There was a red thong. Strategically placed red, white and blue stickers. And, a pair of flat-soled shoes - until she ran out of them. She also carried an American flag that billowed behind her, until it was grabbed by a police officer as she sprinted down the 18th fairway to laughter and chants of "U-S-A! U-S-A!"
Update: Kimberly Webster talks about why she decided to streak at the Presidents Cup.

The streaker’s appearance at the Presidents Cup at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin was commanding more Internet attention today than two dozen of the world’s best golfers.
Dublin police this afternoon identified the near-naked woman as 23-year-old Kimberly Webster of Worthington.
After being nabbed yesterday afternoon, and draped in a police officer’s coat, Webster was taken to the Dublin Justice Center and cited for disorderly conduct, a minor misdemeanor carrying a $99 fine. She can either pay the fine or show up in mayor's court on Oct. 22 and plead not guilty.
She was released from the police station — once her clothing was found at Muirfield Village (at the volunteer center off the No. 6 tee) so she could depart more modestly than when she arrived.
Webster did not immediately respond to requests for comment this afternoon.
In an interview with radio station WZLX-FM in Boston, a woman named “Kim” said she decided the Presidents Cup streaking stunt would be “fun.” She said she was native of the Boston area.
The woman said she moved from the Los Angeles area about a week ago to stay with a grandmother living in the Columbus area.
She said her grandmother thought her near-nude appearance was “funny,” while her mother was livid.
