Gulbis remains friends with Roethlisberger
Monday, February 14, 2011
OAKMONT, Pa. – LPGA golfer Natalie Gulbis played a round of golf with ex-boyfriend Ben Roethlisberger and called the troubled Steelers quarterback "a great guy."
Gulbis played golf Tuesday with Roethlisberger at Laurel Valley Golf Club in Ligonier, a former site of the Ryder Cup and PGA Championship. On Wednesday, she visited Oakmont Country Club, where the U.S. Women's Open will be played July 8-11.
Gulbis and Roethlisberger were linked romantically several years ago, but the relationship did not last.
Roethlisberger was suspended by the NFL for six games after being accused of sexually assaulting a Georgia college student in March. He was not charged in the case, but was punished under the NFL's personal-conduct policy.
Gulbis says she'll continue to cheer for Roethlisberger and the Steelers.
