    I have no idea why, but yesterday a copy of the last issue of GFW showed up in my mailbox (maybe they had extras laying around and somehow I got on a list).

    Anyway, I now understand why so many of the ladies were annoyed with the issue. Very little merit. I understand that it was "The Style Issue", but even the article on clothing, etc. were weak. Incredibly overpriced stuff was featured, when clothing was even featured. Do women really want to read articles about the designers instead of the clothes they design.

    I thought Ashley Mayo did a pretty decent job with the GPS article though. It was very refreshing to read a review in a golf magazine that actually criticized a product (i.e., "The units I tried were defective and I never got an accurate reading.")

    I also liked a couple of the "tips" articles (why is it that the GFW tips are so much better than the ones from the "men's" magazines), and Stina's rants and raves were hilarious. I get the feeling Stina is very high manitenance. But damn, she might be worth it.

    Anyway, a few good pages were not enough to save the issue. But it's still a shame the magazine folded. Based on th couple of issues I have read, I would honestly think about subscribing if it somehow survives.

    Oh Harry, you'd be fetching in that cover dress! And Stina's always been a hoot.

    A "Style" Section.

    Don't some women find that somewhat offensive? Go buy a Vogue or something, jeez.

    Oh, and nothing like seeing someone in expensive clothing all fancy shmancy and high on themselves, and then beating them in my KoRn shirt and blue jeans!

    Nah. They can be golfers and women at the same time. The big criticism was that GFW started focusing on ridiculously expensive clothes.

    I'll admit that, while I'm no clotheshorse or metrosexual, my favorite golf mag is GolfPunk. Style, chicks, and golf. Hell yeah!

    Oh, I never said she didn't have nice hooters. She does!

    I just think she'd be VERY high maintenance.

    Oh Cripes, Harry. The woman just had a baby. That explains that. And those women in Golf Punk aren't even attractive. Besides, the repeat the same photos over, only with different names. I guess they figure their readership (I use that term loosely) doesn't notice?

    That clip of Stina is pre-preggers.

    And sorry C f/ C, but she:

    Well, we always knew what your priorities were. But how much does the outfit cost? And let's not even get into what's wrong with her grip (tossing you a softball).:)

    Man, Stina is nice, very nice!

    I'd like her to spank me...at golf...and other things!

    Stina's rants have always been a favorite part of the magazine for me. but I really didn't like her hosting the Big Break. I always agree with her rants though!:hunter:

    I agree with you Harry that the tips are always good. Much better than the guy's mags.

    What I want to know, is when are we getting the "replacement" choice? Hopefully we don't just lose our money.

    Soxy!

    Nice to see you here again!

    No way Conde Nast would just steal subscriber's money. But they should have contacted you by now. You should email GFW (maybe someone is still monitoring their email) or Conde Nast directly.

    Wow, so I went to the GFW website and it redirects to a golf digest page that says this: (notice the editor)

    it looks interesting, I will have to investigate further...

    Interesting.

    Why is it that the companies with enough money to spend on a good forum always have the crappiest forum software? It never works right, never has any worthwhile features, and always looks like poo.

    Poo?

    Hope it was fun, Sox. I got my GFW free with the EWGA membership, so I don't really care. Besides, I'm playing in a Rally for the Cure event in a couple of weeks that should have included a GFW subscription. Instead, we get to choose another Conde Nast magazine. There isn't even one I want I don't already get. Decided my husband could have Gourmet or Bon Appetit or whatever food one there is.

    I had already used "crap" in the preceding paragraph, but still wanted to use a fecal reference without escalating to "shit."

    In retrospect, "dung" would have been both funnier and more manly.

    Poo is quite possibly the best word in the English language.
