Jennifer Hahn

Jennifer Hahn is the latest young pro golfer to get her first win after turning professional on the Cactus Tour. Hahn's maiden pro win happened on June 10 at the Tour's Event No. 17 at Stallion Mountain in Las Vegas.

Hahn, who turned pro earlier this year after playing NCAA golf at Vanderbilt, shot rounds of 71-72-70 to finish at 3-under 213. That was good for a one-stroke win over runner-up Chirapat Jao-Jivanil. A front-nine 33 (that included an eagle on the second hole) in the final round propelled Hahn to the victory.

It had to be a particularly sweet victory for Hahn - even more than for "just" getting No. 1 - because it was a hometown victory. Hahn is from Las Vegas and played at Green Valley High School there.

Hahn posted three Top 10 finishes in her recently completed senior season at Vanderbilt. Her career highlights before this included winning the individual championship at the 2014 NCAA East Regional (leading Vanderbilt to the team championship), becoming at that time only the second Vandy female golfer to win an NCAA tournament. She also was co-medalist at the 2015 U.S. Women's Amateur.

In scores, Korean golfer Jeongeun Lee's name often includes the number "6." It appears in the scores as Jeongeun Lee6, for example. Or, sometimes, as Jeongeun6 Lee.

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.
