My Top Ten Golf Holes on Maui

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailIt’s hard to believe it’s almost American Thanksgiving. And although I have much to be thankful for, including the ability to play the game I love (even if golf doesn’t always love me back), I’m not all that grateful today as I look out to the wet, cold weather that has settled in to my town (and is expected to ...

Golfing during the Winter Olympics

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailThere is nothing quite as wonderful as your first golf game of the season, no matter how you play. But, when it happens in the middle of the Winter Olympics in Vancouver, Canada, it’s that much sweeter. My golfguy and I always start our golf season at the Northview Golf and Country Club in Surrey, for many reasons: Course conditions ... Read More »

Kicking Ass in the Great White North!

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailI can’t believe it’s been a week since the Olympic Flame was handed off right in front of my house on its amazing journey across Canada. It seems like just yesterday that I was drinking champagne with friends, running outside to see the torch pass, jumping up and down cheering on the runners and feeling like a part of history. ...

Three Cheers for the Spirit of Golf “In School Program”!

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailOne of the things I love about the whole social media explosion is the wealth of new friends I’ve made – people I’ve never physically met, but who share a common love for golf and growing the game. One such cyber-friend is Greg Cox, Executive Director of The Spirit of Golf Foundation. I met Greg on Facebook and learned from ... Read More »

Feel at “home” away from home at your next PGA event

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailThe Olympics are only a few days away and Vangroovy is buzzing! Okay, they have to truck snow to Cypress Mountain for the snowboarders (it’s been so warm, there’s no snow up there), but other than that, things are moving along pretty smoothly. Hmmm… maybe not so smoothly for some folks who thought they would be floating pretty on the ... Read More »

Kudos to these pro women golfers who won’t roll over for sponsorship

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailAs a marketing consultant, I’m often asked by young pro golfers, “Can you help me find a sponsor?” Even in the best economic times, sponsorship money is hard to come by. So imagine what it’s like for today’s new golf professionals who are trying to make it in the big leagues. It is especially difficult women, who constantly struggle to ... Read More »

Mike Perez got fired up to win Big Break Disney!

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemail So did you pick the winner of Big Break Disney? Wow! I don’t think Golf Channel could have written a better back 9 script if they tried. I’m still a little speechless. I started writing this post around the 13th hole thinking Tony was a shoe-in given his play to that point, but no sooner did I have him ... Read More »

Mirror Tees let you “Tip it and Rip it!”

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailThey say that good things come in small packages and recently I was reminded of how true that cliche really is – even in golf. Last month I was vacationing in Maui and played a round of golf at Ka’anapali with my new galpal, Shelley, and her friend, Tony. I expected my game to be a bit rusty, having not ... Read More »

Big Break Disney 7 – Gipper Gets Wet

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailIt was a sad night for the Finau family on Big Break Disney, but a scenario that had to be played out eventually – either this week or next, one of the Finau brothers had to go home. Tonight Gipper was the one who “missed the fairway”. And although I was sad to watch Gipper go home, I was left ... Read More »
