Sharmila Nicollet Featured in Courtyard by Marriott Campaign

Courtyard by Marriott recently ran a promotion called the "Elevator Pitch," a campaign around its Young Entrepreneur Challenge. And Indian golfer Sharmila Nicollet was a big part of the campaign in Marriott International Asia Pacific territory. Watch the video:

Entries for the contest are closed, so don't get any last-minute ideas for submissions. The last minute is already past. The contest was described this way by Marriott International Asia Pacific: "Courtyard by Marriott is looking for the next generation of entrepreneurs with big dreams and big ideas. We are calling for entries for those with a great business idea - be it an innovation, a product or a service. If you think you have what it takes, submit your idea before 28th September 2014 for chance to win 1 million rupees."

A microsite about the contest on the India Times website explains that more than 1,000 submissions were received. Those are currently being whittled down to five finalists, and finally, one winner will be selected.

The microsite prominently displays Nicollet's role in promoting the Young Entrepreneur Challenge, and says she is "currently the only Indian on the Ladies European Tour. Her sharp skills, bold personality and savvy style have helped her stay ahead of the game."

"Bold personality" certainly suits Sharmila, as Golf Babes' Twitter followers would know. We've often retweeted her over the years. If you follow her (@MissNicollet) you'll frequently laugh and sometimes scratch your head, but never be bored.

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.
