2014 Q-School Finalists: Stephanie Meadow

The Final Stage of LPGA Q-School begins on Dec. 3, and one of the top contenders there will be Stephanie Meadow. Meadow was exempt from Stage I, but did have to play Stage II and advanced with ease there, finished tied for 16th.

If Stephanie hits it big in professional golf - and there's every reason to think she will - she might become a star in America. First, she's a beautiful ginger, and they always stand out. But more importantly, she has a lovely Irish accent. And Americans are suckers for Irish, Scottish, English and Australian accents.

Why do we say there's every reason to think Stephanie will be a big success as a pro? Well, among other things, she made her professional debut earlier in 2014 at the U.S. Women's Open and finished tied for third place.

Meadow just completed four years at the University of Alabama (where she fit into the football culture just fine, as the top photo demonstrates). She was a 3-time, first-team All-America selection, and recorded nine NCAA tournament victories.

She also played for Team Great Britain & Ireland on the 2012 and 2014 Curtis Cup teams.

As noted, she came joint third in her professional debut at the 2014 U.S. Women's Open, and also finished third in the LET's Ladies European Masters.

Stephanie has some catching up to do in the points standings, but I won't be surprised if she winds up playing her way onto the 2015 European Solheim Cup team.

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.
