Lana Lawless and Mianne Bagger are both professional golfers. Both are legally female, but they started their lives as men.

Lawless is a 57-year-old former SWAT team Californian policeman, who had sexual re-assignment surgery in 2005.
Meanwhile, the 44-year-old Bagger -- a Dane who grew up in Australia -- eventually joined the golfing paid ranks after, in her words, "becoming a transitioned woman" in 1995.
