Industry Around the Globe Unites in Support of Women’s Golf Day

June 4th 2019 will be the largest ever single-day celebration of women’s golf with venues from every corner of the globe joining forces to promote the sport. With a growing profile and impressive roll call of supporters, it’s hard to imagine that a little over four years ago Women’s Golf Day was simply a pipe dream for founder Elisa Gaudet. Her commitment has galvanized the industry, bringing together a phenomenal number of industry influencers from around the world.

Over the past three years, WGD events have been held at over 900 venues in 52 countries and have delivered golf experiences to more than 50,000 women and girls. This year what is remarkable is the growth of the campaign in countries who have been involved since year one. In Nigeria thanks to development work with the Nigerian Golf Federation a record 14 venues are already signed up to run their 4-hour experiences and in the Czech Republic, there are an incredible 35 participating venues all preparing to welcome women and girls through their doors.

As the campaign has grown from strength to strength, its impact has become apparent beyond Women’s Golf Day itself as Elisa explains, “What we are beginning to see is a deep-rooted change from the golf club level through to national organizations. I set out on this journey because I wanted more women to try the sport that has brought so much joy to my life. I am really proud to have inspired others to run their own campaigns because we have a singular aim, which is of paramount importance to the future of golf.”

8 new countries signed up in 2018, including Hong Kong which makes an impressive return in 2018 with more venues signing up. Vietnam and Lithuania are amongst the newcomers for 2019, demonstrating the global reach of the campaign. Mike Hendrix, Vice President GolfNow Business Solutions, who have been ardent supporters of WGD year on year isn’t surprised by the continued growth as he explains, “Our Business Services team has been speaking with hundreds of golf courses in North America about hosting their own event on June 4th and the response has been great. We’ve seen golfers through social media asking if their local course will be hosting an event and we’ve seen golf instructors step up and create and support events. Our golf course partners love this initiative and we salute Elisa’s passion and drive.

This year’s WGD campaign is extremely personal for Elisa who has partnered with Play for P.I.N.K.®, a non-profit organization that donates 100% of its proceeds to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation®. She concludes, “This is a fantastic charity which is very close to my heart. We hope that this new partnership will help raise awareness and much-needed funds for breast cancer research through the power of golf.”

2019 SET TO BE A GREAT YEAR FOR WOMEN’S GOLF

With three of the most significant tournaments at the top level of women’s golf taking part this week, women’s golf is getting a little more attention than usual, giving sports fans all over the world a variety of options to engage with.

With the first women’s Major of the year, the ANA Inspiration; the Jordan Mixed Open where two men’s Tours and the Ladies European Tour come together to compete on the same course for the same prize fund; and the debut for the Augusta National Women’s Amateur, all swinging into action this weekend, many people will get their first exposure to the game, and that is something that Elisa Gaudet, founder of Women’s Golf Day (WGD), knows can be a pivotal moment in recruiting the next generation of golfers.

Julia Duresky/CAPEHART

“Through our work with Women’s Golf Day we know that if you give women and girls a great first experience of the game then they are likely to stay,” commented Gaudet. “I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a buzz around the women’s game in the 19 years I’ve been in the industry as I have in the weeks leading up to these three groundbreaking tournaments. I hope that by drawing some of the focus of the world’s media to these incredible athletes playing at the top level, they can inspire women and girls all over the world to pick up a club for the first time.”

If, as Gaudet suggests, the effect of these three tournaments coming together in one week is to expose a new audience to the women’s game and kindle an interest in participation, then the return of Women’s Golf Day on June 4th 2019 will provide the perfect opportunity for women and girls all over the world to take the next step, Gaudet continues.

“I love the ‘Think Globally – Act Locally’ campaign and believe that by having better access and exposure to the game, the more women and girls will want to take part. We’re obviously on a very different level to the women playing on Tour, but through WGD we’ve seen that when people have easy access to golf, have a fun first experience and then have a clear path into the game, they soon become the next generation of golfers. The success of WGD has been through industry collaboration and vision of governing bodies, industry leaders, golf clubs and charities coming together to celebrate new and existing women golfers and demonstrate they are important and welcome.”

In the past three years, WGD events have been held at over 900 venues in 52 countries and have delivered a golf experience to over 50,000 women and girls. This year’s event will be held on June 4th and will once again be a celebration of women and girls learning golf skills that last a lifetime and of being part of a larger global community. WGD has partnered with PLAY for P.I.N.K – BCRF (Breast Cancer Research Foundation) an important charity partner given breast cancer affects so many women around the world. We encourage the Women’s Golf Day events to have a charity component and raise awareness and funds for breast cancer and where possible work with Play for P.I.N.K – BCRF enabling them to continue their important work funding the world’s top researchers.

Motherputter – “The New Face of Ladies Golf Wear”

When you hear “Motherputter” what do you think of? It is probably something close to
what I thought of the first time I heard it. But it is quite the opposite.

motherputter-logo-300

Motherputter is actually a woman’s golf apparel company. Why a name like “Motherputter”, you ask? The answer is Simple. Te name stems from a mother with a love for golf. There are no words that can describe it when you love something. It was very much like this with Motherputter. There was an issue for Kim Tuttle. There were no clothes that were liked and unique to Kim. So, Ms. Tuttle decided to make her own line and make it unique to her and unique it is.

Kim Tuttle the “Chief Chick of Fashion” is very independent with a style all her own.
She found a passion for fashion which led her to a degree from Texas Tech University
in Fashion Merchandising. She followed many paths which eventually led her to New
York City. After taking a 20-year hiatus from the fashion industry to venture into politics she returned to the fashion industry. Getting back to the fashion industry she became obsessed with the game of golf.

motherp1

I first heard of Motherputter on the 2019 PGA Show website and I won’t lie. The name is what caught my attention. Clothing is like a nice bottle of wine for me, a unique name and you have my attention. In my opinion,  I found Motherputter to be the “wine” of the PGA Show. There were so many other great lines but Motherputter just called to me.

Their designs were unique and so different. They had everything from a bomber jacket
to skorts to dresses. The way the colors of the line mixed it got my attention. There
was a little flash of lime green on that black skirt or there was a nice red collar on the
pink shirt… I know pink and red clashes right? Wrong! Motherputter made it work. She
said she liked the red and pink so why not mix them together. It looked great and it
worked so well together.

motherp3

Kim always somehow has a way to incorporate her Motherputter logo put into the clothing and she makes it work. There was a lot of black and white in her line because it is a girl’s best friend right? Once again you would be wrong she made so many designs work with silvers. She made so many successful designs with florals patterns too. The thing that I love the most about the Motherputter line is the ease of how you can go from the course to a night out on the town.

The dresses are very elegant looking and they are put together nicely. Most of her
clothing has mesh to allow your body to breathe. They all mix so well. You can throw
that Silver quilt type skirt with that dressy floral shirt and then top it off with the bomber jacket and a nice pair of shoes. Nobody would know that you just got off the golf course.
Kim made them very unique to the “average woman”. The clothing is something you
would not expect to see anywhere let alone on a golf course. There was a lot of mesh put
into the lines and I really like the mesh on the clothing too. She put mesh in the sleeves
or on the jacket. Some of the jackets were reversible so you could get 2 looks with 1
a piece of clothing.

motherp2

Motherputter carries clothing up to an XL which makes me interested even more. As a larger woman, it is hard to find nice clothing that can fit me. Due to this fact that they carry a larger size it makes me want to try their stuff even more. One day, I hope to get my hands on some of their clothing and if I do I will tell you exactly how I feel about them.

In the meantime, I will stick to what I know about them. They have gorgeous clothing in a large variety of sizes and they could really take the women’s golf apparel game by storm. Keep it up Motherputter I look forward to seeing what you come up with next.

Until The Next Tee!!
