LPGA Tour sensation Natalie Gulbis lives and plays at Lake Las Vegas Resort, and is one of the golf's biggest superstars. And if you didn't know, she keeps in touch with her fans via a journal on her website. Recent postings discuss her swing sessions with Butch Harmon, Justin Leonard joking about her tough swings and other inside information.

In her journal she wrote:

"Practice is going great! I am working on tightening everything up for the season. After Singapore I came back to the school with a very closed club head. Trying to break out of a bad habit is very frustrating. For the first few days I barely made contact with the ball – and if I did it was because I had the face open again. Last week PGA Tour player Justin Leonard was working with Butch (Harmon) and he jokingly asked me if I had hit the face of the iron in the last hour – its fine now, but change is never easy!"

Also, it looks like there might be another of the Gulbis clan on the way up the playing ranks. Gulbis' 12-year old neice is following in her footsteps, and shows the same desire for greatness. Natalie wrote about Sara in the same January 28 journal.

"Sara is 12 and we are attached at the hip. She works out with me in the a.m. and spends time hitting balls at the course. Last time she would even woke up at 5:30AM to make sure she could hit the gym and Starbucks with me. She is adorable. She is always decked out in the newest Adidas outfits – and we just ordered her TaylorMade clubs. While I am in Australia my dad is going to help her with her swing. She's really good already!"
