That's the problem though....if I, as an average male golfer, want to watch someone closer to my own ability play golf, I go out and play with my buddies.
When I watch golf on tv, or spend money and time to go to a tournament, it's because I want to see something amazing. Something I can't begin to comprehend, even though I've been around the game my whole life. Watching someone, male or female, hit a 7 iron 155 yds just doesn't do it.....nor does "going for it" on a 490 yard par 5.
The ladies are great golfers. But they just play a much better version of the same game a lot of us play. The men play a COMPLETELY different game. All the marketing in the world isn't going to change that.
