Maria Balikoeva (formerly Verchenova) (Russian: Мари́я Вита́льевна Балико́ева, born 27 March 1986) is a Russian professional golfer. She is the first Russian to become a full-time member of the Ladies European Tour. She has several top-10 finishes.
"I am looking at Maria [Sharapova], not because of the way she looks but because of the way she plays, (...) I think Russian women are strong mentally. They are trying really hard and they are achieving things."
“I always like to bring something extra special to the golf course, so if I’m wearing sexier, more stylish stuff like a shorter skirt or a nice tennis-style dress and people notice then great. ”
