Congratulations Natalie for winning the Evian Masters.
For several years now, Natalie Gulbis has been one of the top players in women’s professional golf. In 2006, she placed sixteenth on the money list, and over the past three years has had twenty top finishes. And with her pinup swimsuit calendars, Natalie is one of the most recognizable players on tour.
But she hasn’t been able to pull off a win. With her incredible looks, she was in danger of becoming golf’s Anna Kournikova.
No more. At this past weekend’s Evian Masters, Gulbis shot a final round of two-under-par 70 for a four-under 284 total to get into a playoff with Jang Jeong. Gulbis got a birdie on the first extra hole for the win.
Now that the monkey is off her back, I think you can expect to see Natalie make regular appearances in the winners’s circle.
