National Golf Month 🏌️‍♀️

August is #NationalGolfMonth! This month is all about encouraging others to get to the greens, whether they be new to the sport or returning golfers. Sharing personal stories is the best way to get others interested in an activity that the teller is passionate about. 

We reached out to our Bolder Brand Ambassador and World Class Professional Golfer Laurel Gill, who embraced the purpose of National Golf Month by sharing a bit of her expertise with us. Not only is she an avid golfer, she is a Lieutenant in the United States Navy, where she has accomplished much, such as creating the USNA Women’s Golf Team allowing for a Women’s Golf Patriot League. Some of her notable golf accomplishments include: 2019 Veteran Golfers Association National Champion, 2019 All-Navy Golf Champion, 2018 US Armed Forces Golf Champion and 2018 All-Navy Golf Champion. Here’s our discussion with Laurel:

Who inspired you to start golfing?

My parents both influenced me in starting to golf. They wanted me set up for success since it's a big sport in the "business world". Now it's a family sport and I love being able to golf with them. 

What is the best golf advice you have been given?

The best advice I've been given was to practice. The more you practice the luckier you get.

What advice would you give to beginners?

My advice for beginners is to not get frustrated. 

What should new golfers keep in mind as they are starting out?

Golf is a tough sport and takes a lot of time and practice. 

How have our Bolder skirts helped you?

Bolder skirts help me because they don't ride up, have fun patterns, look professional and are athletic. AND MADE IN THE USA!
