Congratulations to Rebecca Lee-Bentham, co-medalist (with Moriya Jutanugarn) at the 2012 LPGA Q-School.

So we'll be seeing Rebecca on the LPGA Tour in 2013. But she won't be a rookie. Lee-Bentham was an LPGA member in 2012, getting into 14 tournaments with a best finish of 47th. She earned her tour card last year on her first attempt at Q-School.

Rebecca is from Canada (Richmond Hill, Ontario, to be exact). She won the 2010 Canadian Junior Girls Championship and 2011 Canadian Women's Amateur Championship. She spent one year on the University of Texas golf team, then turned pro late in 2011.

You can follow her on Twitter at @RLeeBentham.

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.
