With less than a week to go until Women’s Golf Day 2019, golfing legend Annika Sorenstam is urging Women and Girls around the globe to give golf a go, and for all golfers to share their love of the game with the women in their life.
Women’s Golf Day returns for its fourth year on June 4 th in what will be the largest single day celebration of Women’s golf that the world has ever seen. Open to women and girls of all ages and abilities, WGD 2019 will unite women across the globe at over 800 events in 46 countries*, spanning a full 24hour period starting from daybreak in Australia, to sunset in Hawaii.
With so many opportunities to participate, WGD 2019 gives absolute beginners and avid golfers alike the chance to be part of a global community and grow the number of women and girls that experience the multiple benefits that golf has to offer, as Annika explains: “Golf teaches you so much about life. It is so much more than just a game. It’s a community, it’s friendships, it’s fitness, it’s mental well-being, it’s challenging and most of all, it’s fun! I’ve been so lucky to benefit from all of these aspects of the game and would urge women and girls around the world to get involved.
If you want to be part of an incredible community or if you’re already a golfer and you want any of the women in your life to share your experience, then sign up for a Women’s Golf Day event and take the first steps on an amazing journey.”
WGD unites women and girls around the world and gives them an incredible platform from which they can share their passion with each other and with newcomers to the sport. Each event is a four-hour celebration that combines golf with socializing, which allows women to make the friendships that will keep them coming back for more. Elisa Gaudet, founder of Women’s Golf Day, believes that this combination has contributed to the global sense of unity participants feel during WGD and is integral to the overall success of the campaign.
Elisa said: “Since year one we have made sure that WGD events give the participants the chance to feel part of something much bigger than the event they attend. WGD events are about friendship, networking, and creating communities through playing golf. I passionately believe that golf is an amazing game that offers unique challenges, incredible benefits to our health and wellbeing and unites people through a shared passion. I am proud to be part of the community which loves this sport – we are the ones who elevate it into something truly wonderful. In just four hours, the women and girls who come to WGD events to swing a club for the first time experience this sense of belonging themselves and that’s what makes WGD the global success that it is.”

About the ANNIKA Foundation
Annika created the ANNIKA Foundation to provide opportunities in women’s golf at the junior, collegiate and professional levels while teaching young people the importance of living a healthy, active lifestyle through fitness and nutrition. The Foundation has partnered with key organizations to promote healthy, active lifestyles for children, including SPARK, Florida Hospital for Children in support of its Healthy 100 Kids initiative and The First Tee in development of the Nine Healthy Habits curriculum for children. It annually conducts six major golf events for aspiring junior girls: the ANNIKA Invitational USA presented by Rolex at the World Golf Village in St. Augustine, Florida; ANNIKA Invitational at Mission Hills in China; ANNIKA Invitational Europe and ANNIKA Cup in Sweden; and, in association with the R&A, the ANNIKA Invitational Latin America and ANNIKA Invitational Australasia.
In 2013, the Foundation’s reach extended to the collegiate ranks with the ANNIKA Award presented by 3M (awarded to most outstanding female NCAA Division I golfer) and ANNIKA Intercollegiate presented by 3M (12 team, 54-hole event in Minnesota). SPARK grants to schools, financial support of Healthy 100 Kids, endowing an AJGA ACE Grant, and the “Share My Passion” Golf Clinics are other areas of emphasis.
The title is quick and to the point. No sense in mincing words when it comes to talking about a guy who can overpower Major Championship golf courses the way that Brooks Koepka has.
For some reason or another the golfing fan, in general, is not enamored with Koepka and personally, I don’t I understand it. He exemplifies what the modern professional golfer is about nowadays. He’s the perfect blend of a workout machine and neatly intersects where golf technology and Kinesiology meet. Thus creating the proverbial “video game athlete”. Much fun (in jest) has been made of what would comprise of his Champion’s Dinner in the event that he won The Masters. A protein shake bar with all of the fixings like Kale, Quinoa, Peanut Butter, and Ginger Root to say the least all being readily available.
But the reality is that he’s a machine and if you think about it, Brooks has already put together a Hall of Fame-worthy career together. He has four Major Championships to his name and it certainly is easy to see him capturing more. Think about it… he has four and according to my figures (round figures) he’s about a quarter of the way to 18 Majors. I’m not putting pressure on Koepka but is 18 or 19 a number that the 29-year-old can approach or overtake? A lot would have to fall into place neatly and he would have to stay healthy for it to happen. But it is entirely possible.
Koepka is downright dangerous in Major Championships. Yes, Brooks has borderline superhuman strength or so his growing legend would have you believe. But if there’s a variable that he has that some of his competitors may not it’s his mental toughness. He’s shown that he can hit towering drives, hit delicate approach shots into greens and make putts when he needs to. But he also has shown us in consecutive U.S. Open’s (2017 and 2018) that he has the uncanny ability to win an event when it’s a battle of attrition. Mental toughness when things are seemingly spiraling downward and out of control. But he gets himself righted and finds a way to win.
Look no further than Sunday at the 2019 PGA Championship this past weekend at Bethpage State Park on the insanely difficult Black Course which measured a paltry 7,500 yards this past weekend for the field. He jumped out to a quick lead on Day One and never looked back. The final round proved to be more interesting than it should have been as his seemingly untouchable lead was within reach. But in a similar fashion, like I’ve already alluded to he held on and got some help along the way to win yet another Major “Battle of Attrition”. The cream of the crop rose to the top at Bethpage State Park and the 2019 PGA Championship. Kopeka (-8) and runner-up Dustin Johnson (-6) were six and four shots respectively ahead of the nearest competition. Going to show once again that if you grow out courses and penalize misses you can protect a golf course and their architect even with technology and player development being at the forefront.
I like Brooks Koepka. He speaks his mind and isn’t shy about criticizing other players or issues that are seemingly wrong with the game of golf. Look at his comment regarding slow play stating that it was “kind of embarrassing” or the latest of infamous tantrums of Sergio Garcia earlier this year. He sounds off on the same things that I do and in a way, he’s like my “spirit animal”. Golf really does need more notable guys like him to sound off and call out their peers or state what’s wrong with the game on TOUR or otherwise. I commend Brooks on doing this guy and more importantly congratulations on your 4th Major.

BALD HEAD ISLAND, NC – May 15, 2019 – Bald Head Blues, a golf and island-inspired apparel company, distinguished by its golf cart with surfboard logo, announced today that company brand ambassador, Joel Dahmen, fresh off a hot week at the Wells Fargo Championship, will be teeing it up at the upcoming PGA Championship, donning Bald Head Blues.
“Joel is playing some pretty inspired golf, actually he is on a hot streak. At the Wells Fargo Championship, he shot two consecutive rounds of 66 and captured a runner-up position, just three strokes from the winner. Our team is extremely proud of him, and can’t wait to see him navigate Bethpage Black. We believe with his level of accuracy off the tee, we’re going to see some of his best golf yet,” commented Bald Head Blues Founder & CEO, Claude Pope.
In Dahmen’s quest for the Wannamaker Trophy, he will be sporting apparel from Bald Head Blues’ Spring Collection. To combat some of the upcoming inclement weather, he will be wearing the company’s signature performance “Quarter Zip” jacket. He will also wear the highly popular, Albatross Polo golf shirt, in a variety of colors. The Albatross Polo golf shirt features ComfortDry Technology, which is lightweight, promotes moisture wicking, and has a 4-way stretch for ultimate performance. All of Dahmen’s apparel will be embroidered with the Bald Head Blues distinct logo.
Dahmen has enjoyed a successful 2019 PGA TOUR season with his runner-up position at the Wells Fargo, which allowed him to compete at the PGA Championship, but it also secured his 2020 PGA TOUR card. His high level of play also captured a T-9 finish at the Farmers Insurance and a T-12 finish at the Players Championship. He is currently ranked #32 in the Fed Ex Cup points and has won over 1.7 million in prize money.
These notable finishes, and Dahmen’s overall success this season can be attributed to his driving accuracy. He is currently ranked #20th on the PGA TOUR in driving accuracy.
“Bethpage has some pretty difficult rough, imposing bunkers, and awkward angles, but look for Joel to be in the middle of the fairway,” added Pope.
In 2018, Dahmen signed a two year Bald Head Blues endorsement deal. Since joining the Bald Head Blues team, he is playing some of the best golf of his career.
About Bald Head Blues
“Clothing for Coasting”
For over 25 years, the Pope family has enjoyed the wonder and majesty of Bald Head Island with its acres of beaches, untouched marshes, maritime forests, pristine harbor, and casual coastal lifestyle. It’s a special place where nature’s abundance and casual lifestyle inspired the formation of Bald Head Blues. An apparel company that embraces the island’s extraordinary experience.
Unique to the island is its mode of transportation. Locals and tourists alike use electric golf carts to get around and more than often they are hauling beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, and surf boards. This island lifestyle where a quick ride to the beach becomes an adventure is represented by the Bald Head Blues logo.
All pieces in the Bald Head Blues Collections are fun, casual, colorful and classic. They employ high-performance fabrics, refined designs and an inimitable attention to details. The new 2019 Spring Collection which includes Aruba, Coral, Lavender, Regatta, and Spring magnify the island’s vibrant colors. Each series is bold, fresh, and energetic.
Bald Head Blues is known for their coastal and island style but their collections also incorporate technology like “Comfort Flex” which combines Pima cotton with the performance and stretch of spandex. For rounds played in the heat, Bald Head Blues has utilized “Comfort Dry.” This polyester/spandex blend is moisture wicking, lightweight and has a 4-way stretch for ultimate performance. The new Albatross Polo is also treated with a UPF 50+ for UV protection.
These high-performance technologies and fabrics are worn by Bald Head Blues brand ambassadors and PGA TOUR Professionals Joel Dahmen and Martin Piller. They both face extreme weather changes on the tour and their Bald Head Blues polos keep them comfortable and ready to compete.
Bald Head Blues transports you to a place you want to be – even if you aren’t there. Maybe it’s to the golf course, the tennis courts or on the beach. For the Pope Family, its Bald Head Island. Where do you want to go?
LISBON, Portugal, May 13, 2019: Hole19, a company that produces a multi-functional golf app with over 1.6M registered users, announces innovative features available on the new version of their standalone app – the Hole19 Golf GPS for Smartwatch.
Authentication, Scoring and Wearable Maps are the new features that will be initially exclusive to Casio Pro Trek Smartwatches (WSD-F30 and WSD-F20 series) and will make use of their advanced technology and exceptional design to provide golfers with the option to play a golf round without the need for their smartphone.
The recently released Casio Pro Trek WSD-F30, in particular, boasts an exceptional level of comfort along with an innovative ‘Extend Mode’ which increases intervals between charging by optimizing power consumption.
The new features on Casio Smartwatches will come in handy to all wearable enthusiasts, in addition to the already existing and useful features initially provided when Hole19 first launched this app back at the beginning of 2017 for WearOS users: Course Download, GPS Distances, and Auto-change Hole. Once the golfers have logged in and downloaded their course maps, they will be able to play offline without the need for mobile data.
Authentication is a one-time-only process and completed by connecting to a Hole19 account via a smartphone with this status remaining until otherwise changed by the golfer.
After authentication, the golfer can leave their smartphone in their golf bag and play a round using the newly introduced Scoring Mode, allowing them to play in either Stableford or Strokeplay formats while logging all strokes including putts, sand shots, penalties and fairways hit.
Also when using the new Hole19 Golf GPS for Smartwatch, authenticated golfers can access Wearable Maps. When the maps have been previously located and downloaded they will be accessible offline when on the golf course, and it will be possible to switch effortlessly between aerial or distance views in-round. If using the new Casio Pro Trek WSD-F30, the maps will be brought to life using the smart watch’s enhanced dual-layer monochrome and colour display.
Hole19 CEO Anthony Douglas said, “We are extremely excited to be continuing our partnership with Casio and to be delivering the new and improved Hole19 Golf GPS for Smartwatch which gives wearable enthusiasts the ability to play a round of golf without needing to reach for their smartphone.”
The standalone Hole19 Golf GPS for Smartwatch app is available on Play Store for a one-off payment of €4.99.
Hole19 is a company that provides a mobile & wearable platform for golfers to discover & book their golf, plan & track their rounds on the course, as well as a social platform to connect with other golfers and golf courses. Over 1.6M golfers are registered on Hole19 across 201 countries. The free app boasts over 42,000 mapped courses to help golfers hit their next shot with confidence.
