Emily Talley Becomes Brand Ambassador for Bandit Wines

It figures Emily Talley has an appreciation for wine. She grew up in the Napa Valley, after all.

Talley, a native of Napa, Calif., now gets to enjoy a glass of red (or white, or ...) as part of the job: The Big Break NFL champ and 2014 Symetra Tour member is a new "brand ambassador" for Bandit wines, a brand from Napa Valley's Trinchero Family Estates.

"Emily is the perfect pairing for Bandit as she is big fan of the brand, and as a Napa native, our community is a big fan of Emily," Bandit's senior marketing manager, John Garaventa, said in the company press release. Added Emily: "It is so special to be joining forces with a company from my hometown and I will do my best to make TFE and Bandit proud!"

Emily will represent Bandit at Symetra Tour events and at the Big Break Invitational tournament (and, hopefully, on the LPGA Tour eventually). More from the press release: "Since going pro, she has been splitting her time between California and Colorado in the offseason training at Napa’s Silverado Resort, Napa Valley Country Club, and CU in Boulder. Emily is planning to return to Northern California full-time this fall."

A golfer (especially one from Napa) is a natural fit to help market Bandit, which touts itself as a wine for those on the go. It's the packaging that sets Bandit apart: "Bandit features premium varietal wines packaged in lightweight, portable and environmentally friendly Tetra Pak cartons," the Bandit website explains. "Do not let the box fool you — the Tetra Pak is unbreakable, portable and recyclable. It is the perfect pick for wine drinkers on the go. With the inconvenient expense of manufacturing bottles and corks, the Tetra Pak just makes sense (and cents)! It allows for more eco- and cost-friendly shipping, which protects the Earth and enables the winemakers to reinvest their time, energy and cash toward making each varietal a one-of-a-kind experience."

Why There's a 6 at the End of Jeongeun Lee's Name

Should we say that Jeongeun Lee possesses quite a bit of ... six appeal? If you follow women's golf and, specifically, check the scores of tournaments, then you have noticed something odd. In scores, Korean golfer Jeongeun Lee's name often includes the number "6." It appears in the scores as Jeongeun Lee6, for example. Or, sometimes, as Jeongeun6 Lee.

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.
