Patricia Hannigan is the Golf Girl. Her blog, "Golf Girl's Diary," was one of the first independent golf blogs edited by a woman and is now among the most popular golf blogs on the Internet. She has written for a number of golf lifestyle and travel publications and has appeared on Inside Edition and Good Morning America. In the wake of the Tiger Woods scandal Patricia has become a go-to voice for the female perspective on gender issues in golf.

Her company "Golf Girl Media," counts top professional golfers, golf courses and golf apparel designers as clients, and supports a number of charitable causes connected to golf. The Golf Girl lives in Danbury, CT.
