Professional golfer Sandra Gal's art takes her on a different course.






 

Known for her expressive style on the golf course, Sandra Gal also dabbles with creating real art, shown by her beautiful paintings at her home.






 

German golfer Sandra Gal may not have set the Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club (KLGCC) on fire during the Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia last week, but she’s hoping to bring some sizzle to the dance floor.

 

 



 

 Once I became aware of her, I began referring to her as “The Elegant Sandra Gal.” At six feet tall, she models and is a striking young woman. But she was so gracious with her time and thoughtful answers in my interview, I said that I was going to have start referring to her as “The Elegant and Gracious Sandra Gal,” hence the title of this post.





 

Sandra Gal is a 27-year-old LPGA pro from Germany who played her college golf at Florida and now resides in Orlando. She won the 2011 Kia Classic and finished third at this year's U.S. Women's Open.


 

German Sandra Gal, who displayed a stunning performance in the US Women’s Open 2012 and finished third on the leaderboard, has surged to the 29th position in the Women’s World Golf Rankings.
Gal has been a prominent player on the LPGA (Ladies Professional Golf Association), and her good performance in the US Women’s Open 2012 is said to be the main reason behind her improved ranking.



 

Key fashion point from the Open championship at Blackwolf Run -- women wear their golf shirts untucked, with a resulting flash of skin during the follow through.



 

An oddly quiet major Sunday called for a realignment of goals – at least for everyone not named Na Yeon Choi. That’s what happens when a player like Choi brings a diabolical Pete Dye design to its knees with a third-round, 7-under 65 and takes a six-shot lead into the final round.

 

Q.  Very good follow‑up to your first round.  What's your thoughts?
 

SANDRA GAL:  You know, I just really, really hung in there today.  I didn't hit a lot of greens.  I made up‑and‑down from everywhere and then I was lucky to roll in a few longer putts and I just stuck it out till the end.  I had to chip out on 18 and I hit a nice little pitch shot close.  That's about how my game was all day. 

 

Q. Sandra, you probably went the wrong way compared to where you thought you should go, and now you've got a little bit of ground to catch up. Assess your round and what's your chances heading into tomorrow? 

SANDRA GAL: You know, actually overall I don't think it's that bad of a round. The conditions were really tough out there, and I thought some of the tee boxes and pin positions were as well.
