LPGA’s Gulbis remains friends with Roethlisberger

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.
