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.

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.
