So now you’re wondering … who in the world do we know?! We are going to take a moment to give ourselves a humble brag. FTL founder Abby was featured as one of nine influential voices in golf in this Golf Digest article by Daniel Rapaport. We figured it’s okay to take a moment to pat ourselves on the back, and overall, yay (!!) to being featured.
“I still get worried that people won’t show up, but I tend to be pleasantly surprised by the enthusiasm, and women keep attending, so I’m not going to stop now.” We are here to stay, ladies.
Also, please give a warm welcome to our newest contributor, Kristen! Her style is impeccable and we know she’s a perfect addition to our team. If there’s something you aren’t seeing in the newsletter and want more of it, let us know! Email Abby at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am embracing #hatgirlsummer and have upgraded my sun protection with this visor! It comes in a bunch of colors and is surprisingly sturdy for the price. -sara
I love this body sunscreen, especially for those first short/skort rounds of Spring and Summer. As someone who deals with dry skin during season changes, this is a great option to help lock in the moisture and protect from the sun. -kristen
Hot dogs and Nature Valley granola bars at the turn are "a tradition unlike any other.” If you're looking to change up your on course snacks and want some options that are a bit quirky then you have to try these! I've been liking the salty flavors of individually packaged pickles and olives on the go. -brooke
Ladies of Golf: Beverly Bell, author
Golf and murder. Two words we didn’t think we’d ever utter on the Fore the Ladies podcast, but we are so pumped it happened. For this Ladies of Golf episode, Beverly Bell, the author of the novel The Murder of Marion Miley, joined us. Beverly shares how she came upon Marion’s true story, her past work with magazines, being nominated for a golf book award and including her love for the sport into this novel. - abby
With the weather in NY finally feeling like summer, it's time to "wine" al fresco. I love transferring a full bottle into this thermos; it keeps it cool and allows you to continue enjoying your time outside without having to worry about a steamy bottle or having to run inside! Plus, it comes in a ton of fun colors, making for a great gift. -kristen
We're excited for our friend and Five Iron Golf Team FTL member Morgan Haberfield to launch her golf apparel brand, Olea Athletics.
