Natalia Ghilzon is one of the 12 women who make up the cast on Big Break Atlantis. And like the winner of one of the most recent Big Break series, David Byrne, she hails from Windsor, Ontario. Here's a blurb about her from the Golf Channel:
One of the most athletic competitors on the series, Ghilzon will look to follow in the same footsteps as fellow Windsor native David Byrne, who won the series 15th season – Big Break Indian Wells. After overcoming wrist injuries, Ghilzon enters 2012 healthy and with a new found confidence.
The Windsor Star newspaper points out that Ghilzon beat out 3,000 applicants to make the cast. How? She's not really sure, but it involved being tailed by a camera crew as the selection process neared its conclusion:
"They just told me I'd made the semifinals in November," Ghilzon said. "Then they sent a camera crew to follow me around doing my daily routine Dec. 3 and they told me I'd made the show. I was speechless."
Ghilzon played collegiate golf at Oakland University and turned pro in 2011. She played two events on the Futures Tour last year.
