Anna Rawson opens mouth, inserts foot
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!
