Mi Hyang Lee Ties LPGA's 9-Hole Scoring Record

Wow, talk about a hot start: Mi Hyang Lee just tied the LPGA Tour's 9-hole scoring record over the first nine holes of her first round in the LPGA Founders Cup.

That record is 27 strokes, and Lee is the fifth golfer in LPGA history to do it. The other four are Amy Yang, Paula Creamer, I.K. Kim and Jimin Kang. Kang was the first, in 2005.

Lee, starting on the 10th hole, opened with a birdie and then an eagle. On the 12th hole (her third), she made her only par of the nine. She then reeled off six consecutive birdies to shoot 27, 9-under par on the par-36 nine.

Good work if you can get it!

You can keep track at the Founders Cup leaderboard.

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.
