Stories about the women’s game are rarely told. That is why Global Golf Post is launching GGPWomen today.
Our mission here is simple: This new subscription service is intended to promote, support and celebrate the women’s game. We will tell the best stories about interesting female golfers. Some will play the game for a living, some will play at an elite amateur level, some will work in the golf industry writ large and others will be noteworthy for giving generously of their time, talent or treasure. All of these women will be the kind of people with whom you would enjoy a round of golf. They love this game as much as you do.
Three days per week – Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday – we will send you a piece of premium-quality journalism about the women’s game. To accomplish this mission, we have assembled an all-star cast of talented female journalists to supplement our GGP staff. They include:
Emilia Migliaccio, who stands No. 20 In the World Amateur Golf Ranking and is wrapping up her final year at Wake Forest as she aspires to become a golf journalist;
Lisa Mickey, a veteran golf journalist who has written for Golf Digest and The New York Times, among other publications;
Julie Williams, a talented journalist formerly with Golfweek who has covered the amateur game extensively for years;
Brynn Walker, an Epson Tour player who will author a series called “Brynn’s Journey: One woman’s quest to play on the LPGA Tour.”
Why should Global Golf Post take on this project? Our bona fides are legitimate. From the very beginning, GGP has paid close attention to the LPGA and to elite women’s amateur golf. Now we are going to broaden the lens from which we view the totality of the women’s game.
So, what is our ask? Twofold. We ask you to subscribe to support our brand of premium-quality golf journalism; I know we will delight you. Go to ggpwomen.com to get a free 14-day trial subscription.
Secondly, we ask you to tell your best golf pal about us. He or she will thank you for the tip.
Fairways and greens!
