Meet Pro Golfer Anna Rawson
Currently a Los Angeles, CA resident, Australian Anna Rawson is the only athlete who is both a professional golfer and model, as she enters the highest platform of professional female golfers on the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA).

Rawson ended the Final Round of the LPGA Qualifying Tournament carding three birdies, which made her first on the conditional status list of the LPGA.

“I am very excited to be apart of this elite and diverse group of athletes,” said Rawson, “My continuous goal is to raise the profile of women’s golf, and this new phase in my career will allow me to make more strides to do so.”

Anna has been a stellar golf talent since she was 13, as well as a much sought-after model. Anna graduated from USC before turning pro in golf and is noted for her fashion on the golf course.
Having already made a global impact on golf followers and fans to the sport, Rawson’s experienced a flood of attention due to her fashionable style on the course, from her signature wide-brim hats to Tom Ford Sunglasses.

The multi-talented 26 year-old placed second at the Swiss Open on the Ladies European Tour and participated in major fashion photo shoots in a myriad of magazines all over the world, such as GQ Spain, Vogue Japan, Cosmopolitan Finland, and GQ UK.
She was also named “The Most Popular Golfer” on the Ladies European Tour by GOLF Weekly readers.

As GQ writer Benjie Goodhart said about Rawson, “They say Tiger Woods made golf popular with people who previously felt excluded from the game.  This player could make golf popular with people who hate golf.”
