Day 3 of our series on the cast members of Big Break Sandals Resorts brings us to Carling Coffing.

Regular readers of Golf Babes have met Carling before; we featured her back in October 2009, when this Ohio girl was sporting her Cincinnati Reds colors.

You might also have seen Carling in one of the video segments she's done for the Duramed Futures Tour and Golf Channel Web sites. She joined the Futures Tour in 2008, played a full schedule in 2009, and at the time of this writing has played in four tournaments so far in 2010. Last year, she made 13 of 17 cuts and finished 61st on the money list. Her best finish to date on the Futures Tour is a tie for 11th.

Here's what the Golf Channel said about her in its news release announcing the Big Break Sandals Resorts contestants:

Carling Coffing (24, Middletown, Ohio) – A sweet, Midwestern young lady on the surface, Coffing is a tough competitor who has overcome enormous odds to achieve her dream to be a professional golfer. Coffing was diagnosed with Type I diabetes at age 5, and after years of giving herself dozens of shots every day, she switched to a diabetic insulin pump in 2008, which is connected to her 24 hours a day. Coffing now competes full-time on the Duramed FUTURES Tour.
