#ThisGirlGolfs

Despite there being some great female players on the world stage, such as Charley Hull, Laura Davies, Mel Reid and Paula Creamer, golf is often wrongly perceived as a Man’s game. #ThisGirlGolfs is designed to shift this perception and inspire participation by highlighting women that are already playing the game at all levels.

Golf is a game for all. Unlike any other sport, golf’s unique handicap system allows people of different abilities to play and compete together, making it a great game for women and men alike.

The PGA and England Golf are supporting #ThisGirlGolfs as part of their ‘Raising Our Game’ strategy. Committed to increasing the number of people that play golf regularly and reversing the decline of club members, England Golf recognise that Women and Girls are key to this success.

#ThisGirlGolfs features a series of different women and girls of all ages and backgrounds showing how they fit golf into their everyday lives and enjoy the game. Including established pro golfers Charley Hull and Henni Zuël, Ellie Lace, 15 year old amateur golfer and BBC Breakfast presenter Naga Munchetty, We see tour pro’s traveling to practice sessions on the tube, girls honing their skills at urban driving ranges, a young girl sneaking into her brother’s bedroom to borrow his clubs and a father taking the time to teach his daughter how to play.

Charley Hull, professional golfer, commented: “I have always had a love of golf, picking up my first club aged two. It’s a fantastic game to play with friends, a great way to relax and get outdoors. It’s been great to be part of #ThisGirlGolfs I hope it will encourage girls to head down to their local driving range or golf club and give it a go.”

Eve Burton, Sports Publications LTD said “Golf is an amazing game, it is a modern and vibrant sport played by women and men and consumed in a variety of different ways. #ThisGirlGolfs is not reinventing the sport it is merely presenting in the way it deserves to be”
