Sandra Gal is a winner on the LPGA Tour. Gal earned her first LPGA victory at the 2011 Kia Classic, outdueling Jiyai Shin in a memorable final-round battle. And outdueling Shin is a really great way to make your first win even more special.

A 6-foot tall German, Gal is not a long-ball hitter but more of a finesse player. Her rookie season on the LPGA Tour was 2008 and her previous high finish was fifth. On the money list from 2008-10, Gal finished 68th, 46th and 67th.

The photo above, by the way, is from Gal's photoshoot for the "Wilhelmina 7" project (which, as far as I know, is no longer operative).
