Anna Rawson and the Return of GolfPunk


(Screenshot used with permission of GolfPunk)

Back in 2003, a slick, attractive magazine called GolfPunk debuted in England. It's motto: "The Golf Mag for The Rest Of Us." Golf with an attitude. And it was a famous photoshoot with GolfPunk that garnered Anna Rawson some of her first major attention. (GolfPunk discovered Anna even before Golf Babes did!)

Alas, the magazine industry - the publishing industry, period - is a tough go. And GolfPunk went. The magazine's founders departed in 2006.

But now they - and GolfPunk - and Anna Rawson - are back. GolfPunk has relaunched in a digital-only format - you can read the first issue here - that is attractive, easy to navigate, and full of good stuff. It's viewable in your browser, but also on smartphones, iPads and other mobile devices.

And the first "Swingin' Sirens" feature in the first issue of the new GolfPunk features our old friend Anna in an interview, plus photos by Bo Bridges. In the interview Rawson explains what she's been up to since retiring from tour golf, and that includes work on a pilot television episode for CBS. You can jump straight to the Anna Rawson interview here.

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.
