Golf For Beginners…Medal Winner!…It’s the book’s second award!…Gary Woodland and Barney Beard, Winners!!!…Barney Beard Golf

‘Golf For Beginners’ Wins It’s Second Award!

Gary Woodland won the United States Open at Pebble Beach and I won the bronze medal with the eLit award for excellence in publishing. Gary and I did it, didn’t we?

Who would have thought? Earlier this year I learned that my new book, Golf for Beginners, had won a medal in the FAPA Literary competition here in Florida. FAPA is the acronym for Florida Author’s and Publishers Association. I have to go to the awards banquet in August to find out if I won Gold, Siver or Bronze. I’m assured of one of the three.

Today in the mail I got the certificate for the bronze medal in the Sports category with eLit Awards. That’s a separate award from the FAPA organization. eLit is an on-line award for the digital publication of my book.

Well…who would have thought it? If you want to have a look at at the eLit website and the list of the winners you can Click Here and have a look and find my book and my name. Scroll down to the Sports/Fitness/Recreation section and there’s my name. It’s true. My name is there!

Who would have thought my book would win two awards?

Well, I guess I’ll have to get busy and finish the sequel to Golf for Beginners. I haven’t come up with a title for the next book yet. Have you got any ideas? It will be the book to help golfers who are no longer beginners to play the championship courses and break 100. That will be fun to write, don’t you think?

In any case, a big thank you to all my students who made themselves guinea pigs for my learning curve as a golf instructor.

Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Play Often, Have Fun, Respect the Game,

Barney Beard
