Jimin Kang

Jimin Kang, the golfer with the perpetual smile, really has something to smile about now: She won the Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia tournament. Kang closed with a round of 65 to edge Juli Inkster by a stroke.

It's Kang's second career win on the LPGA, but her first since 2005. And 2005 was her first full season on tour, so Win No. 2 was due. Kang played consistently in the intervening years, just consistently in the middle of the pack.

Entering the Sime Darby, Kang had one Top 10 finish in 17 starts in 2010. Now she was one win in 18 starts. Big improvement.

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.
