10. Morgan Pressel
Career Achievements: Pressel had quite the amateur career, qualifying for the US Women’s Open at the age of 12. She finished tied for second at the US Women’s Open at the age of 17. She became an LPGA member in 2006, at the age of 17 after appealing to the LPGA to, in her case, drop their normal age requirement of 18. She has since won two tournaments, including a major.

8. Michelle Wie
Career Achievements: Michelle Wie isn’t just one of the more controversial female golfers in the world, she’s actually one of the more controversial athletes period. She has shattered just about every age related record there is (youngest person to make the cut in a US Women’s Open, youngest to win a USGA adult event, youngest to play in a PGA Tour event, etc.), but many think she would have been far better served to play some college golf, or to have spent some time on the Futures Tour instead of using sponsor’s exemptions to play in LPGA events. However, she is still only 18 years old, and it seems pretty certain that her future remains bright, assuming golf is what she truly wants to do with her life.

7. Laura Baugh
Career Achievements: Named Golf Digest’s 1972 “Most Beautiful Golfer”, which I’d say uniquely qualifies her for our list. Unfortunately, Baugh never did win an LPGA event, probably because of the many difficulties she had with alcoholism over the years.

6. Cristie Kerr
Career Achievements: After a very successful junior career, Kerr turned pro in 1996. She’s had a nice career, with 13 total professional wins, as well as a US Women’s Open Championship. Cristie is also a breast cancer activist, and appeared on an episode of The Apprentice to help out her friend Donald Trump.

5. Erica Blasberg
Career Achievements: Blasberg plays on the LPGA. Despite being a fairly average golfer thus far in her career, Puma has made her the face of their worldwide golf marketing campaign. Which is a totally understandable move.

4. Paula Creamer
Career Achievements: Creamer has been on the LPGA tour for just four seasons, but she’s already 26th on the all time money list, having earned over $5 million. She has nine professional wins, and was named the LPGA rookie of the year in 2005.

3. Jan Stephenson
Career Achievements: An iconic sports figure, at least partially because of the magazine cover you see above. Earned over $3 million in her time on the LPGA Tour, winning 16 tournaments, three of them majors.

2. Anna Rawson
Career Achievements: Rawson is an LPGA Tour player, and also a model. She played collegiate golf at USC, before turning pro in 2004, and making the LPGA Tour in 2007 following some time spent on the Ladies European Tour.

1. Natalie Gulbis
Career Achievements: Natalie Gulbis was our hottest female athlete ever, so it’s probably not a surprise that she’d end up number one in our hottest female golfer countdown. Gulbis has been on the LPGA Tour since 2001, but had been playing in Tour events as an amateur since the age of 14. She’s currently the biggest female golf sex symbol in the world, selling calendars, signing numerous endorsement deals, and even penning an advice column for FHM magazine. We think that all of this makes her a worthy number one in our list of the 50 hottest female golfers of all time.
