From Sweden, With A Cute Skirt And Killer Swing

International jet-setter. Techno music lover. Pro golfer. Anna Nordqvist brings tons of quirk, enthusiasm, and energy to the LPGA. Born and raised in Sweden, Anna made her way to the U.S. for university, attending Arizona State.

Wholly dedicated to her golf career, Anna spends 3-4 hours per day between the course and the gym. She works not only on her swing, but her physique, which is well-suited to her love for cute course attire - from high shine belts to bright polos.  Her spare time is happily spent traveling, tweeting, and rocking out to her favorite songs. Anna finished 2nd in her final tournament of the year, rounding out a great year and promising plenty more show-stopping play in 2011.
