Kelly Rose Kronen

kelly rose kronenKelly Rose Kronen will be a rookie on the Futures Tour this year. Kelly was introduced to the game by her father, and at age 12 dedicated herself to it fully. She was a top player in high school - at one point ranked the No. 1 golfer in New England - and went on to Barry University in Miami. In her freshman year, her father was diagnosed with cancer, and after her sophomore year Kronen made the decision to leave school and go back home to be with Dad. Her father has undergone treatment and is doing well today, but Kelly decided that returning to school wasn't what she wanted to do. Instead, she turned pro. And 2008 will be her first season as professional. She can play a full schedule on the Futures Tour, but like many young female professionals, whether she actually does depends in large part on finding sponsors to help finance the travel and tournament expenses.

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.
