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.

Brooke Pancake

Kathleen Ekey

Stephanie Meadow

Camilla Lennarth

Jennifer Kirby

Rhea Nair

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.
