Meghan Hardin One of AskMen.com's '99 Most Desirable'

Congratulations to our friend Meghan Hardin, whose "body of work," so to speak, has once again gotten her noticed well outside the realm of golf. The highly popular AskMen.com recently released its annual rankings of the "Top 99 Most Desirable Women" women. And Meghan makes the list at No. 83. That's one spot below Jen Stelter, one spot higher than Elizabeth Banks.

What does AskMen.com like about Meghan? Hey, what don't they like! Here's what they said:

Why is Meghan Hardin desirable?
It's not often that professional golfers crack the Top 99, but Meghan Hardin isn't your average golfer. The buxom blonde is not afraid to flaunt what she's got - witness her nearly nude, golf-themed photospread - but is also single-minded about achieving her athletic goals. "I am the future of golf," she proclaims on her website. We sure hope so.

Here are few images from Hardin's Instagram feed (follow her @meghanahardin):

Cheyenne Woods Joins the Winner's Circle

(Photo: @cheyenne_woods/Instagram)

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.

Mi Hyang Lee Nets Win in New Zealand

Congratulations to Mi Hyang Lee on winning the New Zealand Open, where Lee outran home favorite Lydia Ko to the finish line.

Mi Hyang shot a course-record 63 in the final round to beat Ko by one shot. Lee is a 20-year-old described as "bubbly" in this account of her victory. Her rookie year on the LPGA was 2012. (The New Zealand Open is a Ladies European Tour event.)

In 2013, Lee made 10 cuts in 17 starts on the LPGA (keep in mind she was only 19 when the 2013 season began). That included a round of 64 at the Manulife Financial LPGA Classic, her previous best tournament round as a pro. She also was seventh overall on the LPGA Tour in eagles last year.

Lee's win is being called, in some places, her first professional victory. But that is not the case: She won a Symetra Tour tournament in 2012, when she finished the Symetra season sixth on the money list.
