Congrats are in order for Lexi Thompson, who picked up another sponsor today: the Zurich Insurance Group, longtime title sponsor of the PGA Tour's Zurich Classic in New Orleans. Not surprisingly, since it sponsors a PGA event, Zurich's "golf ambassadors" have previously all be men. Lexi is the first female Zurich Golf Ambassador.

From the news release:

The golf ambassador program has helped Zurich expand its reach in golf far beyond the Zurich Classic to engage with customers, brokers, employees, executives and charities on a global level throughout the year.

Thompson will display the Zurich logo on her left sleeve and represent the company in the growth of its women’s golf initiatives throughout the relationship. She will join Zurich and their guests in attendance at the 2015 Zurich Classic. Other Zurich Golf Ambassadors include Ben Crane, Billy Horschel, Justin Rose, Keegan Bradley, and Rickie Fowler.

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.
