Carly Booth

Onetime amateur phenom Carly Booth is the winner of the Dinard Ladies Open on the LET Access Series. Booth claimed victory with a birdie on the first playoff hole, defeating Marion Ricordeau after both had finished on 206. It is, as far as I can determine, Booth's first victory in a professional tournament. She doesn't turn 20 until June.

Booth, from Scotland, won her club championship when she was only 11. The women's club championship, not the girls'. Throughout her mid-teens she dominated girls golf in Scotland, winning the Ladies Home Internationals in 2007 and 2009; the Scottish Girls Under-18 championship in 2007-08; and the Scottish Girls Under-21s in 2007. She played on Europe's Junior Ryder Cup team in 2006 and 2008 and on the Great Britain & Ireland Curtis Cup team in 2008.

Booth made it through LET Q-School and turned pro at age 17 in early 2010. Since turning pro, her best finish in an LET event to date is 19th place at the 2011 Ladies Scottish Open.

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.
