OK, so maybe Pressel was more like a turtle than a turkey, but she still deserves mentioning. The LPGA star was given a rare slow-play penalty on the 12th hole during her semifinal match with Azahara Munoz at the Sybase Match Play. The mistake proved to be rather costly as Pressel would lose the hole and the match. To make matters worse, she didn't handle it very well. Three holes later, she accused Munoz -- to no avail -- of touching the line of her putt with her putter.
