Playful Pose in Zippy Golf Dress

That's a very "zippy" golf dress Sandra Gal is sporting in this photo, taken during a shoot prior to the LPGA's Founders Cup in 2014. The gray, white, black and pink outfit features a zipper-like pattern. Gal must have been in a playful mood when she selected this outfit, and she clearly was during the photo shoot based on her smiling pose.

When the LPGA Tour visits France, that means it's time for the gala reception at the Evian Masters.

Each year the LPGA Tour holds an awards gala at the end of the season to present the tour's player awards, such as Player of the Year and Rookie of the Year. In 2011, that gala was named for one of the tour's top sponsors and called the Rolex Reception.

And Sandra Gal was among the honorees. Gal didn't win an award, but she did win on the LPGA Tour for the first time in 2011. So at the Rolex Reception, she was recognized along with the other Rolex First Time Winners from the season.

Sandra Gal strikes a pose for photographers at a gala dinner following the third round of the 2011 Evian Masters in France. Gal shot a 76 on the course earlier in the day, but that didn't stop her from getting glammed up. The gala is a tradition at the Evian, and usually follows the third round. Gal finished the tournament at 1-over par 289.

Sandra Gal is pictured above during an LPGA photo shoot, something the tour likes to do at several tournaments a year with select players.

Although you can't tell it in this photo, Gal is one of the tallest players in women's golf. She's a 6-foot German - but she's not a boomer of the golf ball, she's more of a finesse player.

This photo of golfer Sandra Gal in a bikini was taken during photo shoots for the "Wilhelmina 7" project.

Back in 2008, the world-famous Wilhelmina modeling agency signed seven professional women golfers and announced plans to market those golfers as beauty icons. Gal was one of the "Wilhelmina 7." Unfortunately, the project didn't take off as planned. But those seven golfers did take part in multiple photo shoots.

Sandra Gal and Vicky Hurst, Part I

Golfers Sandra Gal and Vicky Hurst became good friends when both played golf in Florida (Hurst as a junior golfer, Gal as a collegiate golfer) and then both reached the LPGA Tour around the same time. We see them in two photos in this gallery.

Above, Hurst and Gal pose during a welcome reception for golfers playing in the 2010 HSBC Women's Champions tournament in Singapore. Hurst looks buzzworthy and Gal is rockin' the red dress.

The above image of Sandra Gal was taken in 2008 during a photo shoot prior to the Safeway International tournament. The year 2008 was Gal's rookie season on the LPGA Tour. She earned her tour card by going through Q-School at the end of 2007. Prior to that Gal was a successful collegiate golfer at the University of Florida and one of the top-ranked amateur women golfers in Europe.

Her first three seasons on the LPGA were solid but unspectacular. Then Gal, a native of Germany, broke through for her first victory at the 2011 LPGA Kia Classic.

Sandra Gal Black Dress

This image of Sandra Gal in a black dress is from another LPGA tournament photo shoot. But this photo shoot was a little more sophisticated, as Gal displays in that dress, standing in what appears to be a verdant garden. So it might not surprise you to learn that this photo was taken during the Evian Masters - in Paris.

Above, Sandra Gal wears a backless top as part of her ensemble for the Mojo 6 kickoff party in 2010.

What was the Mojo 6? It was an unofficial tournament on the 2010 LPGA schedule that was played in Jamaica using a format called "Raceway Golf." That format involved golfers playing six-hole match play matches and advancing through brackets.

Gal didn't actually play in the tournament itself - the field was limited to 16 golfers. But she made it to the party!

This is the second image in this gallery of Sandra Gal partying with her friend Vicky Hurst. Above, they pose at a kickoff event for the Mojo 6 exhibition tournament in Jamaica in 2010.

Alas, neither Gal nor Hurst actually played in that tournament, whose field was limited to 16. One spot in the field was held open while an online voting process was conducted that allowed fans to select the final tournament participant. Gal and Hurst both campaigned for the spot, but Beatriz Recari wound up winning it.
