Executive Women's Golf Association publishes Teeing Up for Success

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. -- The Executive Women's Golf Association 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.

For the first time ever, the EWGA has compiled stories of insight and inspiration from extraordinary women on how they have used the game of golf to achieve their goals in their new book, Teeing Up for Success. The book offers over 30 compelling stories of how golf can make a difference in one's life. From EWGA's CEO Pam Swensen's "The Power of the Dimpled Ball" 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.

From women like Alice Dye who started playing in her early years to women like Hall of Fame golfer Judy Rankin, golf has presented them with countless opportunities. It has been a door opener in their careers as well as their personal lives. 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 a love for golf.

Published by the EWGA Foundation, the charitable arm of EWGA, Teeing Up for Success is now available on

The Kindle version of the book will be available around February 8th.
