Natalie Gulbis, who lives in a home overlooking a fairway of Jack Nicklaus' Reflection Bay Golf Club at Lake Las Vegas Resort, is featured in the March issue of Golf For Women Magazine. As usual, she looks stunning and her charisma bursts off the page. "Am I ambitious? Absolutely!" she tells writer Dana White.
"I want to be the number one player in the world; I want to be in contention every week." And it is also revealed that she has an extra vertebrae in her back that allows for her funky swing. She jokes that the reason that Butch Harmon agreed to work with her was "just to see how somebody with such an unorthodox swing could be so successful."
Gulbis is one of the most recognizable faces–and bodies–in golf, due to her terrific play (Top 25 in the world ranking) and terrific beauty (she has a swimsuit calendar). LPGA supermodel Jan Stephenson, the "Natalie Gulbis" of her day, is quoted in the article talking about Natalie's opportunity.
"To be a sports superstar, you have to have both: the talent and the looks," says Stephenson, who in her day had a calendar and other sexy campaigns that gained worldwide attention. "In my day, we were fighting for the fact that we were professional athletes. Nowadays, if you've got it all, you need to flaunt it to make money."
Gulbis fine tunes her golf swing at the Butch Harmon Golf School located at Rio Secco Golf Club in Las Vegas, and is becoming more ingrained in the Las Vegas Golf community over time. She has attended the VegasGolfer Magazine Fairway Awards in the past, and is also featured in ads for the local Findlay Volkswagen dealership.
