In 1867 a women’s group began playing, or at least putting, at St Andrews, supported by many including Old Tom Morris. Initially known as the St Andrews Ladies Golf Club, it later became the St Andrews Ladies Putting Club and is now The Ladies Putting Club of St Andrews. Ladies golf has come a long way since this time in the sport’s history. Now we are seeing ladies propel themselves to new heights in golf, sometimes even giving the men a run for their money.
Since the days of the St Andrews Ladies Golf Club, the sport of golf has evolved leaps and bounds. From training methods to equipment to facilities, the modern game is packed full of state of the art elements. Golf attire has evolved along with every other aspect of the professional game and both amateurs and professionals alike know the value of wearing comfortable, breathable clothes while negotiating their favorite golf course.
