Great Gobbling Golf!

Last week the ladies of Ka’anapali Resort invited all golfgals on the island (locals and tourists), to enjoy a friendly round of gobbling golf to celebrate and give thanks for all that we have. It was a great gift for all visitors like me who only had ... Read More »

If it’s good enough for Annika, it’s good enough for me!

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailBack in 2010 I was very focused on improving my golf handicap.  I put together a 10 step program to better golf and dropped 3 points off my index.  It was a very good year. 2011?  Not so much… Last year my handicap remained flat even though my game felt okay and I shot my lowest score twice while vacationing ...

Birdies and Bogeys on my way to 17.5

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailOn January 5th, 2010, I started my 10 step journey towards “better golf”. I wanted to prove to myself that at “my age” I could put together a program that would help me reduce my handicap by 3 points in 12 months.

“Heaven on Earth” is spelled L a n a ‘ i

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailAfter spending 2 weeks on Maui last year playing golf at some of the world’s most beautiful golf resorts every day, I didn’t think life could get any better.  And then I experienced Lana’i.

Big Break Sandals 9: Sara said it best – “Elimination Sucks!”

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemail Remember when long drive champion Jamie Sadlowski visited the Big Break set?  And remember what Sara did that day?  She drove her ball over 270 yards!  From that point on, everyone thought Sara’s long game was rock solid.

Big Break Sandals 8: Taryn Takes a Tumble

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemail I always hate it when the contestants I’ve come to know and interview finally take the walk on the Big Break. I never know when, or if, it will happen, but when you interview 3 ladies every week, you know for sure at least 2 of them will be in this position at some point. Taryn was given two “Saves” ...

Golf getaways aren’t just for golfguys!

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailI’ve been hearing about golf escapes for men for years, always feeling a twinge of envy when I read about the fun they have and lifetime memories they take away from their trips. I always wondered sadly why we never hear about getaways for golfgals. I figured it was just that women were too wrapped up in the daily grind ... Read More »

Vote for Peggy at the US Open Challenge and help make history!

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailNormally I don’t get all excited about the US Open Challenge. In the past I’ve watched a bit of it, but it always seemed like a way for celebs to show off (not big into pro-ams either) and average Joe’s to be humiliated. Remember 2008 at Torrey Pines where it all started…John Atkinson, an 8-handicapper, shot 114. In 2009, at ... Read More »
