She doesn't play in the LPGA and she's not quite yet a household name in America, but that's not stopping Sophie Horn from quickly becoming the most popular female golfer on the planet.
This sexy Brit is involved in more projects right now than you'd consider taking on in a lifetime, and she still manages to look this good.
Click ahead to see more exclusive pics courtesy of SophieHorn.com and find out more about what she's up to in 2011.
First of all, get it through your head that Sophie isn't just your average pretty girl who is just okay at a sport. She'll kick your butt and enjoy doing it.
Sophie grew up on a golf course and learned the ropes early on. She's got a competitive streak in her as well as she won a staggering amount of tournaments in England, including the Midlands Championship.
She also won the Norfolk County Championship three years in a row, including the under-21 championship. Oh, did I mention that she was only 15 when she won that one? Girls got chops.
It's impossible to peg Horn with just one job title. Try and take a deep breath and say all of the things she does in one breath:
Golfer, model, television presenter, personal trainer, golf coach and even journalist.
I don't know how she finds the time to do all that and STILL run around in my dreams.
As you can see, Sophie is not your ordinary golfer. It was her combination of skill and good looks that caught the attention of Golf Punk magazine in 2005.
We're big fans of Golf Punk over here, especially for helping bring Anna Rawson to our attention as well, but Sophie did more than just look good for them. She became their official "Golf Nurse" where she wrote a column and tickled our fancy by taking more sexy pictures of herself.
Still not sure exactly what a Golf Nurse is. But if it's anything like I'm imagining it right now...that's just awesome.
Sophie's been busy lately with the Playboy Golf Tournament, which recently finished off their season in L.A.
She tells us that she loves working with Playboy and is really excited about their relationship. It has really helped her visibility in the US.
If you're looking for a girl that plays golf like a pro, but looks like a bunny, that's not an easy thing to find. That makes Sophie one hell of a catch.
Sophie is a natural in front of the camera, so of course she's going to start moving into television. She's done some online videos in the past, but according to Sport Magazine, she is involved in a new show for Sky Sports called Golfing World.
Look, Sophie, we understand that you're a bigger deal across the pond, but we need more of you here in the States. Do you have any idea how boring our golf coverage is? Let's get you in a booth with Jim Nantz talking about The Masters.
Boom. Million dollar idea.
Oh yeah, and Sophie is also launching her own brand of underwear.
Geez, talk about burying the lede.
It's just going to be called "Horn" and I really hope that Sophie is going to help model it like she's doing here.
I've got some ideas on names for the different kinds:
- Tempting Tiger
- The Short Game
- Big Hitter
- Hole In One
I have to say, I'm enjoying Sophie as a blond. I first found out about her when she was a sizzling brunette, but this is a good look for her.
As for her ambition, in addition to all the things I've talked about so far, she's also got her much-anticipated 2012 calendar coming out and is slated to be working with some very big name advertisers that I'll let you find out on your own.
To keep up with all things Sophie, check out her blog where she gives you all the insights to what has to be one of the most fun lives in sports.
And of course, for all of your quick Sophie takes, follow her on Twitter. She is a prolific tweeter and she deserves way more followers for the gems she tweets out, as well as the pictures (seriously fellas).
Go check her out at @SophieHorn.

We expect 2011 to continue to be a huge year for Sophie and beyond. I hope she never gets too big to talk to Bleacher Report. Maybe she'll come check out the office some time in San Francisco.
You hear me Sophie? That's a standing invitation.
