Woman streaks for Stricker (and Els and Couples) at the Presidents Cup [NSFW]

Just when you thought this Presidents Cup couldn’t get any wackier with the wigs, pet squirrel mascots, weather delays, three matches in one day, The Fanatics, over-served fans — we can now add “streaker” to the list.

As Steve Stricker and Ernie Els stood on the 18th tee in their Sunday singles match, they had a close encounter with an eye-opening visitor, to say the least. The unidentified woman ran through security and up the stairs onto the tee box and then back down across the 18th fairway.

[*FYI: Some of the pictures are kind of NSFW after the jump.]

The patriotic lady wasn’t *entirely* naked. She wore little heart-shaped American flags over her nipples and a tiny red thong. What was her purpose? It’s unclear, but a bemused Els believed her target was Stricker.

“She was after Steve,” said the South African, after beating Stricker 1 up, smiling. “We both looked the other way.”

Stricker, with his wife Nicki standing next to him, said, “She was yelling, ‘Streaking for Stricker.'” Understandably, Mrs. Stricker shook her head, though she seemed slightly amused, as well.

The streaker had moves and managed to dodge the cops.

“She was quick,” said Stricker. “I thought about tackling her for a second because the cops were after her, but then I thought, ‘Naw, I don’t want any part of that.'”

Added Els: “She was pretty fast. She came in off the tee, up the stairway, and the cop gave it about a 10-yard dash before he gave up.”

When she was eventually caught by the police, they put a jacket around her and presumably removed her from the property. She might be in a bit of legal trouble — actually, more like annoying legal fees and/or a fine.

While it was happening, I had been talking with Ellie Day and Ruby DeLaet, along with Jason Day and his pals, behind the 18th green, when we stopped to watch the lady dart across the fairway. It took us a while to process if what we were seeing — someone streaking across the 18th fairway — was really happening. It was bizarre.

Jason said, “I was telling (my caddie) Col (Swatton) that all this tournament needs is a streaker because of people drinking too much!”
