India golf star Sharmila Nicollet recently grabbed eyeballs after ending her 18-month title drought by defeating Neha Tripathi in the play offs of the 2018 Hero WPGT. The glamorous golfer, touted as one of the hottest players on the circuit, has set temperatures soaring every time she hit the course. Is the hotness tag too much to handle? "I think it's embedded in my persona. I do not go out of my way to look glamorous. Being glamorous comes naturally to me and it definitely infuses a feel-good factor. I swear by the dictum: Look good to play well," Sharmila told portal, 4Moles, yesterday.

The Indo-French player, who became the youngest Indian golfer to qualify for the Ladies European Tour, said she would just like to see more girls playing golf. "Parents much encourage their girls to take up the sport. The day is not far when we'll see a string of women golfers making their mark on the global terrain. A golf boom, especially women's golf, definitely awaits India in the next few years," she added.
