    Teeing Up for Success to be released in January 2014

    The EWGA Foundation’s
    2014 fundraising efforts include the release of a new book, "Teeing up for Success" - a compilation of stories of insight and inspiration from extraordinary women on how they have used the game of golf to achieve their goals. The book offers over 30 compelling stories of how golf can make a difference in one's life.  From Alice Dye's "Golf:  A Game for a Lifetime, a Lifetime about the Game" to Debbie Waitkus' "Turning Golf into Gold," these stories share their most intimate recollections of how the game has contributed positively to their lives and careers. As Golf Digest editor, Stina Sternberg notes in the foreword of the book, "The EWGA has blown the lid off a well-kept secret.  It's a secret that women have tried to keep close to the vest for decades - one that has given us a leg up with our bosses and clients, put us on the fast track at work and made us closer to our families.  It's a simple secret, really; the power of golf."

    Golf has been an influential tool for many of the book's authors.  From women like Judy Rankin who started playing in their early years to women like B. Camille Williams who took up the game later in life, golf has presented them with countless opportunities.  It has been a door opener in their careers, as well as their personal lives.  They have had the chance to establish many relationships not only personally, but professionally.  Golf has given them equality, credibility, and has opened the lines of communication, allowing for easy conversation and providing a great setting for relaxation and fun.

    Delve into these chapters and enjoy these women's stories of wisdom, courage, faith and success.  Prepare to be inspired by this beautiful compilation woven together by the love of golf.  Published by the EWGA Foundation, the charitable arm of EWGA, "Teeing Up for Success" is set for release in January 2014.  Additional details to be posted soon.
