Is Cara Banks a playa?

sprcoopsprcoop Tucson, AZMembers Posts: 803 ✭✭
I can't find any info on her playing golf or even a swing. But... she puts in 4 out of 6, almost 5 out of 6, with a little more pace from about 15 feet, with cameras in her face.

Did she play high level somewhere?

    I’m guessing she doesn’t mind the cameras given that she is on TV nearly every day.

    I doubt it. She's an attractive young woman with a British accent. That's all you need for the golf channel.

    She definitely plays. She used to host Golf World which was on UK television and there were segments there when she was out on the course.



    Also, if you check her Instagram page out, there are posts on there which confirm that. Her husband plays too. No idea how good or otherwise she is. Cannot believe how tall she is in real life.

    ridiculous. She's quite good at what she does and this because she's a woman, because he/she's a minority..crapola needs to stop. Is the only acceptable employee without question a male? a white male?

    No, I think you maybe reading into something..that`s not there. I think the OP is really wondering if Cara has a golf background as far as playing ability goes, or is she just another pretty face. He clearly noticed a bit of touch in her stroke, and likely doesn`t know her background.

    ^^^^^^^^^^ This. Also, wondering why it got moved to this forum from "General". Not really tour related unless she was on one and Google did not show me that.



    "She definitely plays. She used to host Golf World which was on UK television and there were segments there when she was out on the course.

    Matty,

    Thanks, I'll need to see if I can find any Golf World clips. I'll have to figure out how to check Instagram, I don't have an account... yet.

    I wish I had dreams like that. It seems my dreams are, for the most part, laden with situations of me running toward someone or something.



    The one “healthcare” dream I can remember is sitting in a room with a phlebotomist. I was fully dressed, as was she. She had one of those “control syringes” with the 2 finger holes and she said “this is what the file says to do.” I kept saying that I was here to give a sample.

    She kept repeating – “this is what the file says to do.”
