"There have been times when I've seen women who are playing golf in their photos, and I've right-swiped even though I'd never consider right-swiping otherwise," he says.
"We talk about golf on every single date, but it doesn't dominate the conversation.She considered only guys who made mention of the sport, whether it was through a photo they'd posted or a reference in their short bio.On a cold day in February, she came across a guy with whom she'd flirted at Chelsea Piers in December.She turned to to find a serious relationship, making up a whimsical user name that contained the word "golf." Many men were immediately interested."The first messages I got were always about golf," she says. Most women just say, ' Yeah, I love to eat and drink and have fun.'

In more than 400 words, he explained why they should either "hit balls at Chelsea Piers" or play at a private course he'd recently joined. "I got into a total stranger's car, which in hindsight probably wasn't the smartest idea, but it was a full day of getting to know each other, and it didn't feel forced," Elizabeth says. Golf is such a nice launch pad for getting to know someone."Though a four-hour first date might seem daunting, it can be far less awkward than a typical first date."Looking for golfers is a nice way to meet a successful man," Elizabeth says. He and I are both pursuing our goals together, and it's awesome."Though the majority of low-handicap women who play golf almost always exclusively seek male golfers, the reverse isn't true. In fact, 80 percent of golfers in the United States are male, according to the National Golf Foundation.
"A girl's pool of potential dates is much bigger than a guy's," Rhoades says.
"I was trying to hit on him, and he wasn't having it," Samantha says.
"Turns out, he had just come out of a long relationship and wasn't ready to date.
Finally, I came across a photo I could connect with. That meant he'd seen my photos, too, and he was intrigued.
After mindlessly left-swiping through hundreds of mundane Tinder images (a left-swipe means, "Nope, I'm not interested"), I stopped at a photo of a guy standing on the seventh tee at Pebble Beach. I messaged him first: "Seventh tee at Pebble Beach!
Elizabeth and her man have now been dating for nearly three years.
