Taylor Collins Wins 'Big Break Mexico'

Congratulations to Taylor Collins, your Big Break Mexico champion. Collins played Matthew Galloway in an 18-hole championship match, and beat Galloway by a 2-up score.

And what does Collins win as the BBM champ? A cool $50,000 first-place check, plus more than $50,000 in additional cash and prizes chipped in by various show sponsors.

Oh: Taylor also gets to play in the Lorena Ochoa Invitational in November on the LPGA Tour.

Collins graduated from Nova Southeastern University in 2011 with a degree in sports management. Taylor won three individual titles while at Nova Southeastern, and her team won the NCAA Division II National Championship three times. And one of Taylor's three individual wins was the NCAA Division II National Championship in 2011.

In 2012, Collins made 15 starts on the LPGA Futures Tour, which included one Top 10 finish (fifth place at the Riviera Nayarit Classic). Her best showing so far in 2013 on the Futures Tour is a tie for 29th.

Here's a screen cap of Collins from the bio video made by Golf Channel:

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.
