A Conversation with Champions: LPGA Women and Their Heroes

Panelist Biographies:

Since her rookie year in 2002, Natalie has become an LPGA sensation. First-Team All-American at the University of Arizona, Natalie narrowly lost the LPGA Tour's 2002 Rookie of the Year title. In six seasons on tour, she has finished in the top 10 25 times--including a heartbreaking playoff loss to Mi Hyun Kim at the 2006 Jamie Farr Owens Corning Classic--and earned almost $2.5 million.  She has her own website, her own calendar and created the Natalie Gulbis Foundation.
