Giulia Molinaro

Giulia Molinaro is joining the LPGA Tour in 2014. The Italian golfer finished second on the Symetra Tour's 2013 money list, which means she graduates to the LPGA for next season.

Molinaro took up golf at the age of 12 and progressed quickly, becoming part of the Italian national team and playing in the Junior Ryder Cup for Europe. She headed to America to play college golf, attending the University of Arizona. And 2012 was her real breakout year. That season, Giulia was the PAC 12 Player of the Year and earned first-team All-America honors.

She turned pro in the latter half of 2012, and 2013 was her first season on the Symetra Tour. She hopes it's her last, too, because that would mean she has a good year as an LPGA rookie in 2014. But back to 2013: Giulia had five Top 10 finishes in 15 starts, and that included a victory at the Friends of Mission Charity Classic in May. She finishes strong, too, to secure her LPGA card, finishing third and fourth in the final two Symetra stops.

Welcome to the LPGA, Giulia!

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.
