Winter has descended on our part of the world. Darn that polar vortex! No golf for us this weekend. And perhaps it is very cold where you are, too, right now.
But it's not cold where Belen Mozo is.
The LPGA golfer is in Colombia, part vacation (Belen's longtime boyfriend, pro tennis player Robert Farah, is Colombian), part working vacation. The vacation part is visible in these photos. The "working vacation" part is in the daily golf practice and fitness training she is doing in preparation for the 2017 LPGA season.
And for good measure:
Jaye Marie Green claimed medalist honors at the LPGA's 2016 final-stage qualifying tournament, beating runner-up Olafia Kristinsdottir by one stroke.
And guess what: This is the second time Green has won Q-School. She was also medalist at the final stage in 2013, and she is the first golfer in all the years the event has been played in Daytona Beach, Fla. (since 1991) to win it twice.
Jaye, still only 22 years old, turned pro at age 19 and her rookie LPGA season was in 2014. She has three career Top 10 finishes thus far and nearly half a million in career earnings.
In the just-completed 2016 season, Green finished 112th on the money list. She didn't have to play Q-School, but doing so - and especially winning - improves her status for 2017 and guarantees her a full season. Don't be surprised if Jaye makes a leap in 2017.

Charley Hull, one of the bright young stars in women's golf, broke through for her first LPGA Tour victory in the 2016 season-ender. And it was a big one: the CME Group Tour Championship.
Hull was five off the pace following the second round, but a 66 in the third round moved her up to first place. Then Charley fired another 66 in the final round to finish at 19-under 269 and win by two strokes. She even broke the tournament scoring record. Cristie Kerr had the previous mark of 271.
Hull, still only 20 years old, appeared in the Solheim Cup playing for Team Europe before she was an LPGA Tour member and before her first professional win. Charley's first Solheim appearance was in 2013; she made the squad again in 2015. Pro win No. 1 happened on the Ladies European Tour in 2014, and her rookie season on the LPGA was in 2015.
She missed only one cut as a rookie last year, finishing 48th on the money list with two Top 10 finishes. In 2016, she entered the season-ender the Tour Championship with four Top 10s. Now she has five, plus the victory.
And, as you can see, she looks very different off the course than on it.
