Savvy Girl Golf Reading the Green in Style
Rochester Business Journal, May 29, 2015 —Diane McCue always had a hard time finding a golf purse to fit all her needs.
When McCue, 59, a former Eastman Kodak Co. vice president, was looking for something to do after retirement, she decided to turn the golf-purse difficulties into a second career.
Working with her sister, Deb Story, 60, McCue came up with the idea for Savvy Girl Golf LLC, a line of fashionable and organized golf accessory bags. McCue, the Fairport company’s CEO, says her retirement was the perfect time to start a company.
“Because we were retired and didn’t need this to make a living, we had the chance to do it right,” she says.
Doing it right meant many brainstorming sessions around her dining room table and a series of prototypes until the bags were just right. McCue and Story conducted competitive analysis at the PGA Golf show in Orlando and in visits to golf pro shops and retail outlets.
