Russian Swinger Set To Be The Sharapova Of Golf

Ladies golf has seen a surge in popularity in recent years, and it’s easy to see why with women like Natalie Gulbis & Anna Rawson bringing some sex appeal to the swinging set.

Now there’s a new fair maiden of the fairway who might turn some heads when she tees off - Maria Verchenova, straight from that golfing hotbed of Russia. And she’s hoping to be to golf what fellow Russia Maria Sharapova is to tennis.

GOLF365.COM has an interview with the first Russian player to become a full-time member of the Ladies’ European Tour. Verchenova discusses how it wasn’t easy to practice in a country where golf isn’t exactly a popular sport:

Russia doesn’t have programs such as Korea, Japan, countries in Europe or the US have. We have support in tennis and hockey but not in golf so this is something we have to work on. It has been tough for me to get to this level considering the difficulties which came to me along my young career. I wish I could have had more support and experienced people to rely on in the past. But the exciting part is that I can be this person for the next generation and this is priceless! I will do all my best to be a good pioneer and give back.

And Maria also shares her admiration for Sharapova, but not just because of her fashion sense:

“I am looking at Maria, not because of the way she looks but because of the way she plays,” Verchenova explains. “I think Russian women are strong mentally. They are trying really hard and they are achieving things.”
