Lexus Is More... at the 2009 US Women's Open


















The be-dimpled LS 460 golf ball car occupies a proud place in the Lexus tent at the US Women's Open. For me, seeing the sleek, texturized sedan there was like meeting up with an old friend, as I first encountered the golf ball-inspired vehicle almost a month ago at Bethpage Black.

The whimsical one-off is certainly the most unusual of the Lexus automobiles on display - and in use by players - at this major event.

Cat and I thought it was cute enough to pose with, but we've opted for the new IS C convertible as the official car of our dreams. Meanwhile many of the players are falling in love with the Lexus cars they were given for the week. And who can blame them?
