Liebelei Lawrence is one of the contestants on Big Break Mexico, which debuts May 13 on Golf Channel. She's also a golfer who has had fully exempt status on a major world tour; in Liebelei's case, the Ladies European Tour.

In 2011, she played 15 LET tournaments with four Top 30 finishes, but had to go back to Q-School. She regained her card for 2012 and had two Top 30 finishes. In 2013, she has partial status on the LET and so far has gotten into two tournaments.

Liebelei is a child of the world: She has citizenship in three countries. Born in Greece to a Greek mother and American father, she spent most of her childhood in Luxembourg. So she has citizenship with Greece, the USA and Luxembourg. She also speaks five languages (and, as she notes in the biographical video below, is working on No. 6.)

As a teen she attended the Leadbetter Academy in Florida, then played collegiately at Vanderbilt.

In scores, Korean golfer Jeongeun Lee's name often includes the number "6." It appears in the scores as Jeongeun Lee6, for example. Or, sometimes, as Jeongeun6 Lee.

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.
