Alabama Wins Golf Championships, Too

Here it is, the morning after the college football national championship game. And once again, Alabama is the winner, this time by a 45-40 score over Clemson. And those are both excellent golf programs, too, but since Bama was the winner this time, we'll focus on the Crimson Tide's golfers.

In recent years the Alabama men's golf team won national championships in 2013 and 2014. But this ain't Golf Dudes! We're golf babes, so what about the women's teams at Alabama? Alabama won the women's national championship in 2012, and perennially has strong teams. In fact, the defending national champion (as in, she won the 2015 championship tournament) is Alabama's Emma Talley:

The Alabama women's golf team has also produced many recent golfers who graduated onto the world's professional golf tours (as Emma surely will herself). A few of those golfers:

Brooke Pancake

Kathleen Ekey

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.
