Ginger Howard

golfer ginger howardGinger Howard is the winner of the LPGA Q-School second-stage qualifier, completed on Sept. 30 in Florida. And with four great rounds: 69, 70, 68, 65. That totals to a 16-under par score of 272.

Ginger is only 17 years old. The petition that Alexis Thompson filed to gain LPGA membership for 2012 is the one that has gotten all the attention, but Howard needed to petition for the chance to take part in Q-School. And the LPGA is looking smart for saying yes. Should she earn her LPGA Tour card, Ginger would be about a month shy of turning 18 when the 2012 LPGA season begins. That's that same path that Morgan Pressel took the LPGA.

As a junior golfer, Howard was runner-up at the 2010 Junior PGA Championship and was a member of the USA's Junior Ryder Cup team. After a string of strong showings in top amateur tournaments in the first half of 2011, Ginger turned pro in June. Between then and the start of Q-School, she won five times on the Suncoast Tour in Florida.

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.
