Golfweek – the most authentic, authoritative and independent voice in golf – has released its second-annual women’s issue. “Golfweek for Her 2011,” a special edition, provides a comprehensive look inside the exciting world of women’s golf while also shining a spotlight on talented females who play the game with passion and precision. Complementing the annual issue, Golfweek also has launched a dedicated online landing page (Golfweek.com/ForHer), complete with photos and commentary not found in the magazine.
“I can confidently say nobody in the industry covers the women’s game with as much depth as we do at Golfweek, and we do it because we love to celebrate women’s golf,” said Golfweek Editor Jeff Babineau. “Whether it’s LPGA events, women’s major championships or significant college or amateur events, we’re there, and we cover the competition with a passion. We’re very excited about the newest Golfweek for Her issue and believe our readers will enjoy it, too, because of the terrific writing and photography that they simply won’t find elsewhere.”
Created with its engaged audience of avid women golfers in mind, the Golfweek for Her 2011 issue not only features Golfweek’s popular mainstays – including the magazine’s edgy Forecaddie section – but also presents comprehensive guides and pictorials, covering everything from equipment fitting to fashion to fitness. Golfweek for Her 2011 also offers in-depth interviews and reports on some of the biggest names in women’s golf, including:
• U.S. Women’s Open champion Paula Creamer spreading her wings with her newfound independence
• Japan’s Ai Miyazato, who won five times on the LPGA in 2010, setting her sights on reclaiming the World No. 1 position
• Nike Golf President Cindy Davis hitting the Oregon trails with Golfweek’s Gene Yasuda to provide a glimpse of what it’s like to live in her shoes
• Morgan Pressel, the face of Polo on the LPGA, giving readers a look at her fully stocked closet inside her new home in Boca Raton, Fla.
Also in this issue, Golfweek delivers a look at a quartet of Spanish stars who are making an instant impact on the LPGA, as well as rookies to watch in 2011.
