Abstract

Abstract
This working paper examines the role of the golf endorser influencing the purchasing behaviour of female golfers’ golf equipment and clothing. This involved a comparative study of North American and UK female golfers. This paper is one phase of the research: twenty in-depth interviews (ten with UK female golfers and ten with North American female golfers). The key findings identify that British female golfers do not perceive the professional female golfer as a celebrity. In contrast North American golfers believe the professional female golfer as a well-known status. A unique finding was that nationality played a key role in connecting with the female golf consumer. Of the few female golf endorsements, the North American LPGA tour players are prevalent, which was found to be a contributing factor to their growing celebrity status. In Britain the use of non-golfing models is contributing to the lack of connection with professional female golfers.
