how's 2016? I've only written 2015 by mistake once, so I think I'm off to a great start!
I always feel that a new year brings new possibilities, and I always like to set new intentions. I like to pick a word to represent what I want more of in my life, and this year my word is CREATE.
I picked CREATE for several reasons, but mainly that I want to focus on creating events and programs that will be educational, fun and useful.
The last few weeks I've worked with my fellow LPGA Professional Jamie Leno Zimron to organize a golf retreat for women in San Diego. Last year, Jamie founded EveryBusinessWomanGolf, and I am excited to join forces with Jamie again. The retreat will feature special guest Dr. Renee Powell. In February of 2015, Renee became one of the first 7 women ever granted Honorary Membership into the Royal & Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews (alongside LPGA greats Annika Sorenstam and Louis Suggs). I met Renee last spring when I was a guest speaker at the first EBWG Retreat in Napa, and I am honored to teach alongside her once again. More info at www.everybusinesswomangolf.com.
In other news, I was elected Secretary of the LPGA Western Section, which is the largest teaching section of the LPGA and includes California, Oregon, Washington and British Columbia. I really look forward to getting more involved and support the organization in a different way than I have before. Wish me luck!
The last two years, I've taught over 2000 golf lessons. Whoa! I didn't know that until recently. I feel fortunate to meet so many wonderful people though the game of golf and to share my knowledge and experience. Thank you!
