“Michelle Wie was like, ‘Let's go.’ It's like, guys, it's the [Women’s] Mid-Am; let's be realistic, my body is breaking.” – Aliea Clark via the USGA from competing in the finals of the U.S. Women’s Mid-Am Championship
I feel like we were just putting together the September newsletter, but we’re baaack! I’m getting so excited for our Hearts & Darts Golf Getaway at Streamsong Resort next month. If you weren’t able to join us, keep an eye out for our 2022 golf getaway announcements as well as our 2022 intro-to-golf clinic schedule!
Speaking of 2022, if anyone would like to host a golf outing in their area, give me a shout! I’d be happy to help you find a golf course and group to join you. I’m really hoping to have groups of women in different regions of the country get together to play (ie chapters) and if I can help facilitate that, I think we can create something super special. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested in taking that on next year (think like 1-2 play days in your area).
Additionally, while we’re in planning mode, we’d love for you to take a few moments to complete our community survey. We’re trying to find out more about you, your experience with FTL and more. We’ll be sending some FTL swag to one lucky participant. Thank you for your continued support!
Anyway, I kind of like having a little hiatus from playing golf regularly. As they say, distance makes the heart grow fonder. Since it’s been about a month or so since I’ve played, I probably need to kick into gear for Streamsong! I hope to see y’all at an upcoming event soon and as always, please feel free to share events with your friends across the nation!

Chicken wings - great for watching football, not great in your golf swing. I like this tip from Erika Larkin to help you eliminate the "chicken wing" in your movement. She posts great, straightforward tips and drills on Instagram - I will be trying this one for sure. -sara

I saw my favorite “rich mom” TikTok star Tinx wearing this Wilson polo and loved the whole look! It has an open sweater knit material which I think will be perfect all autumn long. -abby
Golf 101: WTF is a Handicap Index?
Have you ever been asked, what’s your handicap? Or maybe you’ve been with a group talking about how they’re a 24, a 16, a 2. Or maybe you’ve played a round where people are giving each other strokes on holes. What does it all mean? Today we’re going to uncover all of that with our next golf 101 episode, WTF is a Golf Handicap Index? Our expert for this subject is Jenny Ford, assistant executive director of the Rochester District Golf Association. We cover all the basics of handicaps - from how to get one to how to use it. Hope you enjoy!

I've been known to bring banana bread slices as snack out on the course and since it's finally verging on proper fall weather here in New York, I am going to try this seasonally appropriate, super easy Pumpkin Bread. Way better than a dry granola bar when you need a snack at the turn! -sara
