BEDMINSTER, New Jersey – A flashback to sports history in 1978 is noteworthy for many team accomplishments. The Pittsburg Steelers won the Super Bowl, Boston Celtics won NBA championship, Montreal Canadians won the Stanley Cup and the Cincinnati Reds won the World Series.
That year also produced one the most prolific individual athletic performance’s ever when Bruce Jenner (born 1949) won the gold medal in the decathlon in the 1976 Olympic Games. Jenner was named Associated Press Athlete of the Year and was America’s most popular athlete capitalizing on his fame, as well as good looks. He made more money from winning one event than any other athlete before him and was widely sought after for commercials, promotions, and public appearances and made a spectacular living simply being Bruce Jenner.
Bruce Jenner was married three times and had several children in the decades that followed. He met Kris Kardashian in 1990, and five months later they were husband and wife. After promoting a happy family life for many years, in 2007 the reality television series “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” aired for the first time.
The show focused on the lives, relationships and adventures of the blended family headed by Bruce Jenner and Kris Kardashian. An instant reality-show sensation ended in 2021, while Jenner and Kardashian divorced in 2014.
In 2015 Bruce Jenner came out publicly as a transgender woman at the age of 65 and changed his name to Caitlyn Jenner. According to Forbes magazine Bruce a/k/a Caitlyn Jenner’s accumulated net worth, not just since publicly coming out as a transgender woman, is over $100 million.
Caitlyn Jenner showed up Thursday July 28 at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster (NJ) to play golf in the LIV Golf Invitational Bedminster Pro-Am Tournament. She was paired with professionals Paul Casey and Ian Poulter and amateur (social media influencer) Hailey Ostrom.
During the 4 and 1/2 hour round the team was observed having a grand time – joking, laughing and engaging with friendly yet sparse attendees. Caitlyn used the forward tee box and was seen conversing with LIV Golf Invitational CEO Greg Norman.
