Lisa Cornwell Joins 'Golf Channel'

There's a new face at the Golf Channel, and we'll be seeing a lot of her: Lisa Cornwell has joined the golf network as an anchor on Golf Central.

Cornwell has a very interesting past. She was an accomplished junior golfer, a four-time winner of the Arkansas Women's State Amateur. She played with Tiger Woods as a junior, and has played with President Bill Clinton for the duration of her career, earliest days to present time. That's because Lisa and the former President are cousins.

After starting a broadcast career in local news, Cornwell moved to sports as a studio host, reporter and play-by-play announcer for the Big Ten Network. Most recently, she had been hosting the syndicated SEC Press Pass, a show she founded in 2011.

You can follow Lisa on Twiter: @LisaMCornwell.

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.
