Natalie Gulbis
USA

Natalie Gulbis, who grew up in California, turned professional in 2001 after a fine amateur career, becoming the youngest player at the age of 14 to qualify for an LPGA tournament - a record since been broken by Michelle Wie. Natalie is rated one of the emerging talents on the LPGA Tour, claiming her maiden victory at the Evian Masters in France in July 2007 before being part of the victorious US team at the Solheim Cup against Europe. Before her breakthrough win, Gulbis had struggled to find her top form last year as she was hindered by injury.
