Golf's glamour ladies in sexy charity calendar

TUNCURRY'S Sarah Kemp has stolen the front cover but Newcastle's Kristie Newton is still one of the glamour girls of golf in a sexy new calendar being unveiled by Golf Australia in Perth today.

Kemp is one of a handful of Australian players on the coveted US LPGA Tour and the 23-year-old is sure to turn heads after the sale of the calendar, which will raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Newton, 29, was given the honour of being on the front cover of the first calendar title "Top Shots", which caused controversy when it was launched in December, 2006.

The first calendar, featuring Newton, Kemp and Salamander Bay's Cherie Byrnes, caused a stir and it was banned from sale at the Women's Australian Open at Royal Sydney in January, 2007.

The stance was taken despite Golf Australia using it to launch the tournament and the fact it was used by GA to raise money for breast cancer research through the McGrath Foundation.

"Everyone will have their own opinions on it but it should be great and it is a great way to raise money for charity and lift the profile of female golfers," Newton said yesterday.

"This year it's toned down a bit but hopefully it will be just as successful. Last year it was for Jane McGrath, who sadly passed away this year, and this year it's for Make-A-Wish, which is a great cause and one of my favourite charities."
