HOW can a not so tall teenager like Lydia Ko hit the ball so far? …. tour veteran Johnny Miller reckons women golfers have to do a lot of things “better than the men” to make up for a comparative lack of strength.

It is often suggested older male golfers beginning to lose some strength and flexibility should look to the ladies for continued inspiration … rather than attempting to continue to rely on brute force.
