Michelle Piyapattra Wins 1st Women's Canadian Tour Event of 2015

The Canadian Women's Tour just wrapped up its first tournament of 2015, and the winner is Michelle Piyapattra. The tournament took place in Calgary at Glencoe Golf and Country Club, and was 36 holes in length.

Piyapattra shot rounds of 71 and 69, finishing at 140 and three shots ahead of runner-up Seul-Ki Park. It's a valuable victory for Michelle and not just for the winner's check: it also gets her into the LPGA's Canadian Pacific Women's Open later this year.

It's the second career win for Michelle in Canada; last year she won while still an amateur.

And you might recall something else Michelle won in 2015: Inclusion in Golf.com's Most Beautiful Women in Golf feature.

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.
