First impressions are everything. On average it takes anywhere from seven seconds to five minutes to form a first impression and a big part of that is the initial handshake. So, with that in mind, the attendees of Women in Golf introduced themselves using their best handshakes. Not too firm, not a dead fish, just right. (Photo: Golfdom Staff)

The opening reception for Women in Golf gave attendees a chance to relax and get to know one another. A “Find Your Kind” activity divided attendees into groups and had them work to answer the question “Why is an event like Women in Golf important?” Want to know their answers?

On the last day of the event, attendees participated in an activity to find out their working styles and how they tend to act in certain situations. The purpose was to help them learn how to respond when challenges arise during the course of their careers. (Photo: Golfdom Staff)
