Ming towers over Player, Gulbis, Creamer at pro-am


Gary Player and LPGA pros Natalie Gulbis and Paula Creamer met a highly (literally) impressive guest Saturday at the Mission Hills World Celebrity Pro-Am in South China.

They could only stare in awe at former basketball pro Yao Ming. And judging from Ming's face, he gets that a lot. 

Gulbis and Creamer are tall in their own right (both are 5-foot-9). But the two look bite-sized standing next to the retired Houston Rocket, who towers at 7-foot-6.

The Mission Hills World Celebrity Pro-Am hosted nine professional golfers this year — including Player, Suzann Pettersen, John Daly and Mark O’Meara — and 27 additional sports and entertainment stars such as Allen Iverson, Boris Becker and Michael Douglas.

As for Ming, we would love to see the custom sticks that guy carries. A belly putter as a regular putter, perhaps?
