In honor of International Women's Day, we have pulled some of our favorite instruction articles from the last year or so that feature women. Most of these stories are from LPGA players who come from all over the world and some highlight female teachers from our Best Young Teachers list. Though there are still predominantly more male golf professionals, there are great female instructors out there to take lessons from. There's no better day than International Women's Day to check our list of Best Teachers in Your State to see if there's a female teacher near you.

There's a lot women in this game can teach you.
