Sydnee Michaels

Like a lot of great female junior golfers, Sydnee Michaels played on the boys team in high school. In fact, she was a three-time All-Temecula Valley selection (on the boys all-star team) during her years at Linfield Christian High School in Temecula, Calif.

Now Sydnee is entering her sophomore season on the UCLA women's golf team. As a freshman in the 2006-07 season, Sydnee earned her first collegiate victory. And it was a big one - she won the NCAA East Regional championship. She also made it through qualifying to play in the U.S. Women's Open this summer. In 2006, Sydnee made the cut in another LPGA major, the Kraft Nabisco Championship.

Here's a prediction for you: UCLA will win the women's national championship this coming season (sorry Duke). And probably the year after that, too. The Bruins' Top 3: Tiffany Joh, Sydnee Michaels, Ryann O'Toole. That's as good as any other Top 3 in the country, with the possible exception of Duke. But UCLA will have a very good bottom-of-the-order, too, with the best class of incoming freshmen in all of college golf: U.S. Women's Amateur champion Maria Jose Uribe and top-ranked juniors Stephanie Kono, Brianna Do and Glory Yang.

Thanks to Sydnee for sharing this photo.

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.
