It is tough for marketers when your champion athlete is not a "Looker" and the challenge is to sell the product while trying to also improve the image of the individual athlete. But, once Natalie Gulbis wins a couple of majors, sponsors will be all over her for commercials and ad campaigns because she has a credible game and is easy on the eyes.

I personally think that Annika Sorenstam is better looking than people give her credit for...she's got a great figure and nice eyes. If the marketers capitalize on her strong points I'll bet she'll get more ads. She'll also be able to fit into different types of commercials without a golf club in her hand!

Natalie Gulbis is one smart cookie. She puts herself "out there" as often as she can looking as good as she can.

On the PGA tour the men aren't expected to look any different than they do...just put them in a golf shirt and give them a golf club. For the women it's an entire different situation. The women have to be both easy on the eyes and have a great game...it isn't just one or the other.

I would like to highlight to the golf fan community at large that only 30 active PGA players and maybe 2-3 LPGA players fly on private jets. The rest of us fly coach, maybe on business if we have solid sponsors and a good season.
Now that being said, where's Balthazar my pilot :)

Megan, I thought that some pro golfers use Netjets because they can fly at a fraction of the cost of owning one. Would it be cheaper to go that route or to fly coach?

Ah, to have my own personal pilot! That would have saved us several hours this weekend...we drove to Atlantic City and the roads were packed!
