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:

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.

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.
