From the Rough

Golf without discretion

Anna Rawson opens mouth, inserts foot

with 6 comments


Like Paula Creamer and Natalie Gulbis, Anna Rawson represents a new LPGA Tour that’s known just as much for its sex appeal as it is for the high quality golf being played on the course every weekend.

Rawson, a former model-turned professional golfer, has most recently been the Anna Kournikova of the golf world in the sense that her looks on the course don’t necessarily equate to a flawless golf game. While she is a good player, she still has a long way to go to being in the same realm as Paula Creamer and Lorena Ochoa.

One thing Rawson isn’t afraid to do is be opinionated. That was apparent by her recent quotes to the LA Daily News about the money male professional golfer make.

Well she’s at it again, and this time she’s going after her own tour. And you know that’s never a good thing. She told a local Aussie radio station that quote, “The tour has got so much better with so many young stars and great players. But the mentality unfortunately amongst the media and the industry hasn’t changed,” Rawson said. “They still think we’re at 25 years ago when the tour was full of, you know, a lot of dykes and unattractive females nobody wanted to watch.”

Unattractive dykes? Yeah, that’s they way to endear yourself to the LPGA past and present. Keep up the great work, Anna!

  4. […] Australia.” We’re guessing she did OK in that regard. As for the pro career, when you are best-known for referring to ex-LPGA Tour players as “ a lot of dykes and unattractive females nobody wanted to watch”, you know you should be […]

  5. I suppose it’s all the dykes and fugly chicks that are complaining about this. To be honest I love watching Laura Daily, but I also like looking at the lithe legs in the short skirts. BTW Anna is a good looker and a good golfer

  6. Golf is too boring… Back in the days of Moses the warlocks would beat the ground with sticks, today they call it golf…
