There are plenty of photos out there of Morgan Pressel showing the LPGA star in her element: on the golf course, swinging a club. But this gallery is focused on something else — "glamour shots" of the photogenic Pressel.

The photos in this gallery show Pressel dressed up for events, for parties or posing for photo shoots.

Getting to Know Mo

Morgan Pressel was born on May 23, 1988 in Tampa, Fla., and is a lifelong resident of Florida.

She was precocious in her golf career, first playing her way into the U.S. Women's Open at age the age of 12 in 2001. At the time, it made her the youngest-ever golfer to play that major championship (a record since broken).

And at the time Pressel won an LPGA major (more on that to come), she was the youngest-ever LPGA major winner (also a record since broken).

After those early career heroics, Pressel settled into a solid, productive career on the LPGA Tour. She made many Solheim Cup appearances and was frequently in the mix in top tournaments.

Kicking It Up In Heels

That's a sporty pair of kicks that Morgan Pressel is, well, sporting in the photo above. The image was taken during tournament week of the 2014 Founders Cup on the LPGA Tour. It seems almost as impressive to me that Pressel (or any other woman) can walk in heels that high as it does that she can win golf tournaments.

Well, sort of. This image shows Pressel on a 2011 visit to the Mobile Carnival Museum in Mobile, Alabama. Pressel and several other players did a photo call there when the LPGA was in town for a tournament.

The museum tracks showcases the history of Carnival and Mardi Gras in Mobile, a history that goes back more than 300 years.

Pressel's Major Wins

Pressel has won two majors in her career, one amateur major and one professional major.

Her amateur major was won at the 2005 U.S. Women's Amateur, where she defeated Maru Martinez 9-and-8 in the championship match. That same year she nearly won the U.S. Women's Open as an amateur, finishing tied for second after Birdie Kim's miracle chip-on on the final hole.

But Pressel did win a pro major after turning pro at the 2007 ANA Inspiration (then called the Kraft Nabisco Championship). She was just shy of 19 years old, which, at the time, made her the youngest-ever winner of an LPGA major (a record since broken).
