Vote for Karen Palacios-Jansen in Golf Channel's Instructor Search

OK, Golf Babes Nation, it's time to do our civic duty and cast votes: Three finalists in the Golf Channel Instructor Search have been announced, and one of those three will be getting his - or, hopefully, her - own series on the Golf Channel.

And one of those three finalists is Karen Palacios-Jansen, a k a KPJ. I recall first seeing KP - the "J" wasn't there yet - many years ago in the infomercials for the Perfect Club. Remember them? But if you've watched Golf Channel at all over the past decade, you probably already are familiar with Karen, who has been featured on network programming many times.

She's a regular on the Top 50 Women Instructors list every year going back to 1998. She's been an LPGA regional teacher of the year, and an LPGA national teacher of the year. Karen's not just a golf instructor; she's also a certified personal trainer and has her own golf events management company. She'll bring a wide variety of experience and expertise to her own Golf Channel show.

And she's also married to speedskating legend Dan Jansen (hence KP became KPJ). C'mon, if she can earn Dan Jansen's vote, doesn't she deserve yours?

Besides, do we really need another beer-sunscreen-and-cigar-scented old dude on the Golf Channel? No, we need the lovely and talented Karen Palacios-Jansen.

You can vote through December 15, but you know what they say: Vote early and vote often. Click that link to go to the voting site.

Hyunju Yoo (Hyeonjoo Ryu): Newest Glamour Girl of the KLPGA

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.
