Confessions of a Golf Slut: A Memoir of Life, Love, and The Game

By Susan Fornoff

 

Trailblazing sports journalist Susan Fornoff breaks new ground with controversially titled memoir “Confessions of a Golf Slut”

 

OAKLAND, Calif. – Susan Fornoff broke locker room barriers as a sports journalist.  Now she is taking on golf’s conservative establishment with the title of her new book, “Confessions of a Golf Slut: A Memoir of Life, Love, and The Game.”

In “Confessions of a Golf Slut,” Fornoff shares the story of how golf became her warm blanket during heartbreaking losses of divorce and death, her compass for a hilarious journey through online dating, and her guiding light in the tunnel of a midlife career change. A “golf slut,” she says, will play anywhere, anytime, with anyone.

“I’m getting backlash from conservative golf types who find the term offensive,” Fornoff said. “But ‘golf slut’ has no more to do with sex than ‘golf widow’ relates to death. And, so what if it does? C’mon people, loosen up those ties!”

Fornoff’s engaging book is for women age 25 and up who either play golf or have an interest in the game and who enjoy memoirs such as “Julie and Julia” and “Eat, Pray, Love.”

 “Confessions of a Golf Slut” will be available in limited release on November 22 via Amazon.com and GottaGoGolf.com, and through all online bookstores and select golf shops beginning on December 2.

“What a fine and fancy ramble through the front nine, the back nine and all the bunkers of life that have to be managed in between.” – Lesley Visser, Hall of Fame Sportscaster

“With this fun and engaging read, Susan artistically paints the landscapes of some of the best golf courses in the country – and, through her real-life stories and adventurous spirit, transports the reader through the fairways of life with humor and humility, navigating work, on-line dating, marriage, and more. Can’t wait for the sequel!” – Debbie Waitkus, author of “Get Your Golf On!”
