Let It All out

By Golfrefugees

Has women’s golf got something missing?
After watching two-weeks of tennis at Wimbledon, it hit me.
It’s too silent. There’s no grunt, or squeak or shriek at the point of impact with the ball. It’s just as physical to hit a golf ball as a tennis ball, so why no sound from the players?
Granted it would cause some confusion when the ‘quiet please’ signs went up.

To be on par with their counterparts, women golfers need to make a noise approaching 95 decibels and for a duration of 1.5 seconds.

With 70% of women tennis players on tour screeching, there's a long way to go.
