Big Break Ireland: Nicole Smith

nicole smith big break ireland

And we've come to the end of ours series on the women of Big Break Ireland. We wrap up with Nicole Smith.

First, Smith's degree from the University of Tennessee is in Perspectives in Human Relations & Culture. I have no idea what that means. Which helps explain why I hold no degrees of my own.

Nicole has spent the past two years - 2010 and 2011 - playing full-time on the Futures Tour, and she's built a pretty good record. In 2010 her best finish was fifth and she finished 40th on money list. In 2011, her best finish was second and she finished 32nd on the money list.

Smith's career has been delayed a bit by injuries suffered in high school in college. But she also managed, in her amateur days, to win the prestigious Kathy Whitworth Invitational and record Top 15 finishes 16 times in college.

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.
