As 2012 draws near its close, Sydnee Michaels can look back on a very successful rookie season on the LPGA Tour.

The former UCLA standout made 19 starts on the LPGA and earned just under $200,000, comfortably keeping her card for near year. Sydnee's best showing of the season was seventh place at the Safeway Classic in August, and she had multiple other Top 20 finishes, too.

Those results helped her climb to No. 121 in the world rankings, an excellent result for a golfer in her first year on the LPGA. In fact, Michaels finished fourth on the Rolex Rookie of the Year points list.

As for her stats, Sydnee's best finishes on the LPGA charts were 20th place in both driving distance (259 yards) and Putts per GIR (1.8).

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.
