Happy Birthday Tiger!

Tiger Woods turns the magical age of 33 today! I dont know why age 33 is magical, but I'm sure Tiger will show us this year when he dusts off the ol' clubs in the garage!

Dear Tiger: Have an enjoyable day with the family today, chip a few, maybe even play 9. Have a cocktail, get a massage, buy yourself a new Maserati or a hire someone to fan your face and press your feet for 24 hours. Call up Michael Jordan and tell him to bring you some cupcakes with sprinkles...

Whatever floats your boat... you are Tiger Woods damnit! You are the man, even during the off-season sweetie:)

Cop, Bartender, Transexual & Long Drive Champion

Who says Golf is boring? From cop to bartender to transvestite to long-drive champion. Should we call on Ace-Ventura for this one?

Golfweek.com's James Achenbach: "The new women's world champion in the event (re/max long drive) is a 55-year-old bartender who used to be a man. Although golf is a sport largely without controversy, the reign of long-drive queen Lana Lawless, (formerly Larry Nivens) who lives in Palm Springs, Calif., is expected to be neither tranquil nor uneventful." Easy there Achenbach...!?

Lana Lawless: "In Palm Springs, I'm like celebrity central," she said, "Hey, I carry myself well, I'm well-spoken, I'm funny as hell. I fit in with a world that is expanding its acceptance."

To keep things in a random perspective, Paul Hunn is interestingly enough also a celebrity in his hometown of Enfield, North London, holding the record for the loudest burp. 'Twas a burp of 104.9 decibels (about as loud as an airplane taking off). He trains by eating curries and kebabs and drinking fizzy drinks.

ESPN: "In 2005, the USGA approved transgender involvement in competition." Cool.

Golf Couture: I'd rather read Lana Lawless's autobiography before Sarah Palin's 7-million dollar autobiography. Donuts, Vodka, Breast Implants and Golf!

Williams talkin' Smack!

T-Woods is blasting back onto the media scene as caddy/BFF Steve Williams talks smack about Phil Mickelson... oooooohhhhh!!! "I wouldn't call Mickelson a great player ... 'cause I hate the pr*ck."- He says. "Tiger doesn't like him too much."- He says. Williams even makes mention of stories regarding Phil's "Manb**bs"! Way Harsh:)

Steve Williams - MSNBC: “I don’t deny that him and I don’t get along,” Steve Williams told The Associated Press from his home in New Zealand. “I shouldn’t have said it, but no harm was meant. I was just having some fun.”

Tiger Woods - Golf-Fanhouse.com: "I was disappointed to read the comments attributed to Steve Williams about Phil Mickelson, a player that I respect," Woods said in a statement Monday. "It was inappropriate. The matter has been discussed and dealt with."

Oh Snap! Can you imagine Tiger dealing with it? If it were me, I would make sure to put on a lot of lipgloss, a sorry puppy face and wear my 5-inch red pumps (Tiger loves red;) and a black Miracle Bra from Victoria's Secret so he's slightly distracted while lecturing me;) WOW! ...but it would be interesing to hear how Steve prepared?

In response to the Chuck-e-Cheese comments made by Williams, Phil Mickelson said, "All I could think of was how lucky I am to have a class act like Bones (his caddie, Jim Mackay) on my bag and representing me."
5-points for Phil and minus-10 points for Steve! TEAM PHIL - I never thought the day would come?

Note to Steve Williams: Dude. Not cool dude:( I mean, you're pretty cool because you hang out with Tiger Woods 24-7, but that doesn't give you the right to talk smack (openly-at least), in fact it means the opposite son! Finally, Don't hate the PLAYA, hate the GAME! Golf Couture, keepin' it real...

Lewis, Wie, Rawson enter the Big Leagues

For all the Michelle Wie haters, Wie has now secured her spot on the 2009 LPGA Tour. Whether they realize it - this is the most amazing thing to happen to Womens Golf in a LONG time. Wie has answered her critics, and most importantly, proved something to herself.

Golf Couture is thankful that Wie was able to take correct lateral drops during competition while managing to sign her scorecard after her round all 5 days of Q-School - Whew! That was the biggest hurdle for her, trust me... qualifying was a no brainer for Wie.

Stacey Lewis, the University of Arkansas step-up, finished medalist at Q-School and topped Wie by six shots, finishing at -18 under par. Lewis won the 2007 NCAA Championships as an individual and never looked back.

Recently signing a deal with Mizuno, Lewis said, "I've used Mizuno clubs ever since my freshman year at Arkansas and have enjoyed success with them throughout my collegiate career,” said Lewis. “As a professional, there was really no reason to play any other club. I'm looking forward to a long and successful partnership with Mizuno."

Anna Rawson, one of our personal faves here at Golf Couture;) - earned her card with a T-12 finish at -8 under par. The LPGA should be truly thanking their lucky stars for this! She will bring coolness, fashion, sexy and hotness onto the course with a graceful elegance. A pre-2009 THANK YOU ANNA:)

So while we say bye to Annika, we say hello to some amazing women ready to take the Womens Golf World by storm! YAY:)

Golfin' Obama!

I was on youtube.com, just "youtoobing" random things - because when you are single and in your 20's, that is what you do these days... and I find Obama (aka "HOT LEFTY") golfing in Honolulu!~Woot Woot! Just when I thought he was too good to be true, he reassures me that he is! Now if he'll only reconsider higher-taxes for the small-business:)... but that's a whole new blog sweetie!

Click here to see: Obama Golfing
About.com's Brent Kelly writes these Golfing Tidbits:

... In June, after clinching the Democratic presidential nomination, Obama played golf in the Chicago area with a few campaign aides.

"They went to a golf course, and they swung golf clubs," campaign spokesman Robert Gibbs said on MSNBC's Morning Joe. "But I don't think it was real pretty."

Of the past 17 United States presidents, USA Today says, 14 were golfers. Only Herbert Hoover, Jimmy Carter and Harry Truman were not golfers. Two bad presidents and one great one.

I will leave you on this note...
