LPGA Players Pose for ESPN The Magazine "Body" Issue

110 posts in this topic

Sandra Gal, Kristina Kim, and Anna Grezbien will appear in various states of undress in the next issue celebrating the athlete. Do you think this undermines them as athletes or is this what needs to happen with a tour halfway down the toilet? Wish it was Creamer, Presser, Gulbis but I guess we can't be choosy. I think this your needs something and fast and if this gets them some press then more power to them.

i dont mind seeing semi nude women in mags... but its pretty much a bummer the whole state of the lpga these days...

i see extremely talented young girls at the course i practice at... the course i work at... and my home course... they all love the game and are pretty dedicated to the sport... kinda sucks that they might not have a future in it even if they are potential champs...

im actually a fan of the lpga and would much rather watch women play than the champions tour with more than a few out of shape old guys

There are semi-nude male athletes in that magazine all the time. What's the difference? It isn't like they're lewd or obscene pictures. The human body can be a beautiful thing that should be enjoyed. Not shunned and feared as the protestants and puritans of yesterday would have.

Norman, Stewart, Fergus, Jacobsen and Caldwell did it in a golf magazine back in the 80s. It was pretty lame, but if it's good for the PGA by all means let the LPGA give it a go.

Yeah, Anna Kornakova(however you spell it) and that Sharapova girl have almost ruined tennis.

Hi Gang,

Well, as some of you will remember, I am a huge supporter of the LPGA and an even bigger supporter of nude women. I don't think that the LPGA is ready yet to throw in the towel or to have it's members be comprimised posing for nude shots for a magazine but, I'll be the first in line at Borders the day it's released.

I don't think it will make any difference. There are so many pictures of scantily clad women in magazines and on the internet, three more isn't going to have an effect on the LPGA tour in general. It might help the name recognition for the three women and might get them more attention, invites to special events, endorsement money, etc.

She did, and that didn't seem to help or hurt the tour. I doubt this will either!

    • A figment of Bill Kristol's imagination.
    • LOL, I had to read it a bunch of times too.  Still not 100% but ... I think the confusion was brought in by their effort to minimize the severity of the "issue."  They could have just said "an issue that could prevent headphone audio controls from working," but I assume that they wanted to stress that the issue is minor and they're not always not working, only temporarily.   Funny thing is once they added to the "temporarily" they could have dumped the "not" - it means basically the same thing with or without the "not."
    • Entered the last week of the regular season on Monday.  It was also Senior Night.  Typically, it is a great night for us and did end good.  However, it was a rough start.  One of my seniors was pulled over driving to our course and had 3 other players in her car.  While she was given a warning, they got to our course late and so, were rushed to get dressed and on the course.  Naturally, she was shaken up.  My #1 was again medalist but we shot the worst score we have shot on they year.  We shot a 215 and that is terrible.  We lost to both opponents we played that night and have beaten both by 20 this year.  Today was our conference tournament.  It is held at a very tough course for girls, has a lot of sand and water and trees.  My #4 who is really my #3 but I defer to an older girl at #3 could not play since she was rushed to the emergency room.  She is very sick.  Anyway, my #1 shot a 77 on a windy cold day and was Medalist.  She out shot the next competitor by 11 strokes.  Her round was one of the most amazing rounds I've seen.  Our conference is very competitive in girl's golf and yet, the #1s from all the other teams could not keep up with her.  My #2 was also All Conference.  From there, we were terrible but in line with the other girls.  Still, when you are missing the young lady that has been averaging 94 per 18 holes, you are not going to win.  We didn't.  Regional Tournament next.  It is on our home course BUT we never get to play those holes.  We have 27 Holes and so, never are allowed on the first 18 due to league play.  I am hoping we get to play those holes now in practice since league is over.  Finally, Senior Night is a celebration of our Seniors.  The other girls bought them some very nice gifts.  It was also my birthday.  They got me an extremely nice Triad Golf Jacket.  I needed it today since we were in the mid 60s with a very hard wind.  I am so blessed to get to be their coach. 
    • Wow! Hillary only got 2% on my quiz.  I knew I didnt like her, but I didnt think it was that bad.
    • I tried to find the debate, but all I could find on was some new reality show called "The Biggest Liar", where two people went after each other as hard as they could for 90 minutes.  When it was over, there was no clear winner, and the only loser was the American people.   I took the quiz, I side with Evan McMullin...........who the hell is Evan McMullin?????
