Evidently, there’s a story from Yardbarker making the rounds that “LPGA golfers Natalie Gulbis and Paula Creamer are furious with the clothing choice made by Olivia Munn during her tour debut at the Canadian Women’s Open. ‘The tour has standards. For her to disrespect the sport like she did in Vancouver is unacceptable,’ Gulbis wrote on Twitter.”
That said, assuming they did say Olivia Munn was “disrespecting the sport”– and I’m no Olivia Munn fan and I hate to defend her– but what did they expect for her to wear?
She’s a celebrity in a golf tournament, obviously pretending to play golf– she is not (and doesn’t claim to be) a professional LPGA golfer. So who cares if she’s wearing 5 inch heels and a cleavage-baring shirt? Anyone with half a brain knows that she’s not REALLY there to play golf. I bet the sponsors of the tournament are thrilled at the mainstream attention Olivia and her outfit are getting and giving a raise to the genius who invited her.
The ironic thing about this (non)story is that both Natalie and Paula are considered two of the “sexiest” female golfers in the sport, according to golf.com. (Side note: Michelle Wie is on that list, too.) Natalie even caused a bit of a furor when she released a sexy 2005 calendar which the United States Golf Association (USGA) deemed “inappropriate.” And Paula has been known to don a sexy outfit or two, herself. (I’ll spare you from the “Creamer” joke I was about to make.)
I feel your eyes may be glazing over from so many mentions of golf in one sitting. I shall put you out of your misery by sharing a couple more Olivia Munn’s golf/bikini shots. (Don’t ask me why she’s wearing too little on the golf course, but a tarp on the beach, though.)
