I Applaud You: Patricia Hannigan

This post is to send out a HUGE thank you to Patricia Hannigan.

Who is Patricia Hannigan and why am I applauding her?  Patricia is the founder of Golf Girl Media and on her diary ran a simple little competition to name an unusual looking object.

I correctly guessed that this item was in fact an electric cigarette lighter. (circa 1920.)

In announcing that I had correctly guessed Patricia was kind enough to include a profile of my website with links and a little write up.  Because of this I have had numerous hits on my website in the past 24 hours.

Why is this important to me?  Simply, I want to help golfers “Live to Play Better Golf”.  Getting people to my site to view free content which I have added and will continue to add, is hopefully of assistance to those who view the video’s and read the articles.

It is true that, I earn my income from teaching people to enjoy this game more, by giving lessons and coaching them on the golf technique and how to reduce the amount of shots taken during a round of golf.  My reward isn’t accepting payment for doing the job I love… I still have to pay bills and put food on the table but who finds that rewarding, really?  My reward is knowing when I have helped someone achieve something they have previously not been able too, or seeing a light bulb moment when something just clicks.  When someone says “Thank you” for what I have given them and the knowledge they can take away and put into practice.

I am passionate about golf and coaching golf.  Patricia shows she is passionate about writing and bringing her perspective of the game to all those willing to listen and those interested in what she has to say.  I applaud her.  I only wish my writing skills were close to hers.

I didn’t feel simply saying thank you was enough… Today, in fading light, I put the video camera on the tripod and filmed a little golf tip for Patricia and her followers on Golf Girl Media and her blog.

Patricia, please know that I am thankful for the time you took to do something which exposes my dream of helping people overcome the frustration which this game can cause some people.  I do really appreciate it and I have bookmarked your site and will continue to read your blog with interest and encourage everyone to at least check it out.

    Thanks for the kind words Steve. I love being connected with Piranha Golf and look forward to whatever the future may hold for our relationship.

  2. Well done to David Williams, a guy we are delighted to have as part of Team Piranha. It is a sad reflection of modern times that a simple “thank you” like yours stands out like a beacon (perhaps even an upper BEACONsfield…lol). I feel a very strong sense that Arizona may well be calling you mate and what a delightful place it is. Well done to you too Patricia. Your social media interactions are always positive, informative and lots of good fun!
