Everyone is nervous on tournament day and it’s easy to become flustered when things aren’t going your way. Here are a few tips that might help you keep, or regain, your composure. ­ Bad lies. If it’s not possible to hit your ball in the direction of the hole, consider hitting it sideways, or even backwards, into the fairway where you will be in a better position for your next shot. ­ Unplayable lies. If you wind up in a place with no reasonable way to hit your ball, or you don’t feel confident about your ability to make good contact with the ball, consider declaring the ball unplayable and proceed under Rule...

From EWGA SMD Director of Membership, Evalyne Bryant-Ward: As we approach the golf season we want to equip you with some gentle reminders of golf etiquettes. Here are some more tidbits to remember as we quickly approach the golf season. "Before starting your round you are advised to 1) read the local rules on the score card and the notice board, 2) put an identification mark on your ball; many golfers play the same brand of ball and if you can't identify your ball, it is considered lost (Rules12-2 and 27-1) and 3) count your clubs; you are allowed a maximum of 14 clubs (Rules 4-4). Here are some general points taken from A Quick Guide to the Rules...

Just wanted to say mahalo nui loa (thank you very much) to the warm welcome from other EWGA chapters. Looks like we are going to have a lot of visitors! E komo mai (welcome)! We are excited about starting a chapter here where the golf is everywhere (over 75 courses), the weather is fabulous and the views are awe inspiring. There are plenty of wahine (women) golfers here and plenty of wahine business owners and executives and now they'll have an opportunity to combine those skills and make new connections. Much aloha to all of you!

With the complexity of work life, social media is frequently over looked as a communication tool. The integration of social tools into our EWGA communication strategies has become critical for nearly everyone and can yield tremendous and unexpected benefits. A blended scenario of traditional and unstructured approaches to membership communication can greatly affect the relevance, retention, and overall success or failure of our communication initiatives. With individual’s short attention spans and the number of mobile devices and video’s, communication between organizations will not be anything like the old single event PowerPoint presentations.

Insights and invitation from Evalyne Bryant-Ward, EWGA-SMD Membership Director: Often I encounter women in different walks of life. Because I am the membership chairman for the SMD EWGA, I invite them to join us. The most prevailing excuse given is "I don't know how to play." That is perhaps the worse ... reason to not play. Golf is like so many other things, you only get better with time. Take lessons and then hit the course with like minded individuals whose primary purpose is to promote you, not judge you. Join the EWGA Southern Maryland Chapter. We will help you have fun while you learn. To contact Evalyne: ebryantward@yahoo.com or access...

Both my mother and father are left-handed and so was I born left-handed. At a very young age they switched me because they thought being left handed would be a disadvantage. Desks would not fit, lunch table seating could be awkward and many other issues that they both experienced in their lifetimes would present disadvantages to me throughout my life. So I was switched from being left-handed to being right-handed. In grade school sports it was a great advantage to me. I was a switch hitter in softball/baseball, in basketball I could go to the hoop from either side and dribble both ways. If seated next to a lefty I can also dine lefty. I have not viewed this...

​ Last week we talked about the various types of Distance-Measuring Devices for use on the golf course. What happens if you don’t have a DMD and there isn’t a GPS on your cart? How do you know the distances? What do the measurements mean? Distance marker s are a series of disks placed in the fairways of golf courses. You will usually find these on par 4s and par 5s. Many courses offer m arkers from set distances on every hole - usually a marker at 100, 150 and 200 yards. When this practice first started, courses used a red marker for 100 yards, a white marker for 150 yards and a blue marker to indicate 200 yards. The distance is...

Aloha!

Aloha from the new EWGA Hawaii Chapter! We are excited to bring the EWGA to the islands where golf is happening 365 days a year. We've already heard from some EWGA members from other chapters and we'd like to say "E komo mai" (Welcome) to everyone from the EWGA who will visit us here. The entrepreneurial spirit is strong here and the number and variety of fascinating, fabulous and powerful women (and men, even bold enough to join our Board!) here is astounding. I'm very grateful to know so many of them through golf and hope I can give something back to the local community by connecting them to the opportunities afforded by the EWGA....

Spring and summer weather conditions are often perfect for quick thunderstorms to develop. The National Lightning Safety Institute offers the following information: Lightning is arbitrary, random and unpredictable. Five percent of annual United States lightning deaths and injuries happen on golf courses. Everyone associated with the game should participate in lightning safety. The United States Golf Association (USGA) makes available warning posters and stickers to inform players about lightning safety tips. As a golfer, you should know that the USGA Rules of Golf (Rule 6-8) allow players to discontinue play if they believe there is a danger...

Hello all EWGA members: I am a member of the Fox Cities/Green Bay WI Chapter and will be trying to check off one of my bucket list items. I would like to buy 2 tickets to the Masters Tuesday, April 8, 2014, practice round . Does anyone have advice to share on where to purchase tickets...such as honest sites to watch or purchase from as well as sites which may not be reputable? Or is it okay to wait until you get to Augusta to purchase? Any advice would be helpful/most appreciated. Thanks for reading and sharing information.

Match Play is one of the oldest forms of competition in golf. It pits players one against another, rather than one against the field as in stroke play. Opponents compete to win individual holes, and the player(s) who wins the most holes wins the match. Match play can be played by two individuals, one on one, and that is known as Singles Match Play. Or teams of two players can square off, with Foursomes and Fourball the most common formats for team play. As an EWGA Portland member you have several great opportunities to participate in these games. Portland Chapter has a match play ladder league where we play Singles (one player against another)...

Golf carts are a source of revenue for golf courses, so in most instances when you play in a tournament you will be riding in a golf cart. If you are a new golfer, you may feel more comfortable having a more experienced golfer drive the cart. The MOST IMPORTANT thing is to make sure your golf bag is fastened securely to the cart. You don’t want it to fall off – and risk being embarrassed. When taking a golf cart, the golf staff will let you know if it is “Cart Path Only” (no carts allowed on the course at any time - mainly due to wet fairway conditions). If the conditions require “Cart Path Only,” take several clubs (plus an extra ball in case yours...
