Lotta Wahlin Retires

Lotta Wahlin has called an end to her career as a tour pro, with the LET's 2012 Prague Golf Masters serving as her final event.

Wahlin, from Sweden, had an 8-year pro career and posted two victories on the Ladies European Tour. Her career was on a major upward path beginning in 2006, when she finished 39th on the LET money list. The following year she improved to 21st. And in 2008, Lotta was 7th on the money list, won two LET tournaments plus another unofficial event.

Unfortunately, a "serious skin illness" arose and derailed her career; she started only two LET tournaments in 2010.

Lotta told the LET's website that she's tired of the travel and will look for a low-stress career, along with possibly going back to school.

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.
