Natalie Gulbis Gets Married! (Photos)

20 posts in this topic

Natalie Gulbis Ties the Knot  It has been a big week for LPGA announcements. Just a few days after Paula Creamer announced her engagement, Natalie Gulbis has gotten married.  The 29 year old Gulbis was married yesterday to former Yale quarterback Josh Rodarmel.  Here are some photo's of the happy event:  [URL=http://thesandtrap.com/content/type/61/id/88286/] [/URL] [URL=http://thesandtrap.com/content/type/61/id/88287/] [/URL]

Id chalk this up as, "who cares?"  Gulbis isnt all that pretty anyways and whens the last time she won a golf tournament?  Its time for her to go away, be a housewife and pop out a few kids.

The old adage, if you can't say something nice...well you know the rest. I think some guys would disagree  with you re: her looks. As far as her not winning, she gets to do what she loves for a living, and makes a decent wage, I would bet... ;-)

Natalie missed some of the first half of the season with, of all things, a case of Malaria. She wound up #63 on the money list with $188,000.

Not a lot compared to what the men bring in, but not that bad either.

Then add some sponsorship money as well...

If Natalie continues having "sub-par" seasons like this last one...her and her husband might just go broke.



*SARCASM. *




Wouldn't it be nice if your wife made $200,000+ per year? I'd gladly be the "housewife" for her.

Even though Gulbis's better playing days are behind her she's still a huge fan favorite and likely in the top 5 requested pros in the pro-ams.

Her bread is buttered outside the ropes. She has many sponsors.

I'd bet she makes at least $1M/yr in endorsements...but I think it maybe closer to $2M/yr.

Even if she retires in 2 years, I've got to believe some of her sponsors will retain her on a lower monetary level.

Obviously you do. Afterall, you went through the trouble of finding and posting in a thread about it. Oh, the irony.

On a separate note, I hope Natalie knows what she's doing. This guy admitted that his powerbands were basically a placebo, the company had to declare bankruptcy and he lost it as a result. Plus, from what I understand he never played a single down as Yale quarterback. Hope Nat got an ironclad prenup.

I'm sure Gulbis has a pretty solid pre-nupt and I think Josh stashed some money away even though his company went bankrupt.

I'm sure Josh is a good 'salesman' but I think Gulbis would be cautious of any guy considering her net worth.

I met Josh in August at the Safeway event and spoke with him a few times. He was humble, sincere and engaging....he could have easily just brushed me off.....but he treated other spectators in the same enthusiastic fashion.

The guy even remember my name on Sunday morning....it was he who asked my name...not vs versa when we 1st chatted....I maybe watch Gulbis for 1 or 2 holes maximum per day.

Excellent point. I think her endorsement dollars far exceed her LPGA earnings.

She has had back issues in the past as well.  She played some decent tournaments this year.  If she can stay healthy, I think she will rally.

A hunch on her personality traits and handlers over the years.

Or you just pulled that out of a hat?

Looks wise parts of Natalie appeal to me but all put together it just doesn't seem to work for me, at least when she is golf attire. She looks pretty here but the pics are a little fuzzy. Truth though, my opinion doesn't mean shit and I am allergic to marriage so I rarely can agree to signing papers releasing rights to a government entity to make decisions for you. Marriage is just another way for the gubment to dictate your life.... why else would it afford you tax write offs.... *gets off his soap box and back on topic...

Well I hope it all works out...

    • Played yesterday at SGCC. 36-40-76 -2 birdies and 2 doubles (ugh), one double was a 3-putt
    • I am going to try the TP version of my old club.  It has a 390CC head.  It was only 30 bucks so I figured it couldn't hurt to see if it helps a little on the forgiveness.  I guess the game is just passing me by...I can't see myself using those gigantic drivers.  The thing I noticed is that with the smaller head, that I am more focused on hitting the sweet spot.  With the giant club it just seems like you hit it anywhere on the face.  Am I correct in thinking that a "sweet spot" is not any larger on the bigger heads?  Is it just that on off center hits there is better chance of hitting it straight?  
    • I'll keep this on the short side because some random person's Member Swing thread isn't really the place for this kind of discussion… By most I'll clarify: the vast, vast majority. I'm not talking about 53% here. That doesn't mean you were doing it right or most efficiently. You may very well have been capable of making the change - and making it more quickly - with a ball if you'd done it differently. Sounds slow. Not for everyone, but for a good chunk of people. That's not what I advocate in the above linked post, either. Generally speaking, here's what I see: You tell people to fix the move without a golf ball. They work and work and film and record, and eventually, they've got a great practice swing. You say "great, now do that with a ball" and they almost immediately and completely revert to their old swing. Simply put, what I recommend to people is: A rehearsal swing or two. Often these too are shorter, slower, simpler swings. A shorter, slower, simpler swing focusing just on the "piece" while hitting a ball. As you become proficient, the swing gets less short, less slow, and closer to the full swing. Practice at the edge of your ability, but do it with a ball. The approach there blends no-ball practice (the first bullet) but immediately ties it to a motion you make with a golf ball. If you're shanking, topping, etc. the ball too much, you're not doing it slowly, "shortly," or simply enough.
    • Shot a 41 in my match play League.  Opponent was giving me 3 strokes.  I won the match 5 to 4. 5 pars 3 bogeys 1 double Good:  Drove 6/7 fairways and the only one that I missed was by about a foot.  Hit some very good approach shots.  I had 4 birdie putts ranging from 6-25 feet.  Alas, i made none. Bad: Other than duffing 2 shots on the first hole (an easy par 5) i played pretty solid.    
    • This entirely depends on where you play. I play courses that usually have three groups and a couple of singles out per side, and I would say no, but then I get to an urban course, like Long. Island, or South Florida, and it's anger management time.  I like to watch my friends's shots, and compliment their successes, I take a couple practice swings if I am in an uneven lie, or whatever, but I am not going to spend time searching for extra balls while walking between shots, or sit and BS at the tee before shooting. For some reason I am always ready to hit first, honors or no, and I just don't get why people take so long there. As long as I can do the things I enjoy, like watching my shots and my friends shots, and take due care taking my shots and putting, I don't feel rushed, but three hours for a foursome means you have four serious golfers. My golfing is more social so that is unlikely to happen. I play with one guy who takes pace seriously, and we do fine.  If we want to pick up the pace of a group, we play best ball. Maybe the conversations on the tee are because that's where everybody gathers together for the next hole and people like to talk. I like to play golf.
