Kate Rose had, admittedly, not thought much about women’s golf. She’s not a golfer herself. Her husband Justin is, of course, a world-class player. But the men’s and women’s golf worlds so rarely collide these days that Kate hadn’t given much thought to the landscape on the Ladies European Tour or LPGA.

But as the delightful Kate walked around Augusta National on a Friday in April, keeping somewhat of an eye on Justin as he contended in the 85th Masters, she couldn’t stop talking about women’s golf. And that was before a reporter approached her for an interview on the subject.

The Rose Ladies series got started last year after Kate read an article in the Telegraph about an event LET player Liz Young and Jason MacNiven, a head professional and custom-fitter at Brokenhurst Manor, decided to put together at the club for English professionals. Kate found the lack of opportunities available to women in the U.K. during the COVID-19 pandemic outrageous. Later that same evening, Rose’s management company called Young to offer support.

...

Justin is a global ambassador for Slync, a Dallas-based logistics software company. Slync co-founder and CEO Christopher Kirchner was eager to get behind the Rose Ladies Series this year because he’s been around strong women all his life, having been raised by a single mom who worked all day as a teacher and went to night school for a principal’s certificate.

“This isn’t an optics thing for us,” said Kirchner. “I just want to be able to help where I can.”
