Attractive productivity?

A recent research study of golfers on the US women's tour suggests 'attractive' golfers get lower scores and more prize money ... and suggests that this phenomenon of a 'beauty premium' is not uncommon in other sectors.

It also suggests that if an attractive female employee is better rewarded per unit of production than her less attractive co-workers, she might increase her productivity.

Does anyone have evidence of this phenomenon in practice?
