Golf Channel hottie Win McMurry is Michael Phelps’ girlfriend, we have confirmation on that now. Yesterday I got a lame pitch letter from some PR hack asking me to publish pictures of Michael Phelps wearing a specific brand of loafers. And to write an editorial about said loafers. YEAH, I’LL GET RIGHT ON THAT! BREAKING NEWS.
However, the letter said the pics of Phelps getting off the plane were taken by his girlfriend Win McMurry; so thus ends the speculation about the status of Phelps and McMurry. I get over a dozen LAME pitch letters like that per day, with zero news value. Yet this one delivered something worthwhile. But I don’t want Michael Phelps pictures in my inbox; I want Win McMurry pictures in my inbox. Here’s some in this post.
Phelps caddied for the Golf Channel smokeshow Win McMurry during the golf wives benefit outing. From what people said about their ESPYs appearance, and the fact that Michael was with her and her family at a recent gathering, you can take the question marks out of the: “Michael Phelps dating Win McMurry?” headlines now.
A few people reached the site today by searching for “golf channel hot anchor,” at least that’s what the stats report says. I assume they mean Holly Sonders, or Win McMurry, or both. For me, watching Golf Channel is about as exciting as being on hold with the cable company or paying utility bills online. So I’ve never seen Holly Sonders or Win McMurry on tv.
But I do realize that the “for the win” is already exceedingly shopworn and annoying.
So who is Win McMurry? She’s an on-air host, reporter, producer, model and author. As “Special Ops” for the network since 2010 assignments take her across the globe to report for Golf Central and Morning Drive, she hosts PGA Tour Primetime Thursday and Friday evenings.
She was named Golf’s No. 1 Beauty by Sports Illustrated’s GOLF Magazine and has won two Telley Awards for her work as a producer, writer and host.
