Bridget Dwyer

You know Bridget Dwyer from "The Big Break VI: Trump National" - the beautiful Hawaii native who finished as runner-up that season in the women's portion of the competition.

Here are a few things you may not know about Bridget:

  • She attended Punahou School, since made famous (on the mainland, anyway; it has always been famous in the islands) by Michelle Wie.

  • She was a three-time All-Scholar selection in college by the National Golf Coaches Association.

  • Which makes sense when you realize that Bridget earned degrees at UCLA in both economics (major) and Japanese (minor).

  • Beginning in high school and continuing today, Bridget works with the Hawaii Teen Leadership Academy, helping often troubled teens find a more positive path in life.

  • Since turning pro after helping UCLA win the national championship in 2004, Bridget has played on the Futures Tour, Women's Canadian Tour, West Coast Tour, and a tour I didn't even know existed, the Chinese Tour.
Bridget is on the Futures Tour this year, with a best finish so far of ninth.

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.
