I hate it when the outfit hides the cleavage. C'mon John Daly, show us what you got.

Remember a few years ago when the discussion thread a for an article like this would degenerate into a pic thread of sexy golfers that was misogynistic, degrading to women, and, yes, demeaning to the posters themselves?

Thank goodness FARK changed the rules so we don't do that sort of thing any more.

Spiranac has 1.2 million Instagram followers and believes she is treated unfairly for being a woman who dresses differently in a sport dominated by middle-aged men. The 24-year-old is ranked outside the top 1,000.

Before anyone says she is the "golfing Anna Kournikova".... although she never won a major, which was always the knock against her, Anna was still ranked as high as 16th in singles, and was #1 in doubles with Hingis.  So, she actually had "game".

If you aren't ranked in the top 1,000 in the world... you might be a pretty good golfer, but, you are nowhere near being at the "top" of the game.  So, while I don't think she should get death threats... she certainly is getting social media attention for really only one reason, which has little to do with her golfing.

Well I certainly wouldn't dare point you toward her Instagram feed, which does have the kind of outfits you're looking for.

Attention whore gonna attention.

I'd give her a double bogey in the back nine.
 
2018-02-06 10:01:14 AM  
She looks top heavy. She can't possibly hit the ball straight.
 
2018-02-06 10:01:53 AM  
She makes my putter stand up.

I just want to watch golf.  I don't need to be sexually herassed whilst doing it.  Poundmetoo.

Generic golf-related comment that translates into a desire to engage in coitus with her.

Well first of all, men become total idiots when a pretty girl walks in the room.  We somehow want to stare at this girl forever but also become deeply offended if she promotes pictures of herself.  Second, when she tries to be pretty and an athlete, somehow guys have all kinds of big problems with this.
 
2018-02-06 11:51:04 AM  
I'd love for the people harassing her to have to post their handicap with their complaints.

/not mental, the golf one
//mental is a given if they complain
 
2018-02-06 12:07:42 PM  
I should get into golf.
 
2018-02-06 12:08:16 PM  
Many more pictures of her and I'm going to have to regrip my shaft.

FTA: Spiranac has 1.2 million Instagram followers.  "If I was a guy and I had the same social following, I don't think people would call it a gimmick."

Tiger Woods is listed at "1 Million" instagram followers. The Greatest player of the last 20 years male or female. He came around during 24 hour news, Cell phones and eventually had public martial issues that people love gobbling up the news for. She isn't even in the top 1000 in the US.

Miss, you play golf better then anyone I know and could certainly crush me on any course, anywhere. Let's be real though, you are an attractive woman who happens to be a golfer not a golfer who happens to be an attractive woman.

Why are death threats so difficult to prosecute, or prove?

It's testament to my age that that occurred to me to.  She must have a slice like the trajectory of a boomerang.

(a sentance never uttered before in history.)

is she a lez?

And from which it would seem that she spends most of her time in bikinis on beaches rather than actually playing golf...

Well, maybe threats of a little death.  A petit mort, of you will.

FTA: The 24-year-old is ranked outside the top 1,000 ... "People seem to think I got where I am because of the clothes that I wear. That's unfair to me and unfair to all of my accomplishments. I probably do more community service than any other professional golfer."

A humble suggestion: less community service, more practice.

Got "where you are"?   If you aren't in the Top 1,000 (which is all I assume they may even rank probably), then, being 1001st is just about as good as being 50,000th.... you aren't "on the list".
I'm sure she's won some local and regional tournaments maybe... good for her... but "where she is" is primarily million+ social media follows, 99% of which are because of what she wears and how she looks in it.

In all probability, the death threats were coming from inside the house.
