Specific Tips For Women Golfers

Not being female myself, I don't know if the mechanics for women are significantly different than men. I hope these videos are not dealing in stereotypes. I remember some guy...I think it was a CBS golf commentator, but I could be wrong, making some statement about women golfers and anatomy coming under fire...but Wendy's tips in these videos are aimed primarily towards women, so here they are...

The Setup


Shoulder Rotation


Creating Energy In The Backswing

The CBS commentator you are thinking of is Ben Wright, who got fired for making sexist and insulting statements about women golfers and the LPGA...including saying because women had "boobs" they couldn't properly swing a golf club.

Ironically, in the first two of these Wendy Berger videos, she mentions big breasted women and how it affects the swing plane.

They are good little 2 minute tips, much of it which would apply to men too. Thanks BKB.

Ah...yes...that's the one...when I heard Wendy mention big breasted women, a little bell rung in my head...
