Sunny Hale: Let's Talk About Your Handicap
Let's talk About Your Handicap is volume #2 in the Let’s Talk Polo book series, by Sunny Hale. Do you have unanswered questions about your current Polo Handicap and how you can improve it? Are you wasting lots of time and money working on the wrong stuff and as a result has kept you stuck at the same Handicap for years? In this book, Polo Legend Sunny Hale provides a very straight forward and clear explanation of the key ingredients that make up a polo player's Handicap and a 7 Step Plan plan of action on how to improve them. These are the actual personal concepts and techniques, that helped Sunny become a living legend in the sport of polo and attain the highest Handicap ever given to a woman in the history of Polo. She earned this Handicap while playing as a professional in High Goal Polo for some of the greatest players of all time.
What sets Sunny Hale apart from the pack is her achievements at the top of what has traditionally been a male dominated sport. Hale was hired as a professional to compete on polo teams for over 20 seasons alongside some of the greatest male players of all time. Her most famous victory in Polo is the day she became the first woman in history to win the US Open Polo Championships, American Polo's most coveted trophy and professional title.
Since that historic win, a movement has ignited in polo around the world for women. She was hired by the Outback Steakhouse Polo Team at the request of the world's #1 player of all time Adolfo Cambiaso. This would be the equivalent of a woman being hired to play in the NBA, World Series or the Superbowl as a starter among the men and winning the championships. With no template to follow she not only achieved her personal dream, in what has been called the second most dangerous sport only to auto racing, but she amassed one of the most impressive winning records and literally changed history forever in the process. The New York Times called Sunny "the most famous female polo player in the world". ESPNW compares her accomplishment as "some say she's pulled off the equivalent of being the first woman to earn a World Series Ring."
Sunny Hale is a 2012 National Cowgirl Hall of Fame inductee.See more about Sunny Hale.
