In May of this year, I wrote about promising, young LPGA golfer Erica Blasberg, who was found dead in her home in Henderson, Nevada, the day she was supposed to leave for a tournament in Alabama.

LPGA golfer Erica Blaberg was found dead in her home in Henderson, Nevada on Sunday afternoon, the day she was supposed to leave for a tournament in Alabama. While no cause of death has been determined, her parents don’t think the 25-year-old would ever take her own life and the police have not said whether they suspect foul play, but she was known to be in good health. Blasberg, a former All-American, joined professional golf in 2004 and was on her sixth tour with the LPGA.

She hadn’t reached her peak yet.” She’ll be laid to rest in Corona, CA on May 19. [CBS News] Keep reading »

However! In all fairness to Hooters, whether Tiger is in town or not, doesn’t a bikini contest seem like something they’d be doing anyway? [TMZ.com] Keep reading »
