Lexi's First Major

Congratulations to Lexi Thompson on her first victory in a major championship. The first of many? Thompson won the 2014 Kraft Nabisco Championship, and did so rather comfortably. Her ultimate margin of victory was three over a very game Michelle Wie, but Lexi's lead was in no danger from the early point of the round where she first stretched it to four.

How many more majors do you think Lexi will win? She's only 19. It's easy to envision her winning many more - she's a special talent. But when you think about that question, keep in mind how many majors the "Big 3" of the late 1990s/early 2000s won: Se Ri Pak has 5, Karrie Webb has 7, Annika had 10.

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.
