If you don't follow women's amateur golf, you might not know this: But there are a lot of very good young German golfers on the way up. And Olivia Cowan is definitely on the way up.

She's so "up" that she just won her first professional tournament, doing so while still an amateur. The 19-year-old Cowan won the ASGI Ladies Open today in Switzerland, an event on the LET Access Series. The LETAS is the developmental circuit of the Ladies European Tour.

Cowan posted scores of 71-67-69 for a final score of 9-under par and a 3-shot winning margin.

Olivia is currently ranked No. 23 in the World Amateur Golf Rankings. She finished ninth in a previous LETAS start in 2015. And in amateur events Cowan has wins so far in 2015 at the Portuguese International Ladies Amateur Championship and the Spanish Ladies' Amateur Championship (which makes her Queen of Iberia, right?).

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.
