In many ways Suzy Whaley is just another Golf Professional. She struggles with many of the same challenges that PGA Professionals face every day. Parts of her story sound the same as many, many others. But on the other hand….Suzy is the head of the largest organization in sports, and not to mention, the first woman to ever do that. She holds one of the most powerful and influential positions in the game of golf. She’s a trail blazer. Not only has she played in LPGA tour events, but she played in a PGA Tour event. She’s probably done more media interviews than any PGA Professional in history.
In part one of our conversation, we tackle a couple of age old issues with PGA Professionals. Time management and work-life balance. If you’ve been following along, you’ve heard about these topics on this podcast before. Partly because these issues are nearly universal in our business. And because they’re probably not addressed with practical solutions often enough. So what do you do if you get 600 emails a day? How do you handle the stresses of raising a family and succeeding in this industry? Suzy shares her methods and what’s helped her over the course of her career along with plenty of other great insights.
