Back in the day, when you thought of women golfers, hot women didn’t necessarily come to mind, did they? Sorry Nancy Lopez. There’s a new breed of hottie golfers on the professional circuit, and today we’ll be featuring Sophie Sandolo. You can see sexy photos of her below as well as read her biography.
Sophie is a 31-year-old French born Italian who makes her home in Monaco. She started playing golf at the age of 14 and turned professional October 7, 1999. She was a former tennis player and as soon as she took up golf it was “love at first sight”. At 16 she joined the Italian National Team. After her schooling, she came to the U.S. and got a full scholarship to UCLA. After one year, she decided to go back to Europe. In 1998 she came in second place in the European Amateur Championship in Holland. The next year, she became European champion. She finished 15th on the Order of Merit in 2005. Her highest finish on the Ladies European Tour was 2nd at the 2005 Catalonia Ladies Masters.
She received much publicity from a sexy calendar she published in 2005, and has continued to release a calendar every year. Sure, Natalie Gulbis put out a calendar as well, but that’s tame in comparison to Sophie’s. In 2007, Sophie made the list of sexiest women golfers on Golf.com.
“My first sexy calendar is intended to represent my love for golf, my desire for freedom and a touch of coquetry and I’m instinctively attracted by fashion, elegance and glamour.”
