WOMEN (GOLFERS) ARE FROM VENUS: The Eeeek Factor

WOMEN (GOLFERS) ARE FROM VENUS: The Eeeek Factor
Women are from Venus and men are from Mars. We get it. In another post, awhile back, I touched on the disconnect between what women really want (when it comes to their golf gear) and it got me thinking about food and shopping (sex even). A friend and I were talking the other day about this Mars-Venus thing and how it's…

PUT DOWN THE DUCKY: Words to Golf By

PUT DOWN THE DUCKY: Words to Golf By
"You gotta put down the ducky if you wanna play the saxophone." Words to golf by. Once upon a time, in a galaxy far, far away, I had a niece who was two years old and hooked on Sesame Street. It must have been over a Christmas holiday (since I wasn’t otherwise in the habit of taking my morning coffee…

CUTE SHOES. HAPPY GOLF

CUTE SHOES. HAPPY GOLF
It's crazy that I make golf shoes for women, but hardly have time to play golf myself these days. No excuses here, but it probably explains the appalling condition of my game. Riding to the rescue was my good friend Toby Tucker Peters, who landed up in the Hamptons last week for a little R&R (read: time out from her four adorable-but-very-young…

PGA SHOW 2012: IS ANYBODY ROCKING THE BOAT?

PGA SHOW 2012: IS ANYBODY ROCKING THE BOAT?
This post is dedicated to the intrepid women entrepreneurs in the golf industry who are trying, against tough odds, to bring beautiful products to market for women golfers. (Here’s to the sisterhood of golf entrepreneurs. You know who you are.) Last year about this time, I returned from the PGA Show in Orlando, Florida, with lots to say about what…

WOMEN & BUSINESS ON THE GOLF COURSE: How We Roll

WOMEN & BUSINESS ON THE GOLF COURSE: How We Roll
I joined Hope Greenberg (Lucky magazine) and Toby Tucker Peters (Toby Tucker Golf) for a friendly round of tour-quality golf the other day. What? You don't believe me? It was amazing. Phenomenal. Unbelievable really. We putted our knickers off. (Swamp land for sale in Florida.) Some of you asked to see what Equipt women's golf  shoes look like on grass.…

BE THE HOLE: What I Wore To Play Golf Week #4

BE THE HOLE: What I Wore To Play Golf Week #4
The thing about golf, bless its charbroiled heart, is that just when you get that hitch worked out of your swing at the tee box, your putting heads south on the green. I mean Bahamas. Bermuda Triangle. Don't expect a post card. TREND BUMP I was putting up a storm for the first four weeks of league play – sinking…

ZEN GOLF & THE POMEGRANATE TREE: What I Wore Week #3

ZEN GOLF & THE POMEGRANATE TREE: What I Wore Week #3
You will never grow a pomegranate tree if you plant a peach pit. The pomegranate quip came from one of my textile manufacturers in India many years ago. First name, Jasbir. He likened the game of golf to the game of life – you get out what you put in. I wasn’t playing golf yet and had no clue what…

ALEXIS THOMPSON: PRETTY (AWESOME) IN PINK

ALEXIS THOMPSON: PRETTY (AWESOME) IN PINK
PINK BUZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ All I can say is I would kill for that swing - OK, and legs. There are at least a thousand good reasons to flog the topic of style, color and audacity one more time, but most important, it's my raison d'être. Check out the pink, please. It just vibrates off the page. Is it Azalea? Bougainvillea? Bubblegum? Definitely…
