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.

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.

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.
