Golf is terrible.
Went to the golf course last night to putt for a while. There was an attractive woman (35-38 years old) at the driving range. She was a total beginner. Here’s what this woman endured in the large bucket I saw her hit.
Cat calling. Among the calls:
“Daaaayum girl” (twice. Same guy.)
“If you were my wife we’d play every night” - 70 year old guy
“Hey, hey, put your backside into it” -Random dude whose friends laughed along with him
Unwanted tips (3 times) from guys walking by. I almost intervened with one guy who was extra frisky.
Here’s what I know. None of the guys who made a cat call or gave a tip to this woman would ever approach her if they saw her at a store or bar. She was way, way way out of everyone’s league. Yet, at the golf course where she’s outnumbered 15,000 to 1, apparently any old guy can spit some game with no fear of getting slapped across the face.
It is so much harder for women to get into the game. I don’t think most men realize that. I was suprised how vocal people were. Ashamed. Then again, it’s 2019 and we still haven’t passed the Equal Rights Act.
Also…(venting on Augusta) This “take” has been KILLING ME all week: “I have a daughter and I think think the Augusta Women’s Amateur is great.”
Why do you need to have a daughter to appreciate equal rights for women? Does that mean if you didn’t have a daughter, you’d be against it? Did you not come from the womb of a mother?
The golf world is so sexist, elitist and racist that I just want to burn it down and buy a private course in the middle of Utah where nobody will bother me.
