Camille Chevalier's 1st Pro Win: 2017 Hero Women's Indian Open

Camille Chevalier is a winner on the Ladies European Tour. The young French golfer earned pro victory No. 1 at the 2017 Hero Women's Indian Open by shooting the low score of the day in the final round - and by birdying the final two holes.

Chevalier closed with a 67 to catch and pass second-round leader Michele Thomson (71) and win by one stroke. Chevalier carded rounds of 68, 69 and 67 in the tournament, finishing at 12-under 204. It was only her 13th start on the Ladies European Tour since she turned pro. Her previous best finish was a tie for 16th at the Lacoste Ladies Open De France a few weeks ago.

Going into the tournament, Chevalier was 17th on the LET's Order of Merit and ranked No. 547 in the Rolex Rankings. She'll make impressive jumps on both lists after this victory.

Born in Marseille in 1993, Camille played NCAA golf at Indiana University. She ended her career as a Hoosier with the fifth-best scoring average in school history and the 73.61 average she posted in her senior season (2015-16) is the school record. As an amateur golfer, her biggest wins were at the 2015 French Amateur Championship and 2015 Biarritz Cup.

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.

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.
