Observing Tajma Brown on a golf course, you might think she’d grown up with the game. Whether she’s manning a busy tournament registration desk or updating a scoreboard with her distinctively delicate calligraphy, she looks quite at home on the links. Until a couple of years ago though, golf wasn’t even on her radar.
In fact, growing up in Wilmington, DE Tajma Brown was a voracious reader, and by the time she reached high school, a three-sport athlete. Golf, needless to say, was not one of the three.
Tajma’s sports were track & field, cheerleading, and basketball. When in her junior year, Tajma had the opportunity to become manager of the boy’s varsity and JV basketball teams. She took it, and that’s where her trajectory changed. She quickly realized that the management side of sports was where she wanted to be. So she started looking for schools that had great

The much anticipated early December
announcement pronouncement has come; Ultra Violet, a deep, blue-purple shade is Pantone’s Color of the Year 2018 .
Purple, it must be said, can be polarizing. Research from a myriad of market researchers and assorted color scientists (yes, color scientists are a thing) show that while men tend to dislike the hue, women have a clear propensity for purple. Hence we can assume there may be some disaccord along gender lines when it comes to Ultra Violet, however, early reaction has been surprisingly positive. It’s been referred to as counterculture… but also as regal… both in the same blurb. That might say something about its eventual universality.
In any case I can already testify to the fact that Ultra Violet lends itself very well to fairway fashion, and I look forward to seeing a lot Continue reading “Pantone Color Of The Year 2018 & Ultra Violet Golf Fashion”

It’s an iconic combination to be sure, with red representing hardiness and valor, while white evokes purity and innocence. Then there’s blue, for vigilance and justice.

So, heading into the Independence Day weekend, it’s a perfect time to show your colors on the golf course. With so many stellar designers doing golf apparel these days, the choices are endless. Happy 4th of July.
Spring is in the air and Mother’s Day is looming.
if you’ll be gifting a mom who plays golf, and want to offer her something more than the formulaic brunch and flowers, I’ve got a suggestion: consider crafting her a personalised beaded stroke counter. It’s handmade AND it pays tribute to the sport she loves… two major characteristics of a “thoughtful gift”.
The beauty part is that it’s fun and easy to put together.

It’s sure to please the golfing mom in your life… well… unless she’s the type who intentionally forgets her much maligned trips to the sand trap and multiple mis-hits. In that case she’ll hate it.
But assuming that’s not the type of golfer you’re gifting, this DYI Continue reading “This DIY Golf Gift Is Perfect For Mother’s Day… You Can Count On It”
