GOLF4HER EXCLUSIVE!! Each book is autographed by Shirley Spork. So, if you love golf and the women who pioneered the game, this book is a must read!
As one of the Ladies Professional Golf Association's (LPGA) “13 Founders," Shirley Spork teed off with the likes of Babe Zaharias, Patty Berg, and Marilynn Smith. She is an educational leader, recognized as golf's finest mentor teacher. From Green to Tee is a historically-accurate recounting of Shirley's story; a little red-haired girl from Michigan who started golfing with only a putter and grew up to be one of golf history's most beloved women.
Until now, only a few have heard Shirley's colorful stories of the the LPGA's early days, her travels to Europe as a young woman, the ladies of the Tour, and the celebrities she taught on the golf course (Bob Hope, Harpo Marks and others). As a bonus, Shirley shares "Sporkisms" - her signature golf instruction - that have inspired so many to be better golf teachers and players.
Also included are personal letters to Shirley from some of golf's greatest players, teachers and LPGA officials. You will enjoy her fishing stories, too, from catfish in the south to trout in Montana; even huge ocean-going marlin trophies! Shirley has done it all: collegiate champion, pro player, LPGA founder, golf pro, course manager, teacher mentor, celebrity coach and much more. This factual account of her memories is a must-read for everyone interested in golf and women's sports. An exceptional account of one woman's grit, tenacity and success in what was a male-dominated sports world.
All proceeds of this book benefit junior golf and women's college golf programs.
