This picture reminds me of a joke that I am sure many people here are familiar with.

A lady comes running into the pro shop and yells "my friend needs medical help.  She got stung by a bee! And she is allergic to bee stings!"  The pro asks "where?"  And the lady replies between hole #1 and hole #2!  The pro says "well her stance must've been too wide."

Mvmac... Looks like she needs to get the 'S' bend out of her lower back, and improve her stance by hunching over more to round her back, wouldn't you say?

Dunno... I think we need a face on shot to truly examine her.  I mean her SWING... yeah.

I am always surprised that golf mag puts out photos like this.  The Body Issue by ESPN is one thing--at least there is a theme of admiration of the fit athlete.  But this is just a shot up the girl's skirt.

nah, they wear these little compression shorts underneath.  most of the time they are built right in to the skirt.  almost like a skort.

With the current state of the LPGA having trouble with sponsors, ratings and attendance at tournaments recently, it in no way surprises me that they would encourage any sort of attention they can bring to their tour and athletes.  Having been around the LPGA tour events and met some of the golfers, I think it is a great thing to bring more publicity and a wider audience base to a great sport that deserves more attention.
