Dunlop is marketing a naked lady tee. Yes, really.

By Luke Kerr-Dineen

If you're trying to impress your boss the next time you play golf together, you should probably stay away from these. That said, British manufacturer Dunlop's "Nudie Tees" will certainly generate a conversation.

The Nudie Tees, sold in packets of six, are the latest form of naked lady tees to enter the market. The product isn't necessarily new; you may remember Rodney Dangerfield's Al Czervik character in "Caddyshack" buying a set.

"These Dunlop Nudie Golf tees will spice up your game," the company says in its description of the product. "Add a little humour to your game or, why not get these as a fun present for someone who takes the sport a little too seriously."

Perhaps predictably, but not incorrectly, some people are using this as a stick to beat the whole sport with.

"It’s definitely sexist...you're hitting the ball off a headless, naked woman," one reader told the New York Daily News. "The online sale of such garbage is part of a larger picture, one in which sport is simply the easiest playing field for men to behave badly on," writes Jane Martinson for the Guardian.
