Katy Jarochowicz

katy jarochowicz

The lovely Katy J is Australian, a native of Wollongong (don't you love Aussie place names?) in New South Wales. Now 24, she turned pro in 2004 at the age of 21. That followed an amateur career in which she was first the No. 1-ranked junior in NSW, then the No. 1-ranked amateur in the state.

In 2003 Katy won the Australian Ladies Amateur Championship; in 2004 she represented Australia in the Espirito Santo Trophy (World Cup) competition. She also, along the way, won a couple team tournaments with her mates Carlie Butler (1999 NSW Ladies Foursomes Championship) and Sarah Kemp (2004 Tasmanian Ladies Foursomes Championship).

Since turning pro, Jarochowicz has competed on Australia's ALPG Tour, on the Ladies European Tour, on the Futures Tour, and on the Sweden-based Telia Tour. She currently has non-exempt status on the LET and is playing primarily on the Telia Tour this year. She'll be back at the LET Qualifying Tournament later in the year hoping to earn full LET playing privileges for 2008.

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.
