The next installment of the Golf Channel's "Big Break" series premieres on April 20. "Big Break Prince Edward Island" features a cast of 12, six men and six women, and over the next six days we'll spotlight each of the female contestants. We begin today with Brenda McLarnon.

Brenda is a native of Belfast, but attended college at the College of Charleston and now resides in Charleston, S.C. She turned pro in 2005 and has played primarily on the Futures Tour since then.

The Golf Channel bio of Brenda reports:

An Irish lass who can make you thirsty just talking to her, she is as comfortable with a pint in her hand as a putter. And like a number on a scorecard defining success, she leaves no room for interpretation.

"People will probably hate me, but that's their problem," said the Belfast, Ireland native. "I don't care what people think of me. If you don’t like me, that's your loss!"


Brenda won one tournament while in college and was a member of the 2002 JUCO national championship team. As a pro, her best Futures Tour finish to date is 27th.

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.

LPGA Golfers Enjoy the Bahamas Beachside and Poolside

Social media gives us a glimpse into the lives of professional golfers the likes of which we could never have gotten a mere 10 years ago. One word tells you all you need to know: "selfie." And when LPGA players visit a tournament site such as, say the Bahamas, selfies sometimes involve bikinis and other swimsuits. The LPGA Tour plays this week at the Pure Silk Bahamas LPGA Classic. They are staying at the Atlantis Resort, which has a bevy of pools and other water features for them to enjoy; and are also right on the beach. Make that "beaches," since the resort is surrounded by sand and ocean, too. Below are a few of the swimsuit selfies LPGA golfers have shared on their social media accounts this week. First, Danielle Kang: Here are two showing Hee Young Park (left) and her sister Ju Young Park. Ju Young is an LPGA rookie in 2015.
