First Win for Sandra Gal

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).

But recently on social media, she started spelling it "Hyunju Yoo." And we figure she knows better than anyone how to translate the Korean spelling of her name into an English spelling.
