Below are Nicole Castrale and Paula Creamer:

Who Wants to Play Golf with Blair O'Neal?


That's a silly question, isn't it? Who wouldn't want to play golf with Blair O'Neal? Thanks to Blair and Cobra Golf, you might have the chance - if you are lucky enough to win the sweepstakes.

You might have seen the photo above of Blair (perhaps with a different color bikini) in the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue, or in recent issues of Golf Digest or Golf Magazine. You can see even more photos of Blair from this photoshoot here.

 So what's this sweepstakes business? Blair is a member of Cobra Golf's Tour staff. And to help promote its new Cobra AMP Cell driver, Cobra is giving away a golf vacation to California that includes one of the new drivers plus - and this is the important part! - a round of golf with Blair. See the magazines for more info, or you can enter online here. Be sure to read the fine print, the most important of which is this: The sweepstakes closes on March 15, 2013. So get your entries in soon.

Sharmila Nicollet

Sharmila Nicollet posted this image on her Twitter page (@MissNicollet), along with this comment:

Watch for Sharmila on the Ladies European Tour in 2013, where she'll be playing on the strength of her Top 30 finish at LET Q-School. And don't worry, the only thing about her that bites are her wedges into greens.
