Melanie Collins Back for 'Big Break Palm Beaches'

We're quite certain that Melanie Collins won herself a legion of fans when she cohosted Big Break Florida early in 2014. So we're quite certain that there'll be many happy Golf Channel viewers hearing the news that Collins is returning as cohost of the next Big Break, which begins airing in February 2015.

Collins cohosts Big Break The Palm Beaches FL with Tom Abbott. The series is the 23rd season of The Big Break. (Alas, Melanie will be the only woman on the new Big Break - it's an all-male cast of golfers.)

Melanie's career in sports broadcasting continues to trend up, up, up. As part of the Yahoo Sports team in 2014, she even worked the world's biggest sporting event, the World Cup.

She can be seen regularly on Yahoo Sports, and, during the college football season just past, as a sideline reporter on the CBS Sports Network.

Collins has been spotted in other high-profile gigs, too, such as filling in for Michelle Beadle on ESPN's SportsNation.

On her website, from which the screenshot above is taken, her "About Me" page includes this rundown:

"Melanie Collins is a Sports and Entertainment host, anchor and reporter. She is currently the face of Yahoo! Sports, co-host of Big Break on Golf Channel and contributor to The Insider on CBS. Collins will report from the Olympics, World Cup, Super Bowl and World Series in the coming year, among other marquee sporting events. Prior to joining Yahoo! Sports, she covered the NBA for NBA-TV and Turner Sports, College Football and Basketball for the Big Ten Network and Total College Sports, as well as Major League Baseball for MLB.com. She's hosted segments on PGA.com, PGATour.com and Nascar.com."

It's a pretty easy call to say that Melanie is well on her way to being a star.

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.

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.
