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. 

PLAY9

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.

Help Us Support Women In Golf

Being an entrepreneur is hard work, being a woman entrepreneur is really hard work, and being a woman entrepreneur in the golf industry is damn-near impossible. So whenever Ree and I meet other women in the golf world with businesses who share our enthusiasm for golf and women, and merging the two together, we do whatever we can to help and support their efforts. 

Women In Business

Did you know that female entrepreneurs start companies with 50% less capital than male entrepreneurs [source]? Yet, women entrepreneurs are more adept than their male counterparts at seeing gaps in the market and seizing the opportunity [source]. “WBEs [women business enterprises] are agile, innovative problem-solvers, meeting corporations’ needs quickly, adapting to marketplace changes and providing deep value and cost-effectiveness,” said Pamela Prince Eason, president and CEO of Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).

So as female entrepreneurs, who know just how hard it is to start a business, we think it’s important to support other women.

And we found a great company that we want to help out. We have a photo shoot coming up in early 2017, and be sure to check out the shoes on the model. Very chic! So let me introduce you to…

Golfing in the City

When I moved from Barbados, where I had a golf club membership and year-round access to some of the best courses in the Caribbean, to downtown Toronto, my golf game took a significant hit. Let’s just say, living in the city doesn’t make it easy to golf. 

I know I’m not the only one struggling to make it out of the city to hit a few balls, and today I’m thrilled to introduce you to Cassie. Cassie blogs over at Bandwagoner’s Guide to Golf. We met on #golfchat (an awesome group that meets every Tuesday on Twitter), and today she’s sharing her experience with the game after moving to Chicago. She’s also providing a few tips that will help anyone make the transition from suburban to urban golfer!
