Lpga commissioner dating Sex off a chatline
You have Tiger and Phil and Adam Scott and Aaron Baddeley. Their clothes are beautiful; everything about them is exciting. Whether we like it or not, we have to promote sex, because sex sells. Selling sexiness never seemed to get in the way of your best golf. The women are not the best athletes -- the men are.I used to take my putter to my hotel room and people would tease me: "Are you going to bed with it? Is it true that on chips and bunker shots you always tried to leave yourself a left-to-right-breaking putt? I could not hit a right-to-left putt to save my life. It's supposed to be about being a champion and doing something for the game. It hurts because I think, "Gee, I wish I had done things differently." What happened to your broadcasting career? Fuzzy Zoeller will give me a big kiss and ask me to play a practice round. Do you think you will get into the World Golf Hall of Fame? I've made the contribution as a player and promoter of women's golf, but you won't see me in the Hall of Fame. After I got mugged and couldn't play for a while, NBC asked me to do commentary for the Nabisco. Hale Irwin and Tom Weiskopf have both sent messages saying they can't wait to see me. She broke down and admitted to nerves on the first tee. But it was great to see that emotion because with us she's intimidating and doesn't talk. If I had to have someone make a pressure putt for me to win a tournament, I'd pick Nancy.\n\n Who maximized the least talent? I think Karrie Webb has the best swing since Mickey Wright. But Nancy Lopez used to get furious, and people loved it. Arnold and Nancy would have played better longer and Jack would still be winning on the Champions Tour if they'd spent more time tinkering with their swings. I am in shock that Nancy and other players don't see it that way. What's the worst sexual discrimination you've faced? I try not to take it personally, but I'm very emotional and it breaks my heart. See what I can do and see what I have done." Time to play a few holes on your course now? We were clapping as we watched her play, saying, "She's changing. No, Beth Daniel -- Beth has stood the test of time. Why hasn't she been right there with Annika, as she used to be? Have you gotten fair credit from the LPGA for your game and your marketing efforts? I wish I had done nothing but practice and work out. When Beth Daniel was playing great I loved to watch her get fined for hitting her club into the dirt and leaving it there. Then, on a rainy day in Japan, I had a horrible temper going and slammed the club into the mud three times before it stuck. I'm so competitive that if I play badly I'm going to look miserable out there. Phil and Davis [Love III] and Annika tinker and they're getting better. He's trying to get the club in front of him, but I think he does it the wrong way. Augusta National changed their racial clause but not their gender clause. You and every other man who has played my new course in Florida, Walkabout Golf and Country Club, love it. Less than four years after Ty Votaw married Sophie Gustafson of Sweden, whom he began dating while still commissioner of the LPGA Tour, the couple has divorced. Johns County, Fla., the marriage was dissolved Jan.
The real Jan was compulsively working on her game, trying to win championships. She loved to surf and was more interested in catching the right wave than the right guy. Recently she got her hands dirty and built her own golf course. And she continues, in her own way, to carry the torch for women's golf. This is probably going to get me in trouble, but the Asians are killing our tour. Their lack of emotion, their refusal to speak English when they can speak English. We have two-day pro-ams where people are paying a lot of money to play with us, and they say hello and goodbye. If I were commissioner, I would have a quota on international players and that would include a quota on Asian players. I'm Australian, an international player, but I say America has to come first.
Votaw is the PGA Tour's chief spokesman, who also spearheaded the successful bid to get golf back in the Olympics.
Gustafson has 23 victories worldwide and has played on the last seven Solheim Cup teams.
Australian Jan Stephenson has gotten her share of good and bad bounces. \n In 1986 you posed for a famous photo -- you and a bunch of golf balls sharing a bath. \n\n Ben got in trouble for saying women couldn't swing well because they have breasts. Were you disappointed when your fellow LPGA Tour pro Jill Mc Gill refused to pose for Playboy? I said to her, "Jill, they're offering you more than half a million dollars.
She sometimes laments that she's not part of golf's in crowd, but she's too much the rebel to fit in. The girl who was winning had the most beautiful body and she's running around in her swimsuit, coming out of the water soaking wet. It's all about sex appeal, and we have more beautiful women on tour now than ever. There are two reasons to do it -- it could change your life financially, and it would put us on the map again." Is it great that LPGA Commissioner Ty Votaw is dating Sophie Gustafson, one of the tour's players? I'm concerned that their relationship affects the future of the LPGA and its ability to secure more sponsors.
