“We’ve gone back to the fundamentals, and one positive from the injury is that her rehab has made a difference," Harmon said before the 2009 season, commenting on her dedication to fitness following back injuries in 2008. "Her core is now stronger and that is helping to create more torque in her swing. She is hitting her irons a club farther and also driving the ball longer. She is really looking forward to the season because she is so much stronger than she has ever been.”
Gulbis also continually posts bio blogs at NatalieGulbis.com, and discusses life behind the scenes of the LPGA Tour and her life. "Somebody recently asked me what my life would be like without golf," worte Gulbis in a recent post. "I didn’t even have to think about it. Life for me would seem pretty empty. Without golf I wouldn’t have traveled around the world. I’ve played in Niagara Falls and St. Andrews, Scotland where golf was born. I’ve looked in awe at Mt Fuji from a golf course, and … enjoyed it at the New Jersey shore."
