SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Gary Christian tweeted that he “tried to look Gary Cooper handsome but I think ended up looking more like Gary Shandling.”

With any luck the final result was closer to the former than the latter. Regardless, Christian surely represented the PGA TOUR well during his photo shoot on Monday evening at the Fairmont Princess Hotel.

Christian is one of eight PGA TOUR rookies who will be featured in the April issue of Forbes Life. The others are Danny Lee, J.J. Kileen, Harris English, Jonas Blixt, Jamie Lovemark, Tommy Biershank and Bud Cauley.

Chrisian, whose Twitter name is @GazzaGolf1966, appears to have enjoyed his time as a male model. Here are two more of his tweets.

Completed the photo shoot very cool will be in Forbes life magazine in April Felt a bit dangerous in my outfit very conneryesque

Perfect combination moody yet brilliant French photographer, smoking hot model and overly excitable stylist
