This photo was part of a feature on LET rookie Benedicte Toumpsin posted on the Ladies European Tour website recently.

Toumpsin is a native of Belgium who played her collegiate golf at the University of South Carolina. She earned LET rookie status by finishing 18th in Q-School late in 2010.

While at South Carolina, Toumpsin won the NCAA East Regional. Among her other achievements as an amateur, the LET notes: "She has a glittering amateur career, including victories at the Belgian National Championship in 2010 and 2007, the 2005 Belgium Masters and also represented Europe at The 2005 PING Junior Solheim Cup, as well as finishing fourth at the 2007 KLM Ladies Open in the Netherlands whilst still an amateur."

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.
