Amy Yang Gets 1st LPGA Win

Amy Yang is a winner on the LPGA Tour, although she won in her home country of Korea to make it happen. Yang claimed the 2013 LPGA KEB HanaBank Championship, beating Hee Kyung Seo in a playoff.

As noted, it's Amy's first LPGA victory, but she had important wins before. When she was still an amateur, and only 16 years old, Amy won the LET's ANZ Ladies Masters. (Her family moved from Korea to Australia when Amy was 15, and she now lives in Florida.) She won twice more on the Ladies European Tour in 2008, at the Ladies German Open and the Scandinavian TPC hosted by Annika. And Amy won on the KLPGA in 2011.

Along the way, Yang had many good finishes on the LPGA, including a playoff loss to Yani Tseng and multiple Top 5 finishes in majors. And she's finished inside the Top 15 on the LPGA money list three straight years, 2010-12. So that first win was only a matter of time.

Now that time is here.

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.
