Fortunately I resisted the urge to ask whether she would celebrate a birdie by discarding her pink golf shirt. (Who can forget the Nike ad when Kevin Garnett asks, "What's up with the shirt?" after Chastain knocked one home in foosball.)
But I was silly enough, after seeing Chad leave a birdie try short, to remark: "Nice putt, Sally."
I immediately apologized, to which the ever-supportive Brandi replied: "That's OK. I know some guys named Sally."
The beginning title of her 2004 book is, "It's Not About the Bra" but it's impossible to spend four-plus hours with Chastain and not ask: Where is it?
The black sports bra is back with its original owner after a brief stay at the Sports Museum of America. After the museum went bankrupt, Chastain actually had to fight to reclaim it.
Now it's framed next to the SI cover, a reminder, Chastain said, "of the perfect moment you dream about as a kid."
