Topless Streaker Disrupts US Open - Winner Furyk Not Distracted
OLYMPIA FIELDS, Ill., June 17 /PRNewswire/ -- In an eye-catching incident, a topless woman ran up to golfer Jim Furyk with a pair of roses in the final round of Sunday's US Open. She was sporting the Net address of Internet casino GoldenPalace.com tattooed on her back. (Photo: http://www.newscom.com/cgi-bin/prnh/20030617/NYTU136 ) "I was definitely caught off guard," Furyk said. "I turned around and she was already up on top of me. I just wanted to back off from the situation and get back to playing golf." The streaker did not adversely affect Furyk, who went on to win the tournament. "It didn't distract me at all. It was more embarrassing to have to deal with than anything." Although a number of reporters and photographers witnessed Brittney's streak, it has been falsely reported that the tattoo she was wearing read "USA." when in fact it was plainly obvious that it was the Net address of the cyber casino "GoldenPalace.com." This is the third streaking incident this month displaying the casino's ad tattoo -- the first was at the UEFA Cup Final, the second was at the ATP French Open -- but GoldenPalace.com decided to use a more recognizable body billboard to sport their now-infamous ad tattoo for the US Open. Celebrity model Brittney Skye (www.BrittneySkye. com) said she was excited to be part of the event. "I've seen their ad tattoos before," said Brittney, "and I thought it would be a great opportunity to get some exposure and be part of a new and exciting marketing trend." GoldenPalace.com has made headlines before with their innovative Henna ad tattoos. Since Bernard "The Executioner" Hopkins was first tattooed for his title fight against Felix Trinidad in September 2001, the casino has backed dozens of high-profile boxers and celebrities.
