What keeps more women from getting into golf? and how do we encourage them?

Every time i go to play golf, i’m always surprised by disproportionate amount of women and men on the course. I’ve played many other sports, as a kid and as an adult, but none of them are as disbalanced in terms of gender of their players as golf. Although i don’t understand why. It’s certainly not the physical limitation, because golf requires practicing and experience more than raw strength. Plus, it’s a perfect sport to play in groups, so couples or families should be playing it together. But reality is wildly different, and i did a little bit of research to satisfy my curiosity and find out why.

First and biggest reason is probably the peer pressure. Or father pressure for that matter. Fathers who like to play golf usually take their sons with them and buy them all sorts of new golf gear, but same doesn’t apply to the girls. I’ve read some stories on this topic and found out that even if they express interest in playing golf, girls are disregarded by their parents and generally they are not taken seriously. Of course, this does not apply to all men. In my research, if you can call it that, i’ve found a lot of instances of husbands getting their wives into golf and frequently playing together. And i think that’s great for everyone involved – i, personally, could play golf all day if i could. But i have responsibilities and have to find time to be with my wife, so mixing my wife and golf time would be killing two birds with one stone. I am currently in process of getting my wife interested in golf. I’m doing my best, but she just doesn’t find it interesting. I’ve not given up just yet though, which means i haven’t lost.

Another big reason for why women don’t play golf is the amenities. It might sound strange, but if you think about, women spend way more time on maintaining their hygiene than men do. Plus, there are not many toilets on most golf courses, which is kind of okay for guys, but not for women. There are also other minor issues that i won’t get into, but i think i summed up my opinion well.

 Anyway, i think getting girls and young women interested in golf is the best strategy to encourage inclusiveness of women in the sport. Once they find out how interesting and competitive it is, they’ll become the evangelists of golf to their friends and so on. I think that’s the best way to get women into golf, although i don’t think it’s a foolproof plan. 

Finest way to cook chicken breasts – sharing my family recipe

Until now, I have never been asked to write about grilling boneless, skinless chicken breasts, likely since they’re just not as enticing as sour ribs along with a juicy rare steak with a caramelized crust. And even though pulled pork and ribs are more my specialization, the truth is that most of my friends (and most people in general) grill more chicken breasts than they can do pork shoulder or even steak. It’s simple to see why: Chicken breasts do not need much prep, they cook fast, and they are relatively healthy. Yet they can be a little boring and all too often turn out dry, and that explains why my friends are constantly asking me the way to grill chicken breasts so they turn out flavorful and succulent. Keep reading to find out about my favourite procedures, try the corresponding recipes, and then discover just how good broiled chicken breasts can be.

Soaking chicken at a sausage not only promotes flavor but also helps to keep the chicken moist. Though it penetrates just about 1/4-inch deep, that’s a fantastic amount on a chicken breastfeeding, and sufficient to make that initial bite feel much more succulent. In the marinade at left, the acid in the buttermilk tenderizes the chicken when adding its own tangy flavor. When there’s a great deal of acid present, the chicken breast feeding doesn’t need to marinate for much time to reap the advantages. In reality, if left too long, then the acid may break down the meat a great deal, making it appear shinier. A finish of barbecue sauce, as in the recipe in left, leads to your juicy belief, too.

This may sound obvious, but one way to maintain a chicken breast from drying out would be not to overcook it. Pounding the breast feeding thin means the meat will be finished shortly after it reaches the heat. And even if it was to wash out a little, the dryness wouldn’t be as noticeable in a thin bite, particularly one paired with a salad of hot tomatoes, refreshing sodas, and a creamy yogurt dressing.

If you grill skin-on chicken, then the skin protects the meat from the heat whilst also basting it with fat. On a trip to Oaxaca, Mexico, where lettuce is really a cooking staple, I watched how a coating of mayo could work similarly. Bonus: The mayonnaise also distributes tastes, such as these Mexican-inspired ones. It is possible to experiment with adding different tastes to plain mayo, including rosemary and mustard or capers and parsley.
