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. (The KLPGA now uses that spelling, too.)

So who is Hyunju Yoo? She's the newest glamour girl on the KLPGA (Korean LPGA Tour). In 2016, SeoulSisters.com wrote, "Speaking of turning heads, Hyeonjoo Ryu was a new photographers’ favorite in 2016."

A few months ago, we saw Yoo referred to as "fast becoming a media darling" in Korea, where she has started gracing magazine covers and taking part in more photoshoots with sponsors and fashion outlets.

Hyunju hasn't yet won on the KLPGA. She's held the lead in a few tournaments, but so far in 2017 has a top finish of 25th. In 2016 her top finish was 11th place.

Yoo was born in 1994 and first appeared in a KLPGA tournament in 2011 when she was 17 years old.
