Anna Nordqvist

Anna Nordqvist always makes an impression. She's a 6-foot blonde, after all, and from Sweden, no less.

Now she has something in common with her idol, Annika Sorenstam, beyond just her country of origin and hair color. Now Anna is a major champion. Some might say she came out of nowhere to win the 2009 McDonalds LPGA Championship, but she really came out of a superb junior program in Sweden and college program at Arizona State. Avid followers of women's golf have known for some time about Anna's potential to be the next great Swede.

She's not the next great Swede just yet, of course. She has to back up this victory with others. But she certainly has now made an impression on the golf world.

Anna's Web site is under construction at AnnaNordqvist.com.

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.
