Pro-golfer Natalie Gulbis says Trump taught her to be fearless
If speeches by politicians, businessmen, actors and Donald Trump’s family members weren’t what you were looking for at a national political convention, Trump on Tuesday offered this: Natalie Gulbis, a Sacramento native and 492-ranked golfer on the L.P.G.A Tour.
In a brief, pre-prime time address, Gulbis described Trump as a “generous” mentor at a time when she felt overlooked and “treated differently as a woman.”
After meeting Trump at a golf course when she was 21, Gulbis said Trump encouraged her to “think of myself not as a female athlete, but as a businessperson.”
Her remarks were reminiscent of an article she wrote on Golf.com in June, “The Donald Trump I know.” In that piece, Gulbis rejected what she called “political rhetoric about Trump’s misogynistic ‘war on women,’” describing the Republican presidential nominee as “gracious, generous and inspiring.”
