Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and the boys of the PGA Tour may dominate the headlines and garner all the attention in golf and that’s a shame. Contrary to popular thought it isn’t all about Tiger.

Natalie Gulbis In Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue

by Jeff Skinner For a long time Natalie Gulbis has been one of the most popular golfers on the LPGA Tour.  Her appearance in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue will do nothing to hurt that, at least among her male fans.  Natalie doesn’t appear in a swimsuit though, she is wearing a bikini made of body paint and while she may get some flak for this you have to give her some credit for being willing to push the envelope.… Continue Reading
