Men certainly can learn a huge amount from women, especially on the strategic side of the game, very few women regularly lose balls, with the exception of having to carry water.
Men, with the same handicap, will generally lose more golf balls in a single round because they try to “overpower” the golf course, instead of playing it within their ability level, as women do. Women can learn from men as well, they can learn how sometimes taking a risk is beneficial, in the right circumstance, or how maybe choosing a different line from the tee could reduce the distance they have for their second shots.
Please remember that juniors are the future of the game, and as long as they behave on the golf course and adhere to the rules of golf then they can be an absolute joy to play with. Older golfers can “marvel” in the apparent ease they have of hitting the golf ball, and if the junior is fairly new to the game their ability to just move on from one shot to another, with very little worry. On the flip side of the coin for those “grumpy old gits” is they can teach the juniors the rules, etiquette, and traditions of the famous game. Next time you go out on the course be aware of how you react to being paired up or having to play with someone in your society that you have only spoken to in society functions, or a fleeting hello when you arrive on the golf course. Your reaction to who you are playing with can have a positive or negative effect on the way that YOU play, given your opponent an advantage before you even hit your first shot. Instead of worrying about the player you are playing with, be concerned and aware of what you are doing, after all, the only person hitting your shots and controlling your game is you!! (Or perhaps an over efficient marshal!!)
