German born golfer Sandra Gal began her LPGA career in 2008. Since then she has 1 win, 15 top 10 finishes, and more than $2 million in earnings. Gal cites painting as one her favorite pastimes off the golf course. She began painting at the age of three, encouraged by a family friend. She began golfing a couple of years later when her parents gave her a set of colored plastic clubs for her 5th birthday.
She says in her website bio:
In the mean time I had a bunch of other hobbies. I played tennis, I started ballet and violin, I got to do wakeboarding for a few years, I played theatre at school and of course I have always been painting. My mom still has some paintings from when I was about three years old, and since then you probably cannot even count them. It’s a great way for me to relax and let out my creative side.
Sandra Gal talks about her passion for painting in the video below.
