Women taking up sports later in life, just for the love of the game

Kelly Cahill, manager of a health-care company in Halifax, isn’t a total sports newbie – for years she has been a runner and hit softball diamonds. Her foray into golf started because she wanted to play alongside her husband, a long-time golf enthusiast, so she joined PGA of Canada pro Sara Wilson’s Metro Ladies Golf Inc. club four years ago to brush up on the game.

“I’ve since dropped the husband and kept up golf,” says Cahill, 41, the mother of a 10-year-old son.

The first few times on the links were “terrifying” because she was new to a sport that’s male-oriented, but she has since gained many friends and opened herself to other athletic and social adventures. She even plans to take up curling this fall after experiencing an event put together by Metro Ladies Golf.

Fall arrives this coming Saturday and like many golfers it is my favourite time to enjoy golf. If you are prepared you can enjoy the weather and your golf. Here are my tips on enjoying fall golf:
Dress in Layers – Be sure to have a jacket that will protect you from the wind but has enough stretch to allow you to swing. A warm stretch sweater, toque and a compression shirt will help keep you warm. Winter golf gloves will also help keep your hands warm
Club Up – Cooler temperatures mean the ball won’t go as far. Be sure to take an extra club and swing easy.
Play a softer ball – The softer ball will give you more feel around the greens helping you stop the ball faster.
Enjoy an adult beverage!

Thanks for the support out there today at @delltechchamp. Looking to make a #FedExCup move this week!

In the 1970s, I began fighting for a place in women's sports, and I’m not done yet. Today only 29% of girls continue to play sports after leaving school. Join me and @adidastennis to keep girls playing.

Thanks to this club, I am enjoying meeting new golfing ladies! Not many of my friends play, so I am grateful to be able to get out and play with other like-minded ladies in Halifax. Plus I am not wasting my time getting a group together.
