Brynn Walker has balanced her post-college career doing two things she loves – playing golf and writing. Spending at least 22 weeks on the road and grinding sunup to sundown on the golf course proves to be tiring for even the best of athletes. However, Walker still finds time to satisfy her other passion.
Her devotion to storytelling started at the University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill when she took a class called “Branding of Me,” a course that required the then-senior to create a website and post a blog twice a week. Inspired by Epson Tour alumna Lorena Ochoa’s book Dream Big, Walker started blogging about her golf course journey. After graduating and starting her professional golf career, she continued posting to her website, which landed her a spotlight on lpga.com. The rest is history.
“It’s been fun,” said Walker. “It’s been a really good outlet. We spend so much time on the golf course or in hotel rooms, so it’s nice to have something to do besides hitting that little white ball.”
Walker tries to include a life lesson in her pieces, sometimes incorporating stories and lessons she’s learned from other athletes and caddies. The Epson Tour veteran has shared just under 30 stories on the tour’s website and was most recently approached by Jim Nugent, founder and publisher of Global Golf Post, with an opportunity to expand her audience.
Similar to her blog, Walker will continue to share her journey in golf, but now readers can find her pieces in the Global Golf Post. New in 2023 is an addition to the GGP+ subscription site, a three-time per week original, premium quality golf journalism piece called GGPWomen.
“What I’m most excited for is to see it grow and gain traction and see people really enjoy stories specifically about women in the game,” said Walker. “I think that’s a huge aspect of the game that doesn’t get a lot of light all the time, so I’m just happy to be a small part of that.”
According to the Global Golf Post, GGPWomen is intended to promote, support, and celebrate the women’s game. A group of talented women, including Walker, will tell insightful stories, including many perspectives of the game.
“There are so many stories in golf that are really neat, and that’s the cool thing about this game,” said Walker. “You can play it for so long that you could be 70 and have a story be told about what you’re doing in the game still.”
