Inhaltsangabe: Mona Vold's Different Strokes gathers the untold stories of remarkable women golfers like Betty Jameson, Wiffi Smith, Polly Riley, and Kathy Whitwort. Their swings were every bit as perfect as Byron Nelson's, their battles to overcome injury were every bit as heroic as those of Ben Hogan, and their achievements were every bit as impressive as those of Bobby Jones, Jack Nicklaus, and other heroes of the men's game. Yet, until now, their words, wit, and wisdom have largely gone untold.

Different Strokes, a collection of 15 portraits of some of golf's wisest players, provides insights into the lives, achievements, frustrations, and joys of these legendary female athletes. Author Mona Vold reveals the little-known triumphs of these golfers - from their dramatic rises to success to their heroic battles to overcome adversity or injury - and, along the way, she delivers sound technical advice, fascinating anecdotes, and inspiring insights to appreciating the game. Different Strokes will be treasured by every woman who plays golf - from the weekend amateur to the pros on the LPGA tour.

Rezension: Given golf's sad tradition of relegating women to secondary status in the grill room and non-prime times off the tees, it's not surprising--though hardly defensible--that the wisdom of the game's best women teachers has largely been pushed into the rough as well. And this isn't just a loss for women golfers--it's every golfer's loss. Mona Vold, on her way to becoming a teaching pro herself, seeks to remedy this slight in Different Strokes. In the mold of Harvey Penick's inviting collections, this is a wonderful accumulation of tips, insights, and anecdotes from some of golf's best female instructors. Their names--Gloria Armstrong, Peggy Kirk Bell, Kathy Whitworth, Debbie Massey, and Betty Jameson--might not all sound familiar, but their knowledge and their ability to pass it on are breathtakingly real. This is much more than an instructional, though. Different Strokes is a plaintive and powerful journey--a journey made quite personal through Vold's own quest to meet and learn from these matriarchal masters--into one of the overlooked chambers of golf's heart. "I set out east, west, south and am greeted repeatedly with generosity and kindness," Wisconsinite Vold reports. "'You learn so much by being asked a question,' the great amateur and now 79-year-old pro Betty Jameson tells me. 'Everyone needs a listener--something more than a seashell. We aren't just Proettes. Our days, our swings, our games, our minds are full. We have things to tell....'" And there isn't a golfer alive who won't get something out of listening to them. --Jeff Silverman
