It was a sad day today to learn that GFW magazine will no longer exist after the July/Aug issue. Look! The news even had Tiger in tears.
Just when I thought that women’s golf was on its way up, this happens and it makes me realize that we have a long way to go baby!
I hope that the publishers will continue to support the website. Sure, I want to continue blogging on it, but it’s more important that women golfers have a place that they can find what they need and read what they like.
It’s not like Golf Digest and Golf magazine aren’t great reads as well. I subscribe to both, but they don’t have nearly enough content for women.
Women and men may be equal, but they are different. We need to keep the best women’s golf site in the world alive and kicking!
Hey, it kicked butt last month – they had record-breaking traffic in June. I’m not sure I can share how many page views they clocked (that may be confidential), but I can tell you that I was impressed and I’m an Internet marketing consultant.
It’s time for golf fans, male and female, to stand up and say, “Long Live GFW.com!”
Are you with me?
Then go to GFW’s forum page and start making some noise!
