Caroline Martens Wins LET Q-School

The winner of the 2013 Ladies European Tour Q-School is Norwegian golfer Caroline Martens, who earns her tour card for the 2014 season. Martens won it easily, too - her final margin of victory was eight strokes. The LET explains Martens' recent injury history:

Having previously held Category 9b membership of the LET in 2012, Martens kept competitive by playing on the LET Access Series in 2013, but dislocated both of her shoulders during a tournament in Sweden in early September.

"It's been such a difficult year and I've worked so hard. Having this week going the way it did, it makes me feel like all the hard work I've put into it really paid off. I'm really looking forward to next year, getting started and improving on what I did here," she said.

Her Q-School performance certainly suggests Caroline is fully healed and ready for some good results in 2014.

Martens played NCAA golf at Louisiana State University (LSU), recording four Top 10 finishes. After college, Caroline played the Nordea Tour and LET Access Series before gaining the status mentioned in the blockquote above on the LET in 2012-13. In a limited number of appearances, her best finish to date in an LET tournament is a tie for ninth at the 2012 ISPS Handa Ladies British Masters.

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.
