Lisalla Montenegro. 33-24-34. Brazilian supermodel.
First had dreams of being a doctor but grabbed the easier bucks of modeling due to her obvious attributes. Currently the face of Maybelline Cosmetics. Married Angel pitcher C.J. Wilson in Dec 2013.
Oh, C.J.--a noted car nut--recently picked up one of these in Dallas.
For us shallow envious types, at least Wilson got blown out in the baseball playoffs against the Royals. Yet, I'm sure both his bride and new ride will salve any wounds. Question is would you rather have her or the car? Guessing both are equally high maintenance...
Remember the guy who filed a lawsuit over the accusation of him sandbagging his handicap?
Now it looks like he's gonna lose more than face. Like $630 large for court costs.
Talbot lost the lawsuit when the judge found that the words “handicap building,” although defamatory, were not libelous because the certificate was not published to a third party. Talbot then said he was “forced to appeal” because he couldn’t afford what he said was a 500,000 euro (approximately $630,000) legal bill.
“I may have lost the fight, but I haven’t lost the battle,” Talbot told the Irish Independent in 2012.
But now, it seems he has. The appeal was seen by the High and Supreme Courts in Ireland over 83 days and was settled earlier this month over what the Supreme Court called a “simple matter.”
According to the Irish Times, Chief Justice Susan Denham “urged improved judicial management of cases” and better use of court resources. The court stuck with the initial ruling, stating that the general rule of “costs follow the event” -- the losing party pays the winning party -- applied to the case.
We at AG Magazine are big fans of the cart girl--especially those gracing our pages. Well a business subsisting on cart girl services was recently brought to those discerning billionaires on Shark Tank to raise a little working capital.
Sadly, the panel bit back but didn't invest via GolfChannel.
“We provide the refreshing company of a beautiful woman that is also a great caddy,” Tarmey said. “We drive the cart, keep the score, tend the pin, rake the sand traps, read the green, and on top of that, we’re your personal cheerleaders to do backflips for you when you get birdies.”
Even I might pay for someone to do backflips every time I get a birdie, but for now I’ll keep my money where I can see it – in my closet, of course – because at no point during Tarmey’s pitch did I see backflips.
Sharks Mark Cuban and Daymond John both said they don’t like golf (as if they know a good thing when they see one!); Lori Greiner foresaw a lot of “issues”; Robert Herjavec said Caddy Girls was in the “hustle stage” and not the investment stage; but Kevin O’Leary offered Tarmey the $100K … for 50 percent of her company.
“I’m not giving him half. That’s like a divorce,” Tarmey so eloquently noted.
The day after appearing on the show, Tarmey told Myrtlebeachonline.com that she had received a spike in interest and about 50 independent investment offers.
If The Caddy Girls’ story doesn’t spike your interest, perhaps their calendar will.
Donald Trump is a lot of things (good and bad), but he's certainly not shy of confidence. Here's a revealing interview on Golfdigest.com that substantiates the pros and cons.
Trump: Like I bought a place called Pine Hill that's right next to Pine Valley, a place called Pine Hill. It's now called Trump National Golf Club Philadelphia. It is as good as Pine Valley, if not better.
Do you really believe that?
Yes, I really believe it. And if you went there, you would say it, too. And everybody that goes there says it.
You're rebranding it Trump Turnberry. Could you say a little bit about that?Right, so my brand is a very hot brand...
What does your brand stand for?It stands for quality and luxury. If I didn't use my name, Turnberry would not be nearly as successful as it can be. This isn't an ego thing; this is business. I've got the hottest brand in the world.
At this point, a somewhat fractious exchange ensues. One Trump tactic is to cite unnamed sources who agree with him. At a press conference in July, for instance, when asked about renaming Turnberry, Trump said: "I actually asked some people that are very important in Scotland, although I won't get them in trouble by saying their name, but I've spoken to very important and very powerful political people, and I said, 'What do you think of the idea of Trump Turnberry?' Everyone said that they would love it."
I decide to employ a bit of trumpery on Trump by citing unnamed sources who disagree with him. I tell him that I asked people in the golf industry what they think the Trump brand stands for, and offer an example of one that was less than flattering.
Trump bristles. He demands to know the source. He says, "If you put that in, it's no longer a good story, it's not even a fair story" and adds that the unnamed person is "gutless" for not going on the record. Trump says, "There is nobody more aesthetic than me."
Just ask him...
Golf is thought of as a game of honor and decency and respect. Some people thought your derogatory comments about Pinehurst during the U.S. Open weren't in the spirit of the game.OK, I'm glad you asked the question. I have great respect for Mike Davis [USGA executive director] and the USGA. But I'm an honest person—I'm a very honest person—and I think that Pinehurst on television looked horrible. It was very bad for golf. And many players thought it, but they just don't want to say it. Bubba Watson was the only one that had the courage to speak his mind. First of all, turtleback greens. I am a good golfer—I just won another senior club championship, so I'm fairly happy about that—but turtleback greens are a disgrace, and Pinehurst has many of them. It's very unfair when you hit a perfect shot to the pin and you end up with a 30-yard chip shot. It's ridiculous. That has nothing to do with golf. The television ratings were abysmal.
There were some other factors. Tiger Woods wasn't there. The Stanley Cup was on, the World Cup...I don't care. The ratings were abysmal. My wife couldn't care less about golf, but she loves watching the Masters. So she comes into the room where I'm watching, and she said, "Oh, darling, that's so sad; oh, darling, what happened to the course? Did they have a fire—what happened? Oh, that's so sad." She felt sorry for the course. You know what it looked like? It made it look like they don't have money to water the grass. I have nothing against Pinehurst, but I think the greens are ridiculous, and the look on television was terrible. Golf is very much about beauty. And they took the beauty away.

Rory McIlroy announced he will take time off from golf to prepare for a trial against Dublin-based Horizon Sports Management Ltd and two other companies, Gurteen Ltd, with a registered address in Malta, and Dublin-based Canovan Management Services.
Today it was announced that no agreement had been reached between McIlroy and Horizon despite mediation talks and the case will proceed to a full hearing next February.
"I'm going to need time away from tournament golf to prepare for the trial over my legal dispute with Horizon Sports Management," Rory said today.
"The court-directed mediation process failed over the weekend to resolve the issue."
McIlroy will sit out the forthcoming BMW Masters or the WGC - HSBC Champions and is expected to return at the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai on November 20.
McIlroy claims a representation agreement signed by him in December 2011 is invalid and unenforceable on grounds including alleged undue influence. The agreement, he alleges, was signed when he was aged just 22, inexperienced and without the benefit of independent legal advice.
The defendants deny the claims and have counter-claimed for some US$3m dollars allegedly outstanding under the agreement for off-course revenues. They also claim additional monies are owed under both the December 2011 agreement and a later agreement of March 2013. They are also claiming damages for alleged past and continuing breaches of both agreements.
Oh the perils of being a #1 ranked player. Everyone wants a piece of you.
Tiger Woods' agent Mark Steinberg announced his prize client is comfortably hitting full shots after mending from surgery.
The sport could use a buzz since the start of the wraparound season has offered anything but.
Woods has been limited to working on his short game, but he began hitting full shots last week.
"The doctors said he could hit golf balls again, and he's listening to his doctors and to his body," Woods' agent, Mark Steinberg, told USA Today. "He will keep listening to his doctors and body.
" … He's feeling pretty good."
There is speculation that Woods will return to competitive play at his Hero World Challenge begins Dec. 4 at Isleworth Country Club in Orlando.
Well, of course. Yet another mind-boggling feat of hole-in-ones--this time by an 81-year-old geezer. These sagas hardly surprise me anymore, yet does give this ace-less golfer hope. One can always dream, right?
Dom DeBonis had to wait a long time between his first and second ace. Like, 45 years.
It is rare enough that in a span of 33 days, Mr. DeBonis, 81, had four holes in one on four courses in three states.
Even more remarkable is that this Sharpsburg native had a hole in one on three consecutive days while playing golf on a buddy trip in the Myrtle Beach, S.C., area — a feat so improbable the National Hole-in-One Association had never attempted to calculate the odds of that happening.
“I just couldn’t believe it,” said Mr. DeBonis, who went with 11 other friends to the Grand Strand region. “The guys were going bananas. They said we got to buy lottery tickets, so we went and bought a bunch of lottery tickets.”
“There was a tree in front and a shadow over the green, but I said, ‘Oh, my God, I think it went in,’ ” Mr. Debonis said. “We couldn’t see it. One of the guys said, ‘I think it’s in.’ So we walked up to the hole and there it was. I just couldn’t believe it. It was the most memorable week.”
Age doesn’t seem to be a factor for Mr. DeBonis or anyone in his golfing family.
His brother, Al, who lives in Green Tree, is 93 and still plays golf four to five times a week. Older brother Nick, who is 97, goes to Florida each year with Al and “we play as many courses as we can.”

Ian Poulter came to the defense of Ryder Cup teammate Sergio Garcia over recent comments by 2008 Ryder Cup captain Nick Faldo. Faldo is consistently blamed by most (except any public complaints by the players) for his mismanagement of the team.
Poulter took issue with on-air comments Faldo made about Sergio Garcia during the Golf Channel’s Friday telecast from this year’s Ryder Cup at Gleneagles, in which the Europeans soundly defeated the Americans, 16.5 to 11.5. Faldo said Garcia, who went 0-2-2 in 2008, was “useless” and claimed to have benched the Spaniard for what he called a “bad attitude.”
"Sergio puts a brave face on it but the rest of the guys are fuming. I'm shocked that he has said it. It's highly disrespectful. It's a cheap shot and it's the worst possible timing.
"It makes me laugh. Faldo is talking about someone being useless at the 2008 Ryder Cup. That's the Ryder Cup where he was captain. That's the Ryder Cup where the Europe team suffered a heavy defeat.
"And he was captain. So who's useless? Faldo might need to have a little look in the mirror. I have always got on great with Faldo in the past and I have a great deal of respect for everything he has achieved but this feels like sour grapes. It feels like a guy who is still bitter that he lost in 2008.
"Faldo has lost a lot of respect from players because of what he said. There were plenty of things a lot of the players were unhappy with at Valhalla but none of us criticised him. He may find that begins to change now."
