddenly there's! a whole new spectrum of feminine, colorful ladies golf equipment in the pro shops and sports catalogues. The days of "token" women's golf clubs are over. The National Golf Founda- t'or. reports that last year 423,000 women played at private clubs, 877,000 at daily fee courses and 928,000 at municipal courses. The Ladies Pro Golf Association tour soared from five in the '30s to 60 members in the '70s. ' "While our statistics show that women outnumber men in joining the ranks of the nation's golfers over the past decade," said Rossi, "their impact goes beyond mere members. Women now in their second and third slages of golf have drastically changed their recreational philosophy as well as how they play the game." In the past women felt that extra money in the budget should be to getting their husbands the best golf clubs. But mobility, changes in family orientation and increased leisure time have freed women from feeling guilty about spending money on her own recreation equipment. N Beginner or pro, a woman today has to be aware and informed to select the clubs that best suit her. To make a valuable purchase she should take into consideration her own strength, size, weight, length of arms and hand size as they relate to her ability to swing a golf club. According to Toney Penna, long-time golf professional and designer of his own line of clubs, "A woman Golesburg Rggister-Mail, Golesbura, In m Monday, J ulyj£3, Jj73_? lib J omen 6 golf club could be useless," Tony Penna said. He's a firm believer that no woman golfer can play to full potential unless her clubs are made to personal specifications. Cognizance of Jhe ladies' market came to most golf manufacturers about nine years ago when Betty Jameson and Cybil Griffen were great names in golf. Pampering led to design modification. Here's what women's force in the marketplace generated. MacGregor consults Judy Rankin, Marlene Hagge, Sharon Miller and other women ranking in the top 15 pro money winners. Dunlop named their top- quality clubs after Suzie Maxwell, 1972 U.S. Open Champion who assisted with the design. Northwestern has hired two LPGA golfers, Debbie Austin and Margie Masters, to field test new equipment. Ben H o g a n's company's ' plunge into ladies equipment led them to design a specific shaft for women. It's not a cut- down men's shaft, and women's grips are one-thirty second smaller than the men's. And other manufacturers have made other changes to benefit women. Aesthetically, women seem pleased that manufacturers show color-coordinated woods in mahogany mist, high luster blues or exotic greens. But flashy color shouldn't prevent them from looking intently for the same quality features found in men's clubs, differing only s'ightly in lighter weights, slightly shorter shafts and grip si2e.

Toney Penna shows young woman golfer how the new Super Blade iron provides a larger hitting area to help her get the power she needs in the "short game." changes with age and so should her clubs.". Jn other words, the club you played with at 25 may not fit your individual strength and style at 40. A complete line of woods and irons are now available for women. The Super Blade, designed to help the ladies, provides the largest power area of any iron made. It is ideally suited to women because by shortening the hosel this weight is now distributing through the cubhead's hitting area>giving greater payability, power and clubhead thrust.
