Andia Winslow is a model golfer. Make that: She's a model and a golfer. And you can expect to be seeing more of her.

From the same family that includes NFL Hall of Famer Kellen Winslow, Andia grew up in Washington state but played her collegiate golf at Yale. Academics are important at Yale, of course, and they were (and are) important to Andia: She graduated with a degree in sociology, and also found time at Yale to direct a documentary film.

A member of the golf team from 2000-2003, one of her teammates for a year was Jeehae Lee.

After college, Andia pursued golf, fitness and modeling. Her interest in fitness resulted in training with USA Track & Field for a time, and she eventually founded her own company. You can find workout tips from Andia - some tailored specifically for golfers - on her YouTube channel.

It's not hard to understand why the fashion industry would be interested in Andia. She's done commercial, print and runway modeling. Her most recent runway show was at Phoenix Fashion Week, which is where the image below was taken.

And golf? Andia played in the 2006 LPGA Ginn Open as sponsor invitee. But she was forced to step away from competitive golf for personal reasons, and only now is getting back into the swing. Andia told me that she plans to start playing tournaments again in 2011: the Futures Tour, Canadian Women's Tour, state opens, and qualifying for the U.S. Women's Open.

Her Web site - andiawinslow.com - recently launched, and you can also check out her blog.
