Sandra Gal, winner of the 2011 Kia Classic, says to improve impact with your driver, move the ball up in your stance parallel with your front foot.

Germany's Sandra Gal was voted the world's "hottest golfer" by readers of GolfDigest.com. "To be honest, I don't consider myself the most attractive girl out there, but it's nice to see a lot of people participated in that voting," Gal told Golf Channel. "Hopefully, it can bring more attention to the women's game."

 

"I don't really work on that image, maybe it's something that just comes naturally," Gal said. "I did a bit of work for Callaway and their catalogs, but I'm really focused on my game and to be the best athlete I can be. That's always going to be my No. 1 focus."





 

Sandra Gal won the Kia Classic on the 2011 LPGA Tour and she was also a Captain’s Selection for the winning European Solheim Cup team.

ORLANDO, Fla. – Sandra Gal understands sex appeal is part of her growing popularity as an LPGA professional, but she wants to be known primarily for her accomplished game.
She told GolfChannel.com Tuesday that she doesn’t mind being labeled the “Hottest Golfer” on the planet, as long as it promotes the women’s game.



 

After two months of online voting and 16 head-to-head matches we finally have an overall winner in the GolfDigest.com Hottest Golfer competition. Twenty-six-year-old LPGA Tour player Sandra Gal from Germany, didn't just defeat 23-year-old men's champ Rickie Fowler for the ultimate crown -- she annihilated him. Gal got a whopping 99.6 percent of the more than 80,000 votes cast. This may be an indication of the gender of our voters, but it also speaks volumes about the popularity of this former ballet dancer from Dusseldorf.
