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.

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.
