Checking In With Tisha Alyn Abrea

It's the time of year when college seniors everywhere are taking their final college photos and contemplating the future. That's true for college golfers, too, especially those with options both inside and outside of golf.

So when Tisha Alyn Abrea - a college golfer with options - posted the photo above, I decided to check in with her. As we told you when we wrote about Tisha previously, she's a broadcast journalism major at Cal State Fullerton who already has some significant on-the-job training: she's been getting airtime on a regional network in Southern California that programs for the Filipino-American community.

She's also an NCAA winner: Tisha had a terrific Fall season late in 2014, including victory at the Rose City Collegiate. So what are her plans? Will she focus on golf or on broadcasting as she leaves the college life?

"I plan on going professional," Abrea told Golf Babes. "I plan on going to Q-School this summer if I feel like I'm ready. I'll do the broadcasting thing after my golf career unless a golf broadcasting opportunity comes my way."

Unfortunately, Tisha's Spring season didn't build on the success of her Fall season after she suffered an injury.

"I ended really rough due to an injury at my conference championship. So it's been rough even thinking about going professional. But because of my success in the fall I don't want to give up trying. I haven't touched a club since conference, but I intend to hit it hard and get back into it in a week."

Best of luck to Tisha - and all the other graduating college golfers - as she chases the pro dream starting this summer.

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.
