Natalie Gulbis had a great chance to get first LPGA Tour win at the Jamie Farr Owens Corning Classic. After posting a -6 65 in regulation, she went into a 3 hole playoff with Mi Hyun Kim and had to match birdies on the 3rd playoff hole to stay alive. She didn’t.
In the last post I talked about using the words “Tiger Woods” to get lots of hits on your golf site. Well, I’m sure one of the next hottest “hit getters” is Natalie Gulbis. Miranda commented on the last post that her highest searches are for naked golfers. Needless to say if the words “Natalie Gulbis Naked” or “Natalie Gulbis Nude” were in a blog post, it would get lots of hits. Ok, you busted me…hehe. And if you found this post because you were looking for nude pictures of Natalie Gulbis, shame on you.
I have a hard time watching Natalie or Paula Creamer for that matter. They both dip big time in their downswings.
And I also have a hard time watching Natalie putt with that hockey stick grip and open stance. Perhaps some good work with a putting coach and a more conventional grip would have helped her make one of those putts to win on the last regulation hole or the first two playoff holes? Then again her hockey stick stroke got her into the playoff so you can’t argue with those results.
Line Me Up
One other funky thing was that many of the players today, Natalie and Mi Hyun included, had their caddies lining up their shots (not their putts). You don’t see that much on the PGA or other men’s tours. Do these ladies have a hard time with alignment or is it more just part of their preshot routines?
Natalie will win her share eventually.
