The Web site we most recently added to our sidebar links list is that of Mallory Blackwelder. Mallory, in her first LPGA Rookie Blog (video included), said that she'll be playing on the LPGA, LET and Duramed Futures Tour in 2010.

Mallory turned pro in May 2009 after a successful collegiate career at the University of Kentucky that included two victories. She also had a major amateur win at the 2007 Women's Western Amateur Championship.

Golf genes? Hers are pretty good. Her mother is Myra Blackwelder, who played the LPGA for 12 years and was Rookie of the Year in 1980; and her dad is Worth Blackwelder, a longtime LPGA caddie. He most recently caddied for Juli Inkster, but is on Mallory's bag in 2010.
