After a stellar amateur career and five up-and-down years as an LPGA Tour pro, Natalie Gulbis finally broke through for her first win with a playoff victory over Jeong Jang at the 2007 Evian Masters.
"Natalie has a very long, very powerful move through the ball," says Top 100 Teacher Dana Rader, founder of the Dana Rader Golf School at the Ballantyne Resort in Charlotte, N.C. "But it's a swing that features a unique compensating move: Because her right forearm is still under her left forearm through impact, she drops her head and right shoulder down after impact to create room to release her forearms. It's hardly textbook, but it's worked well enough for Natalie to put her in the top 50 in all-time LPGA earnings after just six seasons."
