Muni He (aka Lily He)

Who is Muni He? She's a highly promising amateur golfer who just completed her freshman season at the University of Southern California. And, as is obvious, if the pro golf thing doesn't work out (it will), there's always modeling.

Muni - friends call her Lily - was born in China but grew up in Southern California playing the junior circuit. She first gained national prominence in 2014 with an Honorable Mention selection as a Rolex Junior All-American. She made the first team in 2016.

In 2015, Muni qualified to play in the U.S. Women's Open and made the cut. She played in her first two professional tournaments, the Blue Bay LPGA and the Hyundai China Ladies Open.

More appearances in pro tournaments followed in 2016, including a tie for 30th place at the Reignwood LPGA Classic. She also played the Hyundai China Ladies Open and Omega Dubai Ladies Masters.

So despite her young age - still just 19 - Muni He has a multi-continent, multi-pro-tour resume already.

And her freshman season as a USC Trojan? Southern Cal always has a very strong women's golf team. Muni made the tournament roster for nine of USC's 12 tournaments with a best finish of seventh place.

At the time this is written, He is ranked No. 47 in the World Amateur Golf Rankings.

Victory at the Meijer for Brooke Henderson

Brooke Henderson (right, above, with her sister and caddie Brittany) earned her first LPGA Tour win of 2017 at the Meijer Classic. Henderson finished with a 2-stroke margin over runners-up Lexi Thompson and Michelle Wie.

Henderson was hot from the start in the Meijer, shooting a season-best 63 in Round 1. Her worst score of the week was a 67 and she finished with a 66. Her final score was 17-under 263.

Henderson, still just 19, won twice in 2016 and once in 2015 on the LPGA Tour. No golfer from Canada has yet won 10 or more times on the LPGA Tour. The only question with Henderson is not if she reaches double digits in wins - of course she will! (barring injury, of course) - but how quickly she becomes the tour's all-time-winningest Canadian golfer.

Inky Wins at ShopRite

I.K. Kim didn't have a Top 10 on the LPGA Tour in the 2017 season entering the ShopRite LPGA Classic. And after? Not only did "Inky" get that first Top 10 - she got the win.

Kim shot 69 in the final round to finish at 11-under 202. That was two strokes better than runner-up Anna Nordqvist, who was going for her third consecutive victory in the ShopRite.

It was Kim's fourth career win on the LPGA Tour, and her first since the 2016 Reignwood LPGA Classic in China. She also won the Ladies European Tour in 2016 at the ISPS Handa Ladies European Masters.

Nanna Koerstz Madsen

Nanna Koerstz Madsen of Denmark posted her second victory of the 2017 Symetra Tour season on Sunday, June 4, at the Fuccillo Kia Classic of New York. In her first year playing the Symetra, Madsen closed with a 66 to finish at 8-under 205, one stroke ahead of runners-up Kim Welch and Daniela Iacobelli.

It was Nanna's sixth start so far on the Symetra Tour, and she's yet to finish lower than 15th. Her previous win came at the Symetra Classic in late April.

Madsen, age 22, has won as a pro before, however. Her rookie season on the Ladies European Tour was 2015, and in 2016 she won the LET's Tipsport Golf Masters tournament.

Watch Michelle Wie Swing Left-Handed

How good - or bad - is Michelle Wie's left-handed golf swing? You can judge for yourself with this clip, but taking into account she's swinging in chunky heels and cut-off jean shorts ....

And here's a couple other Wiezy scenes we don't normally see. First, via a Spapchat filter, here's goth Wie:

And here is Michelle sporting a nose ring:

Linda Henriksson Claims Victory on LETAS

Finland isn't a country typically associated with great golf. But there are a slew of young, female Finnish golfers, both on pro tours and at American colleges, who are starting to change that.

One of them is Linda Henriksson, who just claimed her first victory on the LET Access Series, the feeder circuit to the Ladies European Tour. Linda won the 2017 VP Bank Ladies Open in Switzerland, a tournament that concluded on May 6.

There was an odd ending to regulation play. The final round was played in very blustery conditions, very tough on scoring: Not a single player broke par in the final round. Henriksson's even-par 72 was tied for low round of the day, and she finished at 4-under 212. That was a total she thought would be good enough to win and, indeed, Henriksson appeared to have a 1-stroke victory.

But it turned out the scoreboard operators had made a mistake: Nina Pegova, of Russia, was actually one stroke better than her score appeared on the scoreboard. Pegova also finished at 4-under. So instead of winning by a shot, Henriksson had to go into a playoff.

Not to worry, thought - Linda ended it with a birdie on the first extra hole.

"I was extremely nervous in this play-off, my knees were trembling, and the last putt took an hour," Henriksson afterward.

She can rest easy about her schedule for the rest of the year now, having secured - along with the first victory - entry into all remaining LETAS events in 2017.

She's also pretty good at trick shots:

Ha-Neul Kim Wins in Japan

Ha-Neul Kim is a winner again on Japan's LPGA circuit. Kim claimed the title at the 2017 JLPGA CyberAgent Ladies Golf Tournament at Grand Fields Country Club in Shizuoka, Japan, a tournament that concluded on April 30.

It was sweet revenge for Ha-Neul, who barely missed the trophy in this event a year ago. At the 2016 tournament, Ha-Neul got into a playoff, only to lose when a putt lipped out. No such problem this year, although once again Kim needed a playoff to claim the victory. On the first extra hole, Kim knocked it close to the hole on her approach, then sank the birdie putt for the win.

This was Kim's first victory of 2017, but her fourth career win on the JLPGA. She's been playing the JLPGA full-time since 2015. Prior to that, Ha-Neul was an 8-time winner in her native Korea on the KLPGA, including the 2011 Hite Jinro Championship, one of the KLPGA's majors. One of her wins in Japan - the 2016 Japan LPGA Tour Championship Ricoh Cup - is a JLPGA major.

Ha-Neul also teamed with Inbee Park to win the 2013 Mission Hills World Ladies Championship.

Maiden Victory for Klara Spilkova on the LET

Klara Spilkova won the Lalla Meryem Cup in Morocco on Sunday, claiming her first title on the Ladies European Tour.

Klara did it with a bogey-free final round of 66, that included six birdies - the last two on the 13th and 14th holes. She parred out from there, including sinking a testy par putt on the final hole.

Suzann Pettersen had a chance to catch Spilkova and force a playoff by birdying the last hole, but didn't. Pettersen finished in second place, one stroke behind Spilkova's winning total of 280 (8-under par).

Spilkova is 22 years old and from the Czech Republic. As you can probably tell from the photos, she also does some modeling.

Prior to the Lalla Meryem Cup, Klara had 92 career starts on the LET. She turned pro in 2010, when she was only 17 years old.

In her 92 prior starts on the LET, Klara had 11 career Top 10 finishes, and her 66 in the final round in Morocco matches her career low on the LET.

Lilia Vu Wins 3rd In a Row for UCLA

UCLA sophomore Lilia Vu is one hot golfer. How hot? Three-wins-in-a-row hot.

Vu won the Silverado Showdown in Napa, Calif., a tournament played April 9-11, sharing first place (there was no playoff) with Hannah Kim of Northwestern. Her final round 71 included a birdie on the 15th hole and then a birdie on the final hole to grab co-medalist honors.

It's the third consecutive NCAA tournament win for Lilia, whose second-round 63 set a new school 18-hole scoring record. And Vu is just the second UCLA women's golfer ever to win three tournaments in a row (the first was Charlotte Mayorkas).

Vu's previous two victories this season were in the Spring Break Classic in Hawaii and UCLA's own Bruin Wave Invitational.

Lilia, from California, is currently ranked 18th in the World Amateur Golf Rankings, but this latest win will surely move her up a few notches. The same is true of Golfweek's college rankings, where Vu is currently sits eighth.

Roberta Liti's First Top 10? She Made It a Win

Roberta Liti is a junior on the Arizona State women's golf team. And going into the 2017 Ping/ASU Invitational - a big tournament in NCAA women's golf - Liti had not yet posted a Top 10 finish in a college golf tournament.

She has now - and Roberta now has a victory, too.

Liti beat her ASU teammate Monica Vaughn by a stroke to record NCAA win No. 1 - and career Top 10 No. 1 - finishing at 10-under 206. She shot rounds of 69, 69 and 68. It was a great tournament all-around for the host school, as Arizona State also won the team title, and with a tournament record score of 25-under.

Roberta is from Siena, Italy. She won the Italian Championship in 2013 and was runner-up in the Girls' British Open Amateur Championship in 2013. She's been a steady performer at Arizona State since arriving, and now she's a winner.

Matilda Castren Notches 7th NCAA Victory

The 2017 Clemson Invitational was a pretty great tournament for the Florida State University women's golf team. The squad won its school-record sixth team tournament title of the season. And Matilda Castren won her school-record seventh career championship.

Castren is a senior on the FSU team, originally from Finland. And she's spent her career at Florida State earning All-Academic and All-America honors ... and winning tournaments.

The Clemson Invitational win was Castren's second of the 2016-17 NCAA golf season, and the seventh overall of her collegiate career. As a freshman in 2013-14, Matilda had eight Top 10 finishes in 10 NCAA starts and a scoring average of 71.83. So far in her senior season, Matilda has six Top 10s in nine starts and a scoring average of 70.62. Her career scoring average of 72.23 is a Florida State women's record.

From the Florida State sports information office:

Castren (Espoo, Finland) was in a tie for 15th place after a first round 72. She moved into a tie for second in the individual standings with a school-record tying 65 in the second round and won the event with a 2-under par score of 70 in the third round. Castren finished the event with a 9-under par total of 207. ...

Castren has now won individual championships at the Florida State March-Up (spring 2014), Web.com/Marsh Landing Invitational (spring 2014), Jacksonville Classic (fall 2015), Florida Challenge (spring 2016), NCAA Shoal Creek Regional Championship (spring 2016), Jim West Challenge (fall 2016), and now the Clemson Invitational (spring 2017). In addition, she added to her on-going school record with her 24th career top-10 individual finish.

Castren is definitely a golfer to keep an eye on as she moves closer to a professional career.

Daniela Darquea Makes History for Ecuador

Daniela Darquea notched her first victory as a professional golfer at the Symetra Tour's 2017 IOA Championship. Daniela is from Quito, Ecuador, and was already the first Ecuadorian golfer to earn any status on the LPGA Tour. Now she's the first to post a win on the Symetra Tour or LPGA Tour.

Darquea holed out for eagle on the 13th hole of the final round, then, for good measure, added a final-hole birdie. She wound up with a 3-stroke victory. She entered the tournament in 17th place on the tour's early season money list; the victory jumps her up to second place.

Darquea did have a previous win in a professional tournament, however, just not a tour victory: She won the LPGA Q-School Stage I qualifier late in 2016. She should get into a handful of LPGA tournaments, but might spend most of her time in 2017 on the Symetra Tour.

That Q-School qualifier win was after Daniela turned pro following a collegiate career at the University of Miami in Florida.

Tania Tare: Trick Shot Goals

Melissa Reid Wins Oates Vic Open

Photo: GolfPunk

The 2017 season is off to a great start for England's Melissa Reid. Mel won the Oates Vic Open in Australia in a playoff over Sandra Gal, winning it on the third extra hole.

The Oates Vic Open is a tournament cosanctioned by the Ladies European Tour and the ALPG Tour. Melissa and Sandra were close to each the whole time after both started with first-round scores of 67. Reid had a 70 in Round 2, then went into the lead with a third-round 67.

In the final round, Gal chased down Reid and tied her, shooting 69 to Reid's 72. That left them tied at 16-under 276. They matched scores on the first two playoff holes, then Reid won it with a par on the third playoff hole.

It's the sixth career LET victory for Reid, who was Gal's teammate on the European squad at the Solheim Cup in both 2011 and 2015.

Meet Angela Akins, Sergio Garcia's Beloved

Sergio Garcia is getting married, and isn't he the lucky one: His better half is Angela Akins, former Golf Channel and Fox Sports Southwest reporter and accomplished golfer.

It's no surprise that Angela and Sergio were on the road to marriage. They each shared photos throughout the past year on social media of their adventures together. And Angela was on Sergio's arm at the most recent Ryder Cup Gala Dinner.

Their engagement was announced in mid-2016, so Sergio's tweet merely confirms that the wedding is on for this year.

Most recently she was a reporter and interviewer for the Golf Channel, a role she had beginning in 2015.

Prior to that, Akins had reporting and hosting jobs with Fox Sports Southwest, including hosting a five-hour Friday night show about Texas high school football.

Speaking of football: Any Texas football fans reading this might recognize Angela's last name. The Akins family includes some Texas football legends.

Angela's grandfather, Ray Akins, won nearly 300 games as a high school football coach.

Angela's father, Marty Akins, is, according to Wikipedia, the only wishbone quarterback ever named first-team All-American. Marty quarterbacked the Texas Longhorns for three seasons in the early 1970s, and Texas coach Darrell Royal called him "the best all around athlete I ever coached."

And Angela's cousin is New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees.

And what about Akins on the golf course? Hey, she might be able to beat Sergio ... if she can negotiate enough strokes! She's a past women's club champion at Spanish Oaks Golf Club in the Austin suburbs.

And Angela played college golf at the University of Texas. She was an academic all-conference selection in 2007-08, and received her Bachelor of Journalism degree from UT.

Congratulations and best wishes to Angela and Sergio.
