She received a message from a guy whose user name was a famous golf resort. Sitting across a table from a stranger in the corner of a dimly lit bar while forcing conversation over alcoholic beverages is hardly an ideal way to meet anyone.The awkward pauses inherent in those conversations (and in any conversation) feel far less awkward outside and on a golf course, where a shared experience and outdoor stimuli provide for natural talking points.The last nongolfer she dated was back in high school."Golfers are just who I'm attracted to," says Samantha, who has a 1.4 Index."Looking for golfers is a nice way to meet a successful man," Elizabeth says.

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."Looking for golfers doesn't make dating easier, but your options are better.They're higher quality."

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!
Jealous you've played there." He was stunned I could identify the hole.
After a few messages back and forth (he was funny and sarcastic and wrote in full, grammatically correct sentences), we agreed to grab a drink.
But he went home that night and told his brother all about me.
He even tried to find me on Facebook and Google." In time, each right-swiped the other on Tinder, and they've been dating since.
