Hmmm, you might think a golfer wouldn't want to be buried in sand. But I suppose when you're having fun with friends on a beach - as Teresa Lu was the day this photo was taken - it's OK.

Teresa is a native of Taiwan (her first name is actually Hsiao-Ching) who has settled in California after coming to the U.S. to play the American Junior Golf Association Circuit in 2005. She turned pro the next year, and in 2007 was a rookie on the LPGA.

So although she's only 20 now, Teresa is already in her second year on tour. And on Sunday, she finished tied for third in the LPGA Ginn Open, her best finish to date. Lu's game appears to be a notch higher in 2008. She also had a Top 10 earlier in the season, and has made seven of seven cuts so far, after missing 10 cuts in 2007.
