I signed up for a lesson at The PGA Superstore. They were booked until Feb 20th. No big deal too cold here in NY.
Hopefully it is a productive lesson. Any questions in particular I should ask the pro giving the lesson?
I heard that at one time women's tennis TV ratings were usually higher than men's in the US. But the opposite was true globally. Not sure if that's still true, but I think people called it the Williams factor. It was similar to (maybe not the same level as) the Tiger factor affecting TV ratings in golf.
Right. I gave these examples elsewhere:
Korn Ferry Tour players vs. PGA Tour players.
Public defenders vs. high-profile power attorneys.
No-name actors vs. Tom Cruise or whoever the hot-shot actors are these days.
This isn't a female accountant and a male accountant literally doing the same type of work and producing the same results getting paid differently solely because one is a woman.
Yeah, I agree I don't think women's tennis is the perfect equivalent, but it may be the best comparison we've got.
But the fact that the events are held at the same place at the same time is something golf likely won't be able to match. Not without smaller fields and other things.
