“It seems like a very, very long time ago. I think about it all day long, every time I go to the course…It motivates me.” – Natalie Gulbis on not winning a tournament since 2007
The professional golf player with a penchant for also posing (and looking great) in a bikini, is currently in a three-way tie with Stacy Lewis and Michelle Wie after the third round of the LGPA Titleholders.
According to USA TODAY, Gulbis made up for a rough start with a 7-under-65 to place her neck-to-neck with two exceptional competitors. This is exemplary considering that she has not won a tournament in over five years, and was ill with malaria and unable to practice throughout the entire first half of this year.
Although the LGPA Titleholders prize of $700,000 is the largest in women’s golf, I’m sure that Natalie Gulbis will value taking that trophy for reasons far greater than monetary. We’ll all find out tomorrow if that victory will be hers.
