Another Calendar Too Hot to Handle

Remember a couple years ago when the USGA banned sales of Natalie Gulbis' calendar at the U.S. Women's Open because they deemed it too hot?

There's a calendar due out any day now featuring golfers from the ALPG (Australian Ladies Professional Golfers) tour. The calendar was shot to raise money for breast cancer research, with funds pegged to go to Australia's National Breast Cancer Foundation.

We've been getting updates on this calendar from one of the golfers featured in it, who implied that it was pretty hot. Well, it turns out it's too hot for the NBCF. A print run of 20,000 was taking place last week in hopes of getting the calendar out in time for this past weekend's Australian Open.

But midway through the run, the NBCF called a halt to it, saying they didn't want their logo used with the calendar.

The calendar is still going to be printed, but now its release has been delayed a bit. Proceeds will still benefit breast cancer research, but now the McGrath Foundation.

Among the golfers featured in the calendar are Nikki Garrett, Sarah-Jane Kenyon and Kristie Newton.
