Christina Lecuyer

Christina Lecuyer

Although the Lecuyer name has long been one of Canada’s biggest names in golf, and her two younger brothers have both had successful amateur and professional careers, Christina Lecuyer had no interest in playing the sport herself until the age of 18, when she was working at a country club and playing rounds with co-workers seemed like the only way to fit in. She picked up the intricacies of the game quickly, and when she entered her first tournament – the 2002 Edmonton Ladies Amateur Championship – a year later, she emerged victorious. Several other top finishes in Edmonton and Alberta tournaments attracted the attention of numerous college recruiters, and in 2003, Christina enrolled at the University of Central Arkansas in Conway, Arkansas.

Christina’s outstanding collegiate career included five tournament wins, 24 top ten finishes, First Team All-Conference honors from 2003 through 2006 and twice being recognized as the Southland Conference Golfer of the Week. She was a two-time All-American honorable mention and, after graduating Magna Cum Laude in 2007, ESPN selected Christina as a Second Team Academic All-American.

In the late 1990s, Kim Halsey — better known as Houston — was one of the biggest stars in the adult entertainment universe. Born in Long Beach, California, Houston moved freqently as a child, as she, her twin brother and her mother traveled across the country to be near her Army Officer father in Virginia and, after her parents divorced, settled in the Los Angeles area. After starting out as an exotic dancer and transitioning into adult films in 1995, Houston rose to fame with her appearances on The Howard Stern Show and her 1999 film, World’s Biggest Gangbang 3: Houston 620, in which she shattered the previous world record by having sex with 620 men in one day.

In 2004, Houston was inducted into the AVN Hall of Fame, after which she moved to Las Vegas, where she obtained her Real Estate license and retired from porn. In 2008, she was diagnosed with stage three melanoma. After enduring surgery and chemotherapy, the blonde bombshell is now cancer-free.
