A unique gallery

"If a person has any greatness in them, it comes to light , not in one flamboyant hour, but in the ledger of their daily work." Beryl Markham "West with the Night"The women Mona Vold writes about in her book, "Different Strokes", are national treasures worthy of any reader's time. And although the common thread of their journeys is the world of golf, the passion of their hearts, the clarity of their minds and the strength of their voices both dig deeply into and transcend that rich and humbling game.Without reservation, I highly recommend this wise and thoughtful book.

Inspirational reading for all golfers

Fun to hear what the other half has to say about the game. Great stories a good read for any golfer. Not to sure about the technical information. You might want to purchase GOLF IS A WOMAN'S GAME to set you straight on that. Both books really elevate women's golf.

Top Book on Women's Golf

This book has it all....contemporary history of women who love the game and made the LPGA what it is today, nostalgia, technique and lots of food for thought. Any woman who has a passion for golf must read this one. I seldom read a book more than once...I'm on my third time through in less than three months. Do yourself a favor by buying it and keeping it near your nightstand to refer to again and again.

This book made me want to take over the greens of life.

I am speechless, what can I say about these outstanding stories. When reading this book Mona helped me feel apart of each chapter, almost as if I where right there with her. The interveiws were increadable, no details were left out. I especially enjoed the Wiffi Smith segment.Different Strokes has something for everyone, woman, child, and even man. Simply inspiring.

Pithy advice from some of golf's greatest teachers

When you play for double or nothing, you read a lot of "golf tips" to cut just that one stroke. Good guy that I am, I bought my wife this book for Mother's Day -- and have since discovered I'm the person reading the book the most. Vold's book is easy to read, entertaining, and each of these women give advice any level player can use. As coaches of some of the greatest players in the game, these women come to life through the stories they reveal to Vold. More important to me are the ideas and techniques each shares. Sound advice from women who know the score.
