Another Win for Annie Park

Annie Park has only been a pro since May. But she just won her second tournament on the Symetra Tour.

Annie caught Lee Lopez in the final round - that's some USC-on-UCLA crime - of the PHC Classic, which concluded on Aug. 2. She did it with birdies on the final two holes. And then in the playoff between the two, Park won it with a birdie on the third extra hole.

This is just Park's sixth start as a pro after leaving Southern Cal following the end of her junior season. In those six starts, Annie has finished 19th, 47th, 13th, first, 15th and first again.

That's a pretty good start to your rookie season!

Going into the PHC Classic, Park led the Symetra Tour in scoring average, and she was 15th in money. With her latest first-place check, she'll move into the Top 5 and be in great position to play her way onto the LPGA Tour for next season.

Here's the winning putt:

And the trophy shot:

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.
