Bump & Run | Play More Golf in Less Time

Play More Golf in Less Time

At Bump & Run, we’re passionate about getting more women to play more golf. We want every woman to experience this amazing sport and all of its benefits!

Over the years, we’ve noticed that many of our friends are hesitant to golf, because they find it very difficult to fit in a full round. In reality, spending 4-5 hours at the golf course just doesn’t work for most. 


We’re not the only ones to have noticed this. In 2014, the USGA introduced their PLAY9 program.  Instead of playing the usual 18-hole round, you can play just 9 holes and spend half the time at the course. PLAY9 is an initiative that we strongly agree with. It encourages shorter rounds of golf that fit within today’s busy world. As we like to say here at B&R, golf can’t always be a lifestyle. Sometimes you just need a lifestyle that includes golf.

This year, the USGA is improving on this already amazing program by designating the ninth day of each month (from May – October) as PLAY9 Day. All participating clubs are encouraged to support 9-hole play and all of the benefits that come with it.  

If you’re struggling to fit golf into your life, check out your local clubs and ask about the PLAY9 program. You can find participating clubs here, and special events here.

How to Improve Your Mental Golf Game

About a year ago I started working with a new golf instructor, Bill Longmuir. He’s a phenomenal teacher and has completely changed my swing and the way I play the game. When I played my first (and only to date) tournament last February, the one piece of advise he gave me was to trust my swing. When I get out there to play, do not think about the things he’s taught or the positions I’m supposed to be in – just go out, clear my mind as best I can, and swing.

Happy new year! I hope you said goodbye to 2016 and hello to 2017 in style! I always find the week between Christmas and the new year the biggest blur. I don’t know what day it is, where I’m supposed to be, or what I’m supposed to be doing. It’s almost blissful not having a schedule.

Yesterday was my 9th anniversary to the Mr! Three countries, six houses, two kids, about a hundred or so fish, and one crazy dog later, I am so very grateful. We never make a big deal about our anniversary, partly because of the business of the holidays and partly because I’m not entirely sentimental. However, this is the last year in single digits, so I’m thinking next year we’ll have to go big. Travel is a must. I’ve been coming up with ideas for quite awhile, but haven’t decided on the exact place yet. Let me know where you’ve spent your favorite anniversary, I could use a few more ideas;)

We are going out tomorrow night for New Year’s Eve, followed by a much needed recuperating brunch (sunglasses required) at a fantastic seaside cafe with friends; both a bit of a tradition for us.
