Hunter's Blow Up Fantasy

Thought this Doug Ferguson AP piece was cute:

Hunter Mahan is single, making him the only American player without a female companion. The U.S. wives made sure he wasn’t alone.

During a quick shopping spree — likely the idea of notorious prankster Barbara Nicklaus — they bought the 25-year-old Mahan a doll they named “Monique.”

“She came up on the elevator,” Scott Verplank said. “They had Hunter come down to see if it was OK if this woman came up to the room. So the doll came up. He didn’t take that too good, I don’t think.”
