Nikki DiSanto

Nikki DiSanto picturesIf you know Nikki DiSanto, it's almost certainly from her two seasons on "The Big Break" ("Big Break V: Hawaii" and "Big Break VII: Reunion"). Some of you may have spotted her in a USGA commercial (lumber yard!).

I've learned quite a bit more about Nikki over the past day or so, and she's got quite an interesting and diverse resume. There's much more to Nikki than The Golf Channel ever allowed us to see (the bikini pic notwithstanding). She competes in professional long-drive competitions and works as a model, that much you probably know.

She's also a TV host (travel shows, interviewing celebs on the red carpet) and actress. She spent time with The Groundlings, the storied improvisational troup that produced many of the top comedic actors of the past 30 years. She's worked in theater, appearing in a production of "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof," among other plays.

She has a degree in broadcast journalism.

Nikki speaks Spanish and Russian. She plays guitar, classical guitar and bass. She can ride a unicycle, walk a tightrope and perform ventriloquism. She's also a whiz with a yo-yo and can hula-hoop circles around the rest of us. And she's played nearly every sport and worked in just about every martial art discipline you can name.

Bet you didn't know all that.

But you probably knew she's a Golf Babe.

Why There's a 6 at the End of Jeongeun Lee's Name

Should we say that Jeongeun Lee possesses quite a bit of ... six appeal? If you follow women's golf and, specifically, check the scores of tournaments, then you have noticed something odd. In scores, Korean golfer Jeongeun Lee's name often includes the number "6." It appears in the scores as Jeongeun Lee6, for example. Or, sometimes, as Jeongeun6 Lee.

Hyunju Yoo (Hyeonjoo Ryu): Newest Glamour Girl of the KLPGA

First, let's clear up why we've listed two names for this golfer in the headline. When she first came on the scene, she (and everyone else) spelled her name "Hyeonjoo Ryu." But recently on social media, she started spelling it "Hyunju Yoo." And we figure she knows better than anyone how to translate the Korean spelling of her name into an English spelling.
