Natalie Gulbis gets her body paint on

I post this out of, uh, duty just to let golf fans and anyone else who might stumble this way know that LPGA star Natalie Gulbis is on display in this year's Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition, now available at a computer or magazine rack near you.

Based on my quick study of Gulbis' 10-photo online portfolio, there's not a golf club to be seen but that apparently isn't the reason she's in the swimsuit edition.

In fact, she's not even wearing a bikini. Gulbis is wearing body paint that looks like a bikini. Having painted a room or two myself, I couldn't help wondering if they put that blue tape on Gulbis before they began painting her, uh, pretend bikini.

The good news for golfers is Gulbis is included in the magazine as part of an athletes in body paint section, which should answer once and for all the eternal question are golfers athletes.

If you look closely at the pictures, you can see what appears to be shadows of the bikini straps,the last time I painted any thing I don't believe it left shadows.

that's what she said...

this makes her an athlete? she's a golfer, the ultimate hobby of old people that can't do anything else.

maybe i could splash a little paint on my body and you would say i'm an athlete.

this chick has a funny face btw.

Suddenly women's golf doesn't seem so boring.

Is it just me, or do the pictures look highly photo-shopped?

She looks spectacular. I certainly hope Sports Illustrated keeps this going as "A Tradition Unlike Any Other."

Natalie Coughlin is actually the best looking one in the entire photo spread...just gorgeous. I wonder if they created the paint so it would actually stay on if you went swimming. Can you just imagine the new phenomenon at the beaches!

Overrated in golf, overrated in a bikini. Playboy is next to offset her diva costs.

What an absolutely ridiculous body, she is smoking hot.

And Ron used the word "rack", hehe. Hellooo Dr. Freud!

I'm guessing the shadows are part of the airbrush/paint work. The photos have been much so that a few look cartoonish.

To anonymous 1:31 PM, Do I sense just a little bit of envy in your remark? Shaping up a little might make you look somewhat like that.
