Anna Nordqvist powered Sweden to victory at the 2010 Comunitat Valenciana European Nations Cup in Spain alongside Sophie Gustafson and is one of the hottest golfers on the planet right now. Among her other golfing talents, she is known for her tremendous short game and unflappable demeanour.

Since attending LET Qualifying School at the end of 2009, she has experienced a meteoric rise to fame, winning a major championship as well as two other individual titles. She has also represented Europe at The Solheim Cup and earned Ryder Cup Wales Rookie of the Year honours.

Here she reveals that, aside from when on the golf course, she is right at home amongst her family and friends.
