One of the great problems for women\'s golf is how to get their players more popularity. Professional golf is a winner\'s world, so most know who Annika Sorenstam is, and you can actually see up and comers like Lorena Ochoa starting to get their just due in the press.
Then there\'s the next layer of female golfers who\'ve earned popularity before they\'ve earned victories. The media blitz that accompanied Michelle Wie made her impossible to ignore, while Natalie Gulbis\'s physique and outgoing personality has put her on many radars in the U.S., while Sophie Sandolo has used the same winning combo in Europe.
But being a female professional golfer and becoming well known is no easy feat if you aren\'t battling for the \'W\' week in and week out. What\'s the answer? Well, actually, you got us there. We do know one thing, however - the most famous golfers in the world are not professionals. And in many cases they aren\'t even that good.
Because if there\'s any sport that can get the best of Hollywood to participate, it\'s golf. From Oscar winners to B actresses, they\'re out on the links. And those that don\'t play, want to, and want to be good at it. Recently, Halle Berry let it be known she\'s ready to let it rip on the course.
\"I\'m not good at it and it eats me that I can\'t master it. I even had lessons with David Leadbetter,\" said Berry. \"I just want to be a decent golfer and have the guys be happy that I\'m with them, not like, \'Oh, damn, here comes Halle.\'\"
Well, you can bet she\'s heard \"Oh damn, here comes Halle,\" before in a much more positive sense. But the once (and hopefully never again) Catwoman, is one of many famous ladies who\'ve taken to a shine to the golf course.
