Sharmila Nicollet, a leading woman golfer, and currently the only Indian on the Ladies European Tour.
A great combination of talent, personality and grit makes her potentially the most exciting woman athlete in the country.
Nicollet was born on 12 March, 1991 in Bangalore to a French father and her Indian Mother. Yes it is hard to believe that she is just 24.
Well, this is how she describe herself-
I’m a Professional Golfer. Nice as pie but fixed in my ways. A teddy bear in disguise with a hard candy shell. I call a spade a spade it just is what it is. Got good intuition and intentions. I’m very competitive and aggressive in my game and this helps me win tournaments. Self dependent and a total shopaholic.
Nicollet turned professional in 2009 when she was 18 years old. She is the youngest Indian golfer to qualify for Ladies European Tour. She is the second Indian to earn a full card on the Ladies European Tour.
She was a state level swimmer (with over 72 medals in state and national meets) and an athlete.
She played basketball, tennis and she love horse riding.
