Hee Young Park



Hee Young Park claimed her second career win on the LPGA Tour at the 2013 Manulife Financial LPGA Classic, and she did it in recordsetting fashion. Or, rather, record-tying fashion.

Park and Angela Stanford finished 72 holes tied at 26-under-par 258, and then Hee Young won with a birdie on the third playoff hole. It's Park's second LPGA win, after the 2011 CME Titleholders, but her ninth career victory as a professional (six wins in Korea plus one win on the Ladies Asian Tour).

About that record business: Both Park and Stanford now share the LPGA's all-time 72-hole scoring record of 258. That mark was first established by Karen Stupples in 2004, and Park and Stanford are the first golfers to match it since. Park and Stanford also came within a stroke of tying the tour's all-time record for most strokes under par. Annika Sorenstam holds that record at 27-under, set in 2001.

So a pretty good week for "Rocket," Hee Young Park!

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.
