Democracy is alive and well at playboy.com, where votes are being tallied in a contest to determine, as the site puts it, "which [of these nine LPGA] luscious links lynx should doff her kitschy golf togs for Playboy." To translate, the winner will be offered a contract to pose for the magazine once the polls close on Saturday. Jill McGill ("above, currently second to Carin Koch in the voting) and Kris Tschetter (seventh) deconstructed the competition for SI.
SI: So what do you think about the poll?
JM: I think it's great. It's flattering to have been chosen, and it's great exposure for the tour. It's certainly been the talk of the locker room.
SI: Have you voted for yourself yet?
JM: No. That's a silly question.
SI: Will you pose if you win?
JM: It depends.
SI: On what?
JM: I'd have to talk to my sponsors and make sure this wouldn't portray them in a light they're not comfortable with. Then there's the issue of how much skin they'd want me to show, the money.... Hey, Kris Tschetter just walked in. Let me give her the phone, and you can ask her if she'd pose.
KT: I don't have the body for it! But Jill, you do.
