Annie Park

Congratulations to Annie Park, winner of the 2013 NCAA Women's individual championship - and leader of the team champions, the University of Southern California.

USC steamrolled to victory, winning by 23 shots. And Park took the individual lead in the third round and didn't give it up, winning by six strokes over Duke's Lindy Duncan.

Park is just the seventh freshman to win the NCAA women's individual championship. Her 72-hole score was 10-under 278. You could say that Park finished her freshman year on a strong run: She won the PAC-12 conference championship, was co-medalist in the NCAA West Regional, and now has the NCAA crown.

Although she plays for USC, Park is a New Yorker. Length off the tee is one of her strong suits, something that helped her win the Nassau boys championship while just a junior at high school - setting a tournament scoring record (at Bethpage Black, no less) in the process.

With such an impressive run behind her, there is already speculation that Park is ready to turn pro.

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.
