From dubailadiesmasters.com: Monke wins Sorenstam’s final tournament by three shots in Dubai
I was reading the story about Annika Sorenstam’s last tournament when I saw a small picture of the winner holding a trophy that looked like a giant thumb.
It turns out to be a sculpture of a woman wearing a burqa. It’s ironic that women in tiny skirts playing the Western game of golf wins a trophy of a woman who’s face is totally covered and wouldn’t have the opportunity to play the game of golf.
Sorenstam unveils Dubai Ladies Masters trophy
It is ironic. An the strange thing is that many of the outfits the golfers wear in Dubai seem to be tinier and more revealing than at any other tournament. I’m sure this is partly because of the hot weather and partly because it’s the last tournament of the season, but there also seems to be an element of defiance.
Maybe that’s just my imagination but I’ve noticed it for the past couple of years and find it interesting. And, that trophy does look like a giant thumb. :o)
