Look, no one wants to admit it, but we all know it. Golf is monotonous and boring. It is the Ambien of sports. That is until something like this happens. In the greens of the Muirfield Village Country Club in Dublin, Ohio, onlookers patiently waited at the 18th hole when a woman clad in only patriotic pasties and a red thong zipped past like some kind of nearly-naked superhero.
American flag in tow, the notorious President's Cup streaker made her way across the field, garnering everyone's attention and throwing a little spice in an otherwise bland day. Golf fans began to chant “USA! USA!” as the bold streaker made her get away as frustrated police were hot on her exhibitionist trail.
The woman has now been revealed by Dublin police, as 23-year-old Kimberley Webster. Although her antics caught some laughs and excitement, she also caught a $99 fine for disorderly contact due to the fiasco. Kimberley Webster had easy access to the 18th hole since she was working as a temporary caterer in the hospitality tent, right near the 17th hole. She initially wanted to streak, knowing that Tiger Woods was watching, possibly hoping to trigger his infamous sex addiction. Unfortunately, Woods was not at her position at the 17th hole (so many possible tasteless joke opportunities there), so she decided against it and streaked in front of pro-golfer Steve Stricker instead.
Ditching the 17th hole, the President's Cup streaker sprinted towards the 18th hole with a voracity that even Usain Bolt would admire. Alas, it was time and she ripped off her rain jacket and dropped her pants and let her patriotism speak for itself.
After doing an interview with Stephanie Wei at Wei Under Par, people got a little insight into why the President's Cup speaker decided to strip off her clothes and make a beeline across the golf green. “I wanted to add a little excitement to golf because everyone seemed kind of depressed and like they weren't having any fun because of the weather. I hadn't been to a lot of sporting events...I just thought it would be interesting to try something like this.”
Webster also added, “The top streakers of all time were all men, so I decided to change that...It was golf-it's quiet and boring-and it was to make the top streakers of all time (as a woman).”
