2012 was supposed to be the year we finally got to justify our love for Leryn Franco. It was the year we were going to see Amanda Beard make that miraculous comeback and defy the odds to win another Olympic gold medal. This was also the year we were going to watch Natalie Gulbis earn the title of hottest female golfer once again.
But none of that happened. The closest we got to Leryn Franco was a 34th-place finish in the Olympic qualifying rounds.
There are plenty of other women that we thought so highly of in 2011. Plenty of beautiful young athletes, WAGs and reporters we all believed were heading in the right direction that simply just fell off the map.
Here are the 25 biggest names. Enjoy.
