Texas Tech's Gabby Barker Wins Opener

At the end of the 2015-16 college golf season, Gabby Barker won her conference's Player of the Year Award. At the beginning of the 2016-17 college season, Barker has won the season-opening tournament.

Barker's junior season on the Texas Tech University women's golf team began with a bang on Tuesday - a victory in the Red Raider Invitational in Lubbock. Barker carded rounds of 70, 73 and 71 to finish at 2-under 214 on the tough, windswept Rawls Course. That included a 34 over her final nine, good for a 1-stroke victory over Iowa's Jessica Ip.

Gabby, from Caldwell, Idaho, and a member of the Shoshone-Paiute Tribe, won the Big 12 Women's Golf Player of the Year award last May following her sophomore season. She was the first golfer ever from Texas Tech to claim that award. Her 2015-16 season included a victory at the Betsy Rawls Invitational, one of the biggest tournaments of the NCAA year.

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.
