Olivia Cowan Wins LETAS' 2015 Order of Merit

Olivia Cowan may be dressed for the cold in the photo above, but she was on fire for much of 2015. And on Sunday she capped it off by winning the Order of Merit on the LET Access Series, which means Olivia has membership on the Ladies European Tour in 2016.

Olivia tied an LETAS record with three wins this season, two of which she recorded while still an amateur. (Her amateur victories this year include the Portuguese International Ladies Amateur Championship and the Spanish Ladies' Amateur Championship.)

After turning pro, Cowan won again, at the Norrporten Ladies Open.

Cowan went into the season-ending WPGA International Challenge leading the OOM, and already guaranteed her LET card for next year. But it's always more fun to win your way onto the big tour rather than "only" qualify. (Although "only" qualifying is pretty darn good, too!)

Cowan, from Germany, will be 20 years old when her rookie year on the LET begins next season. And she's definitely one to watch.

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.
