At the risk of losing major lesbo points, I have to admit that any interest I have in women’s golf has little to do with the sport itself.
The Aussie ended the LPGA qualifying tourney as first on the conditional status list, meaning she gets to play a tournament if a higher-ranking golfer opts out — or if a tournament sponsor invites her to play. Which, no doubt, many will. Especially if she wears these shorts.
Personal shallowness aside, I must take issue with this part of the press release announcing her qualification:
I beg your pardon? The combination of femininity, athletic talent and intelligence is a rarity in sports? Don’t tell Natalie Gulbis.
Or Paula Creamer.
Or Cristie Kerr.
Or Carin Koch.
Those are just a few of the femme, athletic, talented, smart women in sports – and we haven’t even left the LPGA. Sports of all kind are teeming with such women. (And before you deduct any feminism points, I should add that I am not equating femininity with attractiveness — I’d take Mauresmo over Sharapova any day of the week.)
What do you think of the LPGA lineup? Are cover girls good for the game, or do they detract from the pure sport of golf? And whose swing would you most like to share?
