Russian professional golfer Maria Verchenova will look to rebound from two consecutive missed cuts when she competes in the Carta Si Ladies Italian Open. The season thus far has been a bit of a mixed bag for Maria as she has only made 4 of 12 cuts. However, she has also gained valuable experience playing both on the European Tour as well as the LPGA Tour.

We do know one thing for certain, Maria will be sure to look every bit the part of star in the making, as she continues to create a buzz with her attractive outfits and great persona.
"I always like to bring something extra special to the golf course, so if I'm wearing sexier more stylish stuff like a shorter skirt or a nice tennis-style dress and people notice then great" - Maria Verchenova

Best of Luck Maria!

Is Maria Verchenova the new (pretty) face of women's golf?
By Kyle Kosteron May 14, 2009


When's the last time you watched women's golf for any extended period of time that didn't include you falling asleep on the couch after watching the college basketball game that preceded it?

I'll go out on a limb and say it's been a while.

Maria Verchenova, a young Russian golfer may give dudes everywhere reason to tune in soon, as she attempts to become to golf what Maria Sharapova is to tennis.
She is not only proving herself a fine player in her own right, she is also paving the way for other young Russian girls - her sister Anna included.

Verchenova admits that tennis star Sharapova is a role model - but she is adamant about the reasons.

"I am looking at Maria, not because of the way she looks but because of the way she plays," Verchenova explains. "I think Russian women are strong mentally. They are trying really hard and they are achieving things."

Verchenova is the first Russian to become a full-time member of the Ladies European Tour. She contended against golf heavyweight Anna Sorenstam at the 2008 Dubai Ladies Masters.

I'm not sure how good that makes her. It's been awhile since I watched golf.
