The LPGA Tour #DriveOn Campaign

Two days ago the LPGA is unveiling its new brand positioning that embraces its history and pushes toward the future with two simple words: Drive On. I like the promotional video and as a proud father of an awesome daughter, I fully support their approach.

My daughter participated (and still does) in many sports. She is a smart, gifted, driven person who can accomplish anything. I wish more messages like #DriveOn were available when she was growing up. Programs like what the LPGA will empower other young ladies to be successful and this is a good thing.

I realize that this is a new branding approach for the LPGA, but I think it is a good one for them and for golf. If we want to grow this beloved game, then approaches like #DriveOn need to surface and provide a positive view to success. Thanks to the LPGA for taking this strong approach to empowering women to succeed.

I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!

This may seem like an insurmountable lead by Nelly Korda, but if there is one thing we have learned over the years, is that no lead is secure; just ask Greg Norman. Continue reading

Prediction for KPMG Women’s PGA Championship

This weekend is the second major on the LPGA. Last year’s winner, Brooke Henderson, will be teeing it up at 0840 hrs. After winning just two weeks ago, Brooke is poised to repeat as champion.

“In 2016, Brooke Henderson began her week at the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship with a hole-in-one that won her a new car. She ended it with an even bigger keepsake – her first major championship, won in a battle against another of the LPGA Tour’s youngest stars, Lydia Ko. Henderson’s clinched the second victory of her career on the first extra hole at Sahalee Country Club.”  Continue reading
