And as always, watch your stance. Come to think of it, let’s watch the stance of the ten hottest women in golf…
While not purely on the subject of sports equipment, all of these beautiful ladies started their careers with a cut down set of their parents clubs. So here you go! The Top 10 Hottest Women Golfers (in no particular order).
9. Gal tied for 14th in the 2007 LPGA Final Qualifying Tournament to earn full playing privileges on the LPGA in 2008; she turned professional immediately following the tournament. In her fourth season on the LPGA Tour in 2011, Gal won her first event at the Kia Classic in late March. She finished the 72-hole event at 16-under-par, one stroke ahead of runner-up Jiyai Shin Previously her best finish had been fifth at the 2009 LPGA Corning Classic. Also in 2009, she recorded two career-low rounds of 64. (H/T – Rick)
How Gal only came in at #9 is beyond me. I figured she’d be better suited at #6. Heh.
May 21, 2003 – Annika Sorenstam Makes History
On May 22, 2003, golfer Annika Sorenstam becomes the first woman to play in a PGA tour event since Babe Didrikson 58 years earlier, after receiving a sponsor’s exemption to compete in the Bank of America Colonial in Fort Worth, Texas.
At the 2003 Colonial in Fort Worth, Sorenstam measured herself against the best players on the men’s side for the first time. With the exception of Vijay Singh, who stirred controversy saying Sorenstam had “no business” on the course, she was a popular presence with players and fans alike. Her galleries were by far the biggest in the tournament, numbering 50,000 people at times. On her first day, Sorenstam shot a 71, just one over par, putting herself in contention to make the cut and play for the championship. On the second day, she shot a four-over 74, leaving her five-over for the first two days, and missing the cut by four shots. She left the course to a standing ovation.
Of course, the standing ovation was from guys like me who always thought Annika was a hot little Swedish meatball who I’d like to fondue.
A devastating tornado wiped out the city of Moore, Oklahoma on Monday, killing 24 and injuring almost 300. Luckily, The Daily Show’s co-creator Lizz Winstead was there to bring teh funneh.
The mile-wide tornado that destroyed Moore, Okla., and leveled at least two elementary schools was still weaving a path of devastation when Daily Show co-creator Lizz Winstead thought up a funny. Too soon? (H/T – Ray R.)
In fairness, Winstead’s just bitter because God didn’t love her enough to make her pretty.
Philadelphia hosted a job fair for ex-cons on Friday, and the fair was soon canceled after 3,000 convicts showed up.
I don’t know what’s worse; the fact that the city held a job fair for thugs (and not law-abiding citizens) or that we have 3,000 ex-cons roaming our streets.
The City of Philadelphia shut down a career fair for ex-offenders today after an unexpected crowd of thousands showed up, résumés in hand. There were lots of disappointed job seekers and potential employers this morning.
The city was expecting about 1,000 people to show up, but about three times that number were standing in a line that wrapped around the Municipal Services Building, across from City Hall. And when someone jumped the line, order collapsed.
Everett Gillison, the deputy mayor for public safety, says the space designated for the event could not handle the crowd, so they closed it down shortly after it began.
“People want jobs,” said one man. “In the city right now, with jobs it’s just ridiculous trying to find one. It’s almost impossible.” (H/T – Jim)
Whose fault is that, slapnuts? I’m sure this fine, upstanding citizen doesn’t blame the Democrats, who have enjoyed 70+ years of uninterrupted rule. I know, it’s Boooooooooosh’s fault!
My good friend Smite was checking over his blog stats the other day. Normally, search engine results are boring and over-generalized, like “motorcycles.” For Smite, of course, there is always a twist.
While looking up his results from search engines, her found this…
Okay, what the frak is “smite porn,” and is Smite personally involved? I wouldn’t think watching a guy impale hippies… Oh wait, now I get it.
No one at Sterling Cooper could dream up an ad campaign this subtle.
You got yourself a used ‘vw mk2 golf 1.8 gti 8v engine’ that you are looking to sell off. Nothing. I repeat NOTHING sells an engine like a nice set of headlights.
“Radiator and housing Engine mounts Bottom end is also included but has been out in the garden for a while so that’s up to you whether you would like that or not Any questions please feel free to ask.”
I must buy this engine… and I don’t even own a VW Golf!

If you haven’t visited Bacon Bacon… don’t bother now. The greatest restaurant on Earth was forced to close.
A restaurant called Bacon Bacon has been forced to close… over complaints about the overwhelming smell of the bacon. Following failed negotiations with neighbors over concerns, the small San Francisco eatery closed on Friday.
The owners apparently had months to address the “porcine aroma” and “grease disposal” issues but failed to do so reported the San Francisco Examiner.
Figures. Only a-holes from San Francisco would complain about the smell of bacon.
The Washington Post – the Washington Post! – is reporting Eric Holder’s DoJ was spying on Fox News reporter James Rosen in 2010 as he was working on a story about North Korea.
The Department of Justice. There’s a contradiction of terms.
When the Justice Department began investigating possible leaks of classified information about North Korea in 2009, investigators did more than obtain telephone records of a working journalist suspected of receiving the secret material.
They used security badge access records to track the reporter’s comings and goings from the State Department, according to a newly obtained court affidavit. They traced the timing of his calls with a State Department security adviser suspected of sharing the classified report. They obtained a search warrant for the reporter’s personal e-mails.
In fairness, the First Amendment is only a suggestion to these people…
Looks like someone has a case of the Mondays…
A former “top cop,” who had the honor of sitting next to first lady Michelle Obama during a televised presidential speech four years ago, is facing rape allegations. Richard DeCoatsworth left a party with two women on Thursday, according to authorities.
The women called authorities and said once they arrived at a second, undisclosed location, the retired officer pulled a gun on them, the Philadelphia Police Department.
He allegedly forced them “to engage in the use of narcotics and to engage in sexual acts,” the statement said. He was charged with rape on Saturday.
A cop in prison; I can think of better ways to live out your golden years.
