LPGA star Natalie Gulbis to speak at 2016 Republican National Convention

Natalie-Gulbis-Evian-Masters

At the 2016 Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio, GOP fans and political observers alike can expect an eclectic list of speakers, largely talking on behalf of presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump.

LPGA golfer Natalie Gulbis will be one of those speakers, as she appears on the convention speakers list, according to the New York Times. Gulbis will be one of the speakers designed to “broaden Mr. Trump’s demographic reach."

Gulbis and Trump have a long-standing relationship, one Gulbis wrote about in a Golf magazine piece called, "The Donald Trump I Know."

“He believed any notion that I should accept less money than a PGA Tour player for appearances or endorsement contracts was just plain wrong,” Gulbis wrote. “His advice proved invaluable for me in my career, and I owe much of my success to his idea of staying true to my convictions and not being afraid to rock the boat.”

Gulbis, who won the Evian Masters in 2007 before it became a major, has also participated on Trump's "The Apprentice" reality show.

The Trump campaign will rely heavily on sports figures to vouch for Trump on the Cleveland stage. Not only will Gulbis speak at the convention, so too will Ultimate Fighting Championship president Dana White.
