Not long ago, on a bright, blustery mid-October day, LPGA Champion Cristie Kerr hit the fairways of Liberty National Golf Course with a couple of decidedly exceptional playing partners.
Australian megastar Kylie Minogue, and her Spanish boyfriend Andres Velencoso, an actor and model, were in New York for business - The pop princess did three extravagant shows at NY's Hammerstein Ballroom. But the thing is, both are really into golf, so a round at the breathtaking Liberty National course was THE perfect activity during their limited downtime.
