At the 2009 Wendy’s 3-Tour Challenge, the LPGA team was clearly the most photogenic. ~ After all, the team consisted of Cristie Kerr, Natalie Gulbis and Suzanne Pettersen... and you just don't get much more photogenic than than.
Well it turns out they were also the best golfers yesterday, as Ms. Kerr's 4-under 32 led the ultra-blonde team to a combined 6 under on the final nine holes. That resulted in a win of $300,000... which along with their $100,000 purse from the opening nine, allowed the women to claim the title.
The event took place at Rio Secco Golf Course, overlooking the Las Vegas skyline. and the photogenic threesome was competing against some pretty stellar male competition: Stewart Cink, Fred Couples and Bubba Watson made up the PGA Tour team and and the Champions Tour team consisted of Fred Funk, Jay Haas and Nick Price.
The biggest names in golf have played in the Wendy's Three Tour Challenge over it's 18 year history: Jack Nicklaus, Annika Sorenstam, Phil Mickelson and Nancy Lopez...to name just a few... and the event has raised nearly $30 million for the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. Wendy's 3-Tour Challenge will air nationally on ABC on December 19th and 20th on ABC.
Watching the girls beat the boys? Sounds like must see tv to me.
