Sandra Gal Writing Diary for USA Today

It was New Year's Eve when Sandra Gal posted the above pic to Instagram, and she captioned it, "2015 already tastes good."

It probably tastes even better today: As I write this, LPGA players are in action at the tour's season-opener. And Sandra is now a diarist for USA Today. An editor's note that preceded Gal's first entry told readers that "(t)his season LPGA golfer Sandra Gal will be writing a weekly diary for USA Today Sports to share her adventures on the Tour."

What does Sandra have to say in her diary? Among other things:

I have never played an LPGA event so close to my college stomping grounds as here, just around the corner from Gainesville and the University of Florida. This feels like a full circle moment to me, because not only did I learn about the 25 second attention span during my coursework toward my degree in Advertising, but being a part of the College of Journalism and Communications I also learned that writing for, well, USA Today, is a big deal. My recipe? Be a pro golfer for seven years first, win, smile, oh, and be German.

The year could get even better for Gal later on, if she makes the European Solheim Cup team: the Cup is played in Germany this year.

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.
