Jessica Korda Wins in Bahamas

The LPGA's Bahama Mama of 2014 is Jessica Korda.

Korda won the 2014 Pure Silk Bahamas LPGA Classic by one shot over Stacy Lewis, shooting 66 in the final round to secure the victory. That 66 included birdies on the last two holes, and three of the final four holes.

It's the second career win for Korda on the LPGA. Her first was at the 2012 Australian Women's Open. Korda went into the tournament ranked No. 40 in the Rolex Rankings, and after the win she moved up to 24th.

This could be a big year for Korda, who certainly has the talent to be one of the best on tour. Despite some injury issues in 2013, she still managed to finish 25th on the LPGA money list, 15th in scoring average, and earn a berth on the United States' Solheim Cup team.

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.
