One take at a time

About me

I am Shafaque Taha, a senior golf writer at EssentiallySports, and here I am living my dream as a storyteller. Combining the knowledge from my master's degree in English literature, which was driven purely out of my passion for reading and writing, with my interest in the serendipity that I believe golf brings, I look to bring words to life for readers with my niche golf coverage. My love for the sport stems from the calming greens and the rush of adrenaline one feels when on them, and I especially enjoy watching LPGA Tour professionals in action. Of the over 500 pieces I've written, my absolute favorite is by far: 15 Years After His Triumph, PGA Tour Pro Makes a ?Difficult? Confession About Tiger Woods, which garnered massive attention from the golf world. It is undoubtedly one of my most beautiful pieces of writing, and that means a lot considering how I swear by Jane Austen, thanks to my immense passion for ?classics?!
