Mark down this name.
That is her above from her days working for Golf Punk magazine. She’s a 4 handicap. Has a body that makes grown men open their wallets and has her sights set on becoming a famous name in the golfing industry.
Take this report from the British Open where Sports Illustrated Senior Writer Alan Shipnuck was tracking her like a bloodhound chasing an escapee.
Once the sun went down, the simulator was where sodden, rowdy lads gathered to be humiliated in closest-to-the-pin contests versus Sophie Horn (right), who writes a column for the sassy U.K. magazine GolfPunk under the pen name Golf Nurse. Horn is a 10 and a 4 â€” the former on the Bo Derek scale of hotness, the latter her handicap.
Thomas Bjorn’s caddie, Dominic Bott, was so besotted with Horn that he practically rubbed the sequins off her gold mini-dress while trying to dance with her to a Queen tune, but Horn is a no-nonsense young woman who spent Open week trying to further her career in the golf industry. “For me this is a wonderful opportunity to network,” she said. After chatting up members of Justin Rose’s entourage, Horn snagged an invitation to play in a fund-raising pro-am that Rose hosts.
Sorry to break the news to you, Alan, but Golf Punk magazine has been out of business for about a year.
Pffft, as if that matters. The real news here is that Sophie Horn wants to be in your consciousness. NOW.
Our friends at Sportress of Blogitude introduced us to Ms. Horn this week and to say we’re smitten is an understatement.
We figure after a few more blogs pick up the story you’ll be seeing Sophie gracing Maxim U.S. or maybe even doing a Sports Illustrated online shoot. Golf needs such fun even if Ms. Horn isn’t a professional golfer. Somebody has to have TV time for her.
Give her a microphone, send her to the Ryder Cup and sit back and watch your pageviews go nuts. Do we care what Corey Pavin has to say? Nope. Put Horn on our Internet screen where she’s asking Pavin questions and our asses would be like doctoral students in their last semester of college.
For now Sophie will just have to keep doing her thing in the U.K.
Personally, Busted Coverage would hire her to do a few things here in the States but this damn economy sucks and she would probably empty our bank accounts.
Your move, Horn.
