Fairway fashions. (In the Swing).

Women golfers have been discriminated against when it comes to golf-wear fashion opportunities. That's because, until recently, pro shops were filled with plain and boxy skirts and tops, mostly in white and sky-blue, that looked as if they had been made from bedsheets or ironing board covers. Worse, the fabrics did not breathe well.

Now, thanks to such designers as Ralph Lauren and Tommy Hilfiger, along with innovative golf sportswear collections on offer from new companies, women golfers can choose from a wide array of causally smart clothing that's colorful, creative, comfortable, cool and, at last, tapered!

New sportswear companies responsible for producing wide-ranging lines and making women look handsome on the course include Jamie Saddock, EP PRO, Tehama, Como Sport, and Marcia.

Marcia, a California-based sports apparel company, offers choices in everything from Bermuda shorts to capri pants to sleeveless polo shirts--golf clothing that doubles as off-course wear and appeals to across-the-board age groups.

The Wright Approach on South Tamiami Trail does a splendid job of stocking their shop with all those brands, and then some. Consider visiting, and tell my old New York golf friend Jim Wright I sent you.
