Virginia Espejo

Here's another new Ladies European Tour member for 2013: Virginia Espejo. The Spanish golfer finished tied for 20th at the final stage of LET Q-School, earning playing status for next year's schedule.

Virginia played her college golf at Southern Mississippi University. There, during her junior season, she achieved something that no other female Southern Miss golfer had done to that point: She carded a round in the 60s during tournament play.

In 2012, Virginia played five tournaments on the LET Access Series. She started her pro career off slow, missing the cut in the first three. But then she finished 38th at the Azores Ladies Open, and then 25th at the Banesto Tour Valencia.

And now she's made it through Q-School; clearly a golfer on an upward trajectory.

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.
