Learn more about Anna and her journey below. 

 

I tried golfing when I was 10 years old because my two brothers and dad played it up. I hated it and quit. When I was 13 my mom said she was going to try it and I refused to be the worst golfer in the family, so I tried it again and I've been hooked since.

The most enjoyable part of my job is traveling the world, doing what I love and meeting so many extraordinary people and friends a long the way.

 

 

What are your accomplishments thus far?

 Won 6 times on LPGA tours and 1 Major. 4 time European Solheim Cup Team Member.

 

Who is your biggest inspiration?

My Grandpa was always my biggest inspiration because he always believed in me and told me to fight and never give up.

What’s your favorite inspirational quote?

"Carpe diem." I wear a silver bracelet with it on it on my right wrist and I have been for years.

What hobbies & activities do you enjoy in your spare time?

I love graphic design and photography. I love cooking and I enjoy different sports, paddle boarding and hanging out with friends outside of golf.

What are your guilty pleasure foods?

 Swedish candy hands down, preferably Salty licorice.

Oh Sweden... I love you!! ?? #swedishcandy

What’s your favorite music to listen to while you workout and why?

I listen to music all the time. When i work out and when I practice, I have my own gym so I have one of the bouncer speakers and play music really loud. I listen to mostly pop and anything with a good beat like Cold Play, Adele, The Fray, etc.

Why do you like listening to music? When do you like to listen the most?

Music keeps me in a happy and positive state of mind. it's a good mood setter and picks me up if I'm down.

What are your 2016 goals?

Take a medal at the Olympics in Rio and to contend in the Majors.

Proud to be swedish! ?? @gettyimages @golfchannel shoot today with the blue and yellow flag!

What are your favorite JLab products & why?

Bouncer Speaker in the gym, so I can play it out loud. For golf, running, and working out on tour, I love the Epic2 Bluetooth Wireless, no cables and easy to use. Everyday life, like phone calls and Facetime I use the Cores!

JLab Audio Debuts New Epic2 Bluetooth Wireless Sport Earbuds

JLab Upgrades Award-Winning Earbuds to Feature Waterproof Rating, Better Connectivity and Longer Battery Life 

Contact: media@jlabaudio.com

SAN DIEGO – JLab Audio announced the release of the next generation of their most award-winning product ever: Epic2 Bluetooth Wireless Sport Earbuds. The waterproof Bluetooth earbuds offer a best-in-class battery life of 12 hours – four hours more than the closest competitor – and a waterproof, sweat-proof design with Beacon™ Signal Technology ideal for exercise, running and on-the-go audio. The Epic2 Bluetooth Earbuds are available in Jet Black, Blue/Graphite, Teal/Graphite at www.jlabaudio.com on May 1, 2016.

"Epic2 Bluetooth Earbuds are the best product we’ve ever launched – waterproof, sport-proof and have immersive, high quality sound," said Win Cramer, President, JLab Audio. "We took an already award-winning product and improved it based on feedback we received from customers. We are proud to offer upgraded durability and connectivity."

With 12 hours of mind-blowing sound between charges, JLab Epic2 Bluetooth Earbuds power past the competition, with the closest competitor offering only eight hours. The earbuds have JLab’s proprietary C3™ (Crystal Clear Clarity) technology, delivering a clean, crisp sound with vibrant highs, mids and a pumping bass through high-performance eight-millimeter drivers, which are 50 percent larger than the nearest competitor, producing an over-ear headphone-like experience.

To ensure a waterproof IPX5 design, the mic and controls housing were totally redesigned with an ultra-sonic sealed battery compartment and plasma-coated PCB boards. Additionally, Beacon™ Signal Technology built with a ceramic Bluetooth antenna, which provides improved Bluetooth connectivity and reduces environmental detuning.

To deliver the perfect sport fit for any fitness fanatic or avid runner, the Epic2 Bluetooth Earbuds are equipped with JLab’s patent-pending Memory Wire™ over-ear hooks, cable mini-clips and eight gel tip sizes that all combine to give the perfect fit. In addition to the single and double flange gel tips, JLab now offers a shallow tip for smaller ears along with the first-ever custom designed triple flange to seal in the sound and tune out distractions.

Beacon Signal Technology for improved Bluetooth Connectivity

Fine-tuning the Epic2 Bluetooth Earbuds goes all the way down to a tiny little antenna in the mic housing. With Beacon Signal Technology, we are able to provide skip-free tunes, even in the most demanding situation.

The Epic2's Beacon Signal Technology utilizes a ceramic Bluetooth antenna, which provides improved wireless connectivity and reduces environmental detuning. Bluetooth is a wireless technology that communicates from one device to another (more below). And thanks to Beacon Signal Technology and its ceramic mic, you'll enjoy a better earbud-to-device signal and uninterrupted tunes.

Learn more about Bluetooth.

According to their website:

What is Bluetooth?
Bluetooth is a global wireless communication standard that connects devices together over a certain distance. Think headset and phone, speaker and PC, basketball to smartphone and more. It is built into billions of products on the market today and connects the Internet of Things (IoT). If you haven’t heard of the IoT, go here.

How does Bluetooth work?
A Bluetooth device uses radio waves instead of wires or cables to connect to a phone or computer. A Bluetooth product, like a headset or watch, contains a tiny computer chip with a Bluetooth radio and software that makes it easy to connect. When two Bluetooth devices want to talk to each other, they need to pair. Communication between Bluetooth devices happens over short-range, ad hoc networks known as piconets. A piconet is a network of devices connected using Bluetooth technology. The network ranges from two to eight connected devices. When a network is established, one device takes the role of the master while all the other devices act as slaves. Piconets are established dynamically and automatically as Bluetooth devices enter and leave radio proximity. If you want a more technical explanation, you can read the core specification or visit the Wikipedia page for a deeper technical dive.

A video posted by Long Le (@longdigga) on


Highlights from Week 1

  • Ice Cube stole the show ... with some sweet appearances by Snoop Dog, N.W.A. Reunited and Common
  • Other special guest spots (Lorde with Disclosure, Sam Smith with Disclosure)
  • Alana George did three performances (1. herself, 2. Disclosure, 3. Baauer)
  • Art Installations Experience
  • Ah-mazing people watching
  • Fashion sense was 'less-is-more'

Long's Tips for Coachella

  • Hydrate
  • Eat healthy
  • You can hear the music from everywhere - and the screens to see performances are visible nearly everywhere. No need to fight to the front.
  • Wipes ... it's sandy and sometimes they run out of TP
  • Eye drops recommended (they cost $5 for a mini bottle)
  • Wear a bandanna (for fashion and function)
  • Rent a locker ... and bring all the supplies you need
  • Beers cost $18. Just something to consider
  • Hydrate

And when you're done with the performances ... head back to your place and end the day by the pool with some good tunes.
