The people have spoken.
The final results of the Twitter vote to determine the final sponsor exemption for next month’s LPGA ShopRite Classic are in, and it will be India's Sharmila Nicollet teeing it up alongside some of the biggest stars in the womens game.
Nicollet topped Golf Channel’s Blair O’Neal, Scotland’s Carly Booth and Bolivia’s Susan Benavides in the social media poll, which was available to vote on since May 1.
Nicollet, a Ladies European Tour player from India with more than 350,000 Twitter followers, took to the social media website to thank her fans for the opportunity, as did the other contestants who were gracious in defeat.
Thank you for the opportunity with this brilliant idea! It has definitely created a buzz in India around the game of golf. Looking forward! https://t.co/5OSOpGrryC— Sharmila Nicollet (@MissNicollet) May 8, 2017
So be on the lookout for Nicollet at the 54-hole event scheduled for June 2-4 in Galloway, N.J.
The literal fan favorite is sure to turn a few heads.
