McKenzie Lyng Branching Out

McKenzie Lyng - you might know her better by her maiden name, McKenzie Jackson - is branching out into acting. The former Big Break cast member can currently be seen on TV appearing in her first commercial for the skincare product Proactiv. McKenzie is featured in the clip below that stars Sarah Michelle Gellar, and first appears at the 33-second mark:

Shorter versions of the commercial, ones focusing on Lyng's story alone, are also currently airing on select channels and in select markets.

"I am trying to get more into the commercials and different acting roles - hopefully some more opportunities come my way," McKenzie told us. To that end, she recently signed with an agency.

But she's still a professional golfer, too. She was known as McKenzie Jackson when she competed on the Golf Channel's Big Break Mexico series. But she became McKenzie Lyng on Oct. 25, 2014.

McKenzie's golf plans this year are to play Cactus Tour and Canadian Tour events, working her way toward LPGA Q-School.

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.
