Girls Got Game

TORRANCE, Calif. (June 22, 2007)—Could women golfers be more driven to succeed on the greens than their male counterparts? A new survey from Lexus, in connection with the automaker’s involvement with the upcoming U.S. Women’s Open, reveals that on average, male golfers say the most number of hours spent on a driving range in one day is four. In actuality, women are spending even more hours than men on the driving range (5 vs. 4 hours).
In addition to the survey, Lexus has created a multi-faceted program to provide an unforgettable experience for U.S. Women’s Open attendees. A Full Swing Golf simulator, located within the Lexus vehicle display tent, will allow golf enthusiasts to take their best shots on a virtual 2007 U.S. Open Oakmont course. Players can compete for a chance to win a trip to the 2008 U.S. Women’s Open Championship.
Visitors can also have their photo taken with a full-size replica of the U.S. Women’s Open trophy in front of a backdrop of the Pine Needles golf course in the Lexus vehicle display tent. Once snapped, participants can download and forward their photo online at as well as get tips to improve their own game.
