Tina Miller & Kim Kardashian's Engagements

The drop-dead-gorgeous Tina Miller, (who is also a BFF of mine:), has a lot going for her these days! She's the new face of Powerbuilt Golf, their infomercial is to be aired on the Golf Channel this year, and Tina is a host.

A special day is coming up in a few weeks, as Tina is preparing to marry the love of her life, who happens to be the studly Carolina Panther kicker, Mr. Rhys Lloyd! Yes ladies, he has an british accent!

Only Golf Couture would have a picture of the hot n' happy couple sharing a smoochie-smooch in the Panther locker room, compliments of Limelight Photography!
Tina and I commonly refer to eachother as the "Paris and Kim of Golf" (Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian)...Ummm, on that note - I was sifting through and found that my homegirl/fashion icon is "possibly" engaged to NFL BF Reggie Bush? Check out the ring bling Kim's wearing! Could it be?
Congrats and Happy Birthday to you Tina! "Paris... we need to talk!"

Ashley Prange's Bachelorette

This past weekend was dedicated to celebrating Ashley Prange's recent engagement to Mr. Brian Snyder (a handsome and strapping up and coming Major League Baseball Star!) It was a wonderful time in Las Vegas with fellow golf-mates from the LPGA and the Duramed Futures Tour. Attendettes included LPGA Rookie Jessica Shepley, Futures Tour players current and former, Seema Sadekar, Amber Prange, Ashley Gomes, Brenda McClarnon and some of Ashley's cutest and closest buds! FYI, The lovely and hilarious Brenda McLarnon will also be making her TV debut on the Golf Channel's PEI: Big Break in May.

Totally the Best Part: The Bachelorette Party had coincidentally tied in the same weekend as the of the 2009 Miss America Pageant Competition, so everywhere we went with our "Bachelorette Sashes" (seen above) - people thought we were apart of it ...and we went right along with the notoriety;)

Amazing Time! Congrats to the beautiful Ms. Ashley Prange! :)

Tiger speaks at Inauguration

Tiga Tiga Tiga Woods Y'all!

A hero on so many levels, he took the stage yesterday during the "We are One" concert outside the Lincoln Memorial, alongside several other notable figures for Barack Obama's long-awaited Inauguration.

Associated Press: Woods has been as apolitical as they come, keeping his views firmly to himself during his rise to become the world's top golfer. It was only after Obama's election in November that Woods expressed his excitement over "a person of color in the White House."

"I am the son of a man who dedicated his life to his country, family and the military, and I'm a better person for it," Woods said referring to his late father, Earl Woods, who did two tours during the Vietnam War with the U.S. Army Special Forces, "always stand by and support the men and women in uniform and their families."

I wonder if Barack and Tiger had some time to tee-it-up at Congresssional Country Club, where Tiger hosts the AT& T National, a new PGA Tour event in July in Bethesda Maryland, just outside of DC? .....Wouldn't it be fun to play in a threesome with Tiger and Barack? Two of my all time faves!

Adam Scott & Kate Hudson Beach Date

Australian Golf Hotness, Adam Scott and blonde/funny actress Kate Hudson, were spotted in Maui "canoodling, dining together". Some tattle-tale told the media that they were "flirting electronically" together prior to their beach date? Duh! Obviously!

According to Scott said this about his "Beach Date": "I'm not here with her but I know Kate. We met here [for the first time]. We have a mutual friend so we met through him." Who's the mutual friend? Is he the same guy that told the reporters that they were "flirting electronically"? BTW, "flirting electronically" is top 5 dumbest things i've ever heard, FYI peoples!

Me so confuse! Why can't 2 people be friends on the beach? Or why can't 2 rich/hot/famous people be JUST friends on the beach? What are we really asking?

Kate has a booger. But she does a good job of hiding it when Adam looks away - too soon in the relationship to show eachother your boogers!!!:)

Lorena's Engaged!

Lorena Ochoa's Engaged! Congratulations! An amazing feeling has come over all of us here at Golf Couture:)

What does he do? He is the CEO & Chairman of AeroMexico, a current sponsor of the Mexican Golf Superstar...

What is Aeromexico? AeroMexico, is the global airline of Latin America. Recently it announced expansion into its North American operations, with new service to Toronto, Canada, San Francisco and Denver in early 2009. Daily and non-stop flights to Mexico City, with connecting service to 40 destinations throughout Mexico and cities in 12 other countries in Latin America, Europe and Asia make Aeromexico a great choice! We could all use a trip to Mexico!!!

Here's a cute pic of the lovebirds together: Too cute:)

According to the The Golf Girl - Patricia Hannigan (Golf Couture Mentor): "According to Quién, the bi-weekly Mexican magazine, Andres Conesa Labastida, the handsome CEO of Aeroméxico, proposed to Lorena during a romantic European trip in December. They plan to marry at the end of this year."

I wanna see the ring ladies! He seems like he wouldn't try and "cut back" because of the "economy":) Just a random thought!!! Older and Wiser;) Good Work Sweetie!

Annika Ties the Knot

Congrats to Annika Sorenstam for getting married to long-time "BF" (slang for boyfriend/signifigant other) and somewhat of a manager of her brand and products, Mr. Mike McGee! How cute and wonderful!!!

She obviously looked drop-dead gorgeous - the most beautiful I've ever seen Annika look! Even though she hasn't been swinging the clubs, it looks as though she is still pumping iron in the gym! Go ahead girlfriend! Practicing for Dancing with Stars huh? I have this hunch?

The Honeymoon: A ski trip. Perfect, she gets to leave the clubs at home and bring only sweaters and cocoa:) Her and Mike are going to cuddle up by a warm fire on a furry rug in a Colassal Christmas Cabin made of maple wood and cherry oak... I'm guessing:)
Congrats to you both!

Natalie's Birthday Bash

Las Vegas, the overdramatic and overhyped city of Sin played host to Natalie Gulbis's underpromoted 26th Open Birthday Party. Hosted at Blush, the "lounge/nightclub" at the Wynn Hotel, Natalie looked gorgeous as usual, and mingled with everyone while texting and frequently checking the BlackBerry! Birthday girl was blowin' up!

Seeing as there was a very small turnout, most of which were local media goobers - she (or her PR peeps) probably should've started handing out these promo-card-bad-boys a bit sooner. But sometimes quaint and quiet parties do the trick...

My date: Lance Ringler from Golfweek

Our only research tidbit: She was born at 5:44am

Overall Party Experience: 2 1/2 stars

Props to Natalie for hosting a B-Day Party: 5 stars
