Belmont alumna's golf apparel venture takes off

Over at our sister blog Southern/alpha, Ayumi Fukuda Bennett has the story on the promising start of Sydney Elizabeth, a women's golf apparel company launched last year by Belmont then-student Sydney Hudson. Since launching formally online, the business has run through its inventory twice and Hudson now is working on custom gear for eight high school and college teams.

Though the business is still very young, Hudson’s next big goal is to be a vendor at the PGA Merchandise Show within the next year. And as she continues to grow her online traffic and physical presence in more stores, her golf apparel has extended to all customers who seek trendy, functional attire.

“A lot of girls buy them to wear with a t-shirt and sandals to go shopping or lunch with their friends!” said Hudson. “It has taken off faster than I ever imagined and I feel so blessed to get to wake up every morning and do what I love. I have God, my family, and friends to thank for that.”

Blind golfer scores fourth national title

Nashville's David Meador scored his fourth national title from the United States Blind Golf Association this weekend in Oregon City, Ore..

From Channel 5:

Meador plays with the help of his coach of 15 years, Everett Davis.  Davis ensures Meador is in the correct position, has the right club, and knows how hard to swing.

"I don't tell him how to play, he knows how to play," said Davis.  " I just serve as his eyes, and guide him around the course."

The two have developed an efficient system that works.

"I can tell instantly whether I hit the ball well and Everett explains if it went a little left," said Meador.  "Communication is key."
