The Sun Pink Stig Series is underway and it has been an extraordinary event so far. Although the weather conditions were a bit of a challenge on the first day, our phenomenal lady pro golf players did an exceptional job and are looking forward to the rest of the event.

We got some comments from a few of the players who are in the lead at the moment, and this is what they had to say about their first round and what they are anticipating going into their rounds.

Message from Srixon CEO to PinkStig Ladies

#journeytobetter #sunpinkstig #livingthedream

As women, we are faced with so many daily challenges, but always remember to wholeheartedly embrace them,  challenges are the key ingredients that makes us great.

The challenges are what provide us, as women, with our multi -faceted skill set, our ability to juggle, our creativity, our focus and so many more qualities.

The most important lesson that I have learnt as a woman in business is not to try and be a man or try to compete as a man, and rather to trust and embody all that there is in being a woman.

My message to you ladies today, as you begin another chapter on your journey to better, is a beautiful quote I read recently

“ To accomplish great things we must not only act, but also dream, Not only plan, but also BELIEVE”

Good luck to you all,

Louise Cooper

Managing Director Srixon…
