8 Steamy American Female Golfers And 8 Internationals: Who's More Attractive?

It may never be the first sport to pop into someone’s head when you talk about gorgeous women, but golf is tailor made for it. The sport is played during the summer months and in tropical locations, so the sun is always bright.

The other advantage golf has to most other sports is that it’s truly international. There is just as much competition coming from America as there is coming from Europe and especially Asia. For the golfers, the competition is on the golf course and in the rankings, and an added bonus could be to observe who looks best on the course (and off it for that matter).

The women on this list embody the best that their home countries have to offer. Not only are all of them stars on the golf course, winning millions of dollars and hundreds of tournaments, but they’re all stars in a different way: They’re the most attractive women golf has to offer.

While half of the women on this list are from the USA, the other half are from different countries around the world. There are representatives from all parts of Europe and Asia. This list is neutral, so it’s up to you to decide, who has the more attractive golfers; the U.S. or the world?

22 Lexi Thompson (America)

Lexi is an American legend after being the youngest girl ever to play in the US Women’s Open at only 12 years old. She quickly made history again by by becoming the youngest-ever winner of an LPGA tournament when she was only 16. She didn’t stop there as she was also the second-youngest winner of a Ladies European Tour event. She eventually won her first major championship in 2014 at only 19 years old.

When she’s not tearing it up on the golf course, Lexi is tearing up social media with stunning selfies by the pool and videos of her workout routine. Lexi is still a professional and the young phenom doesn't look to be slowing down any time soon. This is a strong opening case for the states.

21 Jenny Shin (Korea)

Jenny Shin has been playing golf since the age of 9 and became a professional as a 19-year old in 2011, making an immediate impact by making cuts and finishing in the top 25 on multiple occasions. She’s since gone on to win multiple tournaments and is currently in the top 50 for points, driving accuracy, money made, birdies and has even scored a hole-in-one.

Her golfing abilities aside, this Asian beauty is known for her bright smile and friendly personality. After being an active golfer and playing multiple worldwide tournaments since her rookie year, Jenny decided to take 2017 off. Based on her $3-plus million career earnings it’s safe to say it’s well earned. We can't wait for her to make her return to the links in 2018.

The original golf Wunderkind may be growing older, but her beauty remains the same. At only 10 years old, Michelle Wie became the youngest player to qualify for a USGA Amateur Championship. At one point she was also the youngest winner of the US Women’s Amateur Public Links and the youngest to qualify for a LPGA Tour event. She’s also famous for entering Men’s PGA Tour events and currently has the record for the lowest shot total by a woman in a men’s event. Even though she missed the cut, history was made.

Don’t let her early success fool you, Michelle is an active participant in the LPGA having won tournaments in 2009, 2010 and as recently as 2014. She enjoys showing off her stunning beauty through her social media accounts and on the golf course.

18 Gaby Lopez (Mexico)

There's only One Rule☝🏼: be GRATEFUL & ENJOY the little things in life •

A post shared by G a b y L o p e z (@gabylopezgolf) on

Gabriella (Gaby) Lopez is a professional golfer and olympian hailing from Mexico City. She began her career with a bang by winning the Mexican Amateur Championships in 2013 before heading off to college in the USA. While in college she was the top girl in three events and in 2015 was the runner-up in the NCAA National Championships, one year later she would officially turn pro. 2016 would also see Gaby record nine top-25 finishes, 22 made cuts and a invitation to represent her country in the 2016 Olympics.

Aside from being a golfer, Gaby is very proud of her Mexican heritage and is a huge supporter of LoveArmyMexico, a Gofundme drive which pledges to help build houses for 100 for the country. Not bad for a 24-year old.

17 Jessica Korda (America)

Off week feels 🐬🐳🐠🐟

Jessica has only been a professional on the LPGA for six years, but has won a tournament almost every year. In 2016 she had an almost 83% success rate in tournaments (making 19 cuts out of 23), five top-10 finishes (including a 2nd place finish) and consistently shot career lows. Her total career earnings passed the $4 million dollar mark this past year and she looks to continue her strong streak into 2018.

A good-looking golfer who is constantly improving, what could be better? How about another Korda? Jessica’s beauty and talent is a family trait because her younger sister Nelly is also a professional golfer, having become a rookie this past year. Time will tell if she ends up as successful as her older sister, but when it comes to looks, the two Korda’s have already made the cut.

16 Brooke Henderson (Canada)

For a country that’s known for being so cold, who knew Canada could make something so hot? Brooke Henderson is an award-winning Canadian golfer who has been active since 2015. Although her time as a professional golfer is short, she’s made quite the impact. Her career earnings are already over $3 million and has six LPGA Tour Victories, including one major. She represented her home country in the Rio Olympics, finishing in the top 10. In 2016 she was an astounding 30 for 31 in tournament cuts made and had the most starts on Tour (31), had the second-most top-10s (15) and finished third on the LPGA Official Money List.

She may be from a frigid place, but her bright blonde hair and beautiful smile will melt the hearts of any man.

15 Cheyenne Woods (America)

The first thing you have to know about Cheyenne is that despite her last name, her father isn’t who you think it is (that guy is actually her uncle). But even if you take Tiger out of the equation, Cheyenne is a good golfer in her own right. After having a successful college career which saw her being a two-time All-American and a multi-time ACC Team Champion, she officially turned pro in 2015. She’s placed in the top-25 in multiple tournaments with a career best T13 at the 2015 Final Qualifying Tournament; this gave her an LPGA membership for 2016.

Leave it to someone from the Woods family to combine a fierce competitive nature with a strong, natural beauty. Hopefully, she can restore some honor back to the Woods name.

14 Olafia Kristinsdottir (Iceland)

A post shared by Ólafía Kristinsdóttir (@olafiakri) on

Olafia has the distinction of being the first Icelandic golfer ever to play on the LPGA Tour, and she’s bringing her traditional Icelandic beauty with her. After being the top Icelandic golfer when she was only 16, she debuted as a rookie at the ripe old age of 25. However, Olafia has already made an impact by earning over $200,000 in her rookie year and was able to play in LPGA events by finishing second in the LPGA Qualifying Tournament and placing well in the seven events she played on the Ladies European Tour.

Prior to being a professional, Olafia played golf at Wake Forest where she owns the 14th lowest scoring average in the ACC for the 2011-21 season. Hopefully her transition to the LPGA leads to more Icelandic beauties making the journey over.

11 Paige Spiranac (America)

Come on, no list with attractive female golfers can be complete without Paige Spiranac. While she hasn't been the most accomplished golfer on the LPGA tour, Spiranac has gained popularity through her steamy social media accounts and her attire when she's in action. Unfortunately, the LPGA instituted a ridiculous dress code, and Spiranac was one of the most outspoken critics of it. Here's what Spiranac wrote in a guest piece for Fortune.com:

"By labeling women as looking “unprofessional” when showing cleavage or shorts worn under a skirt, the LPGA is perpetrating the outdated stereotypes about the connection between what a woman wears and her morals, as well as insinuating that women do not have control over the perception of their bodies, but rather that they must bend to the every whim of the male gaze."

10 SHARMILA NICOLLET (India)

You probably didn't expect an entry from India, but here she is. The Indian wonder is one of the lesser known golfers to American audiences on this list, but she certainly is a big name in her home land. At the age of 18, Sharmila Nicollet became the youngest Indian for the Ladies European Tour. She was only the second Indian to qualify for the Ladies European Tour. She's still on the European Tour, but after getting a glimpse of her, many will be hoping that she soon qualifies for the LPGA. Nicollet stands at an imposing height at 5'11, but that only means there's more of her to admire. She certainly accomplished a lot in golf during her teen years, let's hope in her mid 20s, she can reach another level.

9 Paula Creamer (America)

The blonde golf veteran may not be as spry as some of the girls on this list, but her longevity is just as impressive. After winning Rookie of the Year honors in 2005, Paula has gone on to place multiple top-ten finishes, won 10 tournaments (including a major) and has amassed over $10 million in her career. Despite her age she’s still a major player on the golf course, netting her 100th top-10 finish just this past year. Creamer

She isn’t just about championships for herself. Every year she hosts Paula 4 Kids, a charity tournament which benefits The First Tee of Sarasota/Manatee counties in Florida. To the disappointment of many male hopefuls, Creamer is off the market, as she married her husband Derek Heath, a pilot and former Air Force veteran, back in 2014.

8 In Gee Chun (South Korea)

A post shared by In Gee Chun 전인지 (@ingeechun_dumbo) on

In Gee Chun has a phenomenal playing record to go along with her hot look. Despite having her rookie year only a year ago, she has already amassed over 30 top-ten finishes and has made almost $3 million dollars in her short career. This has all culminated in her being in the top 10 in both the Rolex and the Race to CME Globe rankings and winning the 2016 Rookie of the Year award. She’s won LPGA events, she’s won two majors and represented her country in the Olympics. By the way, she also won the US Women’s Open title in 2015, which means she won a major event as an amateur. Not too bad for only being 23. Who knows what else she'll accomplish.

7 Natalie Gulbis (America)

Natalie is one of the the older members of this list, both in terms of age and golf experience, but she’s also the only one to have her own calendar. After her starting out strong in her rookie year of 2002, Natalie slowly began to take her focus off of golf and put it towards her charity and off-course events. However, when she was active, she was a golf force to be reckoned with. She is a three-time Solheim cup participant, a William and Mousie Powell Award winner and won the Evian Masters 2007 on a single-hole sudden-death playoff.

When she’s not playing golf, Natalie can be seen at the beach. Whether she’s surfing or just doing yoga, you can’t keep the girl out of a bikini!

At 21, this British beauty may be young but she’s already leading the Ladies European Tour in top-10 finishes for 2017. She’s also in the top ten for eagles and birdies shot, is already one of top 50 golfers in the LET and the 2017 Order of Merit winner and was voted Players’ Player of the Year. The only thing missing from her impressive resume is a LET victory, which is only a matter of time due to her stellar play and constant improvement.

Right now she’s only concentrating her golf efforts in Europe and for the LET, however she does have her LPGA card through her qualifying school. Expect to see her in more domestic tournaments after she’s conquered Europe. Please, let it be soon.

2 Cristie Kerr (America)

Coming in as the oldest and most accomplished member of this list, it only proves that beauty has no age limit. After her rookie year in 1997, Kerr has gone on to win 20 tournaments and has a untouchable 174 top-10 finishes under her belt. Don’t let her age fool you, she’s just as active and formidable on the course now as she was 20 years ago having won three tournaments over the last five years, including one in 2017. She’s in the top 10 in both the Rolex and Race to CME Globe rankings and has a career winning total of over $19 million.

Off the course, Cristie spends time with her husband of 11 years, her son Mason and running her multiple charitable events. She’s a huge advocate for women’s breast cancer awareness. She has her own tournament for the cause, the proceeds from her personal wine go to the cause, and she even opened up The Cristie Kerr Women's Health Center, which provides detection, healing, support and recovery services to breast cancer patients. Talent, beauty and charity truly have no age limit.

1 Azahara Munoz (Spain)

Tracy Wilcox/GOLFWEEK

The Spanish beauty is tearing it up on the Rolex rankings having won one career tournament and posting a whopping 38 top-ten finishes. She’s been able to amass this crazy-high record by being a machine on the course. Azahara has make the cut in over 20 events since her rookie year in 2010. Not only is she participating in so many tournaments, she also represented Spain in the 2012 Olympics, participated in three Solheim Cups and won Rookie of the Year honors in 2010.

What’s the secret to her success? Azahara credits being surrounded by good friends while on tour for helping her remain sane and focused while away from home. She also credits her husband of two years for keeping her happy and healthy.
