The Presidents Cup streaker seems to be enjoying her 15 minutes of fame.
Since running across the 18th hole at Muirfield Village on Sunday afternoon wearing nothing but a G-string and a couple of strategically placed stickers, 23-year-old Kimberly Webster has been tweeting out photos of herself and retweeting messages about her antics on her brand new Twitter account (@PresCupStreaker).
She also did an interview -- presumably her first -- in which she revealed just what makes someone want to strip down to next to nothing and streak across a golf course during an internationally televised event with an American flag while shouting things like "Streaking for [Steve] Stricker," "USA, USA" and, of course, a reference to Howard Stern's producer, "Baba Booey!"
“I thought, imagine if someone streaked through this, it’d be hilarious," Webster told Stephanie Wei of Wei Under Par.
And there you have it. Webster, who lives in Columbus, Ohio, while helping to care for her grandmother, has been temping for a catering company that was working at a tent near the 17th hole.
Her original plan was to streak in front of Tiger Woods, but she was afraid the U.S. would seal the victory before then. So she set her sights on pulling the stunt in front of Steve Stricker.
"I thought ‘Streaking for Stricker’ kind of rhymed,” she said.
Um, OK. After baring (almost) all for the world to see, Webster was eventually caught by the police, who handed her a $99 misdemeanor ticket and a sheet to wear back to pick up her clothes. She turned it into a toga and has since tweeted out photos of herself in the outfit.
"I wanted to add a little excitement to golf because everyone seemed kind of depressed and like they weren’t having fun because of the weather," she said. "I hadn’t been to a lot of sporting events.… I just thought it would be interesting to try something like this."
