Golf Girl Nikki Garret – She’s Not a Slut, Guys
Well, we’ll see how the case goes for Nikki. She’s undoubtedly acquired lots of new fans since this story broke, the problem is that many of them are probably not at all interested in her golf game. Oh well, guys are sooo immature. We all know that, don’t we?…
Nikki Garrett had a great showing at the LET’s Tenerife Open de Espana, finishing solo fourth. That ties Garrett’s best finish of 2012 so far. She also was fourth at the Ladies Irish Open, plus the Australian has a seventh-place finish at the Prague Golf Masters.
