About the Author:

Cheryl Ladd is an accomplished television and film actress and a leading celebrity golfer with a fourteen handicap who has served as Buick’s golf ambassador at PGA Tour events. She lives with her husband in Santa Barbara.

From Publishers Weekly:

Through recollections of her many moments being the only woman in the male celebrity-dominated pro-am (professional-amateur) world, Ladd—clearly and proudly addressing women readers—explains how she turned being a "token chick" into an advantage, a learning experience and a cause for celebration. In 18 short chapters with titles like "BBB: Boys Behaving Badly," and "Golf + PMS = The Pre-Menstrual Swing," Ladd uses her experiences to provide valuable, practical technical tips ("So, how can we make our breasts work for us in our golf swing?") and does so without condescending to those who may not know a lot about the game. Sure, Ladd's Charlie's Angels fame has afforded her the opportunity to play with some big names, and she fills the book with tales of, conversations with, anecdotes about, photos of and tips from people she's played with and learned from including Arnold Palmer and Annika Sorenstam. But she doesn't shy away from describing some embarrassing moments, such as getting hit by golf balls and striking a bird on the course. Chapters end with a page of Token Tips, which are methodological yet still written in Ladd's easy, conversational language. Photos. Agent, Daniel Strone at Trident Media Group. (May)
