Professional golfer, Anna Rawson, becomes GoDaddy girl number four. Is this the right PR move for GoDaddy?
From golf.com’s Press Tent –
GoDaddy.com, a web domain registration service sometimes in the news for its racy commercials (think Danica Patrick in the shower during the Super Bowl), announced that the LPGA’s Anna Rawson is the company’s newest spokeswoman. Rawson joins current spokespeople Patrick, poker player Vanessa Rousso and model Candice Michelle.
Rawson, who also models, made headlines in February when, in a radio interview to promote the LPGA, she said, “[Fans] still think we’re at 25 years ago when the tour was full of, you know, a lot of dykes and unattractive females nobody wanted to watch.” Ouch. She later apologized.
And in case you’ve been wondering what the Aussie has been up to, she’s blogging on GoDaddy.com. In the first installment she talks about modeling during L.A. fashion week for David Alexander and eating Korean kimchi tacos at the Alibi Room after the show.
Rawson is teeing it up at this week’s J Golf Phoenix LPGA International, where she’ll play in the pro-am with GoDaddy.com’s CEO and founder Bob Parsons and rocker Alice Cooper.
