Halloween Costumes of LPGA Tour Players

ANOTHER WEEK, ANOTHER WIN for Yani Tseng, her 11th worldwide title of the season. Tseng’s latest victory came at the Suzhou Taihu Ladies Open in China. Tseng closed with a 66 to win by seven shots. Sergio Garcia also won his second straight thanks to his one-stroke triumph over Miguel Angel Jimenez at the Andulacia Masters. And Rory McIlroy beat Anthony Kim in a sudden-death playoff to collect $2 million in first-prize money at the Shanghai Masters.

Now that we’ve covered all of that, let’s get to what’s really important today—Halloween costumes. Here’s what some lady professionals said they once wore (or didn’t wear) to go trick or treating.

Lincicome loves pumpkins.
Paula Creamer: California Raisin.

Natalie Gulbis: Genie. “My mom made the costume by hand. She hand stitched the puffy pants and tube top.”

Tiffany Joh: Village People. “In college, our team dressed up as the Village People. I was the Indian.”

Cindy LaCrosse: Dalmatian (inspired by 101 Dalmatians). “It was awesome.”

Brittany Lincicome: Big Pumpkin. (Because she loved pumpkins, of course. Who doesn’t?)

Paige Mackenzie: Football Player. She and her friend ran a play at every house.

Gerina Pillar: Puff the Magic Dragon. “I have a few first place ribbons underneath my belt in that costume.”

Beatriz Recari: None. “We don’t celebrate Halloween in Spain.” (But she did like to watch American Halloween movies.)

Karen Stupples: None, but her son is a Transformer this year.

Me? At a Halloween party on Friday night, I was the Green Hornet. My daughter was Kato. Others said we looked great.
