Kim Lewellen Named Golf Coach at Virginia

Congratulations to "Big Break" alum Kim Lewellen on being named the new women's golf coach at the University of Virginia:

Virginia athletics director Craig Littlepage announced today that Kim Lewellen has been named the Cavaliers new women's golf coach. She succeeds Jan Mann who announced her retirement in February. Mann directed the program for its first four seasons, including berths to NCAA Regional Championships the past three years and a 13th-place finish at the 2005 NCAA Championships.

Lewellen comes to Virginia after spending the past two seasons as the head women's coach at East Carolina. She led the Pirates to the program's first ever Conference USA Championship in 2006 and a runner-up finish this season. Her 2006 squad qualified for the NCAA East Regional, the third time a team from ECU had reached NCAA postseason play. This year's Pirate squad qualified an individual competitor for the NCAA East Regional.

Before taking over the program at East Carolina, Lewellen served as both the head men's and women's coach at The Citadel for the 2003-04 season.

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.
