Cheyenne Woods Joins the Winner's Circle

Cheyenne Woods won a mini-tour tournament in 2013, but hadn't yet scored a win on one of the top women's tours. Until now! Cheyenne recorded Win No. 1 on an important tour in Australia at the 2014 Volvik RACV Ladies Masters. Woods won by two strokes over 17-year-old amateur Minjee Lee with a final score of 16-under 276.

She earned €37,500, obviously her biggest payday to date since turning pro for the start of 2013. In fact, that's more money than Cheyenne earned in all of her 11 LET starts in 2013, which was €24,000. Woods is a gamer, and she's a worker - that's clear to anyone who takes the time to look at her track record and notices that each time she moves up to a new level of competition, she takes a little adjustment time and then gets better. (The Constructivist and About.com Golf have both pointed this out numerous times.)

Congratulations to Cheyenne. She's not just a "name," she has game, I bet the third time will be the charm for her at LPGA Q-School later this year. Meantime, watch out for more success for her on the LET.

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.
