Sandra Gal

The people have spoken, and spoken quite loudly. Our inaugural GolfDigest.com Hottest Golfer contest featured several down-to-the-wire matches since it began in November, but the final proved to be a laugher, with women's winner Sandra Gal running away from Rickie Fowler in our concluding Battle of the Sexes. Gal received more than 80,000 votes to earn the distinction as the fairest golfer of them all -- a testament to our user demographics (more men voting for Gal than women voting for Fowler), the power of social media (Gal actively recruited voters on Twitter), but most of all, Gal, a 26-year-old German who is looking to build off her first LPGA win in last year's Kia Classic. Gal's win in the Hottest Golfer contest might not have counted toward the official money list, but it certainly can't hurt her self esteem. -- Sam Weinman
