Zanybandz invade the LPGA Tour

PITTSFORD, N.Y. -- Aaaargh! Those colorful silicone wristbands that have taken over preschools, Kindergartens and elementary schools across America have found their way onto the LPGA Tour. Never heard of Zanybandz? They're the Beanie Babies of 2010, only easier to find and a lot cheaper to buy. They're glow-in-the-dark "bracelets" that come in an array of colors and shapes, from animals to sports paraphernalia (though no golf-club shaped ones yet).


*Kids of all ages collect them, trade them and wear them all the way up to their armpits. And now they're adorning the wrists of LPGA players such as Paula Creamer and Jimin Kang. *
