Rebecca Artis Wins in Sweden

Rebecca Artis (nee Flood) won the Helsingborg Open in Sweden, beating Caroline Hedwall by a stroke in the Ladies European Tour event. Hedwall led by four entering the final round, but Artis shot 69 on a day of very high scores to catch her. Artis was one of only two players to break 70 in the final round.

Artis, from Australia, is in her fourth season playing the LET. In her previous three campaigns she's ranked middle-of-the-pack on the money list, with a highest placing of 45th in 2012. Prior to 2013, she had two Top 10 finishes with a best of third place; both those Top 10s were in 2012.

So she was trending up even before 2013, but Artis' career has really taken off this season. She had five Top 20s in LET events before the win in Sweden. That includes Top 10s in her previous two tournaments.

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.
