Natalie Gulbis was born on the 7th January 1983 in Sacremento, California. She is a professional golfer who plays on the U.S. based LPGA Tour. She started finding interest in the game at the early age of 4. By the time she was 7 years old she had won her first tournament. In three years when she was only 10 years old, she started breaking par. She played in her first LPGA tour event as an amateur at the age of 14. She turned professional at age 18 after playing for one season on the women's golf team at the University of Arizona. She did not win a tournament in the first five years of her professional career but still finished sixth on the LPGA money list in 2005 with over $1 million (U.S.) in earnings and played on the winning United States Solheim Cup team. She placed in the top-10 in four consecutive major championships from the 2005 LPGA Championship to the 2006 Kraft Nabisco Championship. Her first professional win came in 2007 at the Evian Masters. She is considered to be a sex symbol in the LPGA. When she released a calendar for 2005 just before the 2004 U.S. Women's Open the LPGA banned its sale at the event, saying it was inappropriate.
