Is Sharmila Nicollet The Best Looking Golfer?

Last updated on: July 26, 2023 10:24 IST

Indian pro golfer Sharmila Nicollet loves the game just as much as she adores being a 'fashion fanatic'.

How many golfers can you count as cool as her?

She's been flying the flag for itty-bitty upper thigh-grazing jorts (denim shorts), tops cropped way above the belly button and fishnet sarongs for a while now. Sit up and watch, folks.

Part-French, part-Kannada, the Bengaluru Golf Girl, who started playing at 11, has been gathering plaudits for her handicap. When she is off the green -- and even when she's 'sweating out the stress and embracing the endorphin rush' -- she collects taalis for sleek dressing as she follows her motto 'conformity is the only real fashion crime'.

And before you start guessing the details of her shot in a tournament in Florida, take a moment to appreciate her graceful gazelle-like physique -- she stands 5 feet 11 in her socks -- and how great Sharmila looks on a golf course in the most casual of clothes.
A follower aptly puts it: 'You're better than a triple-scoop ice cream with sprinkles'.

Tips: Note the charms of a denim vest. Secondly, do realise that every pair of phata-purana jeans, about to be retired, has the potential -- yay -- to become some sexy jorts.

Like the shoes?
