Love golf. Many of the LPGA ladies are easy on the eyes as well. One possible issue with your shots. Were you metering off the girls' faces? They seem pretty dark. Shooting sports outdoors in natural light means meter for faces and risk blown out white clothing and BG, or meter for the overall shot and get shadows on the faces most of the time.

Overall, pretty good.

That's my poor attempt at PP. I like the richer colors when I hit that directpositive effect on lightroom 3.. : )

Thanks for the input. Also, I was mostly focusing at chest level and in evaluated metering mode. I will try the heads next time..

Color and saturation look great. Kind of the way golf is supposed to look!

Try spot metering and aim at the faces of the subject. I also move the focus point to make framing easier. You'll get some blowouts, but those can be fixed a bit after the fact. Dark faces aren't good at all when shooting people doing just about anything!

example of getting face:
