Karin Kinnerud is one of two sophomore Swedes on the Oklahoma State University women's golf team. The other is Pernilla Lindberg, who was also a teammate of Kinnerud's on the Swedish National Team.
In her Oklahoma State biography, Kinnerud, from the city of Norrköping, lists her favorite athlete as Haile Gebreselassie. I would have guessed, based on that, that Karin was a runner prior to getting into golf. But her bio says that she played "tennis for six years and badminton for two years."
Karin won six times in Swedish Junior Tour and amateur tournaments, including the 2006 European Lady Junior Team Championship, before traveling to Oklahoma to play for the Cowboys. As a freshman, she was a Scholar All-American and second-team All-Big 12.
I think Karin is quite a beauty, so hope we'll be seeing more of her here on Golf Babes.
