    Daisy Dagg
    Food Blogger
    It all started when All Black Israel Dagg bought his wife Daisy Dagg a set of golf clubs for Valentine's Day! She’d made it clear she was sick of Izzy playing golf on his days off. New clubs in hand, Daisy now really enjoys playing a few holes from time to time and hitting balls at the driving range when she’s not working on her The Rugby Pantry blog. Daisy is very excited about being a She Loves Golf ambassador, saying: “I believe that woman's golf is on the uprise and we should be encouraging our youth to get active and give golf a try from an early age.” Daisy looks forward to playing more golf, improving her skill set and “one day maybe beating Izzy”!
