Everything else being equals a woman cannot drive a golf bail more distance than a man, because of one reason. Men are physically stronger than women. Strength and power connect to each other.

Power is a factor of muscle contraction. Muscle contraction moves the club over ones head and then as various muscle groups contract, the club accelerates making contact with the ball, sending it down the fairway. This is true of all golfing technique from driving to putting.

To improve the distance one drives off the tee all one needs to do is improve the strength of the muscles involved in that movement. It is that simple. Strength improvements call for a strength-training program. No amount of hours swinging the club will increase strength. It will increase ones skill connected to that specific movement.

Improved performance in sports participation needs special attention to several factors to change and enhance. These factors are (1) Physical Proportions (2) Skill Training (3) Strength (4) Flexibility (5) Endurance (6) Positive Imagery and Clothing.

Maximum performance of any sport demands a fitness training system that will consider these factors. The goal is, to improve strength, flexibility, muscle endurance, and concentration; therefore eliminating fatigue, reducing muscle and joint pain and improving mental focus.

1. It is impossible to change Physical Proportions. Bodily proportions are a result of genetics and contribute to success, even if the athlete lacks average amounts other certain elements. Genetics combine individuality such and the length of ones arms, torso, legs and other more complex elements such as the neuromuscular system, all which determines our "natural ability."

2. Skill Training calls for one to practice the sport of choice. Practice is very important and is a major contributor to improved performance. Skill levels come only from repetitive practice of the movements involved in golf. Consider that only perfect practice makes perfect. Seek the guidance of a professional.

3. Strength is about ones physical power and is of supreme importance for women, and often misunderstood. Property developed strength can prevent injuries to muscles, tendons, ligaments and bones.

Strength is the major element needed to help the body absorb the impact forces connected to golf and other events in daily life. Strength also allows one to hold skill positions better, longer, enables rhythmic movements without fatigue, and reduces the chance of poor body positioning.

Proper strength training will produce a corresponding improvement in endurance

4. Flexibility is the complete range-of-motion around a joint or joints of the body. Stretching can improve flexibility. To do so, stretch slowly and hold maximum range positions for at least twenty seconds for best results. Do not bounce during the stretch. Fast movements in various directions will not improve flexibility. Proper strength training will improve flexibility.

5. Endurance is a requirement for some sports such as long distance running. Golf does not need high levels of endurance. However, high energy levels call for mental focus to sustain consistency in the skills needed for 18 holes of golf. Energy comes from the food one eats or drinks.

A major Improvement in high-energy food is the recent development of nutritionally correct food bars. These bars provide adequate calories and nutrition as found in a typically healthy, low calorie meal, prepared at home.

The nutrient balances provide just the right mix of protein, carbohydrate, and fat percentages. This blend of nourishment provides high energy and helps the body, mind, and spirit to function at maximum capacity, for extended periods.

6. Positive imagery is mentally focusing on the skills connected to golf, always focusing on getting successful performance. These mental skills are practiced anywhere, anytime and will contribute to improvement of ones sport performance.

First, however, you must understand the skills involved in the sport. Learn the skills from a competent instructor. Then, you must practice these skills in your mind's eye several times a day. Perfect mental practice makes perfect performance.

(7) Clothing which provides adequate protection from the weather is mandatory. It must provide freedom of movement to serve its purpose, and clothing makes one look cool on the course.

To achieve maximum performance in minimum time, consider adding a properly designed, total fitness regimen to your lifestyle.

Many of us recall old movie images of golfers in plaid pants, sweater vests, billed caps, and other stereotypical apparel of golfing lore. While clothing on golf courses has changed over the years, proper golf apparel is still expected. And the greater the prestige of the golf club, the greater the expectation you will abide by their dress code.

Most clubs and courses, even the public ones, require that golfers follow a dress code. The most common rule is the collared shirt. Many courses require long pants, not jeans, and golf shoes.

5 Minutes Early Is Late

When it comes to actually starting your game, the primary rule of etiquette is to show up on schedule for your tee time. That means you will have already done everything else in preparation for the start of the golf game. You'll need time to park your car, warm up, practice, buy balls, change, and pick up a cart. Being early is a matter of consideration for others.

Leave Cell Phones In The Real World

The exclusion of cell phones from golf apparel is another common courtesy on the links. Cell phones should be left in your car or locker. If you do need to bring 1 onto the course for emergencies, keep it turned off.

When you're on the course, you'll need to understand how the other golfers in your group want to play. Some let the best score tee off on the next hole, while others let whoever is ready tee off first. You can offend players by not following their rules, even if their rules are, from your perspective, wrong.

Time-Honored Conventions Make Golfing Unique

An obsession with quiet is another characteristic for which golfers are known. Like most traditions, this one is based on necessity. When your object is to hit a small object with a long pole, you need all of your concentration. Even when golfing with friends, respect the fundamental rule of keeping quiet during shots, and standing out of the direct line of vision.

Today's golfing rules of etiquette can seem archaic -- a throwback to days of old. They harken back to a slower paced time when consideration for others was perhaps easier. In the 21st century, golfing provides us a time away from the bustle of everyday living. Though golf is highly competitive, it is, nonetheless, a gentleman's -- and gentlewoman's -- game.
