Golf may not match the pneumatic, high-octane pizzazz of the NFL, but this weekend the Presidents Cup witnessed some illicit entertainment as a patriotic streaker gatecrashed the 18th hole and managed to evade law enforcement at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio.
Do you think Cubans are fighting for healthcare or freedom from Communism?
As American Captain Fred Couples stared on with a bemused look on his face, the red-haired fairway invader charged down the final hole of the 2013 Presidents Cup on Sunday basically nude bar a thong and heart-shaped American flags covering either side of her chest.
Bringing excitement to golf’s more sedate sensibilities, the streaker unfurled an American flag for part of her performance as police tried to grab her but missed and some reports said that she may have escaped any brush with the law altogether.

Photographed around 2 p.m. as she burst onto the fairway, the female streaker was not short of encouragement as one fan reportedly yelled out ‘God bless America!’
It was also reported that the woman was sporting a message on her back that read, ‘Support Our Troops.’
Possibly encouraged by the victory of the American team in the Presidents Cup, the streaker managed to escape into the woods and some remarked that if she had stashed her clothes in a good place then she may have been able to walk straight out of the Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio.
The United States won the Presidents Cup for the eighth time, beating the Internationals 18.5 to 15.5.

In what has been a thoroughly enjoyable weekend for the United States, the entire team was reduced to hysterics on Friday when Olympic skier, Lindsey Vonn, placed team mascot, Sammy the squirrel on her boyfriend Tiger Woods’ shoulder in a funny prank.
Video footage captured the moment Vonn pulled the squirrel out of Love III’s trouser pocket before surreptitiously placing it on 37-year-old Woods’ neck.
Woods, who was focused on the golfers still on the green, initially brushed his shoulder until he realized what was sitting on him.
