Happy Birthday, Natalie Gulbis!
Happy birthday, Natalie Gulbis! The LPGA fan favorite turns 31 today. The 2007 Evian Masters winner joined the professional ranks in 2002 but played in her first LPGA event in 1997 when she was just 14. Gulbis was a member of the boys’ golf team in high school and went on to play one season at Arizona. The Sacramento native, who has earned nearly $5 million in prize money in her career, hasn’t experienced as much tournament success as some of her peers, but she has been one women’s golf’s most famous faces thanks in large part to her various endorsements and photo spreads. She also has made television appearances on “Celebrity Apprentice” and “CSI.” Gulbis was a member of the United States' winning Solheim Cup teams in 2005, 2007 and 2009. Gulbis, who spent the early part of 2013 battling malaria, enters the 2014 season ranked No. 110 in the world.
