Mianne BaggerEmbrace diversity. Live life
Life is an amazing journey.
In 2004, the world came to know me as a budding golfer who challenged the sporting world with regard to human diversity in sport. As a transitioned woman I embarked on a journey of education and awareness, which resulted in having rules changed so I could compete on professional golf tours. After competing on a mini-tour in Sweden in 2004, I gained a tour card for the Ladies European Tour (LET) later in the year and competed in my first season on the LET in 2005. Rightly or wrongly, this paved the path for my ensuing touring career throughout Europe and Australia.
I would love to say that my touring career was a huge success with multiple tournament wins and a high world ranking, but…. that wasn’t the case. In some 11 years on tour, I had ‘0’ tournament wins and I’m sure my ‘world ranking’ was so far down this list that it didn’t even appear. Regardless of that, I view my own life as a success by the numerous personal achievements, the people I’ve met and the experiences I’ve had, and the gratitude I feel.
Success is what ever we define it be.
Today I enjoy what could be called a ‘minimalist nomadic life’ and enjoy the opportunities and experiences I continue to have, as well as the many varied amazing people I meet. Life continues to keep me on a high and I’m yet to work out if that’s actually a good thing or not?
For years I have thought about renewing my site to be more reflective of my current life, life-style and interests, partly as a personal resource, but also for anyone that may enjoy what I share.
Let’s see where this journey takes me….
