I think there's a whole lot of truth in that statement. Probably why some areas have almost no women golfers and others have a lot. It probably wouldn't even take much to start that ball rolling.
There has never been a single time that my wife ever went to the course alone to play golf, but she always gets excited when her friend calls her and asks if she wants to play. I'm sure both of them would play many more rounds of golf if there were a few more women that wanted to play.
In contrast I used to go to the course every day that I didn't work and play all day long, and every afternoon on the days I did work. If somebody showed up and wanted to play that was great but if nobody showed up I still played all day long anyway.
Totally agree with both of these statements. My wife is another example. She has a lot of fun when we go play, but she would never even consider doing it alone. She has 0% , actually more like negative interest, in playing or practicing golf by herself.
It's sort of like why most women would much rather go shopping with a bunch of girlfriends than to sit in a deer stand alone all day long.
Actually, I'd be with the women on this one. ;) I don't think I'd have any interest in sitting in a deer stand all day long either. I don't think hunting is for me. Would love to try skeet shooting though. And, although I haven't done it in a few years, I also love fly fishing. :)
