With so many legends, golf is on par (get it?) with other major sports. And with a long history, originating in Scotland in the 15th century, it’s no surprise that golf is a popular sport where many skilled professionals have made their name. Of course, it’s not just the player who makes the game great. As the saying goes, “behind every great man there’s a great woman,” and we can’t ignore the women who support their husbands and boyfriends while they’re out on the green. Don’t go anywhere as we give a little peek into the lives of these amazing women.
