Natalie Gulbis born January 7, 1983 is an American professional golfer of Latvian descent who plays on the LPGA Tour.
Natalie Gulbis first became a golfer to watch when, at 14, she became the youngest to qualify for an LPGA tournament. By age 18, she was already a professional, winning over just as many fans with her sex appeal as with her swing.
Natalie Gulbis has been able to make a very good living playing golf all day -- we don't know how other people measure success, but that sounds impressive to us. She started at 4 and won the California State Women's Amateur at only 14. A few years later, she made it to the LPGA, and has been playing professionally since 2001.
While not readily known to the broader public, Natalie Gulbis has long been marked as an up-and-comer by LPGA fans. In fact, following interviews on ESPN and in Sports Illustrated, and photo shoots in men's mags like FHM, Natalie Gulbis (with the help of a business manager and two agents) is enjoying fame that is disproportionate to her standings in the LPGA. However, her 2007 LPGA win will definitely help bring up her professional success rankings.
