About the author:
Janelle Gluckman failed to learn to play golf twice. The first was as a child.
"I was the only egghead in a family of jocks. They all took to golf like ducks to water. I was more like a twenty-pound bar bell. I finally refused to participate in the 'family golf' thing."
Then she married a golf nut and tried again.
"I had $99 junk for clubs and became 'that woman golfer.' The one who takes a dozen shots to get to the green and hits five more around the green. Three years of 100% business travel saved me from golf."
But her husband really wanted to play and Janelle knew he wouldn't do it if it meant Saturdays of leaving her at home.
"I bought new clubs just so Howard would, but I knew I needed a different approach. Golf had to be fun. Through trial and error, I developed the system presented in GoodShot! Golf. Even while I was still a beginner, we played golf on great golf courses all over the country. Golf became our joint passion, so a vacation in Pebble Beach seemed like a desirable - if huge -- expenditure to both of us."
Now Janelle is a solid bogey golfer with a handicap index in the mid-teens. She decided to share want she had learned about learning to play golf with other women.
"Golf is a great sport for women. We just need to get over the hump of playing badly while learning. If a woman falls in love with playing golf, she'll master it. GoodShot! Golf is intended to help women by showing them how to play like accomplished golfers until they become one."
For those who are concerned, Janelle does have a day job as an Oracle software developer.
GoodShot! Golf (Black and White Interior)
The Frustration-Free Way for Women to Learn to Play Golf
GoodShot! Golf is the new way for women to learn to play golf. This is not a book of swing tips. It's an Eight-Step plan to learn to play golf, including an innovative method for women to play golf while they are still learning golf.
Targeted at women who would like to learn to play golf or have tried to learn in the past, GoodShot! Golf makes learning to play golf more fun. It provides a system for improving while playing golf using a special GoodShot! Golf scorecard.
Author, Janelle Gluckman, explains it this way:
"Golf is a wonderful sport. You get to enjoy beautiful golf courses in wonderful locations like Pebble Beach, Maui, Scottsdale and Boca Raton. My mother played golf into her late 80s, so golf is a sport that lasts a lifetime. It is both challenging and rewarding.
But golf can be frustrating to learn. That's because there's a lot to learn. There are 14 different clubs to use, and numerous shot types to master.
I've seen many women attempt to learn to play golf and fail. I failed twice myself. Perhaps you've already tried yourself. It gets frustrating to go out on the golf course and hit shot after shot, none of which go very far. And that's just to get near the green. Then there are pitch shots, sand shots, chipping and putting.
Women quit because this just isn't fun. But there is no reason not to have fun from the very first day you go out on the golf course. That's where GoodShot! Golf comes in.
GoodShot! Golf gives you a method for playing golf as soon as you've mastered just three golf shots. With some lessons from a PGA or LPGA professional, you can learn those three things pretty quickly.
Then you are out on the course having fun. You play the same shots an experienced golfer would play and you keep score of only your GoodShots!, not all the bad ones.
GoodShot! Golf also gives you a system for improving. As you master shots, you add new ones to your repertoire one-by-one. Your GoodShot! Golf scorecard will tell you when it's time to add something new.
Soon, you'll be thinking about playing regular golf, but by that time, you'll be ready."
