Las Vegas, Nevada (April 24, 2011)–Natalie Gulbis has always been more than just an LPGA Tour star. Gulbis, who has lived in the Las Vegas Golf Region for several years, has become a celebrity on and off the course, the most recent evidence of this fact being that she recently hosted–and walked the runway–a poolside fashion show at Trump International in Las Vegas. On the course, Gulbis works with Butch Harmon at his school located at Las Vegas' Rio Secco Golf Club. —By Brian Hurlburt.
Gulbis is an avid user of Twitter and posted two TwitPics from her appearance. Click now to view one of these Gulbis photos. Also check out a nice photo gallery from the appearance at LasVegasSun.com. Gulbis has previous experience as a model because she released a calendar for several years.
But even though she was spending time on the runway, Gulbis didn't forget about her game. She spent time practicing with Harmon and also taking part in their legendary putting contests between the tour pros and staff pros who work there, including Butch himself. Gulbis recently sent the following tweet: "Finished practice with a 6 person putting match. Butch, his instructors and whatever pros are in town that week always play … Butch won and one of his PGA tour players was in the game too … Butch schooled both of us as he danced off the putting green."
Gulbis was also busy at a practice session at TaylorMade headquarters in the San Diego area before attending a Padres game where she also threw out the first pitch. TaylorMade created an 80-foot replica of the new R11 driver that serves as the right field foul pole. "Just saw The Taylor made driver by right field foul pole!!!!! Wow!! looks AMAZING!!!" Gulbis tweeted from PetCo Park in downtown San Diego.
