Beatriz Recari, Anna Rawson and the New-Look Hottie-Filled LPGA
Next time you feel the need to oggle some female talent - which, we should admit, is an ongoing urge - why not turn on the tube and flip to the the latest LPGA tournament?
No really. In case you haven't realized, the LPGA is the latest and greatest of women's sports organizations to hottify itself. This is no longer your lesbian great aunt's LPGA.
Still skeptical? Well, go ahead and click "Start Slideshow" to grace your eyes with the finest the LPGA has to offer.
10. Lorena Ochoa
Lorena Ochoa's hotness tends to fluctuate on occasion, but she's looking good here. Besides, she was there before all the upstarts on this list, which is worth certain considerations.
Yes, Ochoa may be retired, but she's fresh enough in our minds to maintain a spot in our hearts. She joined the LPGA in 2003 after topping the money list in the Futures Tour. She won 27 LPGA events in her career, and probably would have been a lock for the World Golf Hall of Fame if she had stretched her career to the requisite ten years.
Also, she was the first Mexican golfer of either gender to be ranked number one in the world. And being a national hero is always sexy.
9. Sarah Kemp
If you're more into the girl next door type, then Sarah Kemp is the female golfer for you.
The first Australian native on this list, Kemp turned pro in 2008 and has steadily moved up the ranks each year. She currently sits quite pretty at 85th on the money list.
Anybody is need of a sugar mama?
8. Paula Creamer
No, she's not an Air Force pilot. But if she was, their recruiting numbers would probably go through the roof.
Creamer has been one of the LPGA's top player since she joined in 2005, and she boasts 11 professional wins. She also makes seven figures a year. Now that's a sugar mama.
At last check, she was Tiger Woods' neighbor. This may or may not explain her frequent appearance in his video games.
Just throwing it out there...
7. Michelle Wie
That's right, boys. Michelle Wie is all grown up now.
Indeed, we all remember Wie from 2003 when she became the youngest person to ever make an LPGA cut. She was 13 years old. And later, she made the cut at the US Women's Open.
As such, it's hard to believe that she just joined the LPGA last year. She's won two events since joining, and is currently 8th on the Money List. Of course, she was already set for life when she signed contracts with Nike and Sony when she was 16.
She's a winner, she's rich, she's young, and she's hot. What more can you ask for?
6. Nicole Castrale
She's your classic Lone Star state beauty, which is always good.
Like Ochoa, Castrale has been around for a while. She joined the LPGA in 2002 when she was a 23-year-old spring chicken. And despite the fact that she won only a single event in her career to this point, and is all the way down at 127th in the money list, she keeps hitting the links.
Lucky for us, one supposes.
5. Morgan Pressel
No doubt you're still pondering what it is about that picture exactly that makes it so damn sexy.
The answer is simple: Morgan Pressel is in it.
The youngest ever winner of an LPGA major, Pressel is a native of Tampa, Florida. She turned pro in 2005 when she was 17, which took an appeal of the LPGA's 18-only policy. She proceeded to play part time while she was still earning her high school diploma.
Talk about a go getter. No doubt, that probably makes you want to go get her (nudge nudge wink wink).
4. Minea Blomqvist
A blond from Finland, the country right next to Sweden?
Get in line, friends.
Indeed, they sure do turn them out in that part of the world. This blond beauty joined the LPGA in 2006, and promptly finished in the Top 25 in the 2006 LPGA Championship. You've gotta love a girl who doesn't believe in wasting time, amirite?
Even more impressive is the fact that she played in several tournaments while she was pregnant in 2009. Unless, of course, you're one of those guys that thinks having kids decreases hotness.
3. Anna Rawson
Before she was a professional golfer, you might be surprised to hear that Anna Rawson was a model. Or you might not be. Just look at those stems, right?
It's probably a good thing that the native Aussie has her other talents to fall back on. Since joining the LPGA in 2008, she hasn't placed any higher than 55th in any of the Major tournaments she's played in. But she should be able to find some success if she manages to...
Oh hell, are you even reading this?
2. Natalie Gulbis
If you're a man (or woman) who prefers certain - ahem - assets, then please direct your eyes to the lovely visage of Natalie Gulbis... if you haven't done so already, of course.
You might recognize Gulbis from The Celebrity Apprentice, or perhaps from her own show on the Golf Channel, The Natalie Gulbis Show. Yeah, she's kind of a big deal.
The best part about Gulbis is that she totally realizes she is possibly the LPGA's quintessential sex symbol. The picture you're looking at is part of a swimsuit calendar she released in 2005, which was subsequently banned from being sold at the proceeding LPGA event.
So if you're into unapologetic foxy chicks, there you go.
1. Beatriz Recari
What is it about Spanish girls?
Maybe it's simply because they tend to look like Beatriz Recari.
Despite the fact you're probably too preoccupied with that picture to care, Recari is actually a pretty good golfer. As an amateur, she won both the 2004 Spanish Amateur Championship and the 2005 French Amateur Championship, and finished runner-up in the British Girls Amateur Championship in 2003. She turned professional when she was 18, and earned her first tournament victory in the 2009 Finnair Masters.
If you dig recent success, she just won her second tournament event this past weekend, placing first in the CVS/pharmacy LPGA Challenge.
Well, while she may be on the up and up in her professional career, she's already number one on this list.
