Jee Young Lee

jee young lee picturesI'm becoming quite the fan of Jee Young Lee. The young Korean is major-league cute, and just look at that smile and try not to smile yourself. Plus, I'm a sucker for the Rubenesque.

Her nickname is "Jelly," and after learning this, I'm not sure I'll ever be able to watch her again without hearing Beyonce in my head ...

But I'm also a big fan of her game. This 21-year-old is one to keep your eye on if you're an LPGA fan. She's got length that only a few other women in the world possess. She's currently third on the LPGA in driving distance, one of just six women average more than 270 yards. She finished fourth on that list in 2006 with a 275.1-yard average.

She won as a 19-year-old in the LPGA-sanctioned CJ 9 Bridges tournament in Korea, which is what got her onto the LPGA Tour. She's come close a couple times since then, including last week when her weakness - putting - cost her dearly in a playoff against Suzann Pettersen. She has improved her putting greatly over the past couple years, however, and as her short game matures I think you'll see Jee Young Lee winning, and winning often.

And like many of the Korean players on the LPGA Tour, Lee is a big supporter of charities. She gave $10,000 to the LPGA-USGA Girls Golf program earlier this year.

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.
