About the Author:

... lifetime lover of the game of golf! Had golfing parents that loved the game and were supportive of what talents (or not) us kids had or showed interest in. Lived alongside the 5th fairway of our local golf club in high school, which is where my "true" love affair with the sport began, and it has continued for 40 years!

    Very interesting!
    I really like the advice on the grip in the video – I’ll give this a try.
    Wow, Mickey Wright really set some records back in the day, and that was before women’s golf was a big thing. I didn’t know much about her at all. The only female golfer I knew about was Babe Didrikson Zaharias!
    Thanks!
